Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown, New Zealand

There are two fundamental systems of belief: Love and Fear. Everything that we do, think and say can be interpreted as coming from one of these two root emotions. We have a choice. We do not have to respond compulsively out of fear. We do not have to react with anger. Our frustration, disappointment, feelings of worthlessness, helplessness, loneliness, and anxiety all come from fear.

We can choose a different course. We can choose a loving attitude towards every situation we face and every person we encounter. When we do, the world is brighter. People react differently to us. Most importantly, we owe ourselves the same loving attitude that we offer others.

Let's make every decision from love. Let's greet every person with a loving attitude. Let's treat ourselves the same way. We deserve it because love is our very essence.
