Students are asked to find the ability to laugh at themselves, to persevere through challenging times and find the courage to stand strong and face situations head on. There are not people out there who do this easier than others, they all experience fear. The only difference is that they choose not to be controlled by their fear. They choose life and happiness. They know that no matter what difficult decision they face, they will get over it and can laugh and grow from the experience. They discover the greater good within themselves and others and understand that this perceived dark moment will pass and something better is coming around the corner.
The biggest difference between living this way versus living in fear is understanding that regardless of the experiences you have had in the past, regardless of how you were raised, what your parents did, and what happened to you, you are not a sum of your past. You are a product of the Now and what you choose to be today. Previous experiences may have affected you, slowed you down and created blocks, but they are put aside in order to live the life that you have always wanted to live.
In the teachings, students ask, how will I overcome my fears? You make it sound so easy, but it is not that easy to do. My fears keep me safe, they are real and these things really do happen, I can show you! To answer them, I reply, Yes, they can happen, anything can happen, but this does not matter. What does matter is how you face these experiences. There is no simple step by step guide of how to face your fear; it is as complex and unique as is each individual. I can not describe exactly how it occurs for each person, but I can describe when it occurs, which is when a person has had enough… when they are so exhausted from trying to keep it together, and things still fall apart.
They reach a point, where the soul cries out and says No More; I cannot continue to live like this. I am unhappy and I don’t understand why and nothing seems to work anymore. When the soul reaches this point, the person dangles on a life-altering precipice of decision. At this crucial point, they can choose to go further into the darkness, leading to additional self-made delusions of control through dominance, avoidance and anger. Or the person chooses to open further, at which point an awakening occurs. When this happens, the mind has the realization that it has created the world in which it lives in, by the thoughts, words, deeds and actions made on a daily basis. The knowledge is clear that these thoughts created the life it is now leading and the overwhelming desire is to change those thoughts and begin a new life right away.
Once a student is fully aware of this teaching, at the deeper layers of the onion, they can create new thoughts and make immediate changes in their life. This occurs by first understanding that the only constant in life is change and therefore, it is not to be feared, but rather embraced. As the student begins to live with this knowledge; love, tolerance and acceptance quickly follow. In this energy, all is unfolding as it should according to the divine order of the universe. The student is open to whatever comes their way, understanding that each experience is presenting something new to learn about themselves, others and the universe.
The side effects to living in this frame of mind are remarkable. There is a new found zest for life and an understanding that you are in control of your thoughts and emotions. The freedom of not being controlled by others including society, family and even strangers stimulates the impulse to create and to give something back to the world. Because your thoughts are now filling you with so much love, light and joy, you have a natural desire to share this with others and be of service to humanity in some regard. You discover, as you give freely to others, it refills your cup over and over in a magical act of natural abundance.
Most people do not believe this, even when it is taught to them, even when they see others who do this, they still do not believe that it could happen for them. Fear is that strong. Fear tells them that other people are lucky or just pretending to be happy or they are foolish. They believe that these poor souls are not aware of the great dangers lurking around every corner for them and it’s only a matter of time before it gets them. The urge is very powerful to live in the safety net where one feels they are right. It is a lonely world, but the urge to be safe and to avoid experience is very powerful when a person lives in fear.
At the end of the day, the individual alone has to make this decision. They must come to the understanding that it is more difficult to stay where they are, than to spread their wings and fly to unchartered lands.
When the student has reached mastery of this lesson,
they have the wisdom of these two principles:
1. Only the Good Is Real
2. It’s All Good!
Think hard on this, there is much more than what meets the eye at first glance.
If one can master these two concepts,
there is great wisdom and power to be obtained.
