At all times we must be careful not to let fear drive our decision-making. The Sioux say that in loving all, people find a due portion of what they seek, while fear only feeds the need for conquest.
If we choose love as the primary driver of our thoughts, we see the values of God and they drive our reason.
If we choose fear, our mind quickly becomes paralyzed, we turn away from God, and we soon go on the offensive.
Fear drives us to attack, to conflict, and to our need to control.
Love brings peace of mind, seeks unity with all, and causes our decision-making system to put love first and foremost.
Tune out those who lead by fear, and follow those who lead with love.
