Emmet Fox - How do you feel? #essentialsofrec #Fear #Love

Really there are only two feelings that a human being can have, namely, love and fear.

It is generally supposed that the kinds of feeling we may have are legion, but this is an illusion. All other feelings, so-called, will turn out upon analysis to be either love or fear.

What about anger? Well, anger is really but fear in disguise. In chemistry we occasionally find the same substance occurring under completely different appearances. For example, black lead is exactly the same substance chemically as a diamond, different as they look. There are said to be allotropic forms of carbon.

In the same way, anger, hatred, jealousy, criticism, egotism, are but allotropic forms of fear.

Joy, interest, the feeling of success and accomplishment, the appreciation of art, are allotropic forms of love.

The great difference between the two feelings is that love is always creative, and fear is always destructive. A sesnse of love rebuilds the body, lengthens the life, brings inspiration, expands business, opens the way in a thousand directions, overcomes any obstacle.

Fear destroys the body, kills inspiration, paralyzes business, throws a winter of death over everything.

It is for us to decide which of these two feelings shall hold sway in our lives.

"God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him."
