Daily Inspiration: November 25. Fear and Anxiety as Aides, not Adversaries
Sometimes we do have to check under the bed and in the closet, to see and realize, that the bogeyman is not real. Fear and anxiety are not bad, hurtful, nor the enemy, they are simply illusionary beliefs, false concepts, that we have been programmed by the ego to believe as real. The less “reality” you give to them, the less you focus on them, the less real they will feel and become. It is only we, who through our support, the time, focus and energy that we place on them, gives them a power they should not have. Fear and anxiety, although illusionary in nature, get stronger and become a bigger part of our lives, the more we choose to support their ‘realty’ as true. Being illusionary in nature, fear and anxiety are not bad for you, for being unreal they are simply nothing. It is only your belief that fear and anxiety are bad for you, that is bad for you. When you change your mind about the nature of fear and anxiety, you can then start changing your response and relationship to them. Today, let us not feed fear and anxiety, instead let us simply see them for what they are, false concepts that we have temporarily bought into as real. Let us realize how much control we actually have over them, and how they grow or lessen depending on how much we place our focus on them. Their purpose was for us to experience long enough, in order to understand, their illusionary nature. Now, that they have served their purpose, we can thank them and let them go. Now, having chosen to let go of fear and anxiety, we see before us what has always been there awaiting our awakening, the state of peace. Now, peace results, because instead of buying into the ego’s lies and delusions as true, we have place our faith in God and in the perfect and sacred nature of the journey that we have co-created with Him.
If we stop watering an indoor plant, that plant will begin to die. If we stop placing our time, focus and energy, on fear and anxiety, they will begin to dissolve from our experience. It is what we focus our time and energy on that will grow. Let us today start focusing on the thoughts and emotions that will help us develop the life we want. As God’s creations, love is our fuel source and eternal essence. It is this essence that we have come here to, in our own unique and sacred ways, and through our interactions with each other, share and thus expand. Love has numerous expressions such as those of compassion, kindness, charity, forgiveness, peace and joy. The more we share these expressions of love, the more loving our lives will become. The more loving our lives are, the less fear and anxiety we will experience. The more often we are able to set a loving example, the more often others will be able to see, that there indeed are better answers than fear and anxiety. Today, if fear and anxiety try to strike at you, simply recall their illusionary nature, and the power you have, to make them a bigger or smaller part of your day and life. Many, unconscious as they may be of it, are looking a way out of their illusionary mindset, out of the tunnel of darkness and despair that the ego has sold to them as being their home. Every time we can consciously choose forgiveness and peace instead of judgment and anger, we help lead our brothers and sisters out of the tunnel and back into alignment with their light. Today, anytime fear and anxiety come calling, let us understand such a moment, as an opportunity that is being offered to us by the Universe, to learn how to trust God more, and by doing so, obtain the peace of mind that as God’s creations, is our birthright.
Today, let us start to see fear and anxiety as aides, not as adversaries. Let us try to understand that all they are really doing, is showing us which illusionary thoughts and false concepts, we are still holding unto and supporting as real within our minds. As we acknowledge their gift to us, let us show our gratitude for the part they play, and service they provide, in our growth, healing and awakening process. It is by us reacting to them with gratitude, instead of condemnation, that will begin to shift our relationship to them. Let us offer them gratitude, because now we know, that it was because we got to experienced them long enough, that got to see and understand them for what they truly were, false concepts, lies that we no longer need to buy or believe as true. Now, when they pop into our minds, we no longer need to focus on them and thus make them a bigger part of our lives. Now, we simply recognize them, as signs that help trigger in us, the desire to trust God more. We have played the ego’s games long enough. The ego’s games of fear and anxiety have served their purpose. Now, we know that when we are experiencing them, it is because the ego is in control of our minds, and thus thinking and living for us. Now, we use this self-awareness, to take our thoughts, minds and lives back. Now, we understand the sacred and perfect nature of each one of the steps along our journey. Now, we see how even the so-called bad experiences, those times when fear and anxiety ruled over us, were really, in their own unique ways, just helping us take back control of our own minds from the ego. Understanding this, we now have the self-awareness to use and see them as our aides, not our adversaries.
Today, when fear and anxiety come knocking at your mind’s door, choose not to focus on them and thus making them a bigger part of your experience. Instead, use such opportunities, to trigger in you, the desire to practice trusting God more. As you do so, you will begin to notice, that the more you develop your trust in God, the less fear and anxiety you will experience. In any moment, with any situation, trust God fully and wholeheartedly, and fear and anxiety will dissolve before your light and understanding. Now, with a deeper sense of self-awareness, you can begin to see, that all fear and anxiety are really doing, is helping you practice trusting God more. Would you not be grateful to anyone or anything whose true purpose in your life, is to help you trust God more? Would learning to trust God more not bring a greater sense of peace, security and joy into your life? Is this not what fear and anxiety are actually, after all is said and done, really doing? Today, understand what fear and anxiety are really doing for you, be grateful, not judgmental of them, and now see and treat them as your aides, not your adversaries.
