“Living without fear is only possible when you live in certainty.” COL bk.2, 19:II
To live in certainty is to know that we are One in God, sure of His love, knowing that all will be well. To live in certainty is to experience, first hand, invulnerability. Experiencing invulnerability first comes in glimpses of Awakening, and then in Awakening itself (on a constant basis).
We want to live without fear, and the way to woo this experience is to open ourselves more and more, as time passes, to love. Love always cancels out fear, and all of us do know some ways to invite love into our daily lives. We become more congenial as we go about our days; we cease the anger and hostility; we become peaceful.
Yet we aren’t always successful in making this transition from fear to love, because it takes God’s help to make a permanent change in our outlook. We don’t do very well when we try to effect permanent change without any divine help.
Let divine help into our lives today. Don’t try to alter thoughts and behavior by purely secular means, for these will all eventually fail. If we have the certainty of God’s help, we have a Power on our side that will create a permanent change from fear to love in our outlook.
Give God a try today. He is always willing to help anew and afresh, regardless of how long we have neglected Him.
