Is admitting fears or a perceived vulnerability a personal failure; a systemic weakness of thought or is it a construct of the ego’s ability to sustain itself?
The desire to become something, empowers the ego and feeds the illusion of attachment. The action of BEING acknowledges the spirit and nourishes the truth that by letting go we always have.
We are both physical and spiritual beings. When we perceive, through our physical bodies via the intellect and instinct each moment of being is precious because we tie it to time. Our spirit, however, the true essence of what we are, sees each moment as eternity and perfect, for linear time does not exist.
If we accept that premise, the expression, "Live in the Moment" takes on a different meaning. We can live in the moment, all it takes is the desire to do so and when we make that choice the result is love, for fear cannot exist when love of self is present.
Understanding the dichotomy of letting go, to always have, is a constant struggle of life. Implicit is the understanding that we are not our bodies. Our bodies only house what we really are -- spirit!
The body is a beautiful mechanism brought into form that allows the spirit to exist in form and in the density of this environment. When the spirit is finished with what it came here to do, it discards the body and returns to the Source and the body returns to the earth. This is why the body and the earth are considered sacred. They are of the same substance with similar functions. Containers of spirit!
When we go deep within our being we remember this truth and much more. Awareness is an equal gift from God to all. It is the remembering that is selective by each of us, and the levels of enlightenment are the precipitations of our choices. There are only two emotions available to humankind. Love and fear. All other emotions are derivatives. We will remember more, love ourselves more, if we let go of fear.
