Excerpt About Human Life
Fear of Admitting Our LostnessOur situation really is much more difficult, much more profound than we allow ourselves to see for a long time. That’s why we speak of the terror of the situation – because it is so frightening to finally realize and admit how lost we are, and how at the mercy we are of so many elements that we have no handle on. The terror of the situation has a lot to do with how much we believe what we think we know, with how much we are caught in the gravity of our planet of conventional reality, believing it to be the center of the universe – and sometimes all that exists. We usually do not realize that our experience of reality has to shift only a little bit and all will disappear, leaving us totally terrified.
