Love is Letting Go of Fear (Quotes)

~  …our satisfactions are highly transitory.  Even with those people who are close to us we often have love/hate relationships.  These are relationships in which we feel a need to get something from someone else; when the need is fulfilled, we love them and when it is not fulfilled, we hate them.

~ Fear always distorts our perception and confuses us as to what is going on.  Love is the total absence of fear.

~  The mind can be thought of as containing reels and reels of motion picture film about our past experiences.  These images are superimposed not only on each other but also on the lens through which we experience the present.

~  It is important always to be gentle with yourself.

~ Sometimes we put more value in predicting and controlling than in having peace of mind.  At times, it feels more important for us to predict that we are going to be miserable the met moment, and then find pleasure in being right, than to have true happiness in the present moment.  This can be looked upon as an insane way of trying to protect ourselves.

(P.S. I like bibliotherapiz-ing myself.)

~  Forgiveness is the vehicle used for correcting our misperceptions and for helping us let go of fear.  Simply stated, to forgive is to let go.

~ “This day I choose to spend in perfect peace.”

~  I see all things as I would have them be.

~  Instead of seeing others as attaching us, we can see them as fearful.  … Fear is really a call for help, and therefore a request for Love.

~  Forgiveness is the letting go of the past, and is therefore the means for correcting our misperceptions.

~  To aid in retraining your mind… ask yourself the following questions in all circumstances, private or interpersonal: 1) Do I choose to experience peace of mind or do I choose to experience conflict? 2) Do I choose to experience love or fear? 3) Do I choose to be a love finder or a fault finder? 4) Do I choose to be a love giver or a love-seeker? 5) Is this communication (verbal or non-verbal) loving to the other person and is it loving to me?

~  It is important always to be gentle with yourself.
