All these words which I have typed on this blog have been said or written many times before. If we look at or listen to our world they are all around us. They always have been, just as our spirit remains in constant connection to the Source. It is only our Awareness of this that fades away or brightens.
It is MY experience that FEAR is our stumbling block, a prison, a tormentor, and what many describe as a devil. My fear kept me from attempting to seek my dreams, because I wanted to avoid the crushing blow of their tumble. Fear has separated me from people I love because I worried that it would be too painful to let them inside my heart. My fear holds me… until it doesn’t anymore…
When we begin to recognize what fear is and stand up to it ALL THINGS are possible. The only limits set in life are the limits we set on ourselves. The only thing to fear is fear itself. Heard these things before? When you look at them, REALLY LOOK, you will see how strong you really are.
So how does one conquer fear? To believe it could be done overnight, I FEEL, would be a prideful thought. It is a journey, an ongoing mission – if you will – to self-improvement and development that then leads to community, city, country, and world. But all of that journey begins in the hearts of human BEings. If OUR hearts do not BECOME the change and all we do is desire – it will never reach us. Our prayer will never be answered because it is a prayer of lacking. Technically it IS being answered. Our intentions are there, but we’re just asking for the wrong thing – BEING the wrong Way.
If what we desire is Change and Peace on Earth and Good Will Toward all Men – a Richer, prosperous, equally abundant HOME – Then let’s BE that on a personal level and Thank God for bringing it to everyone else. GIVE the gift of this to others in prayer – so that they too might see the Holy Light. Thoughts are powerful – that is why prayer is powerful. God Gives what you ask, whatever is reflected in your HEART. This is key because sometimes a prayer is spoken and the heart says another. The Source gives from your heart. When we believe we are BETTER than someone or HIGHER and we try to give, we miss the point. We are ALL the same. We are all God’s Children.
Fear is ruling this world with an iron grip. It holds each one of us and unfortunately that sometimes bonds us together in fear. Fear nothing, but not in defiance, because that will only bring forth rotten fruit. This is EGO telling you FEAR is CONQUERED! It is EGO telling you I have no fear. However, it is also EGO that tells you fear is nothing to worry about, carry on and fear away. In both these bravados hides a fear in and of itself and one day fear ultimately will conquer the ego when it is not faced.
The way to challenge fear each time it shows its face is to KNOW WHO YOU ARE! If you know who you are there is no need to fear, because God is with you. Fear is powerless to this awesome Truth and Light. Fear is Darkness and it can not touch the Light. It desperately wants to and only inside YOU, the Vehicle, is there space to share. But darkness is not light. It can not harm light. It is simply an illusion – the fear – that it will. Darkness passes through Light and fades away into the depths below. All we must do is release it from ourselves to be free, yet we insist on carrying it.
I invite you to begin YOUR journey of releasing your fears. I feel so fortunate, and at times, unworthy to stand by these beliefs. I do not measure up to them, but I try. My journey continues to this day.
Honesty with Self is the only Way to See.
