Spiritual Doubt

In the wake of the political sea change here in the US, the topics of fear and doubt come up a lot.  In conversations, people tell me about the changes in their lives–mostly not positive–and then become incredibly afraid.

In speaking with them more, I try to find out what it is they are afraid of.  And what they all eventually say is this:  “I’m afraid I won’t be okay”.

This is the definition of spiritual doubt.

Throughout the history of mankind, religious and spiritual traditions have written and talked at length about spiritual doubt.  But to my knowledge, none has ever distilled it down to one, simple statement.

So what’s the antidote?   The next time you feel overwhelmed by circumstances and what’s going on around you seems too much to handle, just ask yourself this question:  Will I be okay?

You may argue with yourself a bit as you finally come to the answer, but I will bet the answer is always this:  Yes, I will be okay.

And with that, you will have just overcome what spiritual leaders have been trying to teach their followers for millennia.

You will have overcome spiritual doubt.

In some sense, every fear we have is simply a dislike of ours. If we just dislike strawberry ice cream, that seems innocent enough.  We aren’t afraid that someone will make us eat strawberry ice cream ( at least I hope not). But if we have a fear of losing our home, it’s basically this
