Fear is the most effective weapon of mass destruction in the war on consciousness, and whenever globally significant events of extraordinary impact occur, we are told to be afraid. The news cycle kicks into overdrive. Stories relevant to our actual lives and wellness are brushed asunder. As humans, we tend to pay attention to what’s right in front of us, and so in this world of sensory overload, we’re drawn to the negative repetitive messages intended to stoke fear and weaken or inner authority.

Love and fear are the two fundamental expressions of the human spirit, and in between love and fear exists the vast range of human consciousness. They are mutually exclusive, and serve as the most spectacular example of how the universal polarity of light and dark play out within the microcosm of the human psyche. Love and fear are states of consciousness, perhaps even frames of mind, if you will. They are primary emotions which color our every thought, decision, action and reaction.

“There are only two emotions: love and fear. All positive emotions come from love, all negative emotions from fear. From love flows happiness, contentment, peace, and joy. From fear comes anger, hate, anxiety and guilt. It’s true that there are only two primary emotions, love and fear. But it’s more accurate to say that there is only love or fear, for we cannot feel these two emotions together, at exactly the same time. They’re opposites. If we’re in fear, we are not in a place of love. When we’re in a place of love, we cannot be in a place of fear.” ~Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
