ELIAS ON FEARFULNESS OF SELF
Your greatest limitation is your fearfulness of self; not of your environment, not of other individuals, but of your own selves and what you may be creating for you and what you may discover about you. Therefore, you hold a fearfulness of this "black hole" that is the deep inner you, which possesses all of your dark secrets that you do not allow even your objective self to view. But within your black hole of yourself is merely the belief systems that you have acquired that suggest to you that you are not worthy, or that you may not accomplish, or that another is BETTER than you. In actuality, as I have stated many many times, you are perfect within yourselves within each moment. You are accomplishing within each moment what you choose to be accomplishing in perfect alignment with your intent, and at the moment that you are not accomplishing perfectly within alignment of your intent, you shall disengage, for you shall not hold the value fulfillment within yourself within this particular dimension any longer.
I am quite understanding that many individuals hold discontentment within physical focus, creating within their individual focuses unhappiness. This also stems from your fearfulness. This is not to say that you are not continuing to be moving within your value fulfillment, but I am acknowledging that within physical focus, your experience may suggest uncomfortableness and discontentment. You may strive to be "looking for a better way," more comfort within your focus, an easement, less difficulty, less conflict, less distress. This be the reason that I speak to you so very often of no right and wrong and good and bad. These are products of your belief systems, and they are quite influencing of you.
I am not discounting of the reality of these belief systems and how they are influencing and creating of your reality, for what you feel and what you experience IS REALITY. If you are unhappy, you are unhappy. It IS your reality. It is not an illusion. It is created by your belief systems, but it is also your reality.
I do not express to you that there is no right, wrong, good, bad that you may eliminate these from your focus and your reality, but to expand your awareness that there is more beyond your belief systems. It is these belief systems that limit you and create these situations of fearfulness and unhappiness. I may also express to you that in many cases, your experiences of distress or unhappiness are also contributing to your value fulfillment, for they attain your attention. I have expressed many times: You pay very much more attention to what you view to be negative experiences than you do to what you view to be positive experiences.
Within essence non-physically, you do not hold negative. There is no positive/negative, right/wrong, good/evil. You merely are. You merely experience these elements for you hold belief systems that suggest these elements to you and influence your emotional state FOR the experience. Within your logic, express to me: Is it not logical that you would CHOOSE to be exploring elements that ARE unfamiliar to you, that you would choose to bat the dead mouse for it is unfamiliar? This be why you hold a fascination with these elements, and they attain your attention, and you pay much more attention to them than you do to joyfulness. Although joyfulness is not an element of non-physical focus either, within your belief systems it is closer to familiarity than fearfulness. (Pause)
How may you eliminate fearfulness? (To Helen) This be part two of your question! The elimination of fearfulness is trustfulness and acceptance. (The group sighs in unison) Which, you all settle into your seats presently and express within yourselves, "Ah, yes. This once again! I am quite aware that acceptance and trustfulness of self shall be eliminating of fearfulness. Let us be on with this!" (Laughter) What you do NOT acknowledge is that you may speak this to yourselves, but you do not understand yet the reality of these words. They are merely words.
In acceptance of self in truth, in trustfulness of self, there is no room for fearfulness. It is automatically eradicated; for the reason that you do not eliminate fear is that you continue to hold belief systems, you continue to reinforce your base belief system of duplicity, and you do not accept self.
I make the suggestion that you all for a time period create within you the exercise which has been offered within our early sessions, to be noticing of each time that you are discounting of self within each day. I suggest to you that you may hold amazement at how very many times, within one day of time framework, you discount yourselves and reinforce your own belief systems within duplicity, and reinforce in this your own fearfulness. Each time you are excusing yourself, each time you are apologizing for your actions or your thoughts, each time you are discounting of yourself, each time you are expressing that you may have accomplished more efficiently within that moment, or better, you are reinforcing your own belief systems of duplicity.
This is not to express to you that you strive for nothing or that you may not create movement into a wider awareness, but a wider awareness is not "better!" It is more of a remembrance and a knowing of self, more of an acceptance of self. It is NOT bettering of self. This is the belief system which is misinterpreted of widening awareness. You are not becoming better individuals. You are becoming more AWARE individuals. You are remembering self and accepting self, therefore lessening the hold of your belief systems and your fearfulness upon yourself within your physical focus.
Therefore, I express to you: also do not reinforce your belief system that your widening of awareness creates a better person, for you are not creating a better person or individual. You are creating more of an awareness and more of an acceptance within the whole of you, recognizing that all of your belief systems ARE your reality, and acceptable. How may you accept belief systems if you view certain belief systems as unacceptable? It is quite easy to be accepting belief systems that are working belief systems, but if you hold another belief system that certain belief systems are unacceptable and bad, you may never accept these belief systems, but they ARE an element of your reality and what creates your reality; therefore, what is you.
Therefore, the key to acceptance is to be accepting of ALL of your reality, be it in your belief systems, good or bad, ALL of which is your creation, which is YOU; and as you are not accepting of certain elements of your creations, your belief systems, YOU, you reinforce your element of fearfulness.
