Rant on Fear and Love


Love is gentle, love is kind. There is no greater power then love.

Every moment in space and time we are constantly faced with a choice. In our minds there are several avenues that we can journey down. Sometimes our thoughts run away with us down a path of fear, judgement, criticism,  doubt, blame, jealousy, negativity. We can get so far down that road that we don't know how to find our way back.

THIS is the only battle we face in life. Because our thoughts become feelings and emotions, our thoughts become words and deeds and karma and patterns. So how do we create a new way of thinking? Our minds are little private rooms that no one else can come in and clean up. It is the ultimate test of love and forgiveness. Do you have the compassion to be kind to yourself? Are you capable of loving and forgiving yourself? Do you believe that you are worthy of love, do you believe that you are innocent?

bla bla bla You get it. The question goes unanswered. How do we create new patterns of thinking? It can start to feel like insanity. Questioning every thought. or disregarding every thought. Meditation? Is that the answer? How do we get to the root of the problem. The false beliefs, the social conditioning.

How do we go from fear to love? and consistently. God knows I bounce back and forth like a ping pong ball. One day I love myself the next I am not good enough. If I sit and think it through I realize my feelings are reflections of false belief systems. But how do we really re-train the mind in our favor?

This is the journey. The whole damn thing.

  1. Great post Sophia:)
    You are not alone..some days are better than others huh :)
    Coming into accepting my humanity, choices and thinking helped me.
    Good or bad? Its cool...the thoughts will pass soon enough...nothing is permanent after all.
    When i reflect on the days that i have self love and love for all living beings..it is the days that i keep God close. For me the key is constant conscious contact.Without putting this relationship first in my life... my thinking and actions have the ability to be off key.When i keep God close I'm in tune with myself and others... and these are the days i open myself to being love and seeing love.Life is beautiful in this place.Gods line is always open...Im the one who can sometimes drop the receiver.This is the journey my friend and all is unfolding just as it should be :)

  4. I read your post and thought of this woman I recently discovered. I don't know exactly why. Vibrational harmonics resonating in tune I suppose. She speaks with the extraordinary clarity and penetrating insight of someone who has suffered mindblowing abuse and has come through to the other side intact. What a gift suffering can be if you survive it.
