Spiritual Awakening With Base Emotions

To bring things to their simplest terms, it is important we understand that there are only two base emotions in the Universe. There is Love and its counter-part Fear. It is from one of these two emotions everyone operates. We choose, whether it’s consciously or not, to operate from one or the other. The following is a brief example of what I mean;
Â
FROM LOVE: Kindness, harmony, gladness, peace of mind, and so on.
Â
FROM FEAR: Hatred, discord, sadness, racism, unrighteous anger, and so on.
Â
We choose to operate within the confines of one of these emotions, or both, on day by day bases. Once a person has an insight as to their place in the Spiritual Universe, even if it’s just a minute bit at first, the peace of Creator’s Love takes root and a rippling effect sets off a chain reaction throughout the person’s entire being.
Â
Understanding who we are is important for us as a people, a nation, and as a society. Being able to live within our own skin and be comfortable with who we are as a person, is a gift greater than no other. That’s why we must daily make a conscious effort to walk in LOVE and to avoid FEAR.
Â
In the Christian Bible there is a scripture that reads, “Love your neighbor as you love yourself.” Let’s look at that statement.
Â
Many Christians comprehend the portion that says “Love your neighbor…” but fail to understand the portion that reads “… as yourself”. I am saying, in part, what Jesus was trying to explain. How can you love and respect your neighbor(s) if you do not love and respect yourself? How can you operate in God without love for yourself? Many claim that God resides within their hearts but do they really see themselves as God sees them? I am afraid they do not.
Â
This is the point that must be made within our own hearts, as well as to others who are seeking a spiritual awakening.
Â
Knowing God loves us, and learning to love ourselves can bring about a realization of just who we are in God.
Â
And in God’s Love we cannot exist with fear in our hearts, or minds.
Â
Rational fear of things that can hurt us is a good thing. Irrational fear is a fetter we must free ourselves from.
Â
Learning that God’s Love for us is based in peace of mind, and security, is the mind set we need to achieve. And in doing this we can see the essence of who we are in God’s Love. This will in turn give us a new lease on life by allowing us to walk in LOVE. We are worthy of God’s Love! We are worthy to love ourselves. And we can learn to love others with the love from within ourselves that is based in the true essence of God. The rational fear in this life is to be afraid of a life without God. Not to be afraid of God. Turning from a negative self out look to a positive self outlook is what we are trying to achieve here. We can do this, the question is do we want to?
