A Course In Miracles teaches us that we have but a single choice in every moment, we may choose either Love or Fear.
As you gaze upon the world, in every instant, which are you choosing?
Love – doesn’t “Look” like anything, rather it feels like a warm home after a restful day of doing exactly what you love most to do, and to top it all off, you have just eaten your favorite meal, not too much, not too little, but just the right amount of food in your belly, nurtured and cozy. You are surrounded by those that you most love in the world and you feel completely at peace, safe, at one with the universe, and God.
Fear – does have a look, in fact fear begins with us looking out from a pair of eyes that are separate from all others, we look upon separate people and see their differences.
Through loves eyes, there are no differences and everyone that we see reminds us of those who we love dearest of all.
How do you know if you are choosing Love or Fear?
If you question which choice you are making at any given time, just ask yourself in that moment, as you look at the driver in the car next to you, or the cashier at the store, the person on television, the person walking down the street, your neighbors, friends or co-workers. If you see them, notice their clothes, their hair, their car, if you judge their words and actions, you have chosen Fear.
If on the other hand, you Feel them, a connection to their heart, sense their potential for Love, recognize that their deepest intentions are the same a yours, Peace – Love – Harmony, and understand that whether they are aware of it consciously or not, they seek only to give and receive Love, and their words and actions do nothing to change this understanding that you have of them, you have chosen Love.
