Imagine a World Without Fear
What would it feel like to live in a world free of fear? Imagine a world where women are free from harassment by men, people of color are not afraid of being harassed by police, and immigrants and refugees are welcomed and cared for. Conflicts are settled through non-violent means, and governments all over the world work to reduce climate change. These are just a few of the changes that would make life a better place.
The feeling of fear is not based on reality, but on our perception. When we focus on fear, it feeds and multiplies and we fail to live in the light of faith. When we focus on our fear, we starve faith. However, when we focus on our faith, we experience peace. By focusing on our faith and allowing it to grow, we become more confident and compassionate. That’s what we should be aiming for.
