Love First, Act Second!

Love First Act Second
An Email from Ethan!
Hi Bears
When I went of to Afghanistan I had no idea what I was going to do there. Now it seems that there is no stop for what is possible.

A job that I have tomorrow is that will be the head of a negotiation of the rent of our camp Armadillo with some of the local nationals. They are 5 brothers who are strongly disagreeing with each other about who owns what and what that is worth. Somehow I know that the brothers are going to fight each other tomorrow, but still I feel this relaxed sensation in my stomach - do you want to know why?
I am going to make it my top priority to love each one of them as much as possible! Even if I will cut through in the end to end the deal I will do it lovingly and I feel so strong about it.

By making the "love first and act second"-attitude to most important thing I do here in the camp I am being a Force of Nature:

Intention: I want to love first and act second

Conviction: It feels so great to love first! I am making so many loving friends who loves me for who I am. When I love first and act second I can do no wrong and I am an athlete who are not bound by the law of gravity when I love first and act second!

Daring Action: I share myself in an environment where people traditionally are suppose to hold themselves back! I am starting of new projects that I have never dared trying before. I am loving my nearest family members when they are judgmental and I question the old way of teaching children by judgment.

Passion: I am so excited about the walk in school where 22 kids came today to learn to write their own name. And I am really excited about talking with the 5 brothers tomorrow and help them getting more happy internally with each other.

Persistence: On matter where I go I continue to see areas of my live getting more and more exciting as I bring more love into my life. Love first and act second is my key to heaven where I can see that evil is just a thin shadow of unhappiness and that everyone is doing their best with the beliefs they hold.

Thank you, Bears! Thank you for showing the path where I can choose to be love more then have love - like an attachment on facebook.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!!!!!!

Love and light form Afghanistan.

Response From Bears
Dear Ethan,
Thank you for your gracious word ... but thank you more for the inspiring way you are now choosing to live ... especially as a soldier in Afghanistan. How awesome that you are taking the teachings that you learned at The Option Institute about being a Force Of Nature and using it to create the clear intention to love first and act second. I have no doubt that you are a gift to so many who have come to know you ... my hope and blessings that the dispute between the 5 brothers will be softened and made easier to negotiate because of your presence and love. Ethan, know that I am rooting for you, wanting the best for you and feeling honored for us to reach across a vast portion of the planet to keep cheering for an open heart and a loving hand.
With love and ten thumbs up, Bears
