Fear is the only thing

From an interesting dream, I have come to some startling conclusions. Fear drives most of our behaviors. We tend to overcompensate for our fears, which results in many of our actions being less than useful.

Fear of loss causes one to take from others
Fear of love causes one to express hate
Fear of poverty causes one to enact greed
Fear of success causes one to accept failure
Fear of impotentence causes one to overindulge in sex addictions
Fear of being thought stupid causes one to always want be right, and often leads to arrogance
Fear of sobriety causes one to drink heavily
Fear of happiness causes one to choose sorrow
Fear of the easy path causes one to choose the hard path

We should not be afraid of living. When choosing how we live we must always remember to let our actions be driven by something other than our basic instinct to fear the unknown. This lesson came to me in a dream in which I realized once again that God is within us all, in the form of loving compassion. Fear is the reason why.

Welcome to Zweble

Contained within this site are what will seem to the reader to be a series of short stories. Such a description would be dead wrong. For the most part these are my travels into the dream scape where some believe that we exist in other realities (our spiritual presence seemingly cannot be argued since we awaken with a vision of the environment).

Many of us have constant, deep and richly filled dreams. The sad thing is that most of these experiences go undocumented. This blog attempts to close the loophole of lost dreams.

In addition to dreams we sometimes explore the fantastic and improbable stark reality of our waking world. Topics appear on this blog that only our imaginations can dream up. If you would like to be able to post your dreams, please send an email to tcarternyc(at)hotmail(dot)com.
