In my last post, Think Pink – How Positivity Shapes your Destiny, I talked about love being the most positive, and fear the most negative forces in our lives. Now I want to focus a little more on these emotions – love and hate – and how they influence our decisions and lives every day.
Fear and love are polar opposites. Most people claim hatred is the opposite of love, but I disagree. Fear is the root of all negative emotion. There would be no hatred without fear. As a wise little green alien told us: fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering.
Yes, I’m quoting Yoda. Whether you’re a Star Wars fan or not, you can’t deny that the truth he speaks.
Fear leads you down the wrong path, because choices made in or out of fear aren’t made out of your own inner conviction.
Love, on the other hand, leads you down the good paths, the ones right for you, the ones you were meant to tread because you are drawn down them by an inherent desire, unique and specific to you.
From now on, whenever you have a decision to make no matter how small, I want you to ask yourself: Which choice would I make out of fear? Which out of love or passion?
Go with the choice you’d make out of love. Ignore the fearful path. Always go for love.
