“When you have fear inside you, the events of your life invariably stimulate it. Like a rock thrown into water, the world with its continuous changes creates ripples in whatever is held within you. There’s nothing wrong with that. Life creates situations that push you to your edges, all with the effect of removing what is blocked inside of you.
Fear is caused by blockages in the flow of your energy. When your energy is blocked it can’t come up and feed your heart. Therefore, your heart becomes weak. When your heart is weak it becomes susceptible to lower vibrations, and one of the lowest of all vibrations is fear.
Fear is the cause of every problem. It’s the root of all prejudices and the negative emotions of anger, jealousy, and possessiveness. If you had no fear, you could be perfectly happy living in this world. Nothing would bother you. You’d be willing to face everything and everyone because you wouldn’t have fear inside of you that would cause you disturbance.
The purpose of spiritual evolution is to remove the blockages that cause your fear. If you feel fear, let it go. That which is holding you down can become a powerful force that raises you up. You have to be willing to take the ascent.
Aways let go as soon as you’re aware that you didn’t. Don’t waste your time; use the energy to go up. You are a great being who has been given a tremendous opportunity to explore beyond yourself. The whole process is very exciting, and you will have good times and bad tines. All sorts of things will happen. That’s the fun of the journey.”
