My amazing friend, Angus Rickard, first introduced me to his mantra “Experience Love Now” some two or three years ago. Since that time I have pondered it, twisted it over in my mind, made every effort to apply it, and the results have been extraordinary. These three simple words have simplified my life dramatically.
Our choices define our lives
Every day we have choices.
We can choose to be happy or sad.
We can choose to love or to hate.
We can choose to be scared or to be free.
We can choose to experience new things or close ourselves off to the world.
If we choose love as our starting point we remove the negatives – fear, hate, ignorance, intolerance, bigotry and even self-loathing.
If we choose love, we find contentment in our current lot. We are not angry, bitter or jealous. We understand just where we are and why. We go through our day without the need to drag anyone else down to our own depths of despair and misery.
You must be the change that you want to see in the world
- Mahatma Gandhi
Leopards can change their spots
The saying “A leopard never changes its spots” is fundamentally incorrect.
Change is merely a decision. And decisions are easy. Fear is what holds people back. Fear can be overcome.
You want to make a significant change in your life? Then make a choice.
… a simple choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love instead see all of us as one. Here’s what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. Take all that money we spend on weapons and defenses each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would pay for many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace. – Bill Hicks
It’s so simple
Change your perspective.
Open your third eye.
Experience love now.
Understanding love and contentment will significantly simplify your every action.
