Fear = "False Evidence Appearing Real." There is nothing to fear.
I have been through a lot of stress lately with my mother being rushed to ER, and the writer's block, fear of financial insecurity that seems to pervade all our lives as we navigate the new economy -- I'm accidentally running a sober recovery house. (More on that later.)
But I've experienced absolute transformation when I surrender my worries and fears to a Higher Power. I call this force GOOD or God, but you can call it LOVE or Nature. The important thing is to realize you are not alone, and you are loved. Use all of us - picture ALL your loved ones as your HP (Higher Power.) Picture all the good guys of mankind as your higher power.
I have spine-tingling, first hand evidence that miracles are natural laws of the universe. What I call "a miracle" is simply the amazing secret knowledge that there is a law of nature that actually rescues me when I am stressed or in fear. It actually heals my body when I depend on this power. When I relax and 'let go" and pray (which means I yell HELP) or silently cry out to the Universe for help — help always comes. And when I help someone else, my suffering vanishes.
"Share your pain you cut it in half; share your joy, you double it."
AND don't forget this: "You can be attractive even if you’re not good looking because if you radiate love you attract people! (That’s a joke I wrote.) Scientists have discovered that brain activity produces waves that are measurable according to your level of serenity or agitation. And Einstein said, “No problem can be solved on the same level it was created on.” In other words, you can't fight fire with fire; you can't cure alcoholism with more alcohol; you can’t start a war to create peace — you have to go to a higher level — a spiritual or diplomatic solution. Or as George Carlin put it, “Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity.”
