“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer.”–John Lennon
Remember when you were in grade school picking teams for say, kickball or Red Rover?
Even if you weren’t the team captain, you knew exactly who you wanted on your team.
Every single third-grader knew who was the fastest player, the most daring, the one most likely to succeed in breaking through the meaty arms of the classroom bully brigade.
Still today we get to choose who’s on our team, who leads the executive committee in our minds. Only now it boils down to two team players.
There’s the ego, the PR person for fear and limits.
Or there’s love.
In ACIM Lesson 96, we learn there’s no middle ground. There’s no maybe’s. The ego and love are incompatible. They can’t be reconciled. So it’s time to decide.
One choice leads to lack, limitations, more of the same.
The other leads to Divine Intoxication.
So will you join me, my friends, on this beautiful Friday in being fearlessly, joyfully drunk on love?
