I Dream of a Time when we can all say 'I love you' to Anyone

Source

Really? The answer is hatred, fear and violence?

I have a hard time picturing a mindset that wants to live in a world where hatred, fear and violence is preferred over peace of mind. Maybe, in a gentle way, you could tell me what is bothering you about the state of peace of mind? Or the very thought of having it?

What is it exactly that you want this gun for? I know there is an energy of fear across the whole world. Would that be your motivation? Is the idea of love and peace so foreign to you that you would give up your freedom and your peace of mind for your fear? If you believe in God, or an intelligent source, or conscious creation, itself, I know you have had the concept of faith introduced to you. Oh ye of little faith, take up your arms to make your life safer.

At the moment my life is a dedication to my dream in the title, I dream of a time when we can all say 'I love you' to Anyone. I have searched my mind and resources for the answer to this conundrum, 'why would anyone choose fear over peace of mind and love? The only explanation for this is that people are unconscious about the fact that they are choosing to promote violence and fear at every moment. My assessment of the situation right now is that I am keenly aware of which I am choosing and I would like to invite you to choose consciously, for yourself, instead of letting fear zap your creativity to fire itself up. What will be on the record of this life when it is done? Will it be "Brought so much love to the world that the world became love?,,, or will it be "I didn't care about all this enough to make it safe to live here?"

Fear has many, many excuses why love is unsafe. It tells us that we could not keep ourselves safe unless we are armed to the teeth. I recently had a short conversation with a no holds barred gun enthusiast on Facebook. He made the point that 'guns don't shoot people, people shoot people' and that mental illness was the cause of all this random school violence across the country. So, I responded by saying, "Should we require a mental health exam before allowing a person to buy a gun, then?" I'll let you know when I hear back from him.

The consciousness, also known as "God" is always showing us things about life, like how good it feels to share love with someone as opposed to how bad it feels to hurt someone. Hatred is the ugly head of fear and leads to things so heinous in this world that most of us could not even imagine it. We are choosing love or fear every moment that passes. We are choosing either knowledge or ignorance, peace or violence, generosity or greed. Each of us is choosing this world at every moment. Please choose wisely....

It is my great happiness to love you,

Lela

I definitely agree with you. It is much too easy to kill another.

aviannovice, blessings to you. There appears to be a direct correlation between unconsciousness and fear. Fear is a shield through which we interpret everything, so is love. I have to think that anyone choosing fear over love is unconscious about their part in the conditions causing the things they fear. The only way through this is through love. With love comes wings and direct contact with God. Love, Lela

Beautifully stated, and words to live by each and every day.

Genna, thank you so much for reading this article and for what you have said about it. I talk with God and listen for God every chance I get and I feel that I am being told to do everything I can to bring love to the world. There have been many who changed the world, some for the better, some for the worse, and I do not know how much I can actually change it, but if I can see a way to bring more consciousness and love into the world, I must do it, I simply must. Blessings to you. Love, Lela
