The Transformation of Fear
by Jim Donovan
Just like all energy, your fears can be transformed and used. They can be re-focused and re-directed. You have the choice about whether you spend your energy in fear of something, or if you invest that energy into understanding, overcoming and transforming it.
Understand that the energy exists either way and it's our thoughts that charge it. The more you decide to live, act, and speak in a way that serves the highest good of all, the less afraid you will become. The more you engage in the service of others, the more you will understand our innate connection with each other, with nature, and with all that is.
It is possible to work for the betterment of yourself and enhancing the life of people around you by aligning yourself with purpose. Resist spending hours in the mundane and instead invest that time into things that feed your spirit.
Now is the time to decide to be in charge of how you frame your beliefs. Decide which of your beliefs serve your higher good and which ones hold you back. Be conscious and aware of how fear drives your day to day decision making processes.
Remember the words of Mahatama Gandhi ..."When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall — think of it, always."
