“Each time you think a loving thought, you have literally blessed all infinite realms of creation. Each time you have become unwittingly identified with a fearful thought, you have separated yourself from the perfect Love of God, and you have denied yourself your function.” (“The Way of Transformation,” WOM, Chapter 18, Page 218)
There is a bigger reason to avoid anxiety as much as possible. Fear separates us from God. We are often failing to trust Him, and this is why we have the fear in the first place.
God will take care of us. But we won’t recognize His blessing at all if we doubt that He will care for us, regardless of what is happening in our world, in our lives. We are living in a protected environment as long as our thoughts and our heart are with Him. If we hesitate, negating God’s good action toward us is easy to do. Then the secular law of attraction moves into manifestation, and we suffer in needlessly bad ways.
If we keep our eyes on God, we will experience His Love. If we are having trouble sensing His Love, what we must do is to get quiet, be still, settle down, and stop so much frantic “doing.” Just focus on “being,” which is what He wants most of the time, anyway. In the quietness we will touch our souls.
And it is our souls that remain in the bosom of God.
