There is something called "grace", that is a sort of "bridge"--that no matter how fearful and deprived we are being, grace always provides a way to lift ourselves out of fear into love, should we choose it.
Fear stops and freezes. Love flows and warms. Both states are necessary to maintain a physical reality, but when the mind stops and freezes, our body follows, and before we know it, we're cowering behind the nearest shelter with eyes wide shut dreading the next moment.
Thus, by becoming a field of allowance and compassion, we de-polarize the energies as they wash up on our shores. The polarized waves of energies dissipate in the field, much like stormy ocean waves inundating a shoreline and quickly subsiding.
