Love, Not Fear

"Those who love to be feared fear to be loved, and they themselves are more afraid than anyone, for whereas other men fear only them, they fear everyone."- Francis de Sales, Bishop of Geneva

Where there is fear, there can be no love. Why is that? Because love and fear cannot live together.
You cannot love and fear at the same time. 

If you love something, you can't hate it at the same time. If you do, then it is not real love. 
If you love something, you cannot fear it at the same time. If you do, then you are not being honest with yourself.

Love is bigger than fear. Love is better than fear. Love is sweeter than fear. When you are in love, you know no fear. When you are in love, you know no hate. When you love yourself, you accept yourself as you are. When you love others, you accept them as they are. 

Love is about acceptance, not about rejection. Love brings people together. Love doesn't separate people. Love is a healer, not a killer.
With love, with the power of love, you can bring out the best in other people. And with the power of love, you can bring out the best in yourself. Because love asks that you take care of yourself.

Have Patience With Yourself

"Have patience with every one, but especially with yourself."- Francis de Sales, Bishop of Geneva
If you want to achieve great things in your life, do not rush the process. Patience is powerful. It is stronger than you think. If you have it, there is nothing you cannot achieve. 

"He that can have patience can have what he will."- Benjamin Franklin

Things will happen when the time is right. You can't force things to happen. Life is patience.
And with patience, you can see what is going on around you. You can see what is going on within you. With patience, you can ask yourself the right questions. You can see through yourself. 

Why? Because you are not in a hurry. You are with yourself. You are right in the moment. When you are in the moment, you can focus on what is. 
And it takes patience to live in the moment. And it takes patience to work with other people. And it takes patience to be yourself, to discover who you are, to figure out what you like, to figure out what you do not like, and to face your life.
If you want to conquer yourself, do not rush the process. Just be patient with yourself.
