Love and Fear

We need to become aware of where we are coming from – be it fear or love in all our expressions. When we are coming from fear and are not aware of it, the fear is much more powerful. When we come from fear but are aware of it, we lessen its impact since awareness gives us choice and enables courage from the soul to enter into the expression. Awareness of the negative always enables us to choose differently.

When we are coming from love and are not conscious of it, the love will be weak or conditional, dictated by personality factors. When we consciously choose love we make a choice for soul and its essence which is unconditional love. This consciousness makes our love not only unconditional, but very powerful.

All of our expressions, no matter what they are, are imbued with either fear or love. Let us frequently ask ourselves: where am I coming from?

When we are in fear we try to control everything, while at the same time becoming defensive. These are survival strategies which are triggered in the more primitive part of the brain. At the same time that this is occurring we are unavailable for loving connection.

Control and trust are antitheses. They have an inverse relationship to each other. As you increase the one, the other decreases. When you are in a controlling mode, you likely have fear that you are not dealing with consciously. Part of effectively transforming our fear is choosing love and giving that energy. This requires trust, one of the most significant soul energies. Trust is, in fact, the bridge in consciousness between personality and soul, and the foundation for the integration of the two.

As we age we unconsciously try to control more and more. We do this by not being open to change and by allowing our habits and past patterns to dictate. This way of approaching our life keeps us in fear because it is survival oriented, and is in fact enhancing the death process. Whenever we opt for the past instead of the present we restrict the life energy from permeating our personal life. Letting go of control allows love to flow more freely. Love vitalizes while fear de-vitalizes.

Control shifts identity into a fearful stance within the personality. Trust shifts identity into a loving stance within the parameters of soul.

Only when we are aware of where we are coming from and make a conscious choice to let go of fear and controlling are we able to trust enough to love and to live more fully.

Exercise:

Notice when you are controlling. Reflect on what you are afraid of when you do this. In a reflective, meditative state imagine yourself letting go of control and trust that the intelligent, powerful and loving nature of life, of the soul within, will support you. Imagine yourself acting with the freedom that this conviction brings.
