Inspirational, Spiritual & Metaphysical Quotes From The Discourses Of JJ Dewey
1 That old enemy fear keeps many from moving toward the light of truth.
2 If all fears are related to a fear of loss, then this fear of loss is the primal fear that keeps us from all truth.
3 Fear of rejection in some form is probably the second most common fear related to loss.
4 When one person in a group discovers a new truth that is not accepted by the others, there will indeed be a loss and if that possibility of loss is not accepted by the seeker, a fear will indeed surface.
5 Perhaps the greatest overriding fear of one approaching the straight and narrow path between the two extremes of error, is the fear of hell, the fear of God’s wrath, the fear of being wrong or guilty before God, the fear of losing one’s soul or eternal life.

8 The typical New Ager is a little like Luke in Star Wars who thought he had everything down. The initiate is like Yoda who knows of the realities to come and tells him “…you shall fear.”
9 Many go through numerous lifetimes with this non-fear belief until they encounter the Dweller on the Threshold. This dweller is terrifying enough, yet to destroy this Dweller one must face the Angel of the Presence which is even more terrifying because this, once encountered, is of such power that it will feel like you could be destroyed body mind and spirit with a blink of an eye. Moses had to spend 40 years in contemplation of the presence before he mustered the courage to face it.

16 This portrayal of fear by many teachers of the day, as a thing held only by the deluded, the unloving, the unevolved or the ignorant, has led many into great illusion. Because many seekers have swallowed this pleasant sounding doctrine without processing it through the mind they enter into a world of deception and denial.
17 That fear which is denied or suppressed does not go away. Instead it foments and grows and when it resurfaces it will loom greater than it was at the moment of burial.

21 Fear of being worthy is a big hurdle for many.
22 Fear is a huge barrier to soul contact, but I submit that there is another barrier much larger, one that you will not see written about in New Age philosophy that I know of.
