We seem to have accepted fear as part of our everyday life, as if it were natural, and yet Jesus lets us in on a long held misunderstanding: We do this to ourselves!
“All aspects of fear are untrue because they do not exist at the creative level, and therefore do not exist at all. To whatever extent you are willing to submit your beliefs to this test, to that extent are your perceptions corrected.” ~ACIM, T-1.VI.5.
The Thaw (Star Trek: Voyager, ep. 39)
Genre: Action, Adventure
Duration: 50 minutes
Director: Marvin V. Rush
Asleep and dreaming in a self-imposed, computer-controlled hibernation, an entire world is generated from the emotion of fear. There seems to be no escape for the hostages from the bizarre world of masks and games and costumes and characters. Fear seems to be in complete control.
Those who chose to sleep seem to have given their power over to fear, which it uses to perpetuate itself and all the sets and characters it has made up.
To bring about release, attempts are made to reason with, negotiate with, bargain with, and compromise with fear. They fail. Yet in the end it is discovered that fear must be directly faced and exposed as the nothingness it is before there can be release and true freedom. It is time to wake up!
