Your every thought, word, and action spring from either love or fear. The nature of your choices determines the quality of your life.

Love is the whisper of the Divine, ceaselessly calling creation back toward the Creator. Fear expresses itself as anger, intimidation, insecurity, despair, self-loathing, or any other emotion or behavior not grounded in love.

When you choose love, you are coming from your heart and declaring that you trust God to handle the consequences. When you choose fear, you are coming from your head and assuming that you can manage the situation better than God can.

Choose love, and you are being proactive; you are making things happen, living a life of choice, and getting better. Choose fear, and you are being reactive; you are letting things happen, living a life of chance, and getting bitter.

Choose love and you share your authentic self with the world. Choose fear and you conceal your true identity from others and, worse yet, from yourself.

Choose fear, and you will forever be searching for happiness and fulfillment through other people, possessions, and experiences. Choose love, and you discover unimaginable bliss within your own heart.

Choose love, and you serenely welcome whatever gifts are delivered to your door. Choose fear, and you affirm that you do not trust what tomorrow may bring.

Choose love and you are illuminating your future with the radiant promise of undreamed-of possibilities. Choose fear and you are casting a pallor over your state of mind and all the days that remain to you.

Choose love, and your words and actions help heal the world. Choose fear, and your own world becomes a less hospitable place to live.

Choose fear, and peace remains a stranger. Choose love, and peace gathers you tenderly in its arms.

Love is the language of God. Love is God. You exist because of love. You exist to share love. You exist to be love. Love is evidence of God’s presence within you.

Love is far more than a choice you make or an emotion you feel. Love is the life force of the Universe. Love is the elemental energy that created and sustains creation itself. Whoever taps into its power walks hand in hand with God.

Ultimately, love defies definition. Every expression of love, every sensation of being loved, is as unique as the individual experiencing it.

So which will you choose, love or fear? Choose love, and you are charting a new course, creating a different outcome, transcending the circumstances at hand, and appreciating all the gifts that life has to offer.

Choose fear, and you are acting out old scripts, falling prey to bad habits, holding fast to patterns of behavior that no longer serve you, and taking life’s most precious gifts for granted.

May you choose love. It is a wonderful place to live. When your time on earth is done, all that will matter is how much love is in your heart. Why wait another minute to begin living that truth?

  1. Each moment’s choice of love or fear recreates us and the world, regardless of our past choices. Blessings for the kindness and intimacy of your heartfelt message.

  2. Thank you Phil, this is very inspiring, I love it. My mantra is ” Always come from a place of Love. ”
    It has served me well, whenever I have a choice to make, the mantra guides me.

  4. Thank you so much. This piece is amazing and a great reminder that we get to choose how we want to feel. I just loved it. xx

  5. Namaste and thank you very much for this simple and beautiful heart felt expression of your truth. Yes, in the presence of love, fear disappears. Personally, the antidote of fear is to pray-meditate-pray-meditate; and to listen to the still inner voice and know when it is time to take a stand.

    1. Thank you for your perceptive comment, Ashalome. I would add that fear is severely diminished when you authentically surrender to the Divine. Surrender is the cornerstone of living a spiritual life.

  6. Love love it! Thank you so much,so nice to see others understanding the laws of the universe.Lately as i go through my day and remember I have been imagining a big heart bubble around the people I meet and send them on their way with love, it feels wonderful!

    1. Yes, that’s a beautiful visualization, Michelle. It reminds me of this excerpt from my book, “Through God’s Eyes” (

      Beginning today, treat everyone you meet, friend or foe, loved one or stranger, as if they were going to be dead at midnight. Extend to each person, no matter how trivial the contact, all the care and kindness and understanding and love that you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.

      1. Thank you Phil these are words I needed to hear this morning. I might add that in addition to extending to each person. When you are 10 ft away from someone create eye contact and smile. When you are 5 ft away from someone Say Good Morning, Good Day or God Bless. It makes a total difference on how your day turns out when it has been given over to God to control. So Thank you.

  7. Wow! such profound statements. I read your topic above, 3 times and will do so again, knowing where it came from ( Our Creator). I am inspired indeed. I Must make copies and distribute to my prayer meeting class to day for I cannot keep it to myself; as that is not love. Thank you so much. May the Lord bless and keep you. May He turn His face toward you and give you peace. Blessings to you sir.

  8. Beautiful; thank you Phil. Always fun to see where your writing is taking you now. Jane (from the Fingerhut basement era)
