“My Higher Power is the confidence within me that makes me unafraid.” – As We Understood p.105
This quote was found at the bottom of Hope for Today, which also spoke of how the more afraid (uncomfortable, angry, etc) we are, the more we tend to try to control our environment and others around us in an attempt to get more comfortable. And of course, the more I try to control others, the more they rebel against trying to be controlled. The end result is prolonged suffering, for me and those around me. The answer is to get out of fear, into faith, and stop attempting to manage, direct and control others. One way I can do this is by taking deep breaths, imagining that I’m breathing in love, and breathing out fear. When I get out of the problem, and start living in the solution, ILML!
