They say the only two emotions that us human beings live by is fear and love, all other emotions are sub-emotions of the two. I couldn't agree more...love serves as progression, while fear's job is to hinder. We fear so many things every single day...things we aren't even aware that we fear. We harness power that is unmeasurable, but we'll never be able to unlock it unless we begin to overcome the fear that consumes us.
We constantly fear events that'll occur in the future, losing sight of the greatest gift, which is the present. And if you really think about it, your fear almost always outweighs the actual outcome. LIFE IS ALL ABOUT THE PRESENT. We seem to forget that....so we spend time dwelling on the past, and/or fearing the future. Think about this....how many times have you missed out on an opportunity to talk to a girl/guy simply because you were too scared to approach them? How many times have you missed out on an opportunity to connect to a stranger because as you walked past them, you were scared to make eye contact? Fear completely kills us...to the point where people are even afraid to be themselves because they're scared that they won't be accepted as people.
The fear of death is something that more people fear than not...i hate to say this, and i know it sounds bad, but that religion is responsible for that. We live our lives in fear that once we die, we may go to a realm of darkness where we will suffer for an eternity...if we're not good enough people. The bible even says that you are too FEAR GOD. Really? Why should we fear the entity that is all knowing and all LOVING? If we all knew that once we died, we'd be in a place of comfort and love, we'd feel much better about living here on earth, therefore getting rid of alot of that crippling fear (YouTube 'near death experiences'). We'd be one step closer to reaching full potential. Thus making us more capable. I believe that somewhere long ago, the concept of Love was kidnapped and implemented into a system that would allow a certain group (Illuminati?) to control us. EVIDENCE SHOWS that when controlling a subject, that subject must first FEAR YOU. It's actually much like training a dog. Therefore the concept of Love was worked into what we know as religion, which tells you that if you don't follow it, THEN YOU WILL FOREVER BURN IN THE FIREY PITS OF HELL! Cmon...really? I doubt it. The basic concept of Love is there, but different systems were created to separate us as people, making it easier for 'them' to control us. There should only be one religion in this world....LOVE.
But anyway, i've began to stray from my point....Stop saying no to life and start saying YES. No is fear, Yes is Love. Say those two words to yourself....like literally say them to yourself out loud RITE NOW. Don't those two words give you a completely different feeling when you say them? Watch the movie 'Yes Man' with Jim Carey. There's a great underlying message in that movie that you should pay attention to. Fear prohibits every single great opportunity that this world has in store for you. Being brave and saying 'Yes' not only enables an opportunity for that situation, but it's the beginning of saying yes to life and all it has to offer.
