- Safety of Loved Ones
In a nutshell, these are the things I have feared the most; Afraid of financial obliteration, afraid of trusting another person with my heart, afraid my loved ones will suffer harm…
I had to wrestle with these dragons this week…Extreme vulnerability and honesty with my Dearest “g” is what opened the door of revelation. Why am I afraid? What do I fear exactly? How do I find freedom?
This is what came to me… I fear because I have not yet been made perfect (become complete) in Love. I do believe “God”, as they say, is Love- perfect, guiding, and protecting Love. I also believe “God”, as they say, is the reason behind it All- the energy-backdrop of everything that is.
In short: we have the freedom to believe and create to the best of our ability at any given moment in time. We are creating our reality continuously, without ceasing. But, what we believe and, therefore create, may not express the highest possibility because our belief is incorrect about the given circumstances and the context of our thinking may not be the healthiest perspective. But Truth is Ultimate. The Wisdom of “God”, as they say, is Truth. This the knowledge we are in need of. This is Reality that will bring harmony to our lives.
If I am to live consistent with my belief; if I truly believe the Ultimate Reality is Love, within and all around me, then I must admit: My fears are based in a false reality; one that I’ve created. Such is the case for every delusion in this world. I must admit this because fear and Love are completely opposite. They oppose one another.
I have come to realize that I have full right and access to dwell in Love. But I have to be able to see clearly (perceive and understand clearly and simply) or else I can’t enter through the door into that Reality (Matthew 6:22-24). I must trust Love with everything and walk with, dwell in and be Love. In this there must be and is freedom from fear.
Even my experiences that seem to reinforce and validate the necessity of my fears are still interpreted by my own human frailty and limited perspective- like my inability to see how certain struggles create opportunity for spiritual growth and lead to that much better vision I hold of myself. Indeed, every struggle creates that opportunity!
This experience, what I see with my eyes, is the illusion. What Love Is and that I can participate in That is Reality.
“There is no fear in love. On the contrary, love that has achieved its goal gets rid of fear…the person who keeps fearing has not been brought to maturity in regard to love.” – 1 John 4:18
