You Must Love the Truth if you want to be Free of Fear.
I made a trip to the grocery store today in my usual elevated conscious state. I was on a mission to get some brew and something sweet to eat. In my haste to get my stuff, get back to the NFL game I left, I walked into the store and went shopping with delighted focus. I grabbed the items on my agenda unhurriedly but with a sense of urgency that matched my sweet tooths ache. I was all through the store trying to quickly figure out what I had a taste for and what others might like. I ended up getting two pies because I couldn’t choose between cherry and apple, I got butter pecan cream, because who doesn’t like butter pecan.
It wasn’t until I was in line about to be next at the register that I realized I was in the store the whole time without wearing a mask. Heaven forbid! For some reason, I felt immediate embarrassment. For a moment I felt ashamed for not following protocol. Right then I felt I wasn’t being a good citizen. Like I was actually putting other people at risk. Then it dawned on me, I don’t have shit to be ashamed of.
I realized, my understanding of truth is why I am free of worry about not wearing a mask. This understanding is what others need. It is the truth that makes me free. Some may ask ‘What is the truth that makes you free in this case’ My understanding of who I am in the universal supreme creative force and who the universal supreme creative force is in me makes me brave. I know that God can’t be against God. What is of God cannot harm God. This truth is the truth that sets me free of fear.
This new fear that makes people look at you strangely because you aren’t afraid to walk around breathing freely is a byproduct of not knowing the aforementioned truth. As long as I keep this truth impressed wholeheartedly upon my subjective/subconscious mind, I am empowered with the same consciousness the 23 Psalm expresses. The Lord is my shepherd…
My duty is to help others to understand the power of this truth. Quite difficult to do when it is becoming customary to express fear. Man cannot serve two masters. Which means we should not be double-minded. I have no problem keeping protocol with the use of the mask, however, I shall express no fear of any consequences of not doing so. This means I shall not let other people’s fear become my own. This means not feeling shame for not realizing I didn’t put on a make just to enter a store.
On the contrary. I believe I should be ashamed if I really believed I needed one. This would mean I have forgotten something more important. I would have forgotten the truth that makes me free.
