You can start drawing from the well of love instead of from the well of fear. Every day is a new opportunity for you to call on love. You reach for control instead of love. You go to your mammalian brain when you choose fear. You are asked to reach a higher level of consciousness. One in which love prevails. This is not for the weak. It requires deep faith and courage—a depth you are capable of achieving or it would not be asked of you. Put away your doubts and your exercise bands (it doesn’t take muscle—that was the old way). You learned very young that control was necessary for a safe environment. And so, you are still learning that control is not what makes you safe. Love does. You’ve tried your way. Now try Mine. This is the only thing that is going to bring the inner peace you are looking for.
Someone tried to break into my house. At 4:12am I flew out of bed at the sound of my security system alarm blaring. I didn’t know if someone had actually gotten into the house and was roaming around downstairs as I waited on the second floor for the police car’s arrival. I was defenseless. How would I protect myself if the intruder decided to ascend one of the three staircases? Would I use a gun? Attack with my bed pillow? Hide in a closet? Not once did I think to become love.
After all of the visions I have seen and all the messages that I have heard about love, it was the last thing on my mind. Would it have saved me? Jesus tells me that it would and it does. We can start drawing from the well of love instead of the well of fear. I was hauling the bucket up from the well of fear, fast and furiously.
I am obviously not at that higher level of consciousness yet, and I hope not to be tested again with my life on the line, but maybe that is the point. I am hoping that there are other routes to enlightenment besides loving an intruder!
