    Perspective for sure. It changes. But I’d rather see this as an and not an or. I’d prefer to be a big enough container to hold many emotions. They all have their usefulness. I would have pushed fear away in the past. It only comes back stronger. I still do it but I can let it be there now, along with love and whatever else chooses to come visit.

    Oh how short lived are those moments when I come on purpose from a place of love. Usually after my morning meditation I feel open hearted, and able to greet my daughter with a smile before the routine of giving her the dose of morning meds and refilling her hot water bottle so she can go back to sleep for a while. It sets a tone for the rest of the day but it doesn’t last. I notice I am trying to please her, make her feel comfortable, happy regardless of my own tiredness or resentments or worries. Is that love or just a manipulation to make things easier for myself?

      Very much sounds like parenting and mothering to me, also, Karolina.

    I do let fear make too many decisions for me. I am not wholly happy with my job, but allow fear to keep me from voicing my concerns to my boss or seeking other employment. I have family members who are down on their luck staying with me, and they sometimes cause me a lot of stress, but I am too afraid of hurting their feelings to tell them, with love, how I need them to be more helpful and responsible

      That is such a hard place to be and I can relate too well. It takes courage to speak up at home when you need help from others who don’t seem to recognize the effects of their presence or behaviors. Perhaps letting them know you’d like to call a family meeting and order in pizza to share. During the dinner you let them know in a loving tone of voice what your concerns have been and how they can help you. My heart goes out to you. As for changing jobs that is a big one for many. But one thing at a time, maybe the home situation first. I send you my blessings that it will smooth out for you.

    When I live from a place of Love I am able to face fear with more courage and trust.

    When I live from a place of love, rather than fear, I let go of my anger against others; I appreciate my own positive qualities more; I act kindly towards others; my need to be perfect dissipates; and I experience heaven on earth.

    Living from a place of love and not fear
    Is like opening a window and breathing in wonder and possibility. It is expansive and inclusive. There is no judgement of others choices only my own. When I can see my own choices and thoughts as fear based I can put them in the light and experience a renewal of my mind ….. and there is peace within.

    Every moment is filled with joy and my head and heart are very clear, or uncluttered. That state allows me to move forward without the fear of making mistakes in my decisions and interactions with others. Usually happens following deep living-kindness meditation. What a beautiful state of being! 🙂

    Everything! The invitation and challenge is to be aware of when/ as I am contracted in a place of fear, to pause, reconnect, re-root and to begin again from a place of love ….

    I can slow down and breathe. I stopped reading all the news all the time, too. I was always afraid, while reading it and afterwards. There is a lot of good news in the world today if we can focus on it, and most of it doesn’t appear in the daily newspapers.

      So, so true, Linda. I try to be mindful of how much media I consume, and make it a point to be engaged with healthy, life-affirming, spirit-centered (not religious) sources of audio, print and screen-based media that feeds the heart and soul.

      I too have given up my “addiction” to the news Linda. It filled me with fear. It is fear porn! I feel so much better. There is lots of good news everywhere. Have a blessed day.🙏❤️

    When I live in a place of love, I m able to live in a higher vibration. Attracting the abundance that I desire.

    I’m becoming a better Granny! Instead of focusing in my perceived inadequacies and having a distressed look on my face, I simply smile happily at my wonderful granddaughters, and they respond with happy interactions 😃 😄 😀 = 2 granddaughters + me
