All human actions are motivated at their deepest level by one of two emotions - Fear or Love. In truth there are only two emotions - only two words in the language of the soul.
Fear wraps our bodies in clothing, Love allows us to stand naked. Fear clings to and cluthes all that we have, Love gives all that we have away. Fear holds close, Love holds dear. Fear graps, Love lets go. Fear rankles, Love soothes. Fear attacks, Love amends.
