1-12. Fear is not the opposite of love. Neither is anger or hatred. Being not of this world, love is unopposed. You are already free.
Important beyond all measure but of no actual consequence is the simple Truth that Love has no opposite. Love remains forever unopposed, universal in its aspect of being able to transcend all that appears to be real to reach out towards the clouded Souls of so many of the Children of God who choose to believe that they dwell in darkness and fear when in Truth, they are not alone and have never been abandoned by themselves or by God. Fear is a mysterious concept in some ways. It lives a shadow life, playing upon the insecurities of many, enabling them to attempt to use self-justifying techniques to provide solidity to a concept that has no foundation, no reality and no ability to stand on its own. There is nothing to fear. Nothing at all. There has never been and there will never be. All fear is but an illusion, a dark lie that the ego will whisper to you, informing you that you can be threatened and that you can be destroyed. Indeed the ego can be destroyed, easily and rapidly. It is not actually real, it has no life beyond what you choose to give it, and it has no purpose but to lie to you and to ask you to feed its monstrous energy, over and over again, forever cycling into larger and large aspects of illusion until it attempts to fully overwhelm your mind. You are welcome to allow this to occur, but it will have no effect other than to tire you endlessly and to leave you drained and cowering in a corner, perhaps even literally afraid of your own shadow. A shadow you might even be said to be at that pitiful point, dwelling in the Light of Love but so certain of your frightfully tiny stature that you choose to be afraid of even the Light itself. Anger can be a challenging and troublesome emotional state. It can twist and distort a mind to a truly egregious extent, leading to consequences that may be irreparable. Anger is not at all what you might believe it to be. It is not a justified desire to harm another. Indeed no thought of attack has any justification in Reality. Anger is simply a method employed by the mind to layer frustration on top of great and miserable fear. Fear is the base emotional state that causes the arising of all thought of rage. Anger twists the challenges of fear, replacing an inwardly looking and self-destructive cycle of ever increasing layers of degradation with an outwardly focused process that demands that another be punished for the supposed “sin” or mistakes of the self. In Truth, you cannot “sin”. You can error. Error is commonplace and completely normal. It is not be questioned or held on to. Errors serve the purpose of learning. Learning has great utility in this world and in the process of returning to Truth. But to become stuck in a single event, a momentary error or misjudgment or misalignment with your life’s purpose and your Path in this world, this is not of any value and serves no purpose within your life. Do not allow fear or its distorted cousin anger to blind you from Truth. You have a Path and a purpose. This Path is for you alone. No other Soul’s Path is identical to yours. Your Path may share aspects with theirs, but they are not identical. Nor can they be exchanged. Instead of attempting to replace your life with another’s, or being jealous of their journey and the material rewards you perceive them as enjoying that you to do not share in, accept that you have no way of knowing why they are at any particular place in their lives. Hatred, above and beyond fear or anger, is truly a twisted and bizarrely unnatural belief and emotional state. As all that you give to others is also given to yourself in equal measure, to hate another is to actually hate that which you know or feel is a part of you that is also in them. This is dichotomous in the extreme. Truly insane is any hatred as it holds another hostage to your anger but they can never be hostage to you. You cannot attack them with your mind. Your mind cannot bind them. So to allow yourself to feel that you hate another is to actual condemn yourself to a hell of your own creation, a place of such darkness that to even begin to see the Light of Love again, you will have no choice but relinquish your insane desire to bind another’s will or mind to your twisted and warped desire that they be anything other than what they actually are. All Souls are different. There are no perfect alignments between Souls. Degrees and layers of connection and unity are possible. But a perfect joining of two Souls is not a concept that has any meaning in this world. Souls can join indeed, and will at the end of their journey, but to fully Unite with another Soul would require both Souls to relinquish their egos completely. This is not a transformation that occurs with much regularity within the bounds of this world. As such, hatred, being a desire to be able to damage, condemn, debase or degrade another person, is a meaningless concept in truth. You cannot force another into a life in a hell that you have created for them to dwell in. This is not possible. All of your hatred, anger and fear have no effect on anyone but you. To demand that another be hurt from the anger you wish to direct toward them is meaningless. This cannot be. The degree to which you desire to hate another is the degree to which you, in truth, desire and have elected to hate yourself. This is a sad state of affairs if you believe that you have the power to hurt another but are in fact directing all of that hatred towards only yourself. Incapable of understanding that they are in many ways an isolated and singular mind, one that can change its own mind but not one that can change the mind of any other Soul, a great many people choose to be in their own personal hell, living and reveling in it for years, perhaps for their entire lives, without any real understanding that they are causing all of the pain that they feel. Constantly looking outwards, they are incapable of seeing that they are the reason that they hurt. Forever assigning the blame and causation of their misery to the actions of others, they remain unable to become forgiving to any significant degree. Forgiveness is not for others. It is for you. You alone can benefit from forgiveness. Being forever undaunted by the supposed effects of all of the pain and torment and regret that those Souls who choose to hate have created for themselves in their own lives, Love stands unopposed and incapable of diminution no matter what might be cast against it by the minds of so many who chose to believe that their minds are somehow correct, that they can hate and that this hatred can have any effect on any mind but their own. Love shines a Light of such great brightness, clarity and penetrating certainty that nothing can ever reduce the Light of Love and Truth. A great many illusions exist in this world. However being illusionary, these illusions of truths that are not True cannot ever have any effect on anyone at all. But Free Will allows any person to believe that the effects of fear, hatred and distain for others can indeed have an effect. This is not true and the consequences of these beliefs are universally applied solely towards and within the minds that hold these thoughts. Love offers another way. Another thought pattern and an escape or rather a return to that which has always been Real. Within eternity, Love reigns and shines and is known as Reality. This eternity was the original state of your mind. But this changed, and now you find yourself here in this world in which it appears possible that all that you see has somehow been created to hurt or damage you. That all the people that you cast your gaze upon have only the darkest intentions for you. That there is no comfort, no solace and no home to be found here. This is also not true. Love came with you to this world. It did not leave you when you chose to come here. It followed, and indeed it reigns supreme in this world just as it does in Truth. But while Eternity is a state of mind and so much more, and not a place, Love is more than just a state of mind. It is an energy flow, a chain of support and radiant Truth that forever cycles and moves, a great ocean current or a river that forever provides all of the clarity that you or any other Soul will ever need to know that you are already Safe, that you are Loved beyond all that you could ever imagine, and that you have never left your Home. You only dream of being in a world that appears to be hostile. There is nothing to fear as Love is your Home and when you are ready, you will find this Home again – it is forever alive in your heart.
