#70 – Be brave, be wise

Episode 70 long

Fear can imprison us in so many aspects of our lives…

Perhaps worst of all, fear can prevent us from pursuing our spiritual destiny, if we allow it to do so.

It takes bravery to go against the flow of ordinary existence on Earth and open the door to Enlightenment.

This week, Chrissie Blaze shares some personal stories about overcoming fears to help inspire you in your own journey towards God-realization.

Join international bestselling author Richard Lawrence and guests to discover the wisdom of The Nine Freedoms. Richard has appeared on hundreds of radio shows around the world and is the author of 11 books including Contacts With The Gods From Space and Realize Your Inner Potential, both of which he co-authored with Master of Yoga Dr. George King – his spiritual master.

    Thanks go to Dr King, and Chrissie, Darren, and Richard.

    “There are two basic motivating forces: – Fear and Love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we love unconditionally, meaning unconditionally, we open to all that life has to offer, with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life”
    John Lennon

    “There is no illusion greater than fear”
    Lao Tzu

    “He who is not every day conquering some fear, has not learned the secret of life”
    Ralph Waldo Emerson

    “If you make yourselves sheep, the wolves will eat you”
    Benjamin Franklin

    “We have nothing to fear but fear itself”
    Franklin Delano Roosevelt – 1882 – 1945 – The four freedoms he outlined were freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear.

    Thank you Darren.

    With today’s unprecedented and rapid loss of God-given Rights and Freedoms, do you think that some people will understand and appreciate the Nine Freedoms more than ever, or for the first time?

    The American Constitution is said to be a near perfect document. It was written by the Native Americans! They know the meaning of ‘bravery’ and ‘warrior’. They live the spiritual teachings fully, and they do so every second of every day of their whole life. This becomes a habit. This is why they can and do always speak from the heart and soul with such power. We can learn from and copy these ways of being.

    “Most people do not really want freedom, because freedom involves responsibility, and most people are frightened of responsibility”
    Sigmund Freud

    “What would you do if you had no fear?”

    “It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare, it is because we do not dare that they are difficult”
    Seneca the Younger – about 4 BC – 65 AD – Philosopher

    “Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage”
    Anais Nin

    Hi Chris: Thanks for your interesting post. I always thought Thomas Jefferson was the main drafter of the American Constitution together with some of the Founding Fathers but you prompted me to do some research and found that he had many personal encounters with American Indians throughout his life. Apparently he was instrumental in shaping relations between the United States and various Indian nations so it certainly seems likely that there is a strong American Indian influence. Perhaps even some of it was inspired or even written by certain of them in cooperation with Jefferson. It is a wonderful document that seems to reverberate with the best of the Spiritual philosophy of these brave people. I have high regard for the American Indians and think their treatment – past and continuing – is tragically one of the worst blots on American history. I also really like your quotes, Chris, especially Seneca the Younger…so true!
