The Choice for Love


What does the voice of fear

whisper to you?


Fear speaks to you

in logic and reason.

It assumes the language

of Love itself.

Fear tells you,

“I want to make you safe.”

Love says,

“You are safe.”


Fear says,

“Give me symbols.

Give me frozen images.

Give me something

I can rely on.”

Loving truth says,

“Only give me

this moment.”



Fear would walk you

on a narrow path

promising to take you

where you want to go.


Love says,

“Open your arms

and fly with me.”


Every moment of your life

you are offered the opportunity

to choose –

Love or fear,

to tread the earth

or to soar the heavens.
