We are living in a world that is filled with marketing that triggers fear. How many times have we turned on the television to see an advertisement on how to prevent a disease and it has filled us with the thought “what if that was me?”. So, we listen to everything that is being fed to us from a place of fear and we start implementing it in our lives because we don’t want to get that disease.
What if we applied the principles/diet etc., that we were drawn to from a place of love instead? How do we do this?
Take something really simple, like applying sun screen. Why do you apply sun screen? You may have seen advertisements, read research talking about how bad UV rays are for the skin, causing skin cancer etc. So, you are applying sun screen.
Applying sun screen is the right thing to do and this can be done with Love, instead of fear. You could apply sun screen because you love yourself and you want to look after your body. Feel the fear of future leaving you. Do what you have to do with love, in this case apply sun screen out of love for yourself. When you do this, you will no longer think destructive thoughts about yourself. Life becomes more peaceful.
When we love ourselves, we do everything with kindness towards ourselves and towards others. Choosing love over fear always works wonders because this puts us in a positive frame of mind. It frees us from negative emotions, leaving us feeling love towards ourselves. What a wonderful place to be!!
