This Is The Reason Why You Should Give Everything To Love

Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Give all to love; obey thy heart.”

What are you giving to love? Is love really love to you? What does it mean to you?

To me, “Love is Love.”

“Love is Love.” It is the only way forward in our lives. We can’t do anything productive without love. We can’t eat without love. We can’t read without love. We can’t help others without love. We can’t help ourselves without love. In fact, without love, we are nothing! Yes, we are nothing.

Without love, there is no way forward for us. Why is that? Because we can’t live in fear, we can’t live in hate. We want to get better in life. And that is only possible if we have the courage to live in love. No matter what, my friends, love is better than hate. It is a giver. It gives life without expecting anything in return. It transforms us without damaging us. It connects us with other people without focusing on our differences. It doesn’t discriminate. It just loves us. And if you want to connect with your inner life, your inner house, the only way to do it is through love.

In fact, do not do anything without love. Love is the way. Nothing more, nothing less. According to Paulo Coelho, “Love is the force that transforms and improve the soul of the world. ... It is we who nourish the soul of the world, and the world we live in will either better or worse, depending on whether we become better or worse. Because when we love, we always strive to become better than we are.” That is why “Love is Love.” Love is all that we need to live our lives. The Scripture says, “Love thy neighbor as thy self.” Love your neighbor as yourself. If you love God, love thy neighbor. If you love God, love thyself. Do not ignore thyself. Because you need thyself.

How To Use Fear As The Friend It Is

Fear is your friend. If you want to learn from fear, make fear your friend. Do not make fear your enemy. Because we don’t like our enemies. We hate them. We don’t want to associate ourselves with them. But if you really want to walk past your fears, you must embrace them.

Why is that? Because the road to your dreams is wide open. But you can close it yourself if you don’t have the courage to face your fears. Remember, my friend, to conquer something, you must face it. To eliminate something, you must take action. You cannot conquer your fears by running from them. Because the more you run from them, the more they conquer you. Instead of running from your fears, make them as the friend they are. According to Peter McWilliams, To use fear as the friend it is, we must retrain and reprogram ourselves... we must persistently and convincingly tell ourselves that the fear is here- with its gift of energy and heightened awareness- so we can do our best and learn the most in the new situation.”

Fear is not new. So why worry yourself about it? Don’t worry yourself about it. Live your life. Don’t let fear stop you from living your life. Don’t let fear stop you from chasing your dreams. Whether small or big, chase it. Only fear can stop you from chasing your dreams. Don’t let it happen. Instead, let fear spring you to your next level, to your next opportunity. It takes courage to do that. You have it. You can do it. Do not look back. Always look forward. Do not let past failures stop you from trying new things. Fear is there, but don’t give in to it. If you do, you will fail. But if you don’t, you will pass.
