Spirit is love. Ego is fear. Fear is the opposite of love. Fear can only enter where love is not…and the only cure for fear is perfect love.
Fear is only possible when we forget what we are. We are consciousness, which has been temporarily given a mind and body only as instruments to navigate this world. When we become overwhelmed by fear, it is only because we forget what we are. To forget our identity is to become lost.
Through a daily spiritual practice, we can abolish fear simply by reminding ourselves what is true. To remember what is true requires little effort, but regular focus must be directed toward recognizing and then letting go of the world’s insane ideas.
Relative to who we are, the world of form is ultimately unreal because it is always changing. A lost mind thinks that only that which is observable, measurable, tangible is real—and then tries to create stability on the level of form (where it cannot exist). If we believe we are a mind, or a body, then fear overwhelms us just as soon as we recognize the reality of impermanence, and ultimately of death.
We are not our minds and bodies; rather, silent observers who perceive through minds and bodies—but who do so from the realm of the imperceptible. As consciousness itself, we are life itself and we breathe all truth and meaning into the mind, the body, and into the world of form.
To align with the energy of consciousness, of life itself, is to wholeheartedly embrace the perfect thought system and the joyful feeling of unconditional love each moment. If there is any fear in us, more healing is required.
