This is what I’ve come to believe about love and fear and the other feelings and motivations that we grapple with over the course of a lifetime:
- All of our roller-coaster feelings and urges stem from love and fear, which can be thought of as the two primary emotions (though love is more than just “an emotion;” it’s really the essence of life).
- Love is all-powerful as it streams to Earth in the life-force emitted by the source. Fear is weak but persistent as it seeps into our lives from Earth’s shadow worlds.
- Love and all of its positive feelings are eternal and are readily available to everyone, as they all trace back to the source.
- Most of the fear and negative feelings on Planet Earth (in fact, the very presence of the shadow realm itself) can be traced back largely to the fear of death.
- Once we embrace the simple, elegant truth about death and afterlife and our personal connection to the source, our fears start to dissipate and love can become the prevailing force in our life.
- To relinquish fear and to embrace love, there’s one particular process that’s simple and effective (though not necessarily easy, at least not at first).
So let’s see what it means to be fearless while alive on Earth… and if it’s something we might want to pursue.
Love and Fear
Many bright minds report that:
- love and fear are the primary emotions on Earth… (read more here… and here… ),
- love is the one noble, all-powerful emotional force throughout the omniverse that is directly associated with the source… (read more here… ), and
- fear is a savage counterpart of love here on Earth that usually traces back to our fear of death (read more here… and here… ).
In the summer of 1992, The Seven ethereal beings told our INIT group:
“Fear of death is one of the most distressing concepts of human culture. It is based on the conscious belief that your bodily existence offers life and security, which it never wants to lose. Fear of death therefore, is evidence of the mind having lost its roots. It shows a spiritual being who has far removed itself from its higher self. You owe this mentality largely to an intellectual and scientific way of thinking. It wants all thoughts reduced to a comprehensible level of material existence. The church also has many difficulties. These days, the churchgoer knows very little about heaven, hell and life after death. Indeed, a large number of them deny these things. Such skepticism, which is most prevalent among those who are wise and worldly, could easily influence and corrupt people of simple faith and pure heart. Heaven is in man and those who have heaven within themselves go to heaven. Heaven is in all those who recognize what is of God and let themselves be guided by the divine. The priority and basic concern of every religion is the acknowledgement of God!”
With this information, anyone can become fearless, regardless of their religious or spiritual understanding (or lack thereof).
It only involves acknowledging the source and its life-force (even if accompanied, initially, with a roll of the eyes).
Here’s one of many techniques that can help our fears to slowly dissipate. As with most techniques, the more you do it, the more effective it becomes.
- Move your awareness to the heart and anchor yourself to the source.
- Use a silent mantra that strengthens the connection, expresses gratitude, and turns your life over to the higher power… and synchronize it to your breathing. As illustrated below:
I encounter 4 fears which stem from the grand illusion of separation from the Source:
1) fear of scarcity, or lack
2) fear of not being good enough
3) fear of rejection
4) fear of loss of control
If we keep practicing these 4 fears, and that big illusion that they come from, then we will wind up with the fear of death.
Thanks John, I’m going to have to let that perspective brew in my mind for a few days or weeks. The idea of love (from the source) and fear (of death) being the “two main emotions”, and all other emotions being subsidiary, has become firmly shaped in my brain while researching this article… but your version might be just as close to reality.
For each of those 4 dark, illusory fears (from the shadows), I can see a complementary, light, substantial force (from the source):
1) abundance (or endless supply of life-force)
2) having a soul purpose for a lifetime that might or might not have anything to do with social norms,
3) being an inherent part of the grand plan as a soul birthright,
4) having an enduring role or purpose in the omniversal hierarchy that’s far more substantial than our roles in earthly hierarchies (family, business, church, society….) where control becomes an issue.
Whenever an idea or belief (like my love-fear scenario) gets entrenched in the brain, it takes some time to unboggle the mind when new information comes in, so I’ll let your ideas percolate a while..
Thanks for the opportunity for further reflection. 🙂
I think those 4 fears stem off from the Illusion of Separation…the IS illusion.
Then the 4 fears pile up, one after the other, Love gets crowded out, and the fear of death emerges because we never developed our connection to Spirit.
Your 4 fears have been simmering in the back of my mind for a week, and I’ve been thinking of them fairly often. I’ve been thinking about human lives, and while most of us have small, nagging fears about being a victim of disease, accident, crime, or natural disaster, the 4 you isolated seem to indeed by the result of “the illusion of separation from the source.” Very basic fears.
Still, it keeps pressing on my mind that the fear of death is the most basic of all. It’s the ultimate result of separation from the source. Without an acceptance of our timeless (spiritual) lives as a part of the source… as long as we put all our eggs in the short-lived carnal basket… death feels to us like the end of everything. And those 4 basic fears (of scarcity, not being good enough, rejection, and loss of control) seem (to me) to sprout directly from the fear of death. Maybe “secondary” fears.
It could just be a philosophical debate about which came first, the chicken (4 fears) or the egg (fear of death), and there’s no definitive answer. I tend to lean toward the fear of death, though, as being the primary fear..
In any case, we agree on the most important point: The illusion of separation from the source is the cause of most of our woes.
God bless, my friend,
Thanks Mark…a nice contemplation and writing on the fears.
I think the chicken and the egg may arrive together as we assimilate on this plane of existence.
A lot of institutions have flourished and profited from the fear of death issue.
Aside from being born here, leaving here is the most important thing we do.
A “good death” is usually synonymous with a good life, well lived, inside of one’s spiritual calling and journey.
The basic “Fear of death” has been all i can think about of late. I’ve slept very little because of it.
I’m turning 60 in November and it scares me that I won’t even make it.
We have too much institutional and social conditioning to fear death.
Try to see your way through this unfortunate development, which has been around forever. Just because this belief has been ensconced in our global culture does not make it right.
I absolutely love what The Seven Ethereals have told INIT….can’t get much clearer than that!
