I was talking to my friend Lisa the other day and told her about a project I started out of fear. I have been known to be very judgemental of myself when creating from this space. She asked if I was continuing the project out of fear. I told her it had shifted to love. Her response to my self-judgment was to say to me that the fear had served its purpose then.
I had never looked at fear as serving a Divine Purpose before. On the contrary, it was always something I had to transcend. Isn’t that the goal of becoming a spiritual being to no longer live in fear? After this conversation, I think not. The purpose of the spiritual seeker is to use all of our emotions and experiences for our highest good. It may take some time to reach that goal, but eventually we all do
Fear can be either destructive or constructive. Fear was designed to keep us safe, not to be used as a shaming device. How it changed over millennia, I know not. But if The One Creator created everything, doesn’t it make sense that fear is one of those Creations?
From this point forward, I will look to fear as one of the many emotions my soul uses to move me to a higher place consciously.
