“Fear is going to be a player in your life, but you get to decide how much. You can spend your whole life imagining ghosts, worrying about the pathway to the future, but all it will ever be is what’s happening here, the decisions in that we make in this moment, which are based in either love or fear. So many of us choose our path out of fear disguised as practicality. What we really want seems impossibly out of reach and ridiculous to expect, so we never dare to ask the universe for it. I’m saying that you can ask the universe for it.” ~ Jim Carey
If you ask me, we fear too much and we love too little. We have become so attached and so identified with our fears that we forgot what love really feels like. We forgot that underneath all our fears, doubts and insecurities there’s nothing but pure and unconditional love. Love for ourselves, love for those around you and love for life itself.
We have been clinging on to fear for so long that we can no longer remember this truth. We can no longer make the difference between what is real and what is an illusion. No matter how real your fears might seem, and no matter how hard your mind might try to convince you of their authenticity, the truth of the matter is that fear is nothing but an illusion, illusion created by your mind. While love is the only thing that’s real. The only thing that matters.
A Course in Miracles talks about this so beautifully, telling us that there are only two emotions: love and fear. One is real while the other one is nothing but an illusion created by our minds. And in this beautiful and inspiring video, Jim Carey says the exact same thing. Sharing with us his secrets of life and reminding us that:
“You will ever only have two choices: love or fear. Choose love and don’t ever let fear turn you against your playful heart.”
