“Be not afraid, only believe.” (Mark 5: 36)
The productive way to spend our time and to occupy thought is not with worry and fear. This state of mind is never going to get us answers or clarity or peace. Fear is not safety, but danger in that it keeps thought dwelling on trouble, the lying suggestions of error, and that noise can drown out that sweet and tender and healing voice of Truth ready to save us.
Jesus reminded those who yearned for healing to “only believe.” He not only encouraged this trusting state of mind, he stressed the simplicity of it. “Only believe.” Just do it. Our worry-free release to faith in good is not a stretch or a big demand. It need not be accompanied by a lot of discussion, analysis, or justification. It is a natural surrender to peace.
Don’t fear. Believe. Do what you really want to do anyway—expect and accept goodness, the light, the Truth, a healing wash of Love’s answers of peace to the mind and to the body. Worry never got anyone into heaven, harmony. Fear isn’t a productive motivator because the shaky thought makes for shaky, unstable solutions. We can claim that peace that simply, naturally trusts, that abides in a hope and that expects good. That calm faith is never far from us and its acceptance dissolves fear and shows us our ready and plentiful blessings.
