Love Or Fear As A Choice “Pay Forward” #242

Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is - Love Or Fear As A Choice. Emmet Fox tells us that we have only two feelings, love and fear, that all other feelings are one or the other. That’s not as radical as it first seemed. I know that anger and fear are twins. I can agree that all negative feelings are expressions of fear. Fear like darkness has no really of its own. Darkness is the absence of light as fear is an absence of love. I am reminded to embrace my fears and they will change their nature. They’re a fearful illusion I made up or a real problem, seeking a solution. Love is ever expanding from within out into expressions: of joy, happiness, fulfillment of the Divine union. The basic element of grace is love and God our Father is love, expressing Himself as us, through us. The Presence of Love coming into this world. To share love is to dwell within our Father and our Father within us. "Put to death...your old self with its practices and ...put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator...Clothe yourselves with compassion, humility, gentleness and Patience [Love]" Colossians 3:9-10, 12. To love is to put our energies to good use. Let the wisdom of love guide us this day in acts of loving kindness. A.As’ spiritual principles give us the tools to serve one another, and to do so is to love ourselves. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
