Love is such a beautiful aspect of our human experience, why is it that so often we are too quick to push it into the background, giving “preference” to thoughts and behavior that have little to do with this awesome birthright-to remain and express from that space. So often we are judging and criticizing and living with the consequent fear, anxiety and depression. And why do we not see it as choice and within our control to change that?
Every day we are presented with myriad opportunities to choose our thoughts and actions. We have all heard the thought expressed that although we can not choose what happens, we can indeed choose how we respond to what happens.
A Course in Miracles teaches that it all comes to loving or calling out for love (coming from a state of fear). I am confident that if we remained conscious of the choice we always have, we would choose love every time.
