“All human actions are motivated at their deepest level by two emotions –

Fear or Love.

In truth there are only two emotions – only two words in the language of the soul….

Fear wraps our bodies in clothing, love allows us to stand naked.

Fear clings to and clutches all that we have, love gives all that we have away.

Fear holds close, love holds dear.

Fear grasps, love lets go.

Fear rankles, love soothes.

Fear attacks, love amends.”

– Neale Donald Walsch

The above passage just blows me away. Thinking about our decisions through the lens of it is a powerful thing.

To stop and think…

“What is motivating me right now?

Is it fear or is it love?”

Fear grasps, love lets go…
