Excerpt About Loss

Loss of Basic Confidence

So we see that will and fear are connected. The loss of basic confidence makes us block our will, which then creates a fear that without the false will we will have no support. We feel we will be vulnerable and defenseless, unsupported, groundless, with nothing under our feet. We feel our needs will just collapse under us if we let go of the false will. This might actually happen momentarily, until the true will is felt. With the true will, you do not feel as if you are being supported, you simply feel the absence of the fear and of the need for support. It feels like an openness, and emptiness, a big space in which to experience life. You feel that all kinds of possibilities are there, and no intentional action is needed. Things will just emerge out of that openness, spontaneously.
