Fear!

Fear is the appearance of false evidence, perceived as truth, which several of us struggle with from time to time. For transparency, those who have been here more than once should have a fairly good idea of where I am in my approach to life. In the classroom of life, we are ever learning. Recently, I discovered another profound lesson about fear. I believe that the most faithful believer, motivated and driven among us, do confront this imposter fear! That is what it is because it makes us think of falsehood in its appearance as being otherwise. Experiencing fear has very little to do with being less than who we know ourselves to be; it’s simply a side effect of being human. Some moments cause distortions that influence our outlook depending on where we are spiritually and what information we process during those times.

The dynamics of those events and how we perceive our place and role in the larger scheme of things can cloud our vision. To see them not as they truly are but rather as we believe them to be. The scariest thing is believing them to be true or real when they are not often dictated by incomplete or false information received. Proverbs 4:23 tells us, ”Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it springs the issues of life.” Here we are reminded to keep our hearts pure because the total sum of who we are and what we do comes from the heart. However, in a perfect world, that would be easy to adhere to without deviation, but that’s not the case because we are flawed beings, even the best among us. What I gained from those bouts of fear, which, thank God, passed, are those times that have allowed me to get into that place of intimacy with God empowers. Therefore, fear becomes a catalyst to sure up faith leading to emotional enrichment. So, sometimes what had caused discomfort served to usher us into that place of experiencing our higher self. Peace!!
