Some Answers to Fear
An entirely fearless life may be an ideal hard to imagine. But barnacles of fear lengthening the time we take to reach desirable goals—goals such as healing and satisfying employment—can progressively be stripped away by spiritual understanding.
This understanding, found in Christian Science, answers claims of fear with confidence and effectiveness. "Science sanctions only what is supported by the unerring Principle of being," Mary Baker Eddy teaches. "Sin can do nothing: all cause and effect are in God. Fear is a belief of sensation in matter: this belief is neither maintained by Science nor supported by facts, and exists only as fable." Miscellaneous Writings, p. 93;
There's a better way of getting rid of fear—an alternative to battering mortal pessimism with mortal optimism, by manipulating human thought, by self-deception, or by whistling in the dark. We overcome anxiety as we begin to sense the underlying and under-girding elements of real being—that our real identity is in Soul, God. There we find the calmness that negates fear, clears the air of cloudy mortal arguments, and lets spiritual solutions be visible.
