All fear is past and only love is here.

W-293.1. All fear is past, because its source is gone, and all its thoughts gone with it. 2 Love remains the only present state, whose Source is here forever and forever. 3 Can the world seem bright and clear and safe and welcoming, with all my past mistakes oppressing it, and showing me distorted forms of fear? 4 Yet in the present love is obvious, and its effects apparent. 5 All the world shines in reflection of its holy light, and I perceive a world forgiven at last.

W-293.2. Father, let not Your holy world escape my sight today. 2 Nor let my ears be deaf to all the hymns of gratitude the world is singing underneath the sounds of fear. 3 There is a real world which the present holds safe from all past mistakes. 4 And I would see only this world before my eyes today.
