A wonderful friend sent me today's topic and after looking into the source, it is from John Lennon. This got me to reading a lot of what John Lennon had to say, and it was pretty enlightening. I am kinda surprises I had never gone into all his thoughts before, but now it is an exciting new perspective.
The sun set on another day today, and it was an almost amazing sunset again, with cloud cover on the horizon that stole the best view at the instant it would have been just perfect. The quote I was sent fits right in with today's sunset:
"There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life"
There are so many versions of this simple truth it boggles the mind. If we live in fear, we cannot live a fulfilled life. Fear of the unknown comes to the top of the list. If we live and honor love, we can change the world int a better place. So today, as the sun sets, consider your fears, you fear of change, of making a mistake, of disappointing someone, or the myriad of other fears that float around, and instead grab your passion, hold on, and change the world.
