Skąd się w nas wziął strach, lęk i cierpienie? Dlaczego tak wiele osób cierpi dziś nie tyle fizycznie, co psychicznie i emocjonalnie?
These are the questions we'd like to examine, based on PRIMAL FEAR THEORY.
Let's get started!

Strach, lęk i cierpienie - definicja źródła

Aby zrozumieć nasze lęki, musimy przenieść się do początków istnienia człowieka. Właśnie tam się wszystko zaczęło – nasz lęk i cierpienie.
The time God created Adam and then Eve, they lacked nothing. They had everything, and what's more, they were free. God gave Adam a brave heart. The man had to conquer uncharted territories, extending the boundaries of Eden. He had to multiply, and take care of his lady. We can clearly notice that Adam had goals in his life, and specified work to do.
He had clear principles as well. There was only one law back then. 'Don't eat the fruit from one tree.'

We wszechświecie panowała nieznana nam dzisiaj harmonia. Wszystko było jasne i klarowne, czyste i obnażone. Bóg nie miał przed nimi nic do ukrycia. Adam nie miał nic do ukrycia przed Ewą. A ona przed nim i to dosłownie. Oboje byli nadzy.
We reached the point where we want to define the word "naked":
Physical nakedness.
Emotional nakedness — honesty with yourself. No masks, no pretending to be someone you're not.
Emotional nakedness in a relationship — being honest with your partner in every field.
I will use the word "nakedness" in different articles, so I want us all to understand the context well.
So, Adam had no fear, because there was nothing to be afraid of. Everything was simple. And all the way he had his always-willing-to-help Father.

He didn't have to worry about getting old or dying, or sick from coronavirus. He wasn't anxious about providing for his family. He wasn't afraid of betrayal.
Nie zastanawiał się, czy jest wystarczająco męski, a ona nie zastanawiała się, czy jest wystarczająco atrakcyjna. Nikt ich nie oceniał. Innymi słowy, nie walczyli z tymi wszystkimi rzeczami, z którymi my dzisiaj się zmagamy.
Adam didn't struggle with a difficult childhood, low self-esteem, feelings of abandonment, betrayal, depression, lies, old age, or losing someone close in death. He didn't have to obey all the mass of prohibitions, regulations, laws, and rules which regularly make our conscience feel guilty, and tormen us. He was free from all these things, which enslave us today.

Akt nieposłuszeństwa, doprowadzający do bólu, cierpienia i strachu

However, his deed turned everything upside down. When he broke the only law given by God, he'd faced completely new feelings, causing fear, dread, anxiety, and worries.
Note that Adam's first reaction was to cover his nakedness. Since then, man stopped being honest and real, and started to wear masks of deceit. Adam covered his sex organs, because he realized that he will pass all those awful emotions he'd just experienced on to subsequent generations. That's how it all works. We come out of our mothers' womb CRYING, and this cry becomes our companion throughout our entire life. The price of disobedience to God takes a toll, dragging along through all the generations.
Now Adam comprehends what evil is. Sadly, this knowledge wasn't of any benefit.

Pokonanie strachu, bólu i cierpienia - możliwe!

Okay, we know how it all began, and what's the source of our sorrow. Now we can start our journey to healing and understanding ourselves. Let's find the answers to the following questions: "Why do I feel this way?", or: "What's going on with me?"
So, join us in our adventure, and let's fight our fears together!

PS. Most of the articles are written from Adam's perspective, but they are of the same concern to Eve. To simplify our speaking if something is of concern only to men or women, I will make it clear.
