In light of that, I notice my upbringing that was based in fear and and see that I've spend my life moving away from that original, unquestioned belief (that "life is safer when lived in fear"). I am trusting myself and no longer need to reason with myself constantly with decisions -- they make themselves when I trust me, listening to my inner voice
Another part of the affirmation is that I trust and support that this is where I'm supposed to be right here, right now and that I cannot possibly move my self ahead of my own evolution.
When I'm in this space of trust, I see the way out of the fear, step by step, laid out before me, clear as day. My children are then witnesses to a a real process of evolution that happens to be going on in their mother. It is reality and the evidence is that we're more vital and intimate than ever before when we sit in this space of trusting and loving what is, together. I have been showing them the way out of Hell in my opinion (the only kind of hell I know of - we don't have to die to go there in my experience), and now they're blessed with the knowledge of how that's done should they ever experience suffering from the effects of believing that they want reality to be different than it is at any given time in their lives and they're not experiencing what they want in that moment.
In that space, they're not sheltered from
reality they're trusted along with
In addition, I see that my children are noticing that they want to generously serve others with their knowledge of the path to peace on Earth. Truly universal healthcare, IMO.
"I hear you. This, to me, would be similar to the question of ~ Do you
save your child from running into traffic or do you let them 'learn
for themselves' about cause and effect in this area?
"My response is that of course I protect my child from traffic. The
difference is, however, that I'm clear that my reason is because it
makes ME feel better to do so and not becaus I presume to know what is
best for them, which I cannot possibly know in my experience and opinion.
This is what I'm referring to when I speak of 'staying in my own
business' -- which is never a vacuum and often (if not always) spills
over into all of humanity, including my dear children".
I delelted who posted this, and now I can't find it. Hopefully I am not losing my brain. lol Well, I have but ykwim. lol
This is the first post I recall about fear Vs trust. It wasn't you, MM, it was May May, a different MM.
