All You Need Is Love
There are two basic motivating forces: Fear and Love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life. ~John Lennon~
Every improper behavior, every wrong choice, and every perceived lack can always be traced back to a root of fear. It is only in recognizing this fact, and actively seeking to process and deal with those fears, that we can truly come to love ourselves and others unconditionally...and, become the conscious creators of the life experience that we dream of. What are you afraid of? When everything is boiled down, all that will remain, IS love!
Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily. It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God's love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong]. It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail. Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening]. Love never fails [never fades out or becomes obsolete or comes to an end]... ~1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (Amp)~ Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God. But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love. ~1 John 4:7-8 (NLT)~ So we can say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper, so I will have no fear. What can mere people do to me?" ~Hebrews 13:6 (NLT)~
