  •  fwiw I strongly agree (4+ / 0-)

    when you say

    I think in terms of Love overcomes fear. In fact, I view a perfect state of loving as being characterized by fearlessness.

    and also fwiw, I did not include "hatred" in my own repetitive refrain of characteristics,

    turmoil, unhappiness, fear, and anger

    Those who can, do. Those who can do more, TEACH!

    •  What you say is perectly consistent with (3+ / 0-)

      the old saying that true beauty is on the inside.

      Mr. Jackson Jackson describes his mother as sitting "Buddha like". To my interpretation this is more descriptive of an inner state of peacefulness than of posture. Which in turn implies an absence of

      turmoil, unhappiness, fear and anger

      So a loving state is one of internal and external peace. The implications of that on a global scale are beyond comprehension. But each of us can choose to go there personally. And as you and Mr. Jackson say so eloquently, making that choice can have ramifications downstream that cause our effort to model loving choices, to grow.

      We can make it a conscious choice. Why wait for dementia to rob us of our fears when we can surrender them willingly now?

      My personal opinion is that that fear and grief underlie all other negative emotions. I would have been more accurate to have mentioned those.

      Again, a wonderful diary, and great discussion.
