There is nothing to fear.

The idea for today simply states a fact. It is not a fact to those who believe in illusions, but illusions are not facts. In truth there is nothing to fear. It is very easy to recognize this. But it is very difficult to recognize it for those who want illusions to be true.

Today's practice periods will be very short, very simple and very frequent. Merely repeat the idea as often as possible. You can use it with your eyes open at any time and in any situation. It is strongly recommended, however, that you take a minute or so whenever possible to close your eyes and repeat the idea slowly to yourself several times. It is particularly important that you use the idea immediately, should anything disturb your peace of mind.

The presence of fear is a sure sign that you are trusting in your own strength. The awareness that there is nothing to fear shows that somewhere in your mind, though not necessarily in a place you recognize as yet, you have remembered God, and let His strength take the place of your weakness. The instant you are willing to do this there is indeed nothing to fear.

The one constant that always

The one constant that always awakens me from my slumber is this particular phrase: "the presence of fear is a sure sign that you are trusting in your own strength". Go ahead and ask yourself just who am I trusting in this present moment?

I read this book over a year

I read this book over a year ago, and whilst I finished the course at he time, I only fully understood this lesson having read it now. There is this beautiful thing that happens where the words of the book initially sound very interesting, and inspiring - and then at times, the words suddenly transform and mirror your state of mind - they suddenly become "true". If the words on this page don't sound true, don't worry - don't feel like your not getting it because on some level, you ARE getting it. It just takes some time to sink in. We are born into a world that at times feels so far removed from all of this. But it is available to us at any time. Trust the process of this book, you are in good Hands.
