“For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
What Isn’t Real Can’t Be Overcome
We read and hear so much about overcoming fear. But fear is not something that can be overcome. (Actually, no illusion can be overcome.) To challenge, resist, or battle fear only seems to enhance the very illusion we are trying to overcome. That which we battle always seems to be more real and formidable until we cease to battle with it.
There is but one way in which we can be forever and completely free from the nightmare called fear. Knowledge is the way. When we know there is nothing to fear, and above all, know why there is nothing to fear, we have completely transcended the last vestige of this phantasmic illusion.
God Being Conscious Is Your Only Consciousness
In order to be completely free from fear, we must know that God is All, All is God. But we must also know just what God is, thus, what all existence is. This is the way, and there is no other way. You see, when we truly know what God is, and All that God is, we know what Man is and All that Man or anything in existence really is.
“God has not given us the spirit of fear.” Spirit is Consciousness; Consciousness is awareness of Being. God is the only Consciousness that can be conscious – or aware of being – as any one of us. God is certainly not conscious of fear. The Consciousness that is God, being our only awareness of Being, is completely unaware of fear. Therefore, we are completely, totally unafraid.
The Presence and Power of Love Is the Backbone of Existence
God is omnipresent Omnipotence, the All-Power, the only Power. Omnipotent awareness of Being is not aware of anything other than Itself. Thus, this omnipotent Consciousness, God, is completely unaware of a suppositional presence or power. We are conscious. As what Consciousness are we conscious? God being conscious as the I AM that we are is our only consciousness of Being. Hence, we cannot possibly be aware of anything other than our God-Self. And we cannot be afraid of our God-Self.
There can be no Power without Love. The Omnipotence that is God is Love. Without Love, there is no Presence, no consciousness of existence, thus, no awareness of being. Awareness of being Love is not an awareness of being in danger or of being threatened by suppositional evil.
Fear is unknown to the omnipotent, omnipresent Consciousness that is God. Love is complete, infinite, boundless, indivisible Oneness, harmony, peace, and Perfection. Perfect Love knows nothing of fear. There is no fear in, or as, Love, and we are this Love.
