A Path to Freedom from Fear

You who have tried to banish love have not succeeded, but you who choose to banish fear must succeed. The Lord is with you, but you know it not. Yet your Redeemer liveth, and abideth in you in the peace out of which He was created. Would you not exchange this awareness for the awareness of fear? When we have overcome fear — not by hiding it, not by minimizing it, and not by denying its full import in any way — this is what you will really see. You cannot lay aside the obstacles to real vision without looking upon them, for to lay aside means to judge against. If you will look, the Holy Spirit will judge, and He will judge truly. Yet He cannot shine away what you keep hidden, for you have not offered it to Him and He cannot take it from you.

We are therefore embarking on an organized, well-structured and carefully planned program aimed at learning how to offer to the Holy Spirit everything you do not want. He knows what to do with it. You do not understand how to use what He knows. Whatever is given Him that is not of God is gone. Yet you must look at it yourself in perfect willingness, for otherwise His knowledge remains useless to you. Surely He will not fail to help you, since help is His only purpose. Do you not have greater reason for fearing the world as you perceive it, than for looking at the cause of fear and letting it go forever? (A Course in Miracles, T-12.II.9-10. See also ACIM Text Made Simple.)

Everyone in the world is seeking for Love because the world was made by the denial of Love. Fear is the opposite of Love. Thus the world is a place of fear. To release ourselves from the world of fear, we must realize there is nothing in the world we really want. The Love we seek is not here. We already have the Love we seek but we are unaware of it because of our investment in making the world seem real. It is this investment that must be undone.

The means have been given us to undo the fear that comes with our investment in the world of separation. We have to be willing to look at our investment of belief in this world so that we can bring these fearful beliefs to the Holy Spirit in our mind. As we are willing to accept the Holy Spirit’s loving correction of our mistaken beliefs, fear is replaced by Love, just as darkness is dissipated by light.

A Course in Miracles is offering us a carefully planned program to help us recognize our fears and release them with the Holy Spirit’s help in our minds. It is a path to freedom from fear and to experience limitless, eternal unity in Love. We practice this each time we bring our judgments and fears to our inner Teacher with willingness to let them be replaced with Holy Spirit’s vision.
