Is It Easy to Love?

If we know that all motivations come from either love or fear, why does it sometimes seem hard to love? In this context, I am not just talking about the romantic love between a couple, but the love of life that is exhibited between ourselves and everyone we deal with, from co-workers to customers to neighbors to people we do business with, in other words, just everyone we come in contact with.

Is fear that strong a motivator that we find it easier to live from that perspective, from that motivation?

Living from love means letting go of judgments, letting go of preconceived ideas, of expectations. Living from love means allowing and accepting and going with the flow.

Is it our self defense mechanism that makes us feel like we need more fear? Is it love that allows us enjoy life more easily?

What happens if we loosen up a bit and live more with love than fear? Does life seem to work better for us?

Wayne Dyer once said "Next time you have to choose between being right and being kind, choose being kind. Then see what happens."
