I’m not a bible expert, but when I was in ministerial school I got to study the old and new testaments and there’s a lot in there that inspires me.
One thing I love is the story of Jesus telling the disciples that they have to be willing to lose their little life to live a greater life in God.
“For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul?”
One of the main reasons people live a life of fear is because they are clinging to a little life as though it is some kind of life raft when really it is the clinging to it that is drowning them.
Our Freedom comes in letting go –
losing the little life –
to be able to step into our greatness.
If you’re living with fear, managing with fear, coping with fear, it’s a sure sign that your greatness is waiting for you. Clinging to a little life is choosing a fearful life and this need not be.
Littleness has nothing to do with wealth, stature, or the things of this world – that was the point that Jesus was making. Littleness has to do with resisting the call of Love and clinging to the meaning that we’ve made of things, the interpretations of events, the hurts, and upsets.
We think we’re afraid because of the events of this world, but that’s not it. We’re afraid because we make false idols of our opinions and the things of this world while the call to a greater Love and heaven on earth goes unanswered. That’s what is really scary. I know. I avoided answering the call for a long time. I had no idea that Freedom was so close at hand.
Healing these false beliefs is a major part of what my Masterful Living Course is all about. There’s such a joy that breaks out when people are practicing releasing the shame and the fear together and encouraging each other.
