Clearing away doubt and fear

I am looking out my study window and can clearly see the snow-capped Olympic Mountains. How beautiful they are as they reflect the morning sun. Frequently, however, as I look toward the mountains, I can't see them because of the heavy mist, but I know they are there. When the sun melts away the mist, I can see them as bright and beautiful as ever.

When looking at the mist hiding the mountains, I often think of how doubt and fear would blur and obscure spiritual vision and hide Truth, God, eternal substance, from thought. This mental darkness, or cloudiness of thought, is a form of mesmerism, in which sickness, pain or discord seems real. But the mist of doubt or fear cannot destroy Truth, which is always present; the light of Truth dispels darkness.
