Love and Fear
Love and Fear – the ultimate duality. Fear is not the absence of love…only the perceived absence of love. All of our actions radiate from a position of love or fear. When fear-based mindsets are not introduced, love prevails. When love prevails, actions are free from judgment. This loving atmosphere encourages us to be the best we can be, at anything, without fear of criticism…helpful suggestion, yes. Crushing critique, no.
With fear out of the equation, we are free to be who we are, at that moment; regardless of where we are. We are more inclined to look within for inspiration. We feel free to encourage our innate creativity and nurture it to blossom. We have nothing to prove; no arbitrary standards to measure up to. We remain passionate human beings…not constantly judged human doings.
Stress, the leading cause of illness, cannot get control of us when we act from a position of love. No stress means no need of low self-esteem, loneliness, depression, anger and violence. Without a lifestyle of winners and losers, we are free to be ourselves…warts and all.
We have no need to worry and stress ourselves about fitting in, being loved, winning external approval or even fear of failure. Failure is just another way of learning; the other side of the coin from success (and remember, all coins have two sides).
No one puts love in you and no one can take it away. You decide to see the glass half empty and subsequently operate from fear, or you can decide to see the glass half full and to operate from love. The choice is always yours.
True love is always unconditional and present. It is non-judgmental and supportive. It must be found within, and then is available to be shared with the rest of the world. Love is the most powerful force in the universe. The more you give it away, the more you have. Only love operates this way. Let love be your weapon of choice
