Every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it with the handle of anxiety or the handle of faith.
Fear makes us do weird things.
Last week, after a cellphone was found on a Turkish Airlines flight, the captain declared an emergency, diverted the flight, dumped fuel over Germany, and made an emergency landing in Warsaw, escorted by military jets, where it was warmly received by emergency crews and police.
Just two months ago the same thing happened in Canada, after an airport employee left a phone on board, prompting an emergency landing in Regina.
This is hardly a measured, reasonable response to finding a device. In fact, it is irrational to the point of being absurd.
While it is not always clear whether individuals’ decisions are based in fear, our current collective psychosis affords an interesting perspective on how fear can cloud judgement. When society at large is the subject, we can step back and acknowledge that grounding a plane, scrambling military jets, and dumping thousands of gallons of jet fuel over rural Germany is completely insane. It’s a disgusting waste of resources, time, and—worse yet—promulgates the fear.
These events are illustrative of the unthinking, reactionary state that fear causes. Fear can be a natural response to the very real existential threats we face, and can even help motivate change. It will not, however, help you think clearly, let alone access your intuition.
In my last post, I mention that there are inappropriate ways to respond to the situation in the world, if you are insufficiently informed. Today, I would add that there are plenty of counterproductive ways to respond based on fear to the situation playing out in the world. Fear promotes reacting, rather than imagining instead the world you want to create for yourself and your children, and working actively to manifest that reality.
When you find a cellphone today, don’t divert from your path. Instead, continue towards your dreams.

I am delighted to share this video, which is a wonderful conversation I had with Sonia at Informed Planet Radio about dreams, the nature of reality, and social dream language. We discuss reality as a mass shared dream and the psycho-spiritual disease wetiko, and explore how the elite use the controlled western media to literally weaponize the human psyche, hijacking our ability to manifest reality and using it for their purposes.
Some visuals decorate the audio, from eyecandy to supporting graphs and references, so HD is recommended — enjoy!
Watching “ebola” explode in dream language is hugely, actionably informative for a number of reasons. This data alone clearly demonstrates we can learn a lot about what is on our collective mind from social dream data.
I have sampled all sorts of takes on ebola beyond the disgusting fear campaign by the corporate mainstream media: Alex Jones’ “it’s worse than they say“, Clyde Lewis’ “this is really weird” esoteric analysis, and finally came Zen Gardner’s “how to remain above it all.” But all seem somewhat superficial in that they are completely missing the point here. What we are seeing transpire before our eyes is much more than an actual virus.
It is a massive psychic attack on humanity, on the order of 9/11: because of the incessant media coverage throughout the west, billions of people have been exposed to the idea of ebola, if not the virus itself. Many have been infected with fear.
We see this reflected in the massive number of ebola-related dreams. It is unlike a traumatic terror attack, though; it is an ongoing existential threat. Think about all that changed after 9/11 — the war on terror, the new attitude towards Muslims, the police state — and ask yourself what will change as a result of this new threat?
I fear we have only seen the beginning of “the war on ebola,” and as always with these things, I suspect that war will have far more disastrous consequences than the problem itself.
According to dreams on twitter, more folks are dreaming about ebola than even a core archetype like “mom.” This fear campaign has been a total success. Without at all speaking to the topic of ebola itself, the global media hype has registered fear deep within the collective consciousness of the human psyche on a massive level.
More on the technical methodology in a future post, but suffice to say this is an extremely rough sampling.
