The portal of fear
Some will tell you that fear is the opposite of love. And
in this teaching the war begins.
But love has no opposite, for it is whole and without
division. Love is the field in which all form comes and goes, including the
temporary, wavelike appearance of fear. It is the vast, tender space in which
all emotions, feelings, and physical sensations arise, play in light and dark,
and then dissolve.
Just like passing clouds could never taint the purity of
the sky, the temporary dance of fear could never stain the majesty of what you
Enter inside fear and practice intimacy with the feelings,
the emotions, and the tender, achy sensations that are arising for integration.
Something very pure is longing to be touched, held, and allowed back into the
vastness. When fully met and sanctuary is provided, fear is able to reveal
itself, like all other form, as none other than love in disguise.
There is raw life coursing through you, taking whatever
form it must to open you into the mystery. Even fear, when no longer feared,
appears as it is, as a portal into the luminous.
If you will take even your fear as a lover, new life will
emerge from this union. You need no longer practice a spirituality of aggression.
Fear is not the opposite of love, for love has no opposite.
