Our Dear One, Ren of Branching Out has offered this most important of questions. Ren has kindly allowed me to make mention of her.
Thank You so much, Ren. I know your question will help many.
Question 16: How do we know when we have truly obtained freedom from fear?
This becomes known to us when we are not affected by the negative. By this I mean:
Once we understand how The Fantasy works; that is, by reading and rereading, or listening again and again to the audios of our Free Books, little by little the values inherent within this particular fantasy begin to unfold.
It takes time and effort; the brain will at first, kick, spit, squabble and jerk. However, with perseverance the words begin to have their effect. In other words, the negatives begin to loosen their grip. With the acceptance that comes by reading and listening; slowly there comes a greater ability to ward off what might have otherwise affected you.
I can’t stress enough the importance of reading and/or listening. I also can’t express enough the importance of diligence. For, this is what it will take if you are to circumnavigate the innate negativity we bear.
Over time and with the desire to be free of fear uppermost in your thoughts, you will begin to be aware of your thoughts.
Normally, this is not the case. We go about our lives with little thought to the consequences of our thoughts. They roam about in our minds causing us angst and pain and sorrow and grief. However, when we become aware of our thoughts it is generally with some surprise that we realise how negative they are.
The answer then to the question becomes:
When we are truly cognizant of our thoughts, and they remain free of the negative values, then and only then can we know we have truly obtained freedom from fear.
