The following question has been asked by countless individuals: Is man innately good or evil?

My life experience has shown me that man is innately love—good, but easily overcome with fear—evil. This fear is an “evil” of our minds, an ill that causes all of our self-destructive behaviors that steer us away from love.

Ironically, this fearful state is recognizable, undeniable and identifiable. So, what gives? What motivates us to change our lives for the better? What causes us to fully recognize our own self-created, self-destructive behaviors that we continuously repeat throughout our lives?

You and I, as individuals, give way to every moment we each create as human beings living on this planet earth. We are here to create life: the life that we each choose, as individuals, for better or for worse. Each day, we make countless choices that determine the direction of our lives. We, as individuals, have the ability to choose whatever we desire for ourselves. Each day provides us with new opportunities to grow and learn, and we all can make choices that will improve our world beyond measure.

Heal Yourself:

This week pay attention to what motivates your thoughts and actions. Is it fear or love?

When fear is motivating you, step back and take on a loving perspective instead. Ask yourself how you can be motivated by love and allow yourself to understand the benefits of this fresh perspective.

At times, you may find yourself choosing the same actions, but your motivation will be different. Your thoughts will be based on love. This will create a peaceful dynamic within your mind that previously did not exist.

We are creatures of habit and unaware that we react from our past. Changing your motivation to love will bring about a welcomed state of healing; a shift to a better way of life. You will feel the difference and be amazed at how good you can feel.
