Slaying The Dragon Of Fear

Rays of Wisdom - Comfort for the Bereaved - Slaying The Dragon Of Fear

What do we have to fear? Nothing!
Whom do we have to fear? No-one!
Do you know why?
It is because when we become reunited
With our Highest or God Self,
We take possession of some great privileges.

First in line is God’s omnipotence,
Which in truth is also ours.
Although the only one who has any true power is God,
As soon as we have learnt to walk
Hand in hand with God and the Angels,
God’s power works through us and is therefore ours.

Each one of us is a young God in the making.
When God has become our guiding light in all things,
And we follow Its advice without hesitation,
We gain access to true power,
And all manner of miracles begin to happen.

When we rediscover our true immortal nature,
Death loses its sting, for there will be no more deaths for us,
Merely transformations into different states of being.
This knowledge is the kind of intoxication
That has no need for wine.

St. Francis of Assisi

The only way of slaying the dragon of fear is through making it our business to find out all we can about what scares us. We shall get no further, until we have fully explored and got to know what God is and who are we. Being told by the churches of our world that when we die, we go to God is not an end in itself; it is merely a starting point. The churches are telling us the truth, but to this day its vision can still be surprisingly narrow. However, it is in the nature of things that we all have a different perspective on life. Although it is the only one we have, our consciousness is always in search of expanding its knowledge of God and the processes of life; that is what we are all here for.

Our relationship with God is the most intimate one we shall ever have with anyone. God is the part we seek in other people, especially in our loved ones. Even if we are still searching in vain in some of them for the qualities of faithfulness, goodness, kindness, truth, loyalty and honesty, this happens for good and wise reason. The characteristics we are looking for in others are those of the Divine; we all have them in seed form. Each new lifetime we enter offers renewed opportunities for bringing them forth and developing them, so that they can be integrated into our consciousness, and this is true for everybody.

Until we start looking for the higher and highest virtues, as well as the missing part of ourselves, in the right place, i.e. within and bring them forth from there ourselves, it will remain impossible to find them in others. And if those around us look in the same place, if they but turn towards their inner lover to guide and protect them, they too will find that there is no part of them missing; that you are not that part and that you cannot make them whole. You cannot, because each one of us already is whole and complete within themselves. The people in the world around us are but outer manifestations, reflections and a kind of mirror of what is within.

It is essential that we have human beings around us and with us on our pathway, because it is through our human relationships that we grow and develop. But we do not need other people to make us whole. They are not the missing part of ourselves that we have been seeking, ever since – for wise evolutionary purposes – we left behind the conscious awareness of our oneness with God and all life. No matter how close our relationship with anyone will ever be, we can never become fully one with them, because we are not meant to be. The only way of being one with them is on the inner levels of life, where we and all life always have remained one.
