Wisdom from Gurutej Khalsa

Right now is a life and death battle between sacred and scared. The scale swings sometimes wildly. Fear is what comes and scares us. They came to you at some time in the past when you needed that protective warning and now they have overstayed their welcome and you haven’t booted them out.

The love/fear scale is to test our awareness. More love, less fear; more fear, less love. Love is the great dispeller of fear. Love is the great bringer of sacred. Have you noticed that when you go take care of someone else, when you listen to someone else from your heart, when you wake up to someone around you, you have more love than fear?

Fold a piece of paper in half anyway you want. At the top left write “Fears” and at the top right write “Love”. Then make a list of what creates or awakens your fears on the left.

thanks Gurutej and Gail

from a non denominational saint:

"Let your supreme goal be to make others happy in order to gain happiness for yourself. Take a genuine interest in the problems of others. Every time you meet a receptive human being, make him feel your interest in his physical, mental, and spiritual welfare. Never neglect to do whatever you can for yourself in the forms of others. Live by the principle, “Each for all and all for each.” In getting for yourself, you must get for others too."
