Seventh of an eight-part series
This is the seventh in a series of eight articles based on The Eight Principles of Inner Peace as channeled by the Light Collective through renowned intuitive Kathryn Harwig. These principles are simple, yet profound, and they apply to all beings in the cosmos. The essence of all eight principles is inner peace, and personal empowerment – the powerful ability of humans to create the world of their choosing.
Principle Six tells us there are two basic emotions: love and fear. Principle Seven tells us to Choose Love. The Light Collective explains why we should choose love: “Love is a more efficient tool. Not because it is good, not because God wants you to love, it is because it is efficient and more likely to create what you have thought. It is a scientific principle.”
The most important thing about choosing love is the word “choose.” You have control of your emotions. Every emotion is your choice. Every one.
We learn from the Light Collective that even in the most extreme cases, we have a choice of acting out of fear or love: “But then you will say to us ‘Light Collective, if I am seeing a car heading toward me, and I feel fear, is that a choice?’ And we would say to you, ‘Yes, it is a choice after approximately one or two of your seconds.’ First you would feel a fear, perhaps feeling startled, and you would not be able to think. Fear will stop you from thinking, but we assure you that in short order you will think, for you cannot not think. And when you do, you have a choice of feeling a fear-based emotion – “I am going to be hit by a car and I am so afraid” – or a love-based emotion – “I am going to be hit by a car and I should get out of the way, and it would be good for me to do so.”
Sometimes it’s not clear whether an emotion we are feeling is based on love or fear. To determine which it is, we may have to ask ourselves why we are feeling that emotion. For example, let’s say you want to compete in a race. Is feeling competitive a love-based or a fear-based emotion? It depends. Ask yourself, “Why do I want to compete? Is it because I’m afraid that I won’t be able to do as well as the others and I’m trying to prove myself?” If so, you are feeling fear. “Or is it because I have a strong body and wish to do the very best that I can?” If so, you are feeling love.
How you define things becomes your reality. It is very tempting as human beings to judge things as good or bad, right or wrong. Things are not good or bad – things are fear or love. The world will make more sense to you if you stop seeing situations and people as “good or bad” and start recognizing them as fear based or love based. When you are tempted to judge, ask, “Will this aid me to judge, or will it aid me to accept what is?”
The Light Collective says: “In any and all situations, you can say to yourself, ‘What emotion, what action can I take which will enhance my joy?’ You have come into this society – every one of you – with the capability of joy, and it is your primary mission to live in a joyful state, because as you live in a joyful state, all others can emulate you. Joy and love are the solution to your planet’s woes.”
