Love or Fear – A Sunday Musing
A myth is a story created by humans. Every ‘culture of humans’ has its own explanation of what this majestic universe means. The stories give us meaning or purpose for this crazy existence with all the surrounding chaos.
Many different cultures mean many different stories. Are they all correct? Some of them? None of them?
Don’t think in terms of right or wrong. The Universe is immense. I hear birds chirping to tell me it’s morning or the sun is rising. Do I need to know why or how they know or what makes them sing? Science tells me why the sun is rising but cannot explain all.
Is it enough to know I’ve made it another morning while others did not? Can I also accept that nature directs its own show…its own reality?
Currently, there is no chaos in my reality. Just birds singing and a train whistle far, far away. That’s it.
For others, their reality will be completely different. Maybe they’re deaf and cannot hear the birds. Maybe they’re sick and only feel fear and all that fear brings with it — more fear…
All feelings and emotions arise from two places: Love or Fear.
Self-awareness allows us to discern whether we’re feeling love or fear in this very moment. Did you know our feelings can change in an instant, and we can even start our day over any time?
We don’t have bad days. We have bad moments which we allow to ruin our day, week, etc.
Where is your mind this morning? Will you start your day with love of the mysterious universe or will you choose to hide under the covers in fear of our majestic world and what it holds for you today?
