the real fears of the land

it's definitely not the paps. in fact, the extremist troublemakers are more fearsome and u cannot anticipate what their antics might orchestrate to.

the real fears are neither about actually paps or the troublemakers. it's more of practical daily living matters. things like getting sick and not having enough money to seek treatment. having children and worry they might not make it through the stressful education system. when would one face the prospect of losing his job. or for those who have lost theirs, when would the next job be available to them. when it's available, would the pay be sufficient to provide comfortably for the entire family.....

the young have their fears. the working persons have theirs. the poor fear whether there would be a next meal. the sick fear dying from lack of money to treat their ailment and not really the sickness inflicted. the aged fear they might die alone without being discovered until the stench of their decaying corpse attracts some attention.

there are much anxieties, apprehension and FEARS. some are real; some unfounded.

2010 is a year of venturing into the unknown and unpredictable. the gov tries to re-assure us that growth could be 3 - 5%. that jobs availablity are increasing. that we must re-skill, upskill and multi-skill. now what if we are only singularly skilled? would one face the fate of redundancy. does being multi-skilled enable one to have an increased pay or better pay or just another pay cut or stagnant pay?

gov is putting many in a very disadvantaged position. all their exuberating sermons hide another unexplained FEAR. it sounded more like "if u don't heed our advices or follow our instructions, you shall get it!" Get it?

to overcome all such FEARS, it really depends on how you tune yourself. if you tune into the paps' channel, obviously the FEARs become very real. if you tune into your own inner channel, then all those FEARS seem irrelevant.

human beings are very versatile creatures. we are neither equipped with fangs or sabre tooth to hunt but we are given a very powerful brain to think. if we do not think too much and get ourselves over-stuffed with FEARS, we should remain happy and positive.

the secret to overcome all FEARS is to remain HAPPY, POSITIVE & SELF-SUFFICIENT. fear tells u that u cannot make it. well, that's FEAR. you tell FEAR, "I can make it cos i m human!"
