In every moment of you life, have you a choice to make.
Are you choosing out of love or out of fear?
Love God, love yourself, & love others OR
fear God, fear yourself and fear others.
And this choice comes down to even "insignificant" things all the way up to the major things that impact our lives.
Am I choosing to wear this because I am in fear of what people will think of me if I wear what I really want to wear? Or do I just love myself regardless of what people think, and wear what will make make happy?
Am I responding to that person's political post on Facebook in aggression and defense because of the fear of our differences? Or can I see past the "humanness" of everyone and love them more, especially because of our different opinion?
Do I live in fear that my partner is going to change his mind and put all of my worth in the success of the relationship? Or do I take advantage of every single moment I have to love him fully and know that I am full and complete regardless of the circumstances in my life?
Do I view the traditions and rules of religion as the only option to please a vengeful God whom I believe is displeased with me regardless of what I do? Or do I know and trust that the Creator of the Universe exists only as love and I desire to know Him in a way that feels empowering and nourishing to my soul?
And I can list thousands of other examples.
Just remember that in every single moment, in every conversation, with every person you come into contact with, with every challenge, with every trauma, with every victory or celebration, you have the option to respond in fear or in love.
I believe that if we desire to make a shift in our culture and our world we have to stop fighting fear with fear.
We have to step into the power that comes when we fully embody LOVE.
When we are an entity of love. When we exist as love.
Only then, can we begin to dismantle the paradigm of fear that we live in right now.
It begins with you. How can you show up as love in your life today?
Who needs an extra dose of your goodness?
Don't forget to ask the person in the mirror first.
