“Now I tell you this: The essence of love is freedom. Anyone who says they love you, and that they are looking out for you, will grant you freedom. It is as simple as that. You do not have to look further or deeper for more sophisticated understanding.
I have told you before and I will tell you again. There are only two energies at the core of the human experience: love and fear. Love grants freedom, fear takes it away. Love opens up, fear closes down. Love invites full expression, fear punishes it.
By this measure you can know whether someone is loving you, or fearing you. Do not look to what they say. Look to what they do.”
God, as spoken to Neale Donald Walsch, in “Communion with God”
