My love letter to the stranger on the street who asked me for money
The word “God” has become empty of meaning through thousands of years of misuse. (Eckhart Tolle, Power of Now)

If you want something, but fear it at all, you will not have it because you do not truly want it.

Have you ever hoped or prayed for something you so badly wanted, but at the same time you felt a little afraid about getting it? According to A Course in Miracles, fear is the reason that our hopes go unfulfilled and our prayers go unanswered.

How can we claim to so badly want something, yet at the same time fear it? If there is any fear associated with a wish, it cannot be wholly desired. To want something means to want it fully. That which is partially undesired is, in truth, not desired. A “yes” contains no “no”.

If there is any fear associated with an opportunity or accomplishment, then your “yes” contains a “no” and you aren’t ready for it. If there is any fear associated with a relationship, then your supposed certainty contains uncertainty and it is not something you want. If you claim to want your life to change, yet your commitment to change contains any resistance to change, then in truth you don’t want your life to change.

Is there anything you want so fully that there is no fear? If so, then my guess is that you already have it. Those are probably the dreams that have already been fulfilled and the prayers that have already been answered.

To manifest is to want fully and without any fear. If you want anything of real value this purely, then it is already yours. This is what is meant by abundance. Fear is lack. Furthermore, in the presence of love, fear does not even exist.
