The opposite of love is not fear.
That would mean that fear weighs equally and carries the same power as Love.
In fact, even fear ends up serving Love in this divinely orchestrated play where we are the dancers, the dance, the music, the choreographers and audience all at once.
The opposite of fear is responsibility:
Response – Ability 🔥
Fear freezes you.
Fear overwhelms you.
Fear is looking up at the challenge and feeling powerless.
Fear is matching external⠀chaos with internal turmoil.
Responsibility is awareness.🌞
It is a declaration of power.
A resolution towards clarity.
A still mind, open heart and obedient body.
Responsibility is choosing consciously!
Fear is renouncing to that choice.
Fear enslaves ⛓️
Responsibility frees 🕊
And you are being called at this time to pick a team!
Which side do you choose to support in this game?
Fear is being (over)reactive
Responsibility is being (pro)active🙏🏻
I invite you to take a deep breath…
Now feel that subtle calm that conscious breath brings with it..
Act only from this place.
Do not let the uncertainty of the current situation make you crumble.
For it is during this storm that the skills of the sailors are tested.
And you get to choose if you withdraw in panic..
Or you isolate mindfully.
Being relentlessly optimistic AND ruthlessly practical.
This is the moment where you test what you’re made of – and make yourself anew.
Dumas said it best:
” Life is a storm, my young friend.
You will bask in the sunlight one moment, be shattered on the rocks the next.
What makes you a man is what you do when that storm comes.
You must look into that storm and shout as you did in Rome. Do your worst, for I will do mine!
Then the fates will know you as we know you…”
