Many times we know what we fear, and we want to conquer our fears by facing them. When
the moment to face the fear approaches, we shirk back overwhelmed with anxiety. How do you
face your fears then?
Simply ask yourself if what you fear can really hurt you. Begin to conquer your fear by
determining if it is rational or irrational belief. As we’ve said, step aside and view the situation
as “other,” a separate mind. Would an objective individual see it the same way?
Most of us have beliefs which appear repeatedly over the course of our lives and we don’t even
know where they came from. These core beliefs are usually rooted in unexpressed fears. By
identifying these fears in singular expressions rather than general experiences, you can begin to
defeat them one at a time. You are more likely to transform your life into opportunities by
changing fear into challenges, by expressing them as opportunities than dwelling on the
possibilities. By identifying the source, which conscious thoughts are producing them you can
reframe these views into positive actions.
When you identify fears you begin to transform and create a new spirit in life, one which is
looking to grow and expand. Your growth may be in the capacity to love or to be
compassionate, or the soul itself, through this increase you evolve.
Second Corinthians 4:13 states: It is written: "I believed; therefore I have spoken." With that
same spirit of faith we also believe and therefore speak and act in faith. As part of this
evolutionary process, the spirit works with the subconscious to offer insights and
encouragement. As the spirit merges deeply with the unconscious, it is able to fully present a
true reality of the world.
Its holds true that if we reverse the action of a cause we change the effect and thus halt or at
the very least alter, growth. By the same method which we take a simple arithmetic example of,
10 ÷ 2 = 5, then 10 ÷ 5 = 2; we recognize the ability to change our actions and thus change our
life. We see by the law of cause and effect that negative thought produces negative results and
at the same time, positive thought produces positive results. Therefore all distrust in the law of
growth, whether shown by anxious attempt to gain quick results or by allowing despair to take
the place of optimism, is reversing the cause and thus reversing natural law. It is for this reason
that the Bible stresses “faith” more than any other subject. In like manner spiritual science
vigorously warns us against the profession of doubt or fear; they are contrary to the principle of
growth, and therefore pull us down.
“There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. It separates people, poisons
relationships and disintegrates friendships. It’s the thorn that irritates and the sward that kills.”
We are accustomed to seeing natural law in our everyday life, so, it shouldn’t be difficult to
comprehend that the same law which guides the visible side of nature also directs the invisible
side. Thus, the only variable in the law of growth is not the reality of the law but the violation of
natural law. The principle of growth is the seed itself, along with the actions of the gardener
have a direct effect on the growth of the works. We do not put the seed into ourselves, but we
must introduce it to proper nourishment and care.
