Love and fear – what do you choose?

In Insight and Experience by Darren WeissmanLeave a Comment

The real power in life is not what happens to us, but rather, how we respond to the circumstances we face – a choice between love and fear.


Love inspires us to question fear, keep our heart open, and dive into the stress that is impacting our body, relationships, and the world we share. Love is a personal choice with collective consequences. What do you choose – a life that perpetuates a struggling and suffering or one that inspires a new and fresh breath of hope, dignity, and oneness? Imagine being able to envision beyond what’s currently being seen, listen beyond what’s currently being said, and choose beyond the catastrophic consequences that we as humankind are individually and globally facing. Choosing love requires you to be courageous while you take a compassionate look in the mirror.

Let’s begin with a question. If you were given the opportunity to create your life, a day, or even a moment in time, would you choose to create it feeling helpless or hopeless to change the outcome of the ravaging effects of fear, both personally and globally?

It may seem like an obvious choice, but where to begin? Even more, you may be asking yourself, “What could I possibly do to make a difference?”

If it isn’t a choice or action, it’s a reaction

I’d like to propose a new perspective. What we know is this: what isn’t a choice or an action is a reaction. In a state of reaction we lack rational thinking, strategic planning, and creativity. When in a reactive state, the beliefs of the subconscious mind go on autopilot and take over for the way we perceive ourselves and the world and, even more, act as a magnetic attractor field bringing forward further circumstances that match the frequency of our limiting and fear-based beliefs.

We do not perceive truth in life – rather, we perceive what we believe

Beliefs are learned, and not everything that we learn is true, or, what may have been true at one point in time, may not be relevant today. To create a portal for change, it is necessary to question our beliefs and the status quo. If left unquestioned, the reactive energy and emotion that is in motion will stay in motion until met by another force. Will that force be you?

Your heart has the answer

Within your heart lies a truth. Love is the only answer to fear. What does your heart of love choose to feel? What does your heart of love choose to create? My hope is to inspire and empower you with the knowing that you can make a difference.

Judging the consequences of stressful generational and cultural patterns and limiting beliefs only further cements a reactive lens of separation and helplessness. Now is the time to come from your heart and courageously embrace what’s possible.

World peace created by individuals

Acknowledging the immeasurable value of a single person being a reflection of the whole is a positive step on our journey of creating world peace through inner peace. As the cultural anthropologist Margaret Mead famously said, “A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

As a people who share the economic resources of our water, sky, air and land we have reached a critical stage in our history: we must decide what kind of future to make for ourselves. Will it be a future that is derived from the values of fear, pessimism, greed, hunger, poverty, and war, or will it be formed from the liberating values of love, optimism, service, sustainability, abundance, and peace?
