Fear and Love
Life has a weird way of confirming what you’ve been feeling. I was at a coffee shop on a Saturday thinking about fear and love. I can be a very fearful person that sees the world through a fearful perspective. I took time to compare my view of the world and what kind of world that I wanted. There were vast differences, and I realized that what I believed about the world around me became my world. It didn’t matter what I wanted because what I believed was that the world was unfriendly.
The next day I was watching Wayne Dyer and he brought up fear and love. He spoke about how love cannot exist when you are constantly fearing. We have two primary emotions to choose from: fear and love. When we are feeling anxious or fearful we have left love. Fear breeds insecurity, anger, instability, and the constant need for validation. Fear keeps us from experiencing life. Fear keeps us stuck.
This is a short entry but I’m learning how powerful both emotions are. Everything that I want for my world is possible to achieve when coming from a place of love. When my default is fear my world seems a lot more complicated and cold.
We need to believe that we are good enough. We need to believe that there is an abundance of good things waiting for us. Choosing love opens up our world and choosing fear constricts the flow of what could be. Fear destroys while love uplifts. I know it’s not easy to choose love. Love means letting go of a lot of lies that we’ve made about the world and ourselves. Love means exposing our true selves and going after the life we want. It’s scary but it’s worth it.
