Fear is the mind’s excuse for insanity
Our real power is derived from our perfect love and honesty

The source of an idea is what makes it true or false. (A Course in Miracles)

There are the ideas that originate from fear, which are false. Then there are the ideas that originate from love, which are true.

Fear is the emotion of ego and the mind’s excuse for insanity. From the base emotion of fear flows all ugliness; such as ambition, selfishness, jealousy, greed, sarcasm, attack, and anger. No matter how clever a fear-based idea may seem, it will produce nothing of value because intentions flowing from fear are selfish and misguided.

The agenda behind fear-based ideas is self-centered salvation through external situations and forms. Even in those rare cases when such a goal is manifested, it will not inspire joy or eliminate suffering. No matter how much effort, skill, and dedication, fear is ugly and only ugliness can flow from it.

Love, on the other hand, is the energy of life. The gentle, yet powerful force of love within effortlessly guides us to give and to create that which has true and eternal value. Operate from this mindset and everything you do is successful. Why? Because, in a state of perfect love, you have already achieved success within. You already feel good. Now you can extend that good feeling and beautiful way of being through everything you do.

To operate from the source of love, it is first necessary to undo the mental conditioning of this world. This requires meditation and a daily spiritual practice. Even something as simple as reading these posts each day with an open heart and mind. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.
