Love comes from your heart. Faith comes from your soul. When love and faith unite for humanity, a return to kindness naturally surfaces. Creating a healing force, an invisible strength.
To create peace and end violence we must extend our family-love to include all children. This even inculdes adults who act lost children thinking only of themselves and greed.
We are all related and part of the whole. All children need us to give guidance, teach love, have compassion and mentor on being kind. This is where the popular phrase “It takes a village to raise a child” stems from. It takes you and I together to end violence, greed and return to love. Everyone, young, old, handicap and abused, desires love.
Judgment can cast a wall on the heart, love like a flame burning on a candle gets blown out. Judgment is simply a habit longing to be broken, as every time we judge another there is a strong chance that we are looking in a mirror. There just might be something in the person we are judging that we see or are afraid of in us. Here is a list of top things that many people see or are afraid of: 1. Being loved, 2. Being worthy, 3. Being good enough, 4. Being liked or accepted, 5. Feeling safe and having enough, 6. Fear of loss, 6. Fear of being found out, 7 Fear of being great or successful.
The other mistake in judgment is: History shows us that what seemed to be real at the time – proved to have more to the story as time goes by.
The message we as a society can feel today is watch out for danger. Fear breeds fear. Fear can make a school zone a war zone, same with a town or a country. How can we change fear to love? How do you squeeze lemons into lemonade? Attitude is seven times greater than knowledge and skill according to the Stanford Research Institute, which claimed success, is 88% attitude and 12% knowledge and skill.
H.D.Thoreau and F.D. Roosevelt both remind us, “There is nothing to fear but fear itself”
‘Where do we go from a world of insanity? Somewhere on the other side of despair?”-T.S. Eliot
Fear is a wake-up call, a shout for love. Now that we are awake, let us not be afraid….for there is an answer. Where there is a will there is a way. Joanna Rogers Macy wrote in her book, Despair and Personal Power in the Nuclear Age, “Every system – be it a cell, a tree, a mind, – is like a transformer, changing the very stuff that flows through it.” We can transform the fear of the future into the power of love.
“We are what we think. All that we are arises out of our thoughts. With our thoughts we create the world.” –The Buddha
Fear is a natural emotion, an instinct guiding us to pay attention. Once we are aware, we can turn fear into a reminder that we are not victims of the world, powerless, we are powerful beyond measure. It all starts with perception. When we see with eyes of supporting love, goodwill and desiring peace, we find answers and attract what we are looking for.
Affirmations are a welcoming of new energy being released into the universe. They are prayer in action. Affirmations have proved to be a great tool for assisting great change.
Here are 6 affirmations I leave you with.
1. Today I will look for the good. I will see the beauty in life. As I remember my goodness, I see the good in others. We are all angels in apprenticeship, doing the best that we can.
2. Today I will turn fear into love. We all deserve love and kindness. We are creative, spiritual beings, worthy and precious to the world. Everyday in everyway more joy is coming into our world.
3. I open my heart to gratefulness. I look at all I have to be grateful for.
4. I trust life and accept life, knowing there is more to life than I can see. I believe in my family, my community, my dreams, my hopes, my work, and myself and I know this belief will be richly rewarded and increase love.
5. Forgiveness is flowing through me, releasing any blocks of fear or tension in my body and my life. The more I forgive others, and myself, the better I feel.
6. I am never alone. I am protected and supplied.
“Are people affecting the world of reality that they see?” ….you betcha! From Fred Alan Wolf, PhD. The Little Book of Bleeps.
Gregg Braden, world-renowned author, inspired speaker and trainer says it takes only 8,000 people to change our world – to enhance the economy, create peace. May we all join in creating the world we want to see. Vision is the art of seeing invisible things turn into visible things.
I send all of you love and many blessings, Coach Louise Rouse
