Extinguish fear with love…

Fear is a darkroom where negatives developUsman B. Asif

Our biggest inhibitor is fear. When fear is present love cannot exist. When love doesn’t exist our connection to ‘that which underlies all’ cannot exist. That creates a vicious cycle. The more we fear or focus on fear, the more fearful we become. Instead focus on creating the virtuous cycle of love, here’s how it begins.

It begins with our attitude toward ourselves and the world. We must accept ourselves; in other words love our selves. That allows us to have a positive outlook toward other people, the world and even God. In turn positive energy and circumstances begin to flow into our life experience. That builds and sustains the ‘lovely’ cycle.

Love instead, when fear tries to take a hold of you!

Who do you trust?

The presence of fear is a sure sign that you are trusting in your own strength.A Course in Miracles (ACIM)

We all feel fear. Where does it come from?

It arises from a reliance on ourselves.

We think we can handle it all. At the same time, deep down, we feel inadequate. We feel that we’re not ultimately safe. The imbalance between what we think and what we are, creates the fear. Which leads to depression.

How do we change this?

By connecting to your deep self (which is light, love & joy), often. And by knowing that a greater intelligence, call it God, upholds us all, provides us strength and is there for us, at all times! Once we begin to rely on that great upholder more than on ourselves, our fear will dissipate.

Time to soar!

One can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to soar.Helen Keller

How often do we detect a desire to go do something big or worthwhile, and how quickly do we shoot it down to return to our ‘comfort zone’? Or how quickly do we let others shoot down such ideas?

Catch yourself when you do that. Notice what comes up when you consciously or not, push your real self’s desires down. What kind of fear is it that stops us from even dreaming our dreams, let alone living them?

As we become more aware of such debilitating thought-habits, we can slowly escape from its clutches. We slowly become whole.

We are made to succeed, we’re made to be joyous and happy, don’t trample your birthright by succumbing to a lesser self!

Recommendation: Do It! Let’s Get Off Our Buts

Do it anyway!

Always listen to experts. They’ll tell you what can’t be done and why. Then do it. 

Robert Heinlein

When you are calm, collected and purpose driven, ideas will spring from the deep wisdom that resides inside you. Soon enough you’ll feel drawn to act. Sometimes these ideas will be derided or criticized by others. Stay your course.

Listen to all but do what keeps you true to yourself. These ideas that emerge from within reveal parts of your life purpose. You will be most fulfilled when you live this purpose.

Recommendation: Release Your Brilliance

We are all meant to shine, as children do

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously
give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.

Marianne Williamson

Let’s liberate ourselves, get rid of all fear, get emboldened, let the light shine through, flower into the beauty and genius that we are, jump off and fly!!!!!!!!!!!
