Unfortunately, [although we won’t admit it] many of us are severely uninspired. We would like to help and serve others, but we do not feel invited, capable, or energetic enough to do so.
Additionally, we are so concerned about “our self” that often our own focus is based solely on just surviving (personally, or taking care of just those we love). True inspiration is far bigger than our self.
Fear drives us to attempt to control life scenarios and outcomes. It is logical to reduce negative impacts and maximize positive impacts, for our own sake. However, our perception of the risks and benefit of our [in]action is often misleading. If we are too aggressive in mitigating the “risk”, then the outcomes are sub optimized and our fears are affirmed, oddly enough through our very own [in]action – the same energy used to mitigate the risk.
