Choose doom and gloom, or what makes your heart zoom,
Choose fear and dread, or the joy that catapults you out of bed.
Choose to stay silent and mute, or perhaps it is time to speak your truth.
Choose you will ready or not, some do it consciously or some by slight,
Choose that which adds to the darkness or that which adds to the light.
When I prepare for my presentations, I always think about what it is that I want to learn. And, generally I teach what I want to understand better. Knowing that I want to raise the positive vibes all around me, giving love is a topic that keeps coming up. Understanding full well that life is made up of choices, I can focus on love or fear. And, if I embody love, then I know that it will permeate my experience as I move forward on the path.
I get to prioritize with great focus on what is important to me. I get to place my energy on those things that empower. And in contrast, I turn away from those things that drain. So can you. If learning to love more is what we strive for, we will decide to teach the many ways to become the channel of that we so desire. Simply put, to create a reality of love, peace and understanding, we must act with love, peace and understanding.
The highest form of love you can give to yourself is to set fear aside. Pope John Paul II articulated that, “Have no fear of moving into the unknown. Simply step out fearlessly knowing that I am with you, therefore no harm can befall you; all is very, very well. Do this in complete faith and confidence.” And, with these words of wisdom, each day is an opportunity to walk in faith that all is well. Moreover, each day you get a chance to walk in confidence to experience joy, make your heart zoom, speak your truth, and bring more light. Do not miss the opportunity!
In order to shine in the darkness, as a beacon of hope for others, it is time for love. Lao Tzu said so eloquently, “Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving deeply gives you courage.” Warriors of the light, start to love yourself and others deeply. This is the only way that the great illusion will start to change for the better. Fear has no hold on you if you do not give in. Step boldly today in a loving way. Take action to accelerate your creation of more good, and together we can learn and teach each other how to become more amazing!
