It’s very easy to be motivated by fear: what I don’t want to happen, what I want to correct, etc. That’s not very powerful though. We’ve tried that for centuries and centuries. Whatever it is, if it’s motivated by fear, it’s still in the old conciousness. If it’s motivated by love, then it has power. Then we’re not so interested in what we’re against, we’re intersted in what we’re for. That’s a very different thing.
When all of your consciousness goes to what you’re for, which is inately positive, it’s not being motivated by fear. When we look at what we’re against, it’s always motivated by fear.”—Adyashanti
