Don't Resist. Fight.

There has never been a better time to seek freedom. Look into it. Look bravely into the heart of that the thing that holds you back. If you have faith, in anything, I can't see a better use of it than generating the will to take the steps available to you, using your own intention and sweat, to break the chains, as well as the humility to bless your friends by leaning on them. It's gotta happen in your heart home, an energy source so central that you have it well fortified. Too well fortified.

This is a strange, exciting time to be alive. Not many of you can appreciate that, because you're beset with fiercely guarded confusion, stressors, or complexes that are, in most cases, treatable. I'm not necessarily talking about therapy, let alone drugs. Even a person alone can make considerable progress. It's about facing it. Once you have done this, you'll find that you can deal more effectively with your other circumstances. This is because you simply have access to the mental energy you once used running and hiding from that thing that seems to get the best of you.

A mature analysis of this society shows that its problems are mental, and until someone comes up with a way to heal all of you in one fell swoop, you're going to have to be brave. And help others be brave. Virtually everybody is suffering, and much of your suffering will subside as you take that step, or step leading to that step, with honesty and intention. And, when the children can see you taking responsibility for the vibration you contribute to this collective, they won't forget it. You can do it. I'll help you. I have faith in you.

Don't face it like a death sentence, with fear. Face it with love, treating the fearful part of you like a child going to school for the first time. Be tender and patient, the way I am with you. Imagine it, and put emotional energy into that vision.  Now, you're the one being loved...now, giving love... now both... Is that an unreasonable thing to put in your head, that you should see in your mind yourself being treated with tenderness and patience? It is in this context, once fortified with practice, that you'll find the safe place - and the strength - to face what you thought you couldn't. Don't resist.
