Manifestors, fear and peace

Manifestors are not here for power. When Manifestors get stuck with power they become dangerous to themselves and others, because there will be tyranny. Never knowing when enough is enough, they become obsessed with controlling everything and not being controlled by anyone. They’re here to confront and manage fear at all times at the most primary of levels, where they don’t stay away from doing something just because of fear. If they`re afraid of something, it might just be a sign that they have to do it, at least to know what the fear is all about. There’s always a first time for everything, and all the first times carry no guarantee, there’s only the combination of fear and/or excitement. Someone has always taken on the responsibilities of challenging our deepest fears of the unexplored and unknown, because if you live in fear, where is the Peace of the Manifestor going to come from?

Your spirit can’t be in peace if you are afraid of doing something in your mind, and the only way to get rid of the fear if you are a Manifestor, is to shake it off by confronting it and seeing if you actually need to do something about exactly the same thing that you might be afraid of and occupies your mind. Only then you can find a place of rest inside yourself. That’s the Yang spirit of the Manifestor. It is a configuration of personal power to initiate action combined with a little bit of elementary awareness.

When Manifestors did something that nobody else did before, they also know something that nobody else knows. They can use this knowledge to scare the others, which is basically what the Manifestor power has been about for most of our human history. Like in any ‘Game of Thrones’, you don’t need to kill everybody to make them all afraid to lose their lives, you just need to kill one in front of everybody, and they’ll know what can happen to them as well if they don’t back off. This is the blind drive behind Manifestor anger, to die killing. You’re afraid, you scream out of your head, so fear doesn’t stop you. You become its servant. If you die, you die. If you don’t, you always learn something.

Trying to neutralize fear with blind anger can also bring advantages. If you never confront fear at all, then you don’t know what’s possible. This is the advantage of Not-Self Manifestors compared to the Not-Self Generators, and that has always made them the one-eyed human initiating the civilization of the blind.
