When a resolute young fellow steps up to the great bully, the world, and takes him boldly by the beard, he is often surprised to find it comes off in his hand, and that it was only tied on to scare away the timid adventurers. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
The world, this life, can be a scary place. The fear is often unfounded. It’s fear of the unknown and we’re helpless because of our need for adventure and excitement. We have no choice but to carry on… else we stagnate due to procrastination. And that’s a scary place as well. Eventually we discover that most things that we feared either never came to pass or if they did happen we’re able to laugh at our anticipation and expectation of it!
ultimate safety –> fearless living
Remember the Holodeck in Star Trek? It’s a fancy and futuristic virtual world where experiences are real until we come back to present reality. What we gain from that ‘virtual reality’, like meaning and wisdom, is very real. Life is in some sense, just like that. We’re safe. We’re safe because we hail from the eternal. Our Father is the God of it all. We can live fearless lives if we just choose to. How will we choose to live today?
Daily Affirmation: Today I AM safe therefore fearless!
