Through the Eyes of Fear
by Chief Joseph and John Cali
Mark Twain, one of my favorite
authors, said near the end of his life, “I am an old man and have
known a great many troubles, but most of them never happened.”
If you pay even scant attention to the mainstream news
media, you know the world is riddled with fear today. Fear of high
oil prices, fear of earthquakes and other natural disasters, fear
of faltering national economies, fear of terrorists, and so forth.
Some days it seems everyone is running scared,
anticipating only more gloom and doom in the days and years ahead.
The world is indeed a scary, dangerous place if you look at it
through the eyes of fear.
Mark Twain’s wise words were never more timely than
today. Most of the troubles we’ve had in our lives never happened.
Fear magnifies the problems we really do have all out of
proportion. Sometimes they become self-fulfilling prophecies. That
is the power of fear. But the power of love is greater.
Most often, the worst-case scenario depicted by fear
never comes to pass. If you really trust in an all-loving divine
presence in our lives, no matter what you call it, you cannot live
in fear. Sure, our planet has problems. But there are far more
acts of kindness and love than there are acts of violence and
Let’s put our focus on all the good in the world instead
of imagining troubles that never happen. See through the eyes of
love, not the eyes of fear.
Here’s Chief Joseph.
As many of you know, we are fond of saying you create
your own realities. Sometimes that concept gets “beaten to death”
in its overuse. Other times it’s used as a “weapon” to beat up on
someone for creating a negative experience.
We use the concept only to explain how it is you get what
you get in life. There is no blame, no guilt, no judgment here. It
simply is. It’s how the Universe works.
Yes, there are plenty of problems “out there” in your world today.
That’s what many of you focus on many of your waking hours.
But, as John said, there are also many acts of kindness
and love — millions more, in fact, than acts of violence and
You can spend endless hours debating with one another as
to why certain people have such negative, disaster-ridden lives,
and why others live seemingly charmed lives with good fortune
meeting them almost everywhere they turn.
That debate is, in our opinion, an exercise in futility.
It doesn’t really matter if you believe you create your
own reality. And you don’t have to explain how you, or anyone
else, have the life experiences you or they have.
The fact is, friends, you have whatever experiences you’re
having. Period! Can you change those experiences? Absolutely!
Let’s take this discussion out of the realm of
spirituality for a moment, and just focus on some practical
aspects of your everyday lives.
You have many choices available to you every waking
moment. You can’t possibly choose all of them at once. But you can
choose one. For example, you can choose whether to take the bus or
drive your car to work or to visit a friend.
The end result is you get where you want to go. What
brought you there? Your choice to go to work or see your friend.
Your focus, as manifested in your choice, is what brought you
Focus is the key word here. Your ability to focus is a
powerful tool. The direction of your focus is what
determines your life experiences.
Let’s say all the “gloom-and-doomers” out there are wailing about
the price of oil — or global warming — or terrorists — or on and
on ad nauseam.
They obviously are focusing on all the potential disasters
looming over your world. But there are still many who choose to
focus on all the good, the beauty, the joy that’s equally
available to you in your world today.
If you spend most of your waking hours worried about oil
prices, you’re probably going to create financial challenges for
yourselves. If, on the other hand, you focus on all the abundance
you already have in your lives, knowing the price of oil has
nothing to do with your abundance — only your focus does — you’re
probably going to feel joyful, even if everyone around you is
Looking at your lives through the eyes of fear creates a
vibration of fear which only grows stronger with time. Looking at
your lives through the eyes of love will make that vibration grow
It all depends on what you choose to focus on most of the
time. Do you focus on what you want? Or on what you don’t want?
Certainly you can see your focus, what you think about
mostly, is the primary determiner of your experiences. You could
be walking down a street in a “bad” neighborhood where others are
scared and worried, and you would be totally safe. Your focus, and
the vibration of your focus, keeps you safe. You simply don’t have
vibrational access to anything or anyone that could harm you.
As has been said, there is nothing to fear but fear
Fear is a choice. Love is a choice. Choose wisely.
P.S. from John: Last week, one of our Chief Joseph
forum members started a discussion on this very subject. There
were lots of insightful comments and questions. Joseph and I
picked the subject for this article before that discussion
started. An interesting “coincidence.”
