Love, Not Fear


Two things in life have taught me how to love, not fear. One is my faith in God and the other is how animals have taught me that love attracts while fear repels. I would not want to live any other way.

Being surrounded by Divine love is comforting and eternally satisfying. Knowing that God is always near, guiding and reminding me through thoughts, synchronicities and events lets me relax and enjoy the world around me. When I am in nature, the living world calls out to remind me I am in His masterpiece. We are all but a small reminder of His Divine Spirit that walks among us every day. Each one of us was born with the Light that only He can spark within us. Knowing we all have that in common should unite us in a better world for humanity and raise our vibrations into one of the greatest blessings of His love.

Spending time in nature always makes me feel grateful, blessed and loved. As I prepare for my hike, the squirrels chatter among themselves and wait for me to fill their stash with seeds and nuts by their favorite tree. While the bark has fallen, the tree is home to life that scampers through its branches, reminding us that while it may look forlorn, there is beauty dancing all around us. The sweetest things in life remind us to look ahead and up in life so that fear falls away and leaves us exposed to the love that is within us. Let that love well up inside and enjoy all that Spirit offers.

Let love fill your life with the blessings that even you don’t realize are blessings until they are set out before you. Concentrate on happiness that lifts you higher. Reach the peak that has no end and keep climbing. Love has no end. It radiates within and then outward to share with others in harmony. While we have the choice to love or fear, fear has no love within it. Look first within yourself so you can recognize love in the world.

To know love is to know that Spirit constantly surrounds you so you can love, not fear. Amen!
