Fearless Consciousness

Keep walking though there’s no place to get to. Don’t try to see through the distances. That’s not for human beings. Move within, But don’t move the way fear makes you move. Walk to the well. Turn as the earth and the moon turn, circling what they love. Whatever circles comes from the center.

Rumi’s poetry is timeless. He lived over 700 years ago, but his thoughts are 21st century thoughts. Rumi understood that the inner self is fearless. He also knew that contradictory beliefs create fear. Unassimilated and fearful beliefs adopt a life of their own, and they dominate certain areas of our reality. Being human is a journey through a particular area of consciousness. That journey is a melting pot of choices, perceptions and probabilities. We stir that pot using the brain. The brain is spoon-fed by the conscious mind, and it deals with the time lapses implied by our sensual perception.

Rumi believed that the inner self functions without time and space. The inner self is our fearless consciousness. It guides us through this area of consciousness and never leaves its area of consciousness. It interacts with the conscious mind as well as other areas of consciousness. The inner self is the catalyst that instigates the fulfillment of our deeper purpose as we experience our journey. We interpret those pulsations using our belief structure. We act out our beliefs, and move in and out of fear in order to sense the purpose of our inner self.

When we sense that purpose, the earth and the moon turn as we turn. All energy turns to the music of the fearless inner self.
