Week 3 – Facing our Fears
Non-resistant thought expands the Solar Plexus; resistant thought contracts it. Pleasant thought expands it; unpleasant thought contracts it. Thoughts of courage, power, confidence and hope all produce a corresponding state, but the one arch enemy of the Solar Plexus which must be absolutely destroyed before there is any possibility of letting any light shine is fear. This enemy must be completely destroyed; he must be eliminated; he must be expelled forever; he is the cloud which hides the sun; which causes a perpetual gloom. 3.14
Over the past few months I’ve felt myself becoming even more attuned to daily life, nature, people, in fact everything with renewed perception. It’s been interesting noting how everyone you meet, circumstances, events convey either a symbolic or different form of meaning for each and every encounter, and how much we are all linked – no matter who you are – one consciousness springs to mind but unique in individuality.
This week has been of particular significance to myself in an eye opening way. I was writing a note to a family member advising that silence and ‘sitting on the fence was not the way to solve a situation. We have to face our fears no matter the outcome. Little did I know at the time that I was actually talking to myself. The words were meant for me!
I’d had several conversations with my friend and we’d laugh at ourselves, because of this very same reason. It was the realisation that we are all linked to one another, reflecting all too often the different aspects of ourselves, sometimes apparent, and sometimes in very subtle ways. Our subconscious nudging us to take note of what we needed to acknowledge, learn from and release the memories, emotions, physical blockages of all that no longer serves us. This we already knew but it was the deeper level of meaning and understanding that took us by surprise.
As I read and take in the words of Part 3 of the Master Key. I am particularly drawn to the words and realised how much I’d allowed, in this instance, lack of self-belief, self- value and fear of myself to block my path. This realisation was painful to acknowledge. However, I am taking this on the chin because I understand awareness begins the process of healing, it’s all part and parcel of connecting back to our creator. The part where I know I need to love myself no matter what thereby eliminating all fear, to let go and relax.
The choice is do I beat myself up, or do I give myself a pat on the back and recognise as I look back over my previous blogs that I have come a long way. I think, no I know, I prefer the latter.
I am very much aware as I take the courage to shift within myself and take off the layers of cement, my thoughts be it negative or positive are manifesting at a much greater speed. Knowing this I am truly valuing the importance of our sits (meditation).
It is this personal devil which makes men fear the past, the present and the future; fear themselves, their friends and their enemies; fear everything and everybody. When fear is effectually and completely destroyed, your light will shine, the clouds will disperse and you will have found the source of power, energy and life. 3.15
When you find that you are really one with the Infinite power, and when you can consciously realize this power by a practical demonstration of your ability to overcome any adverse condition by the power of your thought, you will have nothing to fear; fear will have been destroyed and you will have come into possession of your birth right. 3.16
