With everything going on in the world today it can be easy to shut down and let fear take over. The problem is that when you let your decisions come from a place of fear, love tends to get pushed out of the way.
We resist offering a helping hand, telling someone how much they mean to us or standing up for what we believe in because we are worried we will be misunderstood, rebuffed or hurt.
Our ego convinces us to play it safe and stay in our own little bubble, in our comfort zone.
There are a lot of things we have no control over, but we can make the conscious decision to not let fear hold us back. Because those little acts of love add up, and the world will always be a better place when we honour every impulse of love.
“If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. … We need not wait to see what others do.”
Whenever fear starts to take over, try out this quick guided meditation to open you heart to the love all around you.
