“Wherever you are afraid, try to explore, and you will find death hiding somewhere behind. All fear is of death. Death is the only fear source.” – Osho

Psalm 27:1

The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom should I fear?

+++

If you are aware of what’s happening in the world, you may find it hard not to fear:

Senseless violence; people treating other people, creatures, and creation with cruelty; earthquakes; hurricanes; a lack of decency and compassion in politics; climate change.

But amidst all of this is a thread-of-Goodness.

There are people giving their lives for others.

There are people putting aside their ego-pursuits in favor of compassionate work on behalf of the common good.

There is a bigger picture.

What’s happening today is such a tiny, infinitesimal blip in time that it would seem totally insignificant.

In a hundred years, all of today’s concerns will be dissolved.

What truly matters…is love; the compassion that is sparked in the hearts of those who are moved to take action on behalf of the common good.

God, who is love itself (1 John 4:8), is holding and animating the entire universe, moving it forward in a Creative-Flow-of-Goodness.

It cannot be defeated.

As St. Paul put it: “Love never fails” (1 Corinthians 13:8).

When a violent storm assailed the boat that Jesus and his followers were aboard, the fearful followers woke Jesus from his sleep.

Then Jesus said: “Why are you terrified? Do you not yet have faith?” (Mark 4:40)

Ah, that is the question!

Do you not know that you are a wondrous spiritual being, loved thoroughly and unconditionally by God?

Do you not know that as we live-from-this-place-of-Eternal-Love that physical death will just be a portal to a new and transformed life?

While material things will pass away, faith, hope and love will remain; “but the greatest of these is love” (1 Corinthians 13:13).
