Fear: "To be afraid or feel anxious or apprehensive about a possible or probable situation or event." I learned this week that we are either showing love or fear. If we are not showing love; acting loving, or feeling like we cannot express our love for/to someone, we are showing fear. Fear about a "possible or probable situation or event". Inside we are fearful of something if we are not acting in love. Whether it be inadequacy, dishonesty, abandonment, you name it; we are either showing fear or love. "As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." Another word for liberate is emancipate: to make equal/give equal power to. So in other words, as we give equal power to ourselves as we give our fear, our presence alone gives others the hope of emancipation of their fears, therefore allowing us to show love and act in a loving way to those who surround us.
