“Can you begin to realize that it is entirely possible to walk in this world without the slightest hint of fear? This is possible—and necessary. This can be achieved today, when you sincerely acknowledge that everything you feel in your heart and everything you think in your mind can and should be embraced by your loving consciousness.” COL bk.2, 19:II
What a promise this is! No hint of fear can be achieved today! If we could only believe this strongly enough, I believe it would come to pass.
Again, love is the Answer. Our heart and mind must be overshadowed by a loving consciousness. And then we will see the evidence of what we read in today’s quotation. We embrace all in our heart and mind, leaving nothing out. But we don’t dwell on the past or the future, because we know that living in the present is the route to happiness. And happiness we can have when we live in love and banish fear.
This quotation also tells us that to walk in this world without the slightest hint of fear is “necessary.” We know that we cannot entertain Christ-consciousness as long as fear has a hold on us. Fear and Christ-consciousness cancel each other out.
Focus on the love that we already think about and feel. And then ask to have this love enlarged so that it covers our whole vision. Ask for the warmth of God to enfold us. This is a palpable experience, possible for all (though experienced, perhaps, in different ways for different people). If we trust enough, trust God enough, then we will know that we are safe in a sometime difficult world. We will thank God for the gift of life itself, and our desires for more, more, more will fall away.
The only “more” we will want will be love.
