Fear is an invitation to Fearlessness!
Our world is evolving. The recent global economic challenges have inspired anxiety and fear. Our standard of living and way of life feels threatened. What was once appeared dependable and immune to loss has fallen. We feel overwhelmed and helpless, our very survival feels compromised. The illusory nature of the temporal world has revealed itself. What appears as real one moment disappears the next, thus is the nature of Maya.
The Ego is intolerant of anything that creates a sense of vulnerability. It readily enlists fear, intimidation, ultimatums, anxiety and depression as the means to control our thoughts and behavior. It seeks to dominant our experience, as well as destroy our sovereignty. We avoid fear at all cost so we allow the Ego to persecute us into submission. What happens when we stop fearing the fear? When fear is no longer resisted, when we actually allow it to be, something quite miraculous occurs…
Fear is a great ally in Awakening, it is the tool of liberation. For when we bow to our fear, when we surrender to the unknown that is life, we are no longer trying to escape. We don’t have to because we are not bound. When we realize this, the Ego loses its power to seize control of our Being. We become Fearless!
As institutions, governments, corporations, political figures and economies rise and fall, do not judge, analyze or anticipate the outcome. No assessment or commentary is valuable or necessary. Accept what Is. We do this by being receptive to life, by receiving all that we experience with equanimity. Abide in a state of non-resistance. In doing so, you will align yourself with the flow of the Divine.
The only constant in the universe is change.
What is of this world is subject to the cycles of nature. The tree comes forth from the seed, the seed bears fruit that ripens, it eventually falls to the ground and decays. Why? For it has fulfilled its purpose. Why mourn, why fear? As the fruit lies rotting, it enriches the soil from which the seed will root and grow. Do not attach yourself to the ebb and flow of cyclical phenomenon. Go within and be still. Contemplate, what is enduring and what is subject to change?
In the midst of the movement of the Creative be silent. Watch the dance of the Divine as it transforms energy into form. Observe how one begets the other.
When we observe this process, it is Inspiring because we see the providence of Divine intelligence expressing itself. This Consciousness is Purposeful! That is its inherent nature. It is bountiful, abundant, infinitely compassionate and unfailing in its ability to nourish life! What may look like the end is merely the beginning. From the perspective of the Absolute, the beginning and end is nonexistent for it is only the One.
Therefore, do not fear but rejoice! Shed your uncertainty and anxiety! Reside in the moment, in the Truth! You are not bound, you needn’t suffer. Suffering is an absence of Consciousness. When we are aware of our Immortal and Sacred nature suffering ceases and life becomes meaningful.
See the beauty and the blessing that these times bestow. See each and every experience as a gift from the Source of your own true Being! It is intended to Awaken you, to foster trust and faith in yourself and in the Grace that is Life.
Now sit quietly and observe your breath, until it becomes natural and rhythmic. Abide in the Silence. Let that Silence become the spaciousness of your experience. Whatever arises is absorbed in the spaciousness of your Being. No resistance, no effort, no will, no judgement. Be where you are. Repeat within, I Am Divine, I Am Divine, I Am Divine.
Om Shanti, Shanti, Shantihi,
