I note a couple of thoughts pass your minds as you think a moment on this truth.
Fear is there—first, fear is there! A man by the label of J.H. Newman made an observation about this fleeting ongoing lifestream and stated:

“Fear not that life shall come to an end, but rather fear that it shall never have a beginning!”

Wisdom often comes forth in such small sentences that hold a lifetime of meaning.
As we write, it is that it appears WHAT we offer you is filled to overflow with fear and warnings, reminders of that which you allowed to happen and hopelessness in the looking back to see that you somehow slept as “time” passed and that which happened became a prison warden instead of freedom for flight and soaring joy.

Friends, your fears will lock you up if you let them. They can prevent you from tasting adventure, from experiencing new wonders. You are often terrified of unknowns and fret about what might happen if you try something new. You worry if new people will like you—if you’ll fit in and myriads of other negative pressured thoughts.
Be cautious about the unknown and remember that all things new are but “unknown mysteries”. They are not “mystical”, only a bit of mystery until you taste, feel or experience and come into knowledge. Yes the “unknown” can “getcha” if you lack wisdom to attend selves in truth and KNOWING. Do not, however, blame GOD for YOUR lack of action when you have OPPORTUNITY to learn and properly attend selves and those things which you consider your responsibility.

Perhaps a new way to look at the “fear” is that, except for the unknowing, it cannot be “fear”! Why? Because beyond the fear is ALWAYS the underlying JOY you haven’t yet discovered. You hold the keys to your own cages and you can free yourselves when you use your courage and inner strength to overcome your fears—for all the necessary instructions and lock combinations are held within your mind if you do not lock IT away in dogma and MAN’s doctrines.
Can you reconsider your “moment” now and offer some possibilities for finding a new JOY which can be discovered beneath your fear today? Can you not accept that life is but a puzzle to be solved, a grand mystery to be unfolded through seeing, hearing, and learning?

There is a book entitled Tough Times Never Last But Tough People Do! This does not say “hard
people”—it infers and states: Tough. Constantly hold in your minds: Growth is the only evidence of life.
