The Enemy Has A Name

There is a deceptive and cunning enemy who wants to steal your freedom. It has doomed millions to self-imposed bondage. Some might know when it has them in its grip, but countless others don’t even realize this hidden power is preventing them from experiencing richer, freer and happier conditions of life.

This enemy has a name and its name is Fear. It assumes numerous disguises. It appears in various phases of your daily life. It has wrecked more careers and ruined more happiness than all the wars of history. Millions of people believe they are beyond its influence, while it silently rides on their backs and laughs at them.

Most misunderstand what fear really is. Most think of it as being afraid to meet certain people, or fearing an accident might happen to them or their loved ones. Yet there are fears of the future, fears of one’s self, fears of events, fears of natural phenomena, fears of old age, fears of poverty. And there are still more hidden, stunting fears developed by the un-religious teachings of blind, bigoted, crafty Religion.

We will explore new views of individual nature, personal fears and avenues of self-discovery. These are wholesome and uplifting, but we will also uncover more than a mere conquest of fear. You see, we are embarking on an adventure into the heart of a courageous life philosophy. We will tear away the bonds of habit, thought and action which have smothered your true inner Self.

“For all may have, if they dare choose, a glorious life.” – Herbert

Many people become distressed by their fears. You might be one of them, but rest assured that you can grow in your soul a perfect courage.

The methods to achieve perfect courage are simple and they are available to anyone. They might seem difficult at first, but they will become easier as you make them a real part of your life.

Do not say, “Be courageous.”

Do not say, “Destroy fear.”

This is common advice, but it is worthless unless you know how to do it. Our methods are definite and practical. Our methods get results. Here are three powerful methods to conquer fear.

  •  Inspiration of the Subconscious Mind. You are invited to believe, assume and realize that “I am growing in my soul a perfect courage.”
  • Elimination of Fear. This is the negative phase of our work. Specific instructions will be given to eliminate every kind of fear.
  • Development of Spiritual Courage. Understand that the word “spiritual” does not mean religious in the ordinary sense, but rather the kind of courage which is the breath and tone of the Infinite Life manifest in human life.

The Infinite Life in you is in harmony with the Infinite Life which is The Good, The Beautiful, The True, The All-Health, The Father, The Infinite Soul of this wonderful Universe in which we live. If you come to harmony with the Infinite Life, your fears will vanish because you will then share in the Courage of the Eternal Good.

There are two kinds of courage.

  • The Courage That Dares and Wins. “With a giant strive, I will charge a dragon on the field!” In these lines we have the first kind of courage. It is good, but there is another which is vastly superior.
  • The Courage That Smiles and Receives. “I am the courage of the soul, harmonic with the perfect whole.” These lines demonstrate the second kind of courage. There is none that is higher. It’s love within us made perfect, so that we may have boldness.

These are our methods. They are presented for your approval. They are stated plainly so you can move from one fear to another until your entire list is disposed of.

This is a short excerpt from the revolutionary book, Break Free: How to Conquer Fear. You deserve to own this book, absorb its message and completely eliminate fear from your life once and for all.

The only thing you stand to lose is your old way of thinking. Is that really more important than the opportunity to experience true freedom?

Break Free: How to Conquer Fear


Point of No Return

Point of No Return is the point at which a current course of action must be continued because turning back is physically impossible, prohibitively expensive or dangerous. 

Point of No Return is also referred to by pilots as the Radius of Action Formula. It originated as a technical term in air navigation to refer to the point on a flight at which, due to fuel consumption, a plane is no longer capable of returning to its airfield of original takeoff.

The Rubicon is a synonym for the Point of No Return. When Julius Caesar invaded Ancient Rome (January 10, 49 BC), he led his army across the Rubicon River in violation of law, thus making conflict inevitable.

Alea iacta est (The die is cast) is what Caesar said while crossing the Rubicon.


The Fern and the Bamboo

This world has taught you to expect instant gratification. Go to McDonalds and satisfy your hunger in a matter of minutes. Want to know the answer to a question? Go to Google and find what you’re looking for almost instantly.

What happens when things don’t work out like you plan or as quickly as you would like them to? This story might help.

There was a man who decided he was going to quit. Quit the job. Quit the relationship. Quit Spirituality. Life had become too difficult. He wanted the easy way out. He just wanted to quit everything.  He went into the woods to have one last talk with God.

“God”, he said. “Can you give me one good reason not to quit?”

God’s answer surprised him …

“Look around,” God said. “Do you see the fern and the bamboo?”

“When I planted the fern and the bamboo seeds, I took very good care of them. I gave them light. I gave them water. The fern grew quickly and its brilliant green covered the floor. Nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did not quit on the bamboo.”

“In the second year the Fern grew more vibrant and plentiful… And again, nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did not quit on the bamboo. In the third year, there was still nothing from the bamboo seed. But I would not quit.”

“Six months later, the bamboo rose to over 100 feet tall. It had spent all those years growing roots. Those roots made it strong and gave it what it needed to survive. I would not give any of my creations a challenge it could not handle.”

God then said, “Did you know, my child, that all this time you have been struggling, you have actually been growing roots? I would not quit on the bamboo. I will never quit on you. Don’t compare yourself to others.”

“The bamboo had a different purpose than the fern, but they both make the forest beautiful.”

“Your time will come,” God said. “You will rise high!”

What Do You Know About Success Magnetism?


The Hopeful Person

The hopeful person is an etheric invitation to all good influences.

  • He wills and sets in motion new forces.
  • He plans and prepares for new contingencies.
  • He believes and vibrates himself into surroundings.
  • He toils and multiplies himself into his world.
  • He attracts others to himself.
  • He wins a measure of the success for which he was endowed. He cannot pass his limits, but he can find them.

Unyielding hopefulness attracts, from the air, from the soil, from the sun, from the human world, from the universal ether, from the Infinite Universe, a thousand benevolent influences which cannot be traced to ordinary means. The attitude draws on the nature of things. Multitudes are today attesting the fact.


The Success Mood

Success is the outcome of its own mood. If you analyze the careers of successful people, you will find they have thought of themselves as successful until success has become an abiding mood of the soul.

The mood of success is a long-term mental attitude or thought-feeling of achievement. The mood of success should be held constantly in mind as you progress through The Power Within training course and in all the affairs of your life. This may be done by affirming, until it is a permanent belief and expectation of the soul:

“I am resolved on success. I shall certainly achieve success.”


Our Deepest Fear

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
Your playing small does not serve the world.

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
So that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We were all meant to shine, as children do.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine,
We unconsciously give other people permission to do the same
As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.

– Marianne Williamson
