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 was created in 2015 with the idea to establish a weekly campaign of meditative thoughts on Instagram that encourage taking action from a place of LOVE rather than fear. Cultivating Love brings kindness and inclusiveness.  No Fear Friday (TM)

A new paperback, No Fear Friday the book, is an artful look at meditative thoughts and ideas intended to open us, and as we practice, can — change the world. Available on Amazon:!
