“To be the being that experiences and to bring that experience to consciousness without the slightest fear of anything that we may feel or think, is what will allow us to go wherever we go and do whatever we do without fear.” COL bk.2, 19:II
These words constitute a practical way to live without fear. We know that we cannot live in fear and experience Christ-consciousness, and we all need to move to this greater experience of Love—something that beckons to us constantly. To “be” the being that we are, experiencing in depth, and not suppressing this experience—yes, this is what we must do. Not suppressing our experiences will therefore bring our experiences to full consciousness. We don’t need to live an unconscious life, something that leads us to hurt others without really meaning to do so.
The lack of fear, a turn to love instead, will build upon itself. I know that feeling love, and Love (God), mitigates against a negative attitude. Low moods simply dissipate when we express love to our nearest and dearest. A settled good will toward all of humanity then comes about, for we have discovered how to turn to that which matters.
Focus on “being” today instead of constantly riding the treadmill of “doing.” Being is the way of the future, the way of great relationships with others. Our doing has all too often had an egoic tilt.
Become aware of our living today. Awareness—a determination to feel what we feel and think what we think—will keep our feelings and thoughts from going underground. We will live a fully conscious life, and this will enliven us and give us a better future to look forward to.
