What If It’s True?

Love vs. Fear by Max S. Volonte

What if it were true that as you choose your state of Being, you create your destiny? How would you choose to live and BE?

In Neale Donald Walsch’s book “Conversations with God – book 1”, one of the conversations compares the lives of 2 people. These 2 people have relatively equal skills; both graduated from college at the top of their class; both understand their jobs; both know how to use their knowledge and skill extremely well. And, yet, one does better than the other; one flourishes while the other struggles.

The question is what’s the difference.

Love vs. Fear by Max S. VolonteThe answer given is that the difference is in their state of being. One person is “Being” in a place of love while the other is “Being” in a place of fear. One person is “Being” open, friendly, caring, helpful, considerate, cheerful, confident, even joyful. The other is “Being” closed, distant, uncaring, inconsiderate, grumpy, even resentful. So, which one do you think is the successful one?

This image I’m borrowing from Max S. Volonté is so perfect. While Max doesn’t share what the image means to him, I see it as which faucet do I turn on–am I opening the faucet to the flow of love or fear? It reminds me of the story about “which wolf are you feeding“.

I propose that we simply assume that the given answer above (being in love versus fear) is true, for now. Do the experiment and experience it.

Here is my question to you. How are you going to BE now that you know it’s true?

What actions and emotions do you live out throughout the day? Are your actions and emotions coming from a place of “Being” love or fear, open or closed, friendly or distant, caring or uncaring, cheerful or grumpy, joyful or resentful?

Does it make a difference?

Coach’s Challenge

Do an experiment and see for yourself. Pick one new way of “being” and practice it for 1 week. Report back what you experience.

I bet you notice how much of a difference it can make.
