Is It Really A Scary World?
In a genuinely scary situation, we have no time to be scared as we have something to deal with which overrides fear. Fear derives from rumour – every good filmmaker knows how to achieve this. Merely listening to people talk, with their beliefs in this and that, reminds us how scary the world is! The media is full of scaremongering – so much so that it becomes a comic.
If we wrap our self up in a cosy bubble, we will worry that everything can pop our bubble, and so we feel vulnerable. This bubble is our self-image, which is the cause of our suffering as we have to protect it constantly.
If we have pierced our bubble and immersed our self in this scary world, we are dealing with it moment by moment, and it’s no longer scary.
