Fear and Create

woman with arms raised at sunsetI ran across a little thought and wanted to see what we can do with it.

That thought is actually a quote is from the course in miracles and for all fast readers of this course here is the location of the quote: T-9.I.13.5 as well as the quote itself …

“As long as you believe that fear is possible, you will not create.”

When I first read this I was about to read right past it because it is kind of self-evident, right?

But then it struck me that it must be possible to also make the conclusion the other way: if a creation I intend to make does not work, does that imply that I have fear?

And I had to answer that with a resounding YES!

In other words, I found myself a nice experiment with which I can easily and, without fail, evaluate my fear level. I wanted to know if I am fear-free in an area – just create something and see if it comes to be.

If not, then back to the drawing board, so to speak.

Just the viewpoint alone of using a “failure to create something” to measure remaining fear brings such a nice exterior viewpoint which makes creating a lot easier and nicer.
