Fearlessness is the primary characteristic of mastery. Mastery is not having great power to make things happen. It is only the recognition that what is true is true always and there is no other choice.
What I learned
I have moments when I am even afraid to let fear go. All of the illusion is built on a foundation of fear. People move into relationships because they are afraid to be alone. They choose their partner because they are afraid to be who they think they are and seek to become more by finding the one who can add to them. People work at jobs they hate because they are afraid of not having enough unless they do. People diet and exercise because they are afraid they will be looked down on if they don’t look a certain way. People take care of their body most often because they are afraid the body will turn on them and hurt them. The happiest moments in their lives is marred by the fear they will end or end badly.
This is what I want to master. I want to master fearlessness. I want to remember that I am one with God. Jeshua says that; “That is why when you truly pray from the depth of your soul, “God, bring me home,” you may rest assured, from that moment on it is fine to trust every little thing that unfolds. For though you see it not, what you call angels – friends that simply do not have bodies – are rushing about because you have given the command…”
God, I turn the whole thing over. I am ready to come home. I am ready to accept all the divine help that is available to me. I am ready to look at each moment as another step toward home. I wonder how many times I have refused help; how many times I looked at a circumstance in my life and thought it was cause for fear when it was simply an opportunity to heal. I am ready to be alert to those moments.
“Indeed, beloved friends, there is only one question you need answer:
What am I choosing in this moment?”
I can choose to look with the ego on the circumstances of my life and see fearful consequences, or I can look on the same circumstances with the Holy Spirit and see the next step home. It is up to me. Looking with fear is just a choice, an old habit. I can choose to do this differently.
