This is actually one of the most difficult tasks set before us in this life. We have been indoctrinated from birth to view others as competition. The Cabal have established this entire world system on ideas of external validation. Even the school systems are founded upon the illusion and lie that you must be better than someone else.
We even now see ourselves as in competition with ourselves. We view our weaknesses as enemies, rather than as friends that we LOVE so much as to heal them. So many proclaim to only be in competition with the one they were yesterday, forgetting that the one they were yesterday was the same one who got them to today.
We sabotage so much of our own happiness and success by viewing ourselves as enemies, fearing that we will prevent ourselves from being great. We know, intuitively, that no one else can stop us. We actually are inherently cognitive of the truth that others have no real desire to conquer us. Their fear is that they cannot conquer themselves, and that fear is then projected onto us.
The only enemy we truly have is our own ego. If we can just subdue and have dominion over the ego, which is the veil of separation between humanity and Divinity. Humanity is of the animal nature. Fear is its only government, and survival its only law. For this reason, the human animal is always seeking to protect itself and those most like it from everyone else. Because humans, just as lions, sharks, hawks, snakes, spiders, etc., seek to survive rather than live, they perceive so much as threats to their survival.
We have such a difficult time in all of our relationships because the thought consumes us that someone, everyone even, is out to get us. Even I subconsciously deal with this very battle. I expect to be a friend to all. It is an accountability I hold myself to. However, I have a difficult time receiving from others that which I freely give. It is unfair, as one of the church mothers, Mother Young, told me years ago, to pour out and not allow others to pour back into you. However, for many of us, it is much easier to give than it is to receive, so as not to become a debtor to another. Unfortunately, in this manner do we also create enemies out of our own vain imaginations.
How, then, do we overcome this fear instinct? Surely, perfect LOVE does cast out all fear, but none of us can perfect LOVE all alone. This is because G-d is perfect LOVE, and each of us is only part of G-d. We have to choose to be vulnerable; choose to let our guard now, and stop seeing threats everywhere we turn. We have to ready ourselves to receive the harvest of the abundance within us. This abundance is not at all material, but is completely Divine. Sadly, we have been taught to fear G-d, and that indoctrination has caused us to fear ourselves and one another.
Transparency is the first step to casting out that fear. To look at ourselves as naked and unashamed, allowing ourselves to stand before others as naked and unashamed brings us to the point of true intimacy. This is the intimacy of friendship, and the intimacy that leads to Holy Matrimony. I understand now how I have sabotaged relationships in the past. It wasn’t that they were out to take advantage of me, but that I had an expectation of them that they would. It is essentially self-fulfilling prophecy. The very things we fear come upon us, all because we manifest them.
So, the simple solution is to let G-d, the Divine Life Force within us, arise, and Its enemies be scattered; let them which hate It flee from before It. Our problem is that we have been trying for so long to just survive, and in our attempt to just survive we have forgotten that we are both abundant and eternal. We must now give ourselves away, in purity, that we can experience the abundant life and the eternal life that we are created to inherit.
“We are the world. We are the children. We are the ones to make a brighter day, so let’s start giving. There’s a choice we’re making. We’re saving our own lives. It’s true we’ll make a brighter day, just you and me.” – Michael Jackson / Lionel Richie We Are the World lyrics © Sony/ATV Music Publishing LLC
