I live in terror all the time. I am looking into a future of overwhelming challenges. I want to believe that I can meet my challenges but deep inside I have doubts. I know its my job to work this out, but could you lend some helpful ideas to overcome this idea that I am not capable of overcoming what is now overwhelming me?
Our task -- in any and all moments, regardless of what seems to be on the horizon -- is to do what's in our power, and refuse to do what's not. Any fearful moment we see "coming" is the conflict-filled product of a mind unconscious to the fact that it has produced the very image it now fears! To see this as being true is to immediately separate yourself from both the fear and that level of self that first forms these negative images and that then tries to protect itself from its own deluded state.
