Travel Companions


Doubt and fear are unsolicited
travel companions.
One feeds the other.
Hate will join them.

  1. I have gone through a few of your posts and I find that your blog is interesting and well written. Just have to leave a comment to let you know. Have a wonderful new week!! Cheers!

  2. Hello Eddie,
    Your post stimulated three ideas…
    * Doubt may also have its positive aspects, don’t you think? As a signal in a dangerous situation… Or, when we do something, as an indicator that this is not yet “the best” (most authentic, most generous, most creative, most elegant,…) way we can do it…
    * Fear also may be a positive indicator in some situations. Like “I’m not as prepared to face this situation as I would like to be”, thus saving us from being dangerously irrealistic and overconfident.
    * Linking hate to doubt and fear… If hateful people could (or could be made to) doubt the soudness of their views, wouldn’t that be positive? Or, even though they would still not be able to doubt the validity of their position, wouldn’t it be a positive thing that they should fear the law that says that they must not act according to what they think?
    Thanks again for this stimulating post, and kind thoughts!

    • Hello and so good to hear from you,
      Thank you for your fine comparisons and examples of ideal situations.
      What I had in mind however, was extreme cases where minds are firm
      and there was very little potential for change.
      Your kind and thoughtful words are greatly appreciated.
      Have a most peaceful day

  3. Yes so true,would that they could embrace another good travelling companion. That of Trust and Love, They then might find ‘Joy’ travels with them Eddie..
