Who Am I?

Here is a simple and very effective method for putting one’s life in proper perspective.

Before going to bed, take a small notebook and open it to a double page. Write the day and date at the top of the spread.

On the left hand page write the title: Fear.

On the right hand page write the title: Love.

Now, briefly note down all your actions that day, attributing their motivation to either Fear or Love.  No need to write about your thoughts or feelings, only what you actually did.

Just as a mountain is made up of a gazillion grains of dust, so our lives are composed of what we do in each moment. What we do is who we are. When it’s all boiled down, all of our actions are motivated either by fear, or by love. A clue: if it ain't love, then it's probably fear. If you’re still not sure about the motivation behind a particular action, write it on both pages.

Do this every day for a week. Let me know what happens.
