FEAR AND LOVE

 

FEAR AND LOVE

 

Sometimes

it takes

ten thousand years

to come into Love.

 

Sometimes

it takes

milliseconds

to come into Love.

 

Something deep

and eternal

in the soul of us

seeks and knows

Love.

 

Love brought us here

and Love

welcomes us

into Itself.

 

While Fear merely thinks,

Love always knows.

 

Will and

readiness

to trust

through and beyond

Fear

opens this Door.

 

Without fear

we would not come to trust;

without trust

we would not know Love,

because we cannot think Love,

we can only

receive and give Love.

We can only know Love.

 

Fear is the

chasm of control,

the traumatic fog

where rational ego

is tricked

by an invisible Force.

 

Fear is a ravenous river

capable of drowning all

desires and attachments

of a lifetime.

 

Fear exposes

the Other Side

of our preferred identity,

our dark and denied,

our lost and orphaned,

awaiting Love’s Perfection.

 

Without Fear’s mentorship

we could not know Love—

nor our true Self.

 

Facing and embracing

Brother Fear,

we realize

our total Union

in Sister Love;

for Love awaits us

within

each wounded treasure,

now finally restored,

made safe and

humbled

by gentleness.
