About a week ago, my teacher and I were talking about the relationship between fear and love and she said this to me:
“Anytime you are not experiencing joy (or some other form of love), you have opened the door to fear and your ego.”
Think about that, for a minute.
Step back and look at your life.
Do you see it through a lens of joy and possibility and expansion (love)?
Or do you see it through a lens of discontent, worry, limitation, and challenge (fear)?
As you know, I’m now single and dating and that is a whooooole new world of adventure for me, after being out of the dating pool for so long.
I’ve only been actively dating for about 2 months and I caught myself starting to feel like dating is hard, and disappointing, and feeling frustrated that I hadn’t met “the one” yet.
Basically letting my ego and fears take over, instead of feeling excited about the possibilities; appreciative of the consistent number of dates and interest I’ve had, so far; and grateful for all that I’m learning about myself, along the way.
Same life. Two different realities.
Which state of being – love or fear/ego – is more conducive to my finding the partnership that I seek?
How about in your situation? Which state of being is more conducive to your success?
“Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to
recognize how good things really are.”
If you are harboring fear, instead of the peace and trust and expansiveness that comes with love, all you are going to see is what is wrong and limiting and defeating about what you are doing.
Your ego is masterful at convincing you that your life is NOT joyful and NOT abundant and NOT exactly, perfectly taking care of you at all times – despite evidence to the contrary!
Don’t believe the hype!
Refocus on all that you HAVE, all that is POSSIBLE, all that is GOOD, and the way that you are completely SAFE and always have been.
Then, if you still want to create change, you are not creating from fear and ego, but from the rich, nourishing soil of love, where joy and abundance take root.
