Today, I am posting an article on fear and faith that I read recently and found useful, and I’ll have my commentary at the end to show how this fits in with the Garden of Eden Process.
How Love, Fear, Faith and Understanding Work Together,
Article written by David Cameron, CEO ImagesOfOne.com.
People often ask, “How do I get rid of my fears?” It is
either that or something similar to that. Fortunately, the
answer is very simple. Once you get into the answer,
everything becomes very simple, and fear lets go just like
that! Let us have a look now…
We will start by looking at these four things and their
Love comes from within. The opposite of love is no love.
Often, people have said that the opposite of love is fear,
and in an abstract way that is correct. It is correct
because, generally, you tend to have either one or the
other. When fear is absent, you feel the love that is always
there. When fear comes in, you are blinded from the love.
But, upon closer observation, you will notice that you can
have both emotions running over the same thing. So in a
direct sense, the opposite of love is no love. Love is
acceptance, so the opposite of love can also be called non-
Fear, as we have seen, is a separate emotion. Fear is false
evidence appearing real. You fear because you doubt your
capability to handle something or create a successful
outcome. Otherwise you would not fear if you did not doubt
your ability not to be touched by that which you fear. In
truth, there is nothing to fear. It may not be evident now
why this is so, or it may be. Either way, you will see it
soon. There is nothing to fear. Anyway, fear is what blocks
your feeling of love within, and with that it takes your
power away simply because power is vested in love. Force is
vested in fear and sometimes force looks like power, but it
isn’t even close in comparison and lasting effect. So now we
know that fear is what obscures love and power. The question
then remains, what gets rid of fear or what allows fear?
Well, what is the opposite of fear? It is no fear. No fear
is the opposite of fear. How do you get to no fear?
Fear comes in when faith is not there. Faith is more than
believing. Faith is closer to knowing than to believing.
When you know, you know. Its like when you go to pick up a
glass of water and drink it, you don’t doubt you will
manage. You just drink knowing it works. That is knowing. A
slight step behind knowing is faith. When you have faith,
you pretty much know you are fine, one way or another,
despite appearances to the contrary. When you have no faith,
you get fear. And that is the key to removing fear, having
faith. So how do you have faith?
With understanding. Understanding ensures faith, simply
because you know how things work. Think of a time you felt
confused and incapable because you missed the information,
and then when you got the information and understanding, you
had peace and you knew you could just easily do what you had
previously feared. Understanding of how life works, How Life
Works, is the key. Take a look under the hood of life, into
the Machinery behind Life, and with that new immense
understanding you will have automatic faith. It is a loop.
You have faith because you know how it works, and so you
have faith that it works.
And as a bonus to understanding, you have peace within
yourself and with others.
And so the first step to all these things, to having faith,
eliminating doubt and fear, to having peace, is all in
getting an understanding. Not just any understanding. Things
are in layers. There is a layer that is the foundation, a
causative layer, and a layer that is the superficial, the
effect layer that is built on the foundation. The
understanding of the causal layer is one we are talking
about here. Fortunately, there is much available to us
nowadays in terms of high-level wisdom and insights. Seek
them and understand, if you wish to have the key out of the
box. You may also have a look at the book What If You Knew
The Answer To and the Reason For Everything In Your Life
which is available at www.imagesofone.com and looks into the
completeness of the understanding we are talking about here.
I wish you success and wellbeing.

To link what David Cameron writes to our Garden of Eden process, in order to move forward, deliberately, one day at a time to become and do what the Creator intended, you have to have the faith that you can indeed become who he intends for you to become and do what he has purposed for you to do.
This faith is built as you increase your understanding of the Creator, his principles that He has provided to guide you and his destiny for your life.
As you understand that the Creator always provides enough to allow you to become all he intended, your fear of lack will cease. As you understand that the Creator is in command of the entire universe, the earth and all that is taking place, your fear of the future will diminish. As you understand how the Creator has made you unique and special for a definite purpose and has surrounded you with people to support you, your fear of being incapable will end.
But key is to understand that the God, the Creator, has placed you on his planet and is with you to enable you to accomplish this life with success and joy.
