The Unlearning of Fear

"Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we have learned here. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and the acceptance of love back into our hearts." ~ Marianne Williamson

In our Western society, it seems that most of the choices made, whether consciously or unconsciously are out of some sense of fear. What if all of our choices were made out of love? What would that look like for ourselves and for our world?

We tend to live in this nebulous world of fear, doubt, shame, guilt and the like. I say nebulous because in the end, nothing is gained from those emotions – only more of the same. There is no settling, no peace.

We must unlearn fear and the easiest way to unlearn is to re-member and accept love. As stated, love is what we are born with. Love is who we really are. Unfortunately, we have given into this trance of day to day life. Again, this is choice; a conscious choice or an unconscious choice, it is still a choice.

I say choose love. Let us accept love back into our hearts.

Just start with this one moment.

Love yourself.
