A QUOTE WORTH SHARING...

 

 

 "There are two basic motivating forces: fear and

love.  When we are afraid, we pull back from life.

When we are in love, we open to all that life has

to offer with passion, excitement and acceptance.

We need to learn  to love ourselves first, in all

our glory and our imperfections.  If we cannot

love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our

ability to love others or our potential to create.

Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in

the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of

people who embrace life."

                                             -John Lennon-

The moving finger writes; And having writ, Moves on: nor all your Piety nor Wit Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line Nor all your Tears Wash out a Word of it. Omar Khayam

Very nice reading on an overcast, cool day. Thank you.

 

Quote supports conflict theory to responses - so  many have a flight or fight or freeze response to perceived threat. These aren't appropriate responses, but do reflect fear, rejection, insecurity.
