Do Not Be Afraid

Do not be afraid
of anger
or tribulations,
injustice,
or troubles;

do not be afraid
of honesty
or lies,
deception
or deceit;

do not be afraid
of sorrow
or grief,
despair,
or anxiety;

do not be afraid
of what was,
what has been,
what is,
or what may yet be.

Do not be afraid,
do not fear,
or worry,
do not let your heart be troubled.

That Which Is, is;
fully present,
fully here,
now and always.

In the midst
of all that is —
the joys,
the sorrows,

the suffering,
the delight,
the dreams,
the disasters —

in the midst
of all that is;
God is with us
we are never alone.
