Dear Friends: In
our living experience, from time to time, we all face
a storm of one kind or another. It may be that we are about to face
financial ruin, it could be that a long-term relationship is falling
apart, or we may have a very serious illness which threatens our very
life, and so we are afraid. Forgetting for a moment the truth of our
being, we are tossed about, in a panic – just what will we do?
Above this storm, over the troubled waters of these fearful thoughts, our own Christ Consciousness within us is saying, “It is
I, be not afraid.”
who face financial ruin, cannot come up with a human solution. Every
door seems to close; every avenue of income is cut off. Where will we
turn? We are about to go under, and yet Christ says, “It is I, be
where this picture is, right where there is a human being struggling
for survival, something called “I” is telling you to let go: “Let
go, I am here, stop working on the problem. Come up higher. There is
no need to fear, I am here and I in the midst of thee am Christ. I in
the midst of thee am God, Itself”
And so this is God living Itself
right here. God, “I” am right here and God is sustaining and
maintaining Its Life. You are looking at “I”, be not afraid. Do
not lift a hand and do not lift a mental sword either, “Stand ye
still”, and see the salvation of “I”. “I will restore the
lost years that the locusts hath eaten.” “It is I, be not
afraid.” Just rest, live life as a beholder. Be a beholder as I
live My Life. “It is I, be not afraid.”
have come that you might have Life and Life more abundantly. “ You
do not have to earn My Life; in fact you could never earn My Life. I
have freely given My Life through Grace. And so develop the habit now of
dropping this problem and standing still and being a witness to “I”
as I live My Life. “It is I, be not afraid.”
you are in a relationship that seems to be falling apart and the
harder you work on it the worse it gets, and the more you give to
that person the more they seem to want to take, until you are just
worn out from trying to hold that relationship together. “It is I,
be not afraid.” You are focused on the waves; you are focused on
the wind. “God is not in the whirlwind.” Stop focusing on the
storm. God is in “the still, small voice.” You are seeing ‘many’
where there is only One. There is only one and “I” am that One.
“It is I, be not afraid.”
Know now that “I will never leave you nor forsake you” – never!
I am always right here, “closer than breathing nearer than hands
and feet.” It is because you thought you had a life of your own to
live that you have run into this storm. But remember what “I” say
to the storm; I say, “Peace, be still.” Now let your mind rest.
Step out of the judgments for a little while, step out of the
whirling mind and rest. “It is I, be not afraid.” God is
maintaining and sustaining this life called “I”. And I have an
infinite number of faces. Yet, it is I. Where that other person
appears to be, where you appear to be, there is One Life, and I am
that Life. I will always be here.
Start watching and observing as I
give you My Love. Truly I say to you that My Love will express to you
in an infinite number of ways and through an infinite number of
beings, yet it will always be I, the One being expressing Love to
you who have an illness and who have struggled trying to overcome it,
while perhaps the medication is no longer working and although you
have been to several experts, nothing seems to help. Maybe you
have even tried positive thinking – affirmations and denials. You have
worked diligently to get better, yet you remain ill. Listen to Me.
“It is I, be not afraid.”
trying to patch up a personal life, there is none. Healing doesn’t
come from working on a personal life, healing comes “in Christ”.
There is no healing from,
there is no freedom from.
There is freedom in I.
“Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” Stop
struggling. The harder you struggle on the waves that are tossing and
turning you, the more you go down under. So stop. “Stretch forth
your hand” and take the hand of “I”. I will lift you above
these waters. “It is I, be not afraid.” Learn to rest inside.
“Cease ye from man whose breath is in his nostril.” Let it go.
Stop working on it. Make it your job to be a witness, a beholder, as
I live My Life. “It is I, be not afraid.”
the face of danger, learn to withdraw all judgment and realize that
whatever is real, is God maintained and God sustained. Whatever is
real is of God and it is permanent and eternal. You do not have to
lift even a finger to save it or preserve it. You do not have to do
anything abut it. You merely have to behold God in action. You must
sit, not in judgment, but completely without judgment of any kind; in
the realization that this is God’s Universe. “It is I, be not
We must learn to be witnesses, beholders, standing a little to the side,
reminding ourselves if necessary a hundred times a day, “There is
no personal life here. I do not have to put anything together at all.

God unfolds Itself as my life. God unfolds Itself as my supply. God
unfolds Itself as my companionship. And God unfolds Itself as my
being, as my mind and as my body.
are making the transition from man of earth to the “one who has his
being in Christ“and Christ in us. There is nowhere you can go in
heaven or on earthy and get outside of I. I am infinite, eternal and
I am you. Let the mind be still, let the senses slow down and walk,
walk without seeking. I will reveal myself and My Life as you. "It is I, be not afraid."
I will dissolve that which you tried to put together and patch up. I
will dissolve the futility and the frustration, the anger and the
pain, the broken promises and the sorrow, the hurts and the
hopelessness, the fear and the panic. I will dissolve all of that, only “drop your burdens at My feet”. I can do nothing if you
insist on solving them yourself. Drop your burdens at My feet and you
will find “My Peace”. “My Peace I give unto you, not as the world
giveth, giveth I unto you. This is an Eternal Peace. This is an
Eternal Relationship with God - you as the witness, and I as the
“It is I, be not afraid.”
