Yes, my friends; if we are to ‘become harmless’ then we must also apply this to ourselves. For, if we fear life we are harming ourselves.
This is true, dearest. Yes indeed; if we have fearful thoughts we are indeed harming ourselves.
To thine own self be trueby William Shakespeare. In Act 1, Scene III of the famous play, Hamlet.
This is a statement that is heard in many arenas. Is it not, dearest?
Yes, it is.
And what do you believe this to mean, dearest?
I can only think upon it in its opposite meaning, so to speak. Were we not being true to ourselves we would be harming ourselves. For, we would not be being honest with ourselves. We would not be doing the right thing by ourselves.
Precisely, dearest, yes; we would not be doing the right thing by ourselves. And would you consider harming yourself to be doing the ‘right thing’ by yourself?
No, of course not.
And why is this?
It seems so obvious to me that to do the wrong thing by yourself is to harm yourself.
Once again, dearest, this is precisely the point.
Do we wish to harm ourselves, Dear Heart? Or do we wish to do the ‘right thing’?
This question is one that only you can answer, Dear One. No one can answer this question for you. No, this is a certainty. And only you, Dear Heart, can guarantee yourself a pleasant life free of fear.
Yes, this requires an enormous amount of self work; yes indeed. However, with desire, acceptance and patience to guide you, you are assured of a degree of enjoyment that will grow as you wipe away the tears of fear.
