When we are afraid, we are being blessed with an opportunity to learn, to grow, to see and hear world more clearly. Fear shows us ways we hold ourselves back. It also provides us with an energy which we can transmute into power within ourselves.
Don't be afraid of fear. Do not reject it or push it away. Instead, reach out to it. Love it. When you show compassion and tenderness toward your fear, you transform it into a strength, a courage that eventually becomes seat of peace in your soul. This is what gives spiritual masters their peace. Nothing can sway them from their center because they have transformed their fear.
Fear is seed of courage. Even Jesus Christ experienced fear. It's what we do in response to our fear that makes difference. That's where love comes in.
Love is fear's perfect polarity. And love is ever-present throughout all eternity. Compassion for your delicate, fearful self always leads to freedom from fear. Love transforms fear. There is a magic that is sparked when we give love and tenderness to our fear.
When you focus on love, its ability to touch you grows. When you send out love, it always comes back to you larger than it was when you sent it. And when you love in fear's presence, fear vanishes. Just like when you shine a light into a dark room. It pervades that darkness, fills it up and turns it to light. So let your fear come to surface. Whatever fear you may have, whether it be large or small. Don't fight it; just sit with it and get to know it. Ask it what it is trying to tell you and listen to what it may be asking you for. Let yourself be moved by your fear's needs. Let your heart break for your fear.
Ask God for a deeper understanding of your fear and for a deeper understanding of truth of love. Let compassion and tenderness flow through you, replacing any previous judgments you may have had about your fear. Assure your fear that you hear it, that you will take care of it and its needs will be met. See yourself wrapping your arms around your fear in a loving embrace. Feel your fear dissolving into your inner light. Once you are in contact with your fear, and have found understanding of why it has come to you, you can take right action. This is way to own your fear and take personal responsibility for finding your own inner peace, no matter what your circumstances. This is not an easy path, but it is easier than loss of Self that you would experience otherwise.
Remember that life is a gift. Life will bring its ups and downs, but peace is something you can experience even in midst of chaos.
