A Course in Miracles has many wonderful, helpful and clear teachings to help us eliminate fear, and the patterns of fear that we keep repeating. One such teaching is this:
“Fear is always a sign of strain, arising whenever what you want conflicts with what you do.” T-2.VI.5.
When we say we’d like the Peace of God, but we choose to ignore our feelings there’s an inner conflict and fear will arise.
When we ignore our feelings we’re ignoring the healing opportunity and deep down we begin to feel trapped because we’re not allowing ourselves to become aware of the unhealthy patterns so they can be brought to the light and healed. Instead, we choose to hide in the shadows of our fearful thoughts.
When we say we’d like to be more loving, but then someone seems to trigger our annoyance and we blame them for our upset rather than taking responsibility, fear will arise. We could have been loving, but we chose not to.
Yes, it takes courage to face our fears, false beliefs and insecurities.
It helps to remember that we always have a team of extraordinary beings available to us to help us at ALL times.
It’s time to commit to not going it alone anymore and to partner up, every day in every way. Then we can find the light at the end of this dark tunnel and run towards it. In fact, we’ll probably begin to feel like we’re being carried!
