Stand and Face Your Fear – Day Twenty One of #LoveLand101

There is no where to hide. It’s time to stand and say.

“Love don’t run, Love don’t hide, we won’t turn away or back down from a fight…
Love’s too tough, it won’t give up, not on us
Love don’t run.” — Steve Holy
 

Like Eleanor Roosevelt said “Do one thing everyday that you are afraid of.” 

In James Cameron’s first Terminator film, the terror and horror of The Terminator wanting Sarah Conner dead because she carries the seed that will save the world is a universal archetype for that which is in us that our ego is continually terminating.

It’s all there… run from your fear because you don’t understand what’s chasing you and why, and when you do get it you realize it is not going to stop. You need to take a stand against the demon, hoping for a victory, so you can live to save the world. Sarah Conner survives and she is different from having faced her assassin. In the sequel, The Terminator II in which the evil and bad Terminator from the first movie becomes the savior of the heroine and hero in the second. You begin to see the archetypal pattern as Arnold Schwarzenegger playing The Terminator appears before a terrified and tortured and mentally unstable Sarah Conner fleeing for her life… Reaching out his hand. “Come with me if you want to live.” You have a choice. Crucifier or Savior. It’s all a matter of your perception, shifting the illusion of time and space. In one movie, he’s the killer. In the other movie his is there to save her. Our terminator can be our savior or our crucifier depending on our perspective. Whatever you want to say about James Cameron he has his brand of rock star metaphorical archetypal story telling. We all relate because on some level we all get within us lies the ability to save the world by facing our fears. Our Terminators can be a guide to peace or they can be our guide to pain. It’s so wild that we choose which story arc it will be.

Since we are not living in a movie with a science fiction script containing and demonstrating the hero’s journey in 100 plus action packed pages… We are on our own to figure it out. No one teaches us how to face our fears. When you have no instruction and there is no operating manual it seems perfectly reasonable to hide from The Terminators of our lives and to keep up the cycle of forever running away from our self, becoming fused to our fear, allowing it to build an empire of untruths.

Hundreds of years ago there were fairy tales to help children process through their childhood terrors and remember the truth about themselves. Today with everyone’s personal hells being medicated, avoided, deadened and our collective unconscious wounds raging largely unprocessed we are at a turning point.

Don’t hide from your fear. Stand and see the truth. Face what you need to face and watch the resilience of your spirit rise to meet the needs of your soul’s expression.
