To be motivated by fear is a fool’s errand lured by the illusion of control. Whether it is projected inwardly or outwardly toward another person, group or life circumstance, it will always return to pain. Because every ego movement begins with pain and ends with pain.
Symptoms of this condition are labeling and judgement. Being right is the apparition presented by the ego to sway you in the direction that would lead to it’s control of your well being. If only humans could see the true size of the ego. Instead, they constantly look at it through a magnifying glass.
It does need to be seen, but only through conscious awareness.
