People often ask, "How do I get rid of my fears?" It is either that or something similar to that. Fortunately, the answer is very simple. Once you get into the answer,everything becomes very simple, and fear lets go just like that! Let us have a look now...
We will start by looking at these four things and their opposites.
Love comes from within. The opposite of love is no love.Often, people have said that the opposite of love is fear,and in an abstract way that is correct. It is correct because, generally, you tend to have either one or the other. When fear is absent, you feel the love that is always there. When fear comes in, you are blinded from the love.But, upon closer observation, you will notice that you can have both emotions running over the same thing. So in a direct sense, the opposite of love is no love. Love is acceptance, so the opposite of love can also be called non-acceptance.
Fear, as we have seen, is a separate emotion. Fear is false evidence appearing real. You fear because you doubt your capability to handle something or create a successful outcome. Otherwise you would not fear if you did not doubt your ability not to be touched by that which you fear. In truth, there is nothing to fear. It may not be evident now why this is so, or it may be. Either way, you will see it soon. There is nothing to fear. Anyway, fear is what blocks your feeling of love within, and with that it takes your power away simply because power is vested in love. Force is vested in fear and sometimes force looks like power, but it isn't even close in comparison and lasting effect. So now we know that fear is what obscures love and power. The question then remains, what gets rid of fear or what allows fear?Well, what is the opposite of fear? It is no fear. No fear is the opposite of fear. How do you get to no fear?
Fear comes in when faith is not there. Faith is more than believing. Faith is closer to knowing than to believing.When you know, you know. Its like when you go to pick up a glass of water and drink it, you don't doubt you will manage. You just drink knowing it works. That is knowing. As light step behind knowing is faith. When you have faith,you pretty much know you are fine, one way or another,despite appearances to the contrary. When you have no faith,you get fear. And that is the key to removing fear, having faith. So how do you have faith?
With understanding. Understanding ensures faith, simply because you know how things work. Think of a time you felt confused and incapable because you missed the information,and then when you got the information and understanding, you had peace and you knew you could just easily do what you had previously feared. Understanding of how life works, How Life Works, is the key. Take a look under the hood of life, into the Machinery behind Life, and with that new immense understanding you will have automatic faith. It is a loop.You have faith because you know how it works, and so you have faith that it works.
And as a bonus to understanding, you have peace within yourself and with others.
And so the first step to all these things, to having faith, eliminating doubt and fear, to having peace, is all in getting an understanding. Not just any understanding. Things are in layers. There is a layer that is the foundation, a causative layer, and a layer that is the superficial, the effect layer that is built on the foundation. The understanding of the causal layer is one we are talking about here. Fortunately, there is much available to us nowadays in terms of high-level wisdom and insights. Seekt hem and understand, if you wish to have the key out of the box.
