The separation that we have been conditioned to believe is real causes us to make choices based on our fear – it’s our way of protecting ourselves.
Fear manifests in many forms –- anger, resentment, aggression, emotional challenges, physical and psychological addictions, ready judgment of others, the drama we seek out from others, failure to take responsibility (while blaming others all too easily), feelings of lack, constant defensiveness, projection of our fears onto others (often those closest to us) …
Life becomes all too exhausting. No wonder we suppress our feelings. We carry the fear of not having enough, of not being good enough, of being unloved or unworthy – but it all comes back to the lessons we learned early in life and have carried through life since. A mistake – nothing more! And it is a mistake that can be remedied.
We serve our false needs to protect ourselves from feeling at the whim of life, or at the mercy of others. An important step in regaining our own power, and manifesting the life we truly desire, is the step of relinquishing fear.
