Before man are life and death, good and evil, whichever he chooses shall be given him.
Sirach 15: 17
Every single moment of every single day, we choose the world we are living in. There is nothing “new” about this choice. New Agers and those from the New Thought, Starseed and Ascension communities in their foundational message about choice are simply echoing the wisdom of the ancients. Moses was given the key to this truth. Isaiah and Jeremiah gave the Israelites this choice. Jesus made this choice and taught his female and male disciples how to do the same. Mary Magdalene made this choice and became witness to the risen Christ. St. Francis of Assisi made this choice and transformed the Church as did Teresa of Avila, Julian of Norwich and Hildegard of Bingen. Meister Eckhart made this choice as did Gandhi, Mother Theresa and the Dalai Lama.
We choose the world we are living in and that choice is as simple as choosing between love and fear. This choice between love and fear then produces the way in which we perceive, approach and live in our world – are we choosing life or death, good or evil? Again, it all boils down to one simple choice – love or fear.
When we choose love over fear, we soon discover:
- There is nothing to fear.
- There is no reason to hate.
- We have no enemies.
- The world is beautiful and peaceful.
- People are inherently kind to one another.
- Instead of fearing those who differ from us, we become curious and long to get to know them.
- We come together in communion instead of building walls between us.
- We see possibility instead of defeat.
- We see endings as new beginnings.
It really is this simple.
My choice is for love. What are you going to choose?
