Fear and the Earth Element within



Fear is one of the themes that destabilizes our root, the earth element within us. Here are a few powerful words to consider on fear, and a gentle suggestion on how to proactively go about healing it.


Historically pandemics have forced humans to break with their past and imagine a world anew. This one is no different. It’s a portal, a gateway between one world and the next. We can choose to walk through it dragging the carcasses of our prejudices, our hatred, our avarice, our data banks and dead ideas, our dead rivers and smoky skies. Or we can walk through lightly, with little luggage, ready to imagine another world. And ready to fight for it. - Arundhati Roy
