There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear … for God is love. 

I John 4: 18, 16

There is no fear in love and there is no liberation from fear without love.  Fear is based on the supposition that we are unprotected, rejected, and friendless.  If the fearful mind would entertain love and the harmony and peace that go with it, it must turn from everything that denies this love, and trusting in Divine Guidance, open its being to the influx of love, not just love of God but love of everything, for love is all-inclusive.

“I will fear no evil for thou art with me.”  Today Divine love and infinite tenderness sustain me. In order that I shall not separate myself from this love, I endeavor to see it reflected in everyone and everything.  I shall permit only that which is loving, kind and true to find entrance or exit through my consciousness.  Thus I shall be assured that I am bathed in the warm glow of that Love which casteth out all fear.

Becoming conscious of myself as I really exist in the Mind of God, I shall find that I am walking in pathways of peace; that something within me like a magnet attracts that which belongs to itself.  This something is Love, the supreme impulsion of the universe.  I know that I have no existence apart from this Love.  As I grow in the knowledge that I am one with the Spirit, I know that I shall grow in the ability to use the Love within me.
