Fear in an Insane World
September 24, 2006
A Course in Miracles speaks of the “detour into fear” which is also the “separation.” This world is truly a world of fear, but it is only False Expectation Appearing Real – it is a lie and the father of lies. There are many fears around every corner in the “real” world, but there is nothing that can truly protect you. It is not a safe place. No amount of money can provide enough protection against the diseases, wars, and natural causes of injuries and death. We are taught at an early age to be afraid of strangers, ghosts, and monsters in the closet. The ego would have you believe that fear is a way of life, that you have to be careful of who you meet, where you go, of protecting your identity, of protecting your children, yourself, and your loved ones from thousands of ways that they can be attacked. Your homes, cars, and lives have to be insured against accidents of every kin because of the “dangers” inherent in this fearful, insane world. The prudent person does have insurance, of course; it is required in some instances, but it should not be purchased out of fear. Trust in God, but lock your car – not out of fear, but in order to not provide temptation.
The holy person – that is, the person aware of their true identity as one with God – needs no protection; his protection lies in his defenselessness. His defenselessness, his innocence, provides a blanket of safety unparalleled in this world. All attack is initiated by the fear of attack. No one attacks the person who goes with God before, around, and within him. He does not appear on their radar screen because his energy vibrations neither reacts to nor attracts their energy of fear and guilt.
Fear no evil, for God is with you; waking and sleeping, at work and at play, the love of God enfolds you. So walk in the Light, safe and secure as you hold the hand of Christ as your teacher, your guide, and your elder brother.
