Be not afraid (and *don't* protect yourself!) - The Way of The Fool and David Icke

In this short video David Icke begins with responding to a question about whether he has bodyguards; whether he takes steps to protect himself.

The answer is no - and Icke explains why, and how this relates to his philosophy of life. I found this short discussion overall inspiring, and have watched it several times.

My feeling is that this relates to Icke spiritually living 'The Way of the Fool' -

The fear-less Fool is one who leads a 'charmed life' - and is able to speak the truth as he sees it.

Of course, The Fool also speaks a lot of 'nonsense' - but there are times (and this is one) when a peck of truth outweights a bushel of nonsense; because (as Icke says below): "They can't unhear what you have said".

"…I'm passionate, I'm determined…" Yes, when you have a highly developed sense of who you are and how the world works as Icke apparently does, you move as if in some sphere of protection or, as he puts it, you vibrate at a frequency too fast for those forces to connect to. But if you say "don't protect yourself" you need to qualify that. There are fools in the Old Testament sense and Fools in the New Testament sense. It is possible to walk unguarded through life, perceiving it as some sort of garden, and eventually to walk into some catastrophe or trap of the devil. “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” (Proverbs 1:7) Here I take fear to mean the understanding that we are subject to laws the following of which leads to life and the violation of which leads, ultimately, to death. So, fear not the world but be a fool for Christ. "Those who trust in themselves are fools, but those who walk in wisdom are kept safe." (Proverbs 28:26)

@Albrecht - Exactly. And 'safe' means ultimately, in the end, from the perspective of eternite.

Right - there is no other safety
