Fear and Love...

There are, essentially, two emotions that humans feel and these are the basis for every other emotion we feel.

Those emotions are FEAR, which underpins anger, sadness, cynicism etc.

and LOVE, which underpins happiness, hope, and all things positive and life-affirming...

I travel in circles where I often feel the balance has shifted way off-centre into fear based emoting. People seem to be actively seeking out all the negative and hateful in the world and wooing sadness and anger and fear - or fear-mongering - with all their energy...

Let's redress the balance! You need to be the change you want to see. If you want to see more love and respect and generosity in the world then you have to be that love and respect and generosity (of spirit, not just chattels)...

It's kind of very simple really, you just start with a smile. Smiles are contagious, even to the person producing the smile... You take a deep breathe and then breathe out all your frustration and as you get to the end of your outbreath you gently smile...

Do this as often as you can throughout your day and before you know it, you'll actually start to FEEL the smile and the love behind the smile - and other people will feel it too...

See if this helps...



if that didn't work for you, maybe this will...
