Today belongs to love. Let me not fear.
A Course in Miracles teaches “The opposite of love is fear, but what is all-encompassing can have no opposite.” In our contemporary society people rarely use the word “fear” any more. They use the word “anxiety” instead. “Anxiety” disorders are the most frequently diagnosed in psychiatry. Why do you suppose that is?
In Alcoholic Anonymous, it is suggested in step eleven that we improve our conscious contact with God, our Higher Power. Were we to do this would it reduce our fear?
In Unitarian Universalism we join together to affirm and promote a love for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part. Understanding this big picture, what is there to fear?
Today, we remind ourselves when we are feeling anxious the antidote is Love.
