W-48: There is nothing to fear.

Commentary (full lesson beneath commentary)

Jesus Walks on Water Ivan Aivazovsky 1888There is nothing to fear.  There is no thing to fear.  There are no things because things are made up by the ego.

Complete safety is our birthright.  In the Light which we really are, there is nothing but Radiance streaming through Timelessness.

When you know you are not a body, you feel safe in the world, even if the world is unsafe.

This is how Jesus walked on water — Light bodies obey the laws of God, not gravity!


There is nothing to fear.

The idea for today simply states a fact.  It is not a fact to those who believe in illusions, but illusions are not facts.  In truth there is nothing to fear.  It is very easy to recognize this.  But it is very difficult to recognize it for those who want illusions to be true.

Today’s practice periods will be very short, very simply and very frequent.  Merely repeat the idea as often as possible.  You can use it with your eyes open at any time and in any situation.  It is strongly recommended, however, that you take a minute or so whenever possible to close your eyes and repeat the idea to yourself slowly several times.  It is particularly important that you use the idea immediately, should anything disturb your peace of mind.

The presence of fear is a sure sign that you are trusting in your own strength.  The awareness that there is nothing to fear shows that somewhere in your mind, though not necessarily in a place that you recognize as yet, you have remembered God, and let His strength take the place of your weakness.  The instant you are willing to do this there is indeed nothing to fear.
