Love Vs Fear

Nothing and everything cannot coexist. To believe in one is to deny the other. Fear is really nothing and love is everything. ACIM 


How many times have we pre-planned an event in our mind, we create scenarios and have proper conversations about what can happen, what ought to happen, what will happen if he or she says or does so and so!

And then when the event actually happens, it goes nothing as we anticipated, especially when the conversation is based on fear.


Fear has its place, it is a survival mechanism. we have evolved from living out in the wilderness, we have taken this survival mechanism and used it inappropriately to cause ourselves and others undue stress and strife.


Fear is really nothing and love is everything - I absolutely live by this when I am feeling totally at sea and afraid I remember this line

Love is everything, love of self first, love of others, love of life

If you are reminded that love is everything, you will not act in fear.


What have you been doing in fear?

What have you been doing in love?

Pay attention to that

Peace

Inspirational for both year groups. Forms 3 and 5. They were at the edge of their seats. prodding them to plan and even when things do not go as planned... to never give up when faced with life’s challenges
