Love vs. Fear Debate

Contentious to my Fearlessness Psychology (and viewpoint) [1] is the way many people and groups construct the dichotomy of "Love" vs. "Fear" (especially in the esoteric religous traditions and 'new agey' spiritualities)--and, so for e.g., I offer you to take up this debate with serious study and discernment. I have many publications on this Love and Fear issue [2]... and, for the purpose of this blog I'll offer one excerpt from a typical writer in this (unsatisfactory) dichotomous (binary)…

In Search of Fearlessness itself is a very intriguing phrase, which has spiritual (theological), mindful (philosophical) and historical import for humanity, as well as more practical psychosocial, cultural, and political and economic implications. I wish to begin a series of FM blogs on this topic with emphasis on the "research institute" of this name and its publishing and educational role of liberation. I am inspired to write this out and share it because most people in…

Who Legitimately Can Call Who Fearful?

I've always been interested in the question: Who legitimately can call who fearful? What I mean is, who is qualified to do so? Who is allowed to by the other person (or by society) that is so being labeled "fearful"? And who of course is actually fearful? Are they admitting they are fearful or are they covering the fear up with bravado (for e.g.,)? Is the one labeling the other fearful, actually the fearful themselves and only projecting fear onto another? Is only a 'transcendent…

[RMF note:] Likely THE MOST COMMON assumption in looking at the “great divide” of ontology, epistemology and axiology in world history, especially in the historical era of documenting human behavior, is probably the divide between “materialist” vs. “spiritualist” worldview perspectives. Much of philosophy and theology has been particularly involved in this debate. In many ways each of us lives out this dynamic, more or less consciously, each and every day--influencing who we…

Simple mind leads to inevitable reductionist outlook for fearlessness package to the masses (creating the longest subject line in the process)

So hi all,   Arguably, i am the most uneducated...most simple member of the Fearlessness Movement...perhaps this affords me some licence to roam a little, and learn through trial and error rather than serious consideration of well researched articles. This will always be my disclaimer...that is, i am certainly not the brightest...but i do mean well. I really want things to be better in the world, and this fearlessness project is where I have set up my stall, because intuitively for me, this is…

The relationship between perception of threat and the experience of fear

 Hello... I have been working on a theory of consciousness and the experience of fear forms a important part of my understanding of consciousness. I'm glad to be sharing my ideas on this group. An excerpt from my book about fear is as follows..... The relation between perception of the stimulus as a potential threat and the experience of fear.... "A body executes the fight-flight response to get itself out of danger quickly. Persistent presence of threat or prolongation of perception of threat…

Hedges, certainly a radical leftist, is talking here about elites (especially in America today) who are "psychopathic" in his view (and he is not the only one saying this), who will destroy (and self-destruct) because that's the end result of their…
