“Concerns are a thought program. I ask you now to observe that mechanism, recognized it for what it is, and accept the fact that it comes from fear. It is fear of uncertainty, of not knowing what the future will bring. This fear of uncertainty generates a state of anguish that must first be accepted, and then released.” Choose Only Love bk.3, 3:I
Jesus would have us take a look at our fears, and then, after looking at them, release them. He would not have us just try to dismiss thoughts of uncertainty. This dismissing never works very well, and the subconscious is less likely to be healed if we eject bad thoughts without considering them. Of course, we don’t want to make them “real” to us (something A Course in Miracles warns against), and so it seems to be me that the moments of considering need to remain brief, not an obsession.
Acceptance is written all over what Jesus counsels in his channeled works. If we cower, we will not accept, and then we will remain in anguish. Just know that there is an Answer, that Jesus is right here with us, when we ask, helping us to move beyond fear.
If we have lived well in the past, our future will be certain to go smoothly. Some fear death as the greatest uncertainty, but death is like walking through an open door, nothing to fear at all. If we have not lived well in the past, we can nevertheless entertain a course correction. We always get a second chance with Jesus.
Pray for the release of concerns and worries, the release of our own hesitancy in the face of a future that will always remain uncertain. We cannot see the future, and I think this a great blessing.
But it also means that the future may be brighter than we anticipate, and when we focus on those bright things, they tend to happen.
