My thought wanderings this morning are motivated by the current climate of fear that seems to permeate the daily realms of our magnificent world.
I have come to realize that fear and trust are inimical. They cannot co-exist. You cannot tie one to the other for trust is real, and fear is an illusion. No matter how we let fear manifest in the mind, it is still fiction, a false emotion precipitated by fear mongers and sustained by the ego. Trust, however, is a freeing gift from the benevolent and infinite Source that allows us to accept that things are as they are and as we create them on our path to enlightenment.
Throughout history humankind has been using fear as the great motivator, the great blindness not to see the serendipitous joy in living. Individuals, groups, societies and countries have used fear as the reason to react. I have come to believe that once we acknowledge the genesis of fear, and trace it honestly to its creator, the ego, it can no longer instigate or be the catalyst for adverse action. When fear does not exist, sacred and unconditional trust emerges.
In my 74 years of shared emotions and blended tears in just the living of life, I have come to realize the importance of the truth of living in the moment, the “Now.”
I have always felt truth’s power, but its slamming reality is always brought home through a crisis, through experience, through meditation, through prayer and especially through joy. I believe we are eternal, and each life is not only a physical construct but a spiritual reality as we merge into the mystical Oneness of the inner universe.
So much for wanderings this Thursday morning. Have a perfect day.
