We are in response mode when filled with faith and reaction mode when filled with fear.

Fear keeps us in a state of agitation, on the defense, in the past or out there somewhere in the future.   Faith keeps us in the present, calmly trusting, not taking anything personally.   Everything that irritates us, reminds Dr. Carl Jung, can lead us to a better understanding of ourselves – if we’re looking and listening.

So, the next time you are confronted with an unwanted something or someone and your heart begins to race ask, “Am I in the present filled with faith, in the past or future filled with fear?”  Then, take a deep breath and listen.
