Fear in your mind produces fear in your life. This is the meaning of hell.”
Love sets the table for us to feast. Fear sets the table of scarcity. Love asks us to witness the magic and splendor. Fear asks us to witness our smallness and unworthiness. These two companions often accompany us for the journey of our lifetime. Perhaps at certain points in our lives we notice one voice more audibly in the foreground of our lives. Can we notice the voice without judgment?
I watch my own life move through these seasons of fear and love, and as winter draws near in the Northern Hemisphere, I find myself contracting inward. I desire to know these two colleagues that work together in tandem. I aspire to know what sets off my little slice of heaven, or my little slice of hell?
Love asks us to get messy and magical and lost in a sense of wonder. Fear also asks us to get trapped in the anxiety of the future or the regret of the past. Each story of our life as Marianne Williamson says, "Is either love, or a call for love."
As we move through the seasons of gratitude in our life, can we entertain that each of these emotions; love and fear has an offering for us.
