[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] You have nothing to lose

What fear demands, love cannot even see. The fierce attraction that guilt
holds for fear is wholly absent from love's gentle perception. What love
would look upon is meaningless to fear, and quite invisible. ACIM

One of my mentors told me in everything you do act as if there is nothing
to fear and nothing to lose because you always gain, even when or if you
feel afraid still believe that there is nothing to fear and go through hard
and do it! and this is one of the pieces of advice I took to heart and
approach so many of my scenarios. So it was quite interesting yesterday
when someone told me "you always seem to come here and act like you have
nothing to lose" I stood watching her with my mouth wide open because I
never told her that and it was indeed my philosophy in doing this project
that I am now working on! So the lessons for me on this encounter were

  1. It pours out of you - just when you think people are not clued into
    what's going on inside of you, your actions reflect it and it pours out of
    you. As within so without- if you eat healthy food more than junk it will
    show up in your body structure, what you put in surely shows up on the
    outside.

  2. You hold on less especially to fear and worry when you believe that you
    have nothing to lose

  3. It's all lessons - everything is a lesson, there is something to learn
    about yourself in each and every encounter

So dwell on what you desire to create and move ahead focused, there really
is nothing to fear Peace
