On courage, bravery:

Here’s a little chapter from my third book, and it is important because we are now living our lives in fear, fear of the infinitely small, fear of our own bodies, fear of the other, really all others, and just fear. If we are to get out of this mess they’ve created for us, we will need to develop righteous anger and then courage so we can actually fight back and not remain, lifeless, and scared shitless at home for the rest of our existence… Let’s go brothers and sisters it’s time to awake, it’s time to BE BRAVE, UNITE AND FIGHT THIS SHITE!

“A brave man acknowledges the strength of others.”

― Veronica Roth, Divergent

“Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free.”

― Jim Morrison

MUSING: now we have so much fear of death, of the unknown, of the other. This whole idea of being separated with each other, dare I say divided is a ploy, an illusion promoted by our superficial and materialistic culture. We are truly lost in this reality that is slowly destroying the fabric of life itself, and of our deeper soul… it might be time to snap out of the spell, no? ADDENDUM… especially now with the spectre of communism, totalitarianism, and Fascism rearing their heads with this bullshit…
