F������� 2, 2011  LOUISE CON’T FROM PAGE 20 H.D.Thoreau and F.D. Roosevelt both remind us, “There is nothing to fear but fear itself”. When the assistant princi- ple approached the boy with the gun in his hand, he came gently with compas- sion….fear dissipated, the gun fell to the ground. If the principle had approached the boy with fear and control, he prob- ably would have been shot. Where do we go from a world of insanity? Somewhere on the other side of despair?”- T.S. Eliot Violence is a wake-up call, a shout for love. Yet many of us assume it is a shout for hate. Now that we are awake, let us not be afraid....for there is an an- swer. Where there is a will there is a way. Joanna Rogers Macy wrote in her book, Despair and Personal Power in the Nuclear Age, “Every system – be it a cell, a tree, a mind, - is like a trans- former, changing the very stuff that fl ows through it.” We can transform the fear of violence into the power of love. “We are what we think. All that we are arises out of our thoughts. With our thoughts we create the world.” –The Buddha Fear is a natural emotion, an instinct guiding us to pay attention. Once we are aware, we can turn fear into a re- minder that we are not victims of the world, powerless, we are power- ful beyond measure. It all starts with perception. When we see with eyes ���.D�����M��������.��� of supporting nonviolence and desir- ing peace, we fi nd answers and attract peace. Affi rmations are a welcoming of new energy being released into the universe. They are prayer in action. Affi rmations have proved to be a great tool for assist- ing great change. Here are 6 affi rmations I leave you with. 1. Today I will look for the good. I will see the beauty in life. As I remember my goodness, I see the good in others. We are all angels in apprenticeship, doing the best that we can. 2. Today I will turn fear into love. We all deserve love and kindness. We are creative, spiritual beings, worthy and precious to the world. Everyday in ev- eryway more joy is coming into our world. 3. I open my heart to gratefulness. I look at all I have to be grateful for. 4. I trust life and accept life, knowing there is more to life than I can see. I believe in my family, my community, my dreams, my hopes, my work, and myself and I know this belief will be richly rewarded and increase love. 5. Forgiveness is fl owing through me, releasing any blocks of fear or tension in my body and my life. The more I forgive others, and myself, the better I feel. 6. I am never alone. I am protected and supplied. “Are people affecting the world of reality that they see?” ….you betcha! From Fred Alan Wolf, PhD. The Little Book of Bleeps.
