    As long as

    Hello everyone,

    I'd like to ask about the meaning of the following sentence:

    You can face them at home, on Mars, on the physical, on the etheric: as long as you do not allow fear to cast its dark shadow on your soul.

    I'm a little confused with the use of "as long as". Does the sentence mean "You can face them at home, on Mars, on the physical, on the etheric only when you allow fear cat its dark shadow on your soul"?

    Thank you, philo2009.

    Do I understand correctly that the sentence implies "you do not face them if you do not allow fear cast its dark shadow on your soul"?
