Fear is here. It’s everywhere.
The following is an excerpt from the unpublished book Jess (the sister of Jesus visiting today’s world):

– Most people are frightened, worried, about most things.
– I don’t see it, said Joseph. (Jess’ new lover) What frightens them?
– They’re worried – frightened – about what they look like, don’t look like and are going to look like. They worry about what they say, what they’ve said and what they should say. They worry about what they do, what they’ve done, what they need to do and what they won’t get done. They’re frightened of other people, their bosses, their colleagues, their friends and lovers – not to mention strangers and foreigners. They fear the future, disease and aging. They’re afraid of what they don’t know and afraid of what they are going to find out. They’re afraid of what they eat, how much they drink, their kids, their parents… What frightens them most comes in the form of contradictions to their well-established dogmas. They are not frightened all the time and they are not frightened about everything at the same time, but believe me, most people are frightened and worried most of the time. Life frightens them. They don’t know how to love it.



“Death is feared most by those who haven’t lived.”
Dartwill Aquila
