“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.” ~ John Lennon
Why is it easier for us to have negative feelings and negative thoughts than it is to have positive, loving thoughts, positive and loving feelings? Have you ever asked yourself this question? Is it maybe because we have created all that is negative, and it is easier for us to accept it and identify with it? We can accept insanity, hate and sorrow, but we can’t accept LOVE and compassion?
LOVE is within us, we were all born with this emotion, it was given to us, that’s all there was to be given, but as time went by we started creating a new world for ourselves, a different world, a world which is nothing more than an illusion, an illusion to keep our ego alive.
There are only two emotions in the world, only two emotions we can express, and those two emotions are FEAR and LOVE. All the other emotions with whom we are all so familiar, are nothing more than subcategories of these two. Where there is LOVE, we may have peace, joy, content, serenity, forgiveness while on the other hand, where we have hate we will have anxiety, sadness, depression, fatigue, judgment, guilt and so on. You see, where there is LOVE, fear can not survive, and where there is fear, LOVE can not survive. They can’t leave together, for only one is real, while the other is just an illusion.
Whenever we find ourselves in a situation where we might be feeling sad, depressed, angry, judgmental etc. , we need to realize that we are in fact feeling fear, a fear of something and we also have to keep in mind that fear was created by us, fear is not real, we made it up, while on the other hand, LOVE is real, LOVE is our natural state of being, that’s who we are, that’s what created us, and that’s what’s real. So why choose FEAR when you can choose LOVE? Why do it?
You see, it is all up to us. It’s a choice we make. We either choose LOVE or fear, happy or unhappy, and it’s all up to us. I know many of you will go:
