Transcending Fear

Words are so much fun! To transcend is to surpass, outstrip or outdo according to Roget and Fear is consternation or anxiety or fright or heebie-jeebies or panic or terror.
Transcend each one of those. What level of Fear are you transcending?

In The Science of Mind glossary transcendent is defined as ‘That which is of superlative quality. Reaching Beyond. Surpassing.’
Fear – The Science of Mind glossary says: ‘Perfect love casteth out fear.’ ‘Fear not, little flock, it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.’ Fear is the antithesis of faith. It is the negation of confidence. Like Faith, fear may be conscious or subjective, and if it is to be eliminated, it must be removed both consciously and subjectively.

Can we think of reward and punishment from any other viewpoint then that sin is a mistake and Punishment a consequence, that virtue and righteousness must find their corresponding effects in our experience? God neither punishes nor rewards. Such a concept of God would create dualism, a house divided against itself. Such a house cannot stand. Life is a blessing or a curse according to the use we make of it. In the long run, no one judges us but ourselves and no one condemns us but ourselves. We believe in a law that governs all things and all people. If we make mistakes we suffer. We are our own reward and our own punishment.

So – Fear is the antithesis of faith. So let us have more faith, faith in God, faith in ourselves, faith in our world, faith in the Law.

Make the decision.

Shakespeare stated: This above all: to thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the day the night, thou canst not be false to any man.
Holmes said: . . .and we all use the creative power of the Universal Mind every time we use our own mind.
Further Holmes said: The happy outlook on life is always constructive; the understanding heart is filled with sympathy and helpfulness toward all.
Perfect love casteth out fear.
