My Journey to Lesbos

Dear Boldleaders and anyone who is reading, Just a few weeks back i took an important decision: to go to Lesbos and volunteer for the refugees that are on the island. We all know the very challenging times that Europe is facing with regards to the refugee crisis. Below is an account of my thoughts from the journey.   And a final reflection….it is time to go I hadn’t written anything the past 3 days with the aim of collecting some last and powerful thoughts as I leave Lesbos. The past days and this whole experience has certainly being something extraordinary. It will be a long post but I invite you to read! I want the world

The Case for Fear

Fear is a feeling induced by perceived danger or threat that occurs in certain types of organisms, which causes a change in metabolic and organ functions and ultimately a change in behavior such as fleeing, hiding, or freezing from perceived traumatic events. . . In humans and animals, fear is modulated by the process of cognition and learning. . . The fear response serves survival by generating appropriate behavioral responses, so it has been preserved throughout evolution.(Wikipedia)   Our contemporary world view seems to often use the word fear to describe a state of being  as well as juxtapose the notion of love  as its opposite. I find this disconcerting  as if the notion of fear is to be avoided at all cost
