In fearlessness and love I spend today.
The choice is ours between fear and love in how we spend our day. Could it be that simple? Is it easier said than done? Is today’s lesson merely wishful thinking that does not correspond to reality?
We cannot control the external circumstances of our lives but we can always control our response to them. In that distinction there lies the awareness of our choice. Can we decide to make the best of a bad situation? Can we get things in perspective and find a more positive view?
In Alcoholic Anonymous it is suggested, in step eleven, that we seek to improve our conscious contact with God through prayer and meditation. How about trying that?
In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning and where are we to find this truth and meaning: in fear or in Love? The Universalists are clear in their answer, in Love.
Today, it is suggested that we repeat this mantra often, “In fearlessness and love I spend today.” Say it especially when fear, anger, resentment, guilt starts to arise into our awareness. At that point we can make a choice. Which will I choose? The Beatles said it best when they sang, “Love, love, love, love is all there is.”
