NFF: Choosing Words

No Fear Friday, Love not Fear

#nofearfriday “If everyone demanded ‘peace’ instead of…” It’s a statement that makes us chuckle, right? Kind of a no brainer—but, what if we began interchanging the word “television” with words like SUV or anger or bagels? And what if we change “peace” for empathy or kindness or clean water?

The words we choose have an impact. Words have an energy about them. They mean different things to different people, but we can’t deny their power. So, in thinking about changing the words in the John Lennon quote, it’s really about what are we going to focus us in our life?

It doesn’t mean we ignore the things we don’t want. It’s important to stand up for what we believe is right and good, but many times our thinking becomes so automatic what we forget the simplicity and sublime in Lennon’s quote. Choose what you want!


NO FEAR FRIDAY is a weekly campaign of meditative thoughts on Instagram that encourage taking action from a place of LOVE rather than fear. 

The book No Fear Friday — an artful look at meditative ideas intended to open us. Available on Amazon.
