This is my statement from four years ago. “The scripture says a lot about fear. We have received very specific and clear direction. We have been told to fear the Lord and also to put our trust in him.”
As I reflect on this today I think of F.E.A.R., False Evidence Appearing Real. Everywhere there is something to be afraid of so much so that people today are very disturbed if they feel a tone of frustration of anger. “Squelch it as soon as possible by whatever means” seems to be the by word. I must tell you that coming from a place where I needed to get angry to climb out of very challenging situations as a child, a youth, and throughout my adult years I would rather see someone express controlled anger than behind your back manipulation and calculated getting even.
In terms of working with the Christ that we are, we want to move forward in hope and faith. That faith in the knowledge that we are being cared for and guided by those under the direction of God and at our own request. This includes remembering that we are spiritual beings having a mortal experience. Today I believe that while we do retain our individual, personality and physical memories like a dream eternally, I do not believe that we are limited to one experience in the material world. I embrace reincarnation as a gift from God to allow us to grow and experience, at least until we are willing to awaken and remember what our ultimate purpose is which I believe is to assist in restoring The Son to remembrance of The Father (God).
I use to fear offending others or not being there for my children or grandchildren. Today I see the world so differently that I know that they each made an agreement with Jesus and Christ to fulfill something that Christ wanted to experience. I recently had to remember that animals, too, have made choices in the lives that they are living.
I am one who wants to defend and fix everything and knowing all creation has its personal contract with Christ and with God is huge in understanding and remembering to let others have their contract existence. In other words, let them have their pain! Oh my! Doesn’t that sound like you just do not care?!! Well, at first it might seem so, but give it a chance. What I believe you will find is that you gain healthier boundaries for yourself and you allow them to be more autonomous or self guided.
May God grant us a remembrance of who we are and our relationship to Him, Ourselves, Others, the world, and beyond. Till next time, IJN, Amen, Namaste~
