Fear is a little scary, have you noticed? Teddy Roosevelt was right when he said, “We have nothing to fear but fear itself.” Fear is scary. So today, I want to talk about fear, just as way of trying to talk myself out of it. We teach what we need to learn.
A few weeks ago, I tentatively tiptoed into a brand new world of spiritual activism. (here) I’m not sure which was scarier—doing it, or thinking about doing it. Either way, I gathered the courage to stick my toe in the water, and happily, it is still attached to the end of my foot. Somewhere between then and now, I morphed into full-blown advocate of stamping out fear, my own included.
It feels to me as if we are living in apocalyptic times, but in my version of the apocalypse, there is total destruction, a final ending from which there is no return, no redemption. My view may be flawed, of course, but like all others, I see my reality through the mirror of my own perception.
We are simultaneously living through a pandemic and an experience that seems apocalyptic. There are no guideposts to help us find our way safely through to the other side. If we are be victorious, we must build an army of strong warriors to forge the way and fight the fight, because we are facing the challenge of a lifetime in a fierce battle between good and evil.
Therein lies my mission, folks. I’m on a crusade to recruit fellow warriors who are united in a common purpose to stamp out fear. We need your help in winning the war between good and evil. That’s it, plain and simple. “Simple,” you may ask? “A pandemic, an apocalypse, the challenge of a lifetime?’ Really? Yes, really. Is just a matter of choice.
Regardless of one’s personal belief or nonbelief, faith, or spiritual tradition, we are a family of one and we are all in this together. In a world of one, every life matters. Every thought, feeling, and emotion is written in the family album and makes its mark upon future generations. The legacy that we leave to those who come after us will be determined by the decisions that we make today.
Think about it. Light workers talk a lot about the power love and light, but often fail to mention the power of fear, of how it undermines the best of intentions. Through ignorance and a lack of awareness of the power of fear, we will lose the battle.
It is up to each and every one to decide whether we will allow the impact of the news to swallow us in a sea of despair, or decide instead to seek the safety, security, and strength that lives deep within us. We must do what we must to prevent fear from overpowering our lives.
Spiritual warriors fight on the side of right, light, and love. When just one family member makes a conscious decision to join forces against fear, evil and darkness, the world changes for the better. I invite you—implore you—to become a force to win the war.
Where to begin? Stop watching the news. Go on social media and join groups focused on all things positive, uplifting, spiritual. Pray for guidance. Meditate. Listen with your heart rather than with your head. Find like-minded friends and support one another in staying positive. Stand strong against fear. Reach out. Uplift others. Find the light. BE the light.
We are warriors of light and we will win. Are you with us?
