Who do we know has a carefree life?
No one! Everyone has issues, some greater, some lesser. How we deal with them is learned from our parents, our extended families, our neighbors, our communities, our heritage, our religions and then our own trials and errors or successes teach us how to be in the world.
Yet there is more…a perspective that we come in with, that we are born with.
We either choose to view our life circumstances through the lenses of love or fear. These can be learned. Fear is the most prominently taught in the school of life.
If we choose Fear—
The glass is half empty. We do not trust. We rarely give of our true selves to others. We attract more fear through our innate vulnerability and anger. We feel less than and suffer through our lives.
If we choose Love—
The glass is half full. We trust that all will be well. We attract more love, peace, joy and beauty for we become the embodiment of love.
It’s not that by choosing Love, we feel more than. It’s not that we never experience fear, never have bad stuff happen to us. It’s just that by choosing love, we receive the gifts of all life events. We recognize our fear and fear in others as the absence of love. We shine the light of love into the darkness of fear and find our way through the veil. We learn our soul lessons rapidly, striving to progress, yet grateful for every opportunity—the good, the bad, and the ugly. Life doesn’t hold us down but lifts us up with opportunities to experience love everywhere.
In choosing Love, we know oneness, yet seek the Divine in everything. The Divine is Love. And the Divine is in everything we touch, everything we experience, everything we are. For We are Love.
May you always choose Love,
