Fear is the Absence of Love
A friend loaned us the book Love Without Conditions by Paul Ferrini. The following excerpt is a beautiful description of how fear is the absence of love.
“You cannot love in an unloving way. You can’t be right and attack what’s wrong. Error must be undone. And since the root of all error is fear, only undoing fear will bring correction.
Love is the only response that undoes fear.
If you don’t believe try it. Love any person or situation that evokes fear in you and the fear will disappear. This is true, not so much because love is the antidote to fear, but because fear is “the absence of love.” It therefore cannot exist whenever love is present.
Why are you afraid?
Because you believe that you are neither lovable nor capable of loving another.
That belief is the only belief that needs to be changed. All negativity in your life will fall away as you undo the simple erroneous belief about yourself.” pp. 23-24
The words above are a clear invitation for all of us to make friends with the nature of fear within us. Then we are not running ourselves in the chemistry of ancient fears that by design no longer serve.
We can honor the intelligence in fear through understanding we’re not damaged just growing. Loving ourselves is the greatest life changer there is.
Tomorrow’s full moon and lunar eclipse is a perfect time to plant the seeds of change in our lives. An eclipse always opens up a more powerful portal and initiates change.
With focus and discipline, our seeds of love will grow.
We’d love to hear from you. Please share below.
