No Fear

no fearThe first thing I see is a FB message that my oldest friend is safe.

“Safe from what?”

That means others are unsafe – in danger.

Only then do I find out another city is under siege. Not by a gunman outside a Mac Donalds but by fear.

This is the fuel in New York, Philadelphia, Paris, Mombay, Nice, Muenchen.

This has to stop.

“Violence is not outside it is within”Swami said.

So to the fear.

I had a poster of Dan Osman doing the crucifix high above the Valley floor.

No Fear was the brand. I stared at it for hours wondering how he could have no fear.

Now I realise that is is within us – this fear.

We create it and we have the choice not to.
