Notice your hobbies are fun, you excel at it and you enjoy doing it?
Doing something out of love makes all the difference coz we put our heart and soul into doing it. We have fun in the process and more often than not, we are good at it and we do it with good intentions.
Doing something out of fear, repression or greed, has the opposite effect. We worry, we hate doing it and most often, we end up hating ourselves, causing more pain and suffering.
So why don’t we do things that we love and love what we do?
PS: on the other hand, it is fine to NOT do something because fear. If fear stops you from doing it, then you will do no harm at all.
