There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. . . . Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.  John Lennon

Every significant decision we make is either motivated by love or by fear. Fear causes us to make contracting and limited decisions that have predictable outcomes and are designed to keep us safe in a controlled environment. Generally speaking, these decisions come from limited and false beliefs we hold about ourselves and about life.

Love leads us to make expansive and empowered decisions. Love is the very self-givingness of Life to Life. It is an outward flow and the more it is shared, the more it grows. We can always tell when our decisions are based on our spiritual knowing because the end result expands and grows us.

Spiritual Contemplation: Think about how you use and share your wealth. Think about how you talk about and work with your finances and investments. Are you motivated by love or fear?

Affirmation: I allow love to motivate my decisions about my wealth and finances. This expands my good in more ways than I can count.
