Love Or Fear? Poem by G.R. Gaus

Love Or Fear?

Rating: 5.0


I’ve heard we have two choices,
On which road, we wish to live;
My mind competes with voices,
Whether to hoard, or to forgive.

To follow the one most natural,
They say the spirit will flow,
It seems to feel quite casual,
The heart beats with aglow.

Then there is the other road,
The one, most traveled down,
It seems to carry a heavy load,
Lost, with no direction bound.

Must have been a fork in the road
Surely passed it along the way,
Anxious, to except what’s bestowed,
Before I’m led farther astray.

A tough row to hoe, finding home,
Wandering deep within the mind,
Life’s journey, only traveled alone,
Throughout time; for humankind.

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
In most modern new age teachings, true consciousness is only attained in the present moment referred to as the now, where God's love exists exclusively. The norm for most everyone else is living in the unconscious state of mind, past and future where fear exists. Love and fear like oil and water don't mix. Meditation can sometimes provide a temporary gateway to the now existence and once there you may realize for the first time, I choose love over fear…..
