"Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learned here. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and prejudices and the acceptance of love back in our hearts. Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life."
What if our whole spiritual purpose was to unlearn all the fear in our lives? Fear is not something we were born with. When we were children we were full of love, curiosity and joy. The world was an enchanting place full of mystery.
So what happened over those years as we grew older? We learned fear. Our conditioning from society showed us there was much to be afraid of.
In the book, The Mists of Avalon there is an enchanted island surrounded by thick mists. The only way the mists would part and a ship could find the island was if the people on the ship believed the island was there.
This is symbolic in our lives as well: there is enchantment and sacredness in each day, but we won't be able to see it unless we believe it is there. The miracles won't happen unless we believe they exist. There is a whole mystery of the universe at work, but sometimes we are living too much in our fear to realize it~
