Someone asked : ” What is forgiveness ? ” A little boy gave lovely reply , it is the wonderful fruit that a tree gives when it is being hurt by a stone Reveal Yourself~ The most powerful revelation we can ever experience is that of our self. It's been so long since we were totally open and beyond the fear of the possibility of hurt, that we keep our hearts and minds concealed from the world. Self revelation is not some kind of performance, or the seeking of attention - it is the outcome of the healing of our broken hearts - it is the result of many periods of introspection and meditation where we have seen who and what we really are, as opposed to who and what others have tried to make us. We are able to open and truly reveal ourselves when we see that all our hurts, all our pain, was self-inflicted. That's not easy to see, not easy to accept, but when we do, we realize no one can hurt us unless we let them. They can harm our body, but not our minds, unless we give them permission. This inner realization allows us to be comfortable, unthreatened, safe in moments of self-revelation. Repetition can be a choice, but often it isn't. The athlete or pianist who practices the same routine day after day, year after year, has their eye on a goal. The unending repetition is a conscious choice in the pursuit of a life dream. But what about the sameness of most lives? Observe the morning commute, the after-work drink, the Sunday football game or religious service - how many of those people are consciously following their dream, training their mind, body, and spirit through that daily repetition? And how many are mindlessly slogging through each day out of habit and boredom? - Jonathan Lockwood Huie
Fear comes in many forms. In nature it is designed to keep us safe. In society it manifests in many ways and can be perceived as unavoidable. Fear in nature is in the Now. Fear in society, is mostly an imagined fear of a possible future outcome. Understand the difference?
