Let go and let God.

The correction of fear is your responsibility. When you ask for release from fear, you are implying that it is not. You should ask, instead, for help in the conditions that have brought the fear about. These conditions always entail a willingness to be separate. At that level you can help it. You are much too tolerant of mind wandering, and are passively condoning your mind’s miscreations. The particular result does not matter, but the fundamental error does. The correction is always the same. Before you choose to do anything, ask me if your choice is in accord with mine. If you are sure that it is, there will be no fear. T-2.VI.4:1-10

Anxiety disorders are the most frequently diagnosed psychiatric illness in the United States. This fact may be an indication of the spiritual poverty prevalent in the U.S. Americans misbelieving that this is a medical problem turn to doctors for medications or they use medications without physician prescription like alcohol and other street drugs, cannabis, benzodiazepines, and opioids being favorites. Jesus says in A Course In Miracles that the correction of fear is our responsibility. Asking for release from fear by things external to ourselves is usually barking up the wrong tree. The appropriate correction is turning our willfulness over to the will of God as we understand God.

In Alcoholics Anonymous it is suggested, in step three, that we make a decision to turn our willfulness over to the care and will of God.

In Unitarian Universalism we join together to affirm and promote the responsible search for truth and meaning. This responsible search takes us to an apprehension of our Transcendent Source into which we place our trust.

Today, we can release ourselves from fear by turning our willfulness over to the care and will of God. Let go and let God.
