The Choice for Love or Fear
I have been thinking about fear as I wrote about it yesterday, here is a beautiful text. At any moment we have the choice between love and fear.
The Choice for Love (by Emmanuel as told by Ram Dass)
What does the voice of fear whisper to you?
Fear speaks to you in logic and reason.
It assumes the language of love itself.
Fear tells you, "I want to make you safe."
Love says, "You are safe."
Fear says, "Give me symbols. Give me frozen images. Give me something I can rely on."
Loving truth says, "Only give me this moment."
Fear would walk you on a narrow path promising to take you where you want to go.
Love says, "Open your arms and fly with me."
Every moment of your life you are offered the opportunity to choose-
Love or fear,
To tread the earth or to soar the heavens.
