I am feeling very committed, very determined today. There is no wishy-washy in my determination to accomplish this Journey. Too much is going on in the world not to give absolutely, completely, 100% to Love, Peace, Harmony.
When I attune my mind to the Oneness that is All of Life, I understand my place in Wholeness. I am the very Presence of Life, and this Presence of Life is me. I am blessed through this understanding. In return, I bless all I encounter.
I am very excited about beginning this Journey. I’ve never been prone to panic or anxiety attacks, but recently (ok, let’s be honest, since November 9, 2016), I’ve had bouts of feeling overwhelmed with near-panic and worry. It does not happen often, or regularly, but when it does, I can’t even say what triggers it, or why. It just “comes upon me”. This morning was such a time. I thought, “this feels bigger than me”. And what was implied in that was, “I don’t know how to handle this, or even if I can”.
This is why I need a “Journey of Courage” just now.
Three days ago, I wrote “[Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego] were so filled with trust in God, in His plan, that whatever the outcome, their Peace was unshakable”. Putting courage in the context of unshakable Peace, really makes courage unnecessary. Peace goes first into everything, clearing out any doubt, fear, or worry, which would otherwise require courage to face.
This is why I need a “Journey of Courage” just now: I want the idea of courage to become obsolete, as fear, doubt, and worry dry up, evaporate, become as dust to be blown away in the gentle breath of Peace.
This Journey does not focus on strengthening courage. Instead of strengthening the tool to use against fear, this Journey aims to eliminate the fear, so the tool is not necessary.
We can get there.
What do you want? How badly do you want it? When I woke up this morning, with that lump in my chest from nowhere, thinking, “this feels bigger than me”, I was so glad that I had just written this two days ago:
I declare that I know my Divine Self is bigger than my fears. I know that I am connected with a Power greater than myself which flows through All, connecting each with ALL, and providing All Good to All, at all times. Thus when I am aware of, understand, and Know this Power through me, as me, I am able to walk in Peace and Harmony with All, approaching All with Love. I am committed to realizing this Power through me, as me, in every aspect of my life.
My near-panic may feel bigger than me, but the power I AM is even bigger.
