This business of life is not about becoming something different than you are. It is about accepting the truth about your specialness. And that means letting go of your beliefs of unworthiness – accepting the truth of who you are. It is the resolution of that seeming conflict that will eventually bring you to discard what you have come to believe and accept the truth about yourself.
Fear involves the real or imagined loss of something we are attached to. The fear is real. Everyone is different, but we all have fears. Some people’s fears are abnormal, but they are very real for them. What our fears have in common is that the event in question always exists in the future. One additional factor is that you have little control over the outcome.
Moving to the God Space means relinquishing the ego. And that means giving up a good deal of what we believe to be true, especially about ourselves. Surrendering to the God Space threatens the foundations we have built our lives on, even though these foundations are patently false.
And the one thing that stands out from all the rest is how strongly we resist making the changes that are asked of us. Most people have to get backed into a corner with no other way out, before they will make the changes that The Universe has been asking of them all along.
People report stress as being the most vexing problem they face. First of all, stress feels like it is an external thing, but really it is an inside job. Stress is an internal reaction to an external threat, combined with the feeling that you will not be able to cope with the situation. And thus, you fear the outcome.
