We live in a culture that is so embroiled with fear, that we often don’t even realize when it has saturated and permeated our thoughts and our language. We may have the best intentions, and yet be unknowingly seeding our goals and dreams with the frequency of fear.
When I recently saw these words at the top of my Facebook news feed, “Lead the fight against…”, my heart sank. While the post was attempting to raise awareness around an important medical issue, it left me wondering — How can we raise awareness around important issues in a way that doesn’t invoke a battle, and uses more conscious and empowering language? After all, fighting against something, fighting against anything, keeps us entangled in the very problems we wish to solve.
Think about it for a moment…
Going up against anything, engages us with “the enemy”; it calls us to battle with a dark ominous force. If you are “battling against”, “waging a war on”, or “leading a fight against” something, what energy are you holding and calling in? Anger. Hatred. Fear.
