Fear

Fear stifles love and ultimately imagination. To freely love and be loved (that is, to create a moment or memory with someone), one must stand ground in the presence of fear and its twin, condemnation, and smile in the dark. By the term “imagination” I mean the soul’s ability to freely create with bold, unapologetic pleasure. This courage and joy aid and assist in disarming life’s perils. No wonder that the two greatest gifts God has bestowed unto humanity are love and imagination. The former counsels the latter to be brave, especially when self-doubt and criticism arrive. And, the latter, counsels the former to freely and creatively express itself without pride and prejudice.
