Ultimately, it comes down to this... Either you believe in the truth of the Spirit or you don't. If you believe, then you realize that nothing that is true can be destroyed. If you don't, then you live in the illusion of the ego and everything is in jeopardy. I choose the truth. I choose to realize that there is literally nothing to fear.
I remember as an 11-year old being afraid. I was afraid of heights. I was afraid of roller coasters. I had gotten over my fear of dogs, thanks to Minky and Smoky, those were my best friend's incredibly large dogs. But I still had fear. I didn't want to be afraid anymore, of anything. I hated the way that it felt to let something that had not happened and wasn't even real control me. I didn't want to be consumed by those feelings. So, I did what any person wanting to not be afraid would have to do, I stepped into the fear. I stepped in and punched fear in the face.
My buddy, the one with the big dogs, and I had gone on a trip to Six Flags with our families and I rode roller coasters over and over again with him. I kept riding until I was no longer afraid. Even at that age, I could feel the illusion of fear slipping away and the truth of knowing whose I am and who I am replacing it. To this day, if I begin to slip into the illusion of fear, I turn to the power of the Spirit and claim the truth that there is literally nothing to fear.
My challenge to you would be to think about something that you believe that you are afraid of and ask a new question. Ask what you would have to believe about it to not be afraid. Then, spend at least five minutes focused on the belief that you would have to have to give up the fear.
