“Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learned here.”
This Halloween weekend was filled with candy, laughter and FEAR! This made me think off the two motivating forces that lead our lives, LOVE and FEAR.
In the past FEAR called all the shots in my life, “uncertainty,” was my poison. I feared not knowing what was coming. The funny thing was, I actually thought I had control of every event in my life. Not until I unveiled the illusion of FEAR that my life shifted to LOVE. It is because of LOVE that I am doing what I love to do, and not fearing my future. It’s because I have remembered my true essence, my purpose, that I am able to write this blog and hopefully inspire you. Today I want you to reflect on what force is leading your life. Is it LOVE or FEAR?
As human beings we are led by two emotions. Yes only TWO emotions! LOVE or FEAR. All the other emotions are subcategories of these two emotions. For example where there is LOVE, we may have peace, joy, content, or forgiveness. On the other hand where there is FEAR we will have sadness, depression, fatigue, judgment, anxiety, guilt and so on. Where there is LOVE, FEAR does not have a chance. These two emotions can’t live together because LOVE is real and FEAR is an illusion. We think FEAR is real, but it’s all in your head. It’s up to us to choose FEAR or LOVE, today I will show you how to choose LOVE every time!
When we have to make a decision of what emotion we want to be in LOVE or FEAR, I always ask,“Which one feels better?” Does joy, peace and love feel better than fear, judgment or anxiety? LOVE will lead your life by acknowledging that LOVE is the only thing that is real. Love is our true nature. Love is what always feels right! It is by choosing this emotion that your life will be filled with joy, contentment and peace. It is human nature for us to not want the unknown, to feel anxiety or fear. FEAR is part of our human creation, it is part of the ego. It’s that negative voice that tells you lies about who you are not! FEAR is a liar, it thinks it’s protecting you, but it’s not because it’s an illusion! You need to understand that you are the creator of your life. So, if you are living in pain, anxiety or depression FEAR is controlling your life on the other hand if you are living in peace, joy and harmony you are living in LOVE. You have decided what emotions we want to feel. Yes, you are that powerful and you need to realize that!
What should I do when FEAR pop’s up?
Whenever fear lingers in your mind you should realize it’s there, take responsibility for what you feel. Ask yourself, “Is it legitimate fear?” Is it a vital response to physical or emotional danger?” Often we fear situations that are far from life-or-death. We FEAR change because of the unknown. We won’t change a job we hate because FEAR has convinced us that we could not do any better! We stay in stagnant relationships for the same reasons. I am asking you to do it afraid! Don’t let fear control your hopes and dreams! FEAR may think it’s protecting you but it is harming your true potential it’s stopping your life’s purpose. Trust LOVE, feel the joy, peace and contentment. Go for that feeling! Let LOVE or your true essence lead your life. LOVE is the reason we are here!
The Dalai Lama said, “The more you are motivated by LOVE, the more fearless and free your actions will be.” With all my LOVE, I want to push you to be fearless so that you are free from all doubt and fear. I want to assure you that if you let LOVE in, FEAR will eventually go! Trust yourself, trust your true essence. Remember your strength is LOVE so let it conquer FEAR!
Until next Monday! BELIEVE. CHANGE. BECOME!
