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.
