COURAGE

I found this while I was tidying up - it's a big poster in my own handwriting - but I can't remember writing it nor where I got it from. It says ...

IT IS NOT THAT THINGS ARE DIFFICULT THAT WE DO NOT DARE.
It is because we do not dare, that things become difficult.

Courage : an action that springs from the heart. All action inspired by a center of true love brings with itself security and firmness that cannot be disturbed. To be courageous is to know that fear offers no resistance to love.

Hmmm.. it's quite appropriate that I found this now : I am starting a brand new training tonight - Idea Generators In Progress. And my POV of how to be a great idea person is to simply allow love to be stronger than fear.

Which leads me to another topic. Neale Donald Walsch, author of the amazing 'Conversations With God' series said that all action is motivated by only two things - love or fear. Since then, I have also heard this from many masters. And when I look at all the choices I've made in my life, yes, it can be traced to either love or fear.

ahh that's very deep.. yah, i agree, and i wanna add up a bit. because love and fear is all about emotions. and emotions comes from thought. then i believe, one way to be in command of love over fear is by controlling the thoughts. because after all.. "believing is seeing" [to see is to believe]

I think almost everyone based their choice on love and fear. Whether you're about to get married, buy a cheese cake, killing a bus driver, burning a forest or standing firm on their beliefs - they all come down to either love and fear.

And these two -whether they are right or wrong - will always balance things out in our life. One way or another, never ever regret the choice one bit

I agree that actions are motivated by love and fear. Fear is there because of negativity. We expect the worse even before we try. Positivity will help to overcome fear. By looking the the positive, fear will no longer be there. Love is not the only powerful emotion.
