In choosing thoughts, feelings and actions, we have two sources from which to operate—love or fear.
In any situation, we can ask ourselves, "Am I feeling this way, speaking and acting from a place of love or fear?"
By simply stepping back, releasing ourselves briefly from the emotional charge of the moment, we can better assess our motivation.
A deep breath can bring insight and restore the connection to our heart center, which always operates from love through Spirit.
The only real choice is Love.
Love is the key.
Gentle and timely reminders for the spiritual journey, because sometimes we forget or need a kind nudge back to Center.
