Yeah, it's fear that drives such hostility between each other. Within living in a big city and considered one of the most 'dangerous ones,' you almost develop a second skin as a defense mechanism in order to be 'alert' if anyone wants to rob you.
Actually, I've noticed how this experience is enhanced when being in an ATM - and sometimes hell, for the moment I do have to place a guard just because we cannot just pretend that 'everything is fine' - I mean, it's not to be scared but just taking the necessary precautions all the time to ensure no one is actually following you around or that there is someone in the ATM next to you that isn't precisely focusing on 'their thing.'
So, this fear that becomes a second-skin as a protective mechanism can be stopped by ourselves to not create an experience out of it, meaning existing in actual fear as an energetic experience that clouds the moment instead of just focusing on what we are there to do - which is just for example, withdrawing money.
It is definitely common for me to go observing all of these fears manifested as protection mechanisms not only between people, but as the entire set up of the system wherein 'abuse' is already implied in the measures taking in all forms of public spaces/ transportation. Here I do ensure that no one's following me around,specially because of always being moving around alone and in this, one must be constantly aware of the physical reality and people around us.
This will certainly stop in an Equal Money System wherein there will be no need to steal another for something that they will have equal access too. For now, we support ourselves to not give continuation to such fears, but simply take the necessary precautions within/ while moving around int his reality that is NOT yet supporting everyone equally.
