I’ve been pondering something that Abraham stated which was that there is only a source of well-being and everything else is the absence of that and that it is always our choice of which to give our attention.
We have all these duality points such as good and bad, right and wrong, legal and illegal, good and evil, love and fear, and so many more. In lining these up with what Abraham stated, we have given so many names for the source of well-being and also the absence of it. As an example, it seems to me that there really isn’t anything such as fear except that we have branded it so. To think that fear is the opposite of love seems logical, but in Abraham’s statement, fear is only the absence of love because love is well-being after all. And so on. Evil then would only be the absence of good but not something that is in and of itself a thing.
That reminds me of a quote I put in the Daily Inspirations from Dale Carnegie: “You can conquer almost any fear if you will make up your mind to do so. For remember, fear doesn’t exist anywhere except in the mind." In other words, it is not something in and of itself but a perspective, a thought, an interpretation based on history, etc. Although in this quote, I am not in agreement with the idea of conquering fear because I think it is much more along the lines of letting it go, releasing it, or turning toward love which is our source of well-being.
