Let us expose on how our minds are enclosed due to our limited views. Our beliefs which depends on our perspective has a big effect on us moving forward. Understanding is the key to the room of knowledge hidden by the door of our ignorance.
For the most when thinking of going to the fire, they think of going to hell, but for me, I see that light as going to heaven. Fire represents conquering fear, understanding what is unknown, passing the trials of life, and feeling the heat of love in the cold of temptations. The more we open our minds the more the realization enters and the harder the challenge we stand the more we grow. Prejudice is a great obstacle to our mental grasp, let us be practical and not jump into conclusion ahead of time.
With a clouded mind of superstition we wear a mask of confusion. We are depriving our golden opportunity to develop a higher level of awareness. The power of our consciousness has a big impact on how we live our reality. As human beings, with a more complex developed brain for mental capacity, we must be thoughtful on facing life's trials. With responsibility we have the ability to make our unconscious be conscious.
Our subconscious mind, which process most of reality experience and responsible with our automatic response, always seeks to be in comfort. The longing for comfort sometimes results in this uncomfortable situation we get into we call fear. Mankind will be stuck in its primitive state with the uncontrollable defense mechanism.
FEAR, some thinkers defines it as False Evidence/Expectations Appearing Real, is just an illusion when we understand that life is all about growth and death is nothing but change. Fire devours the body into ashes, but not the spirit. Only the pure pass to see the light of life: reason to love will guide us to have the clarity of our minds when we are in the darkness of life.
Success is a process in which one must face challenge and change like a great obstacle to get to the goal. Fear is this blockage of our longing destiny and this makes us our own worst enemy. The psychological military training about conquering fear is a great practice to apply to our daily lives in order to surpass our difficulty to achieve dream goals. They undergo a strict mental training in which they must conquer their own fear or let their mind be conquered by it.
Fear is like a fire it works like a disease, it is contagious. Some people who might suffer a mental sickness called paranoia spreads fear because of something they don't understand. There is also a great amount of fallacy with our common outlooks which are based on superstition which are causing fear to us and are stopping human progress. When we see ourselves as a prey, with our ego, we become the predator. The real enemy is faceless to face it, take the fight within.
Hell is just a faculty of imagination also called fear, when we die with fear it manifest into our consciousness and our consciousness is our spirit. The human spirit can only be cut by the edge of fear. The human spirit is like a fire that it needs to burn any matter of our lives and it can be extinguished by the water of our assurance of our old ideas.
