All of us could stand to learn more about love. Love is a verb. Love is an action. Love is a feeling, an emotion. There are so many misconceptions about love. It is believed by a lot of people that it is just there. That you don’t have to understand it. You don’t have to know what it is, it just exists. People go out of their way to avoid love. They even deny the existence of love. However, love is within us. We were created to love and so it is there at all times. But if you don’t know how to recognize it, if you don’t know how to set it free, or express it, then it really doesn’t matter if it’s there or not. Through fear, or past situations, or even worries of what the future will hold, there are a lot of negative emotions that can actually hold us back from expressing love. But maybe you hadn’t realized that fear (sadly) rules most of how you think, speak and act. It has been, but it is time to kick fear out the door and to experience greater love!
David Richo, psychotherapist, teacher, workshop leader and writer, is quoted in saying “Hope grows from welcoming our positive shadow, since hope is about believing in the potential in us for a life that is greater than the one our frightened and limited ego has designed, a wisdom larger than our thinking mind can muster, and a love that is wider than that with which we embrace our immediate circle of friends.”
Let’s just look at “believing in the potential in us for a life that is greater than the one our frightened limited egos have designed.” Why would our egos (or our minds) be frightened? You have probably seen me address ego in other writings before – or heard me talk about it. The more you hear me talk about ego, the more you can reflect on it and see that it feeds off of fear. Ego feeds off of fear. The more you start to witness that, the more you will see that it is true. Then, through that realization, you should be able to step out of the fear and limiting perceptions in your mind (in your ego), and step into hope and the unlimited potential that exists in all of us. We each have a unique gift, but we will not know what it is until we step out of fear and pursue our full potential…and experience great love.
