I then realized that Fear and Love are just varying degrees of the same element: emotion.

So, my questions to you are:
Can one exist in that place of balance at all times? How?
Have you found that balance in all things?
If not, do you only find it occasionally? And if so, when do you find it?
If you exist in extreme love, do you still feel fear?
If you exist in extreme fear, do you still feel love?

i like this one the best as i feel it is where we as a species need to get:
Imagine, if you will, an infinite set of number lines. At the ends of each are an infinite number of polar opposites; Love and fear, good and bad, rich and poor, ad infinitum. Between these opposites, which are the foundations of notions like duality, realize instead that there are infinite 'shades of grey' so to speak. i think this lends itself to the idea, not of duality, but of unity.
The Oneness of everything.

I do think its possible to live in that balance at all times. If one keeps the awareness of self above our reactional nature I guess you can then level the playing field of our emotions in any given circumstances, then consequently have a clearer mind to make more rational decisions. On the other hand it might be nearly impossible for excessive and impulsive people to ever get there as their personality is well defined by these traits...
As to the how, the way I see it, if communication is a vital part of human behavior then communication with yourself is just as vital. You know...keep that internal dialogue going
About the relation of both extremes in the balance, I'm thinking that if you take each emotions for what they are, negative and positive then being at their peak you simply experience it to the fullest of its capacity. Someone living in extreme fear will end up being afraid of love and someone in total love will end up loving and enjoying fear.

I did not feel fear, though.
I asked myself, “What do I Fear?”
I immediately answered myself with, “Love.”

u keep thinking that smthg is bc of another thing, u dont believe in truth, when truth exist and existence is true, then anything is real and what is not real is a lie
truth is freedom superior value and truth existence is freedom reality
peace that u mean is simply freedom out of truth
when constant is objective, then conscious peace is normal fact out of it, as individual freedom out of knowing that all is right since constant value
love that u mean, is the positive free drive, when freedom is superior value, then its sense is to realize absolute as positive thing, so the drive to superior objective as positive fact is normal
fear in ur means being opposite to love, is the negative stillness from feeling being possessed by another freedom meaning u as a thing proving its superiority
the more u r individually free the more ur fear is true, which means that u r really possessed or abused by another freedom for its superiority in opposition to truth superiority, what is truly superior is free so would never possess another to mean being free superior possessor of objective thing
the less u r individually free the more ur fear is a lie, meaning ur will to pretend being superior freedom above things
so u r actually fearing that another would appear superior in truth so fearing to face ur fact being inferior freedom that cant move if it is not supported up by source and down by stepping on any as thing
truth existence is freedom reality bc then anything is its reality that has nothing to do with anything else even its own same kind, each is its most superior individual free reality
what u dont seem to know, is that freedom is absolute superiority,, only absolute can b constant objective, while absolute is only when a point is out free as superior to absolute reality, its pik level
and that level is what become existing from becoming absolute too, individual freedom superiority showed being an absolute fact as objective perspective
so existence is ascensional sense since truth is absolute superiority then always it will be real then more superior freedom will exist
balance that u mean, is to manage the contradiction of moving absolutely free and standing absolutely still, seeing the advantages of staying still from incomes of being objective reality, and advantages of moving free from outcomes of acting individually being all
freedom there is no balance to manage, when freedom is the truth then it is the exclusive constant any and everywhere, free move or free stand are relative while freedom abstraction is absolute reality so true existence

OP I have been analyzing this very subject for quite some time now especially since I began my spiritual journey. I have been trying to reach this middle ground. It is a constant war heart vs mind. And me being an empath, doesn't make the process any easier since I have to deal with negativity every morning from other people in the house i live in. I become like a sponge and become heavily charged in negative emotions that people with a high sense can literally feel my energy across the world.
I posted a similar topic, only this one based on the Yin yang, left brain right brain. (check it out, maybe you can find out something I havent yet.
On the topic, I have been going through a very tough moment. Trying to reach the peaceful state of mind. But my focus tends to shift everytime a negative event occurs. This triggers something within me, that causes fear and paranoia.
A secret not many people know of me (irl), is that when this fear kicks in, i tend to push people away from my comfort zone which causes me to sabotage anything from relationships to friendships. I then later regret it and try and fix, but to no avail. The damage was done and all I could do was just accept it and let go. Sometimes I do admit on becoming relieved, but this tends to get me depressed and feeling lonely.
The times I have let go ironically the person does come back. But this is still theory and could just be coincedental. But when you think about it. It all boils down to "Faith" and following the flow.
I regret some of my actions. But what can I do? Oh I was also diagnosed with mild autism some time back. That doesnt help much either lol.

I know love and I don't fear love at all, I don't fear getting hurt from love and being depressed, I don't fear rejoicing in happiness when I am bathing in the emotion of love.
I fear two things, life and people.
Life I cannot deal with so I communicate with the God of the bible which I have concluded has the best evidence, but there isn't a way for me to know if my attempts are successful.
People is something that I deal with and work with every hour of the day every day of the week. People will not tell you that they are scared of each other I promise, but it is the recognization of fear that enables me to face the fear, enables me to move forward and work on he fear. An example is that if you see a person coming in public from any distance, walk up to the person and ask them how they are doing and where they are from. Initially in your communication there may be a change of breath, this is because usually people are too sacred to walk up to each other and talk to each other, and mostly the reason is because they do not know how to talk, they do not know the proper things to say to start a conversation with a stranger.

NNOOOOO pitie dont involve me in ur rubbish head
u r saying nothing while nothing dont exist and while truth exist, shame on u, how dare u think that u think from zero everything as if u r able to, even truth freedom which is always there from the begining cannot invent any
even satan wont dare say what u r selling to justify nothing being everything
existence is exclusively about truth becoming fully objective, then freedom superiority is absolute individuality so equal individuals rights making reality freedom evolution in constancy terms of freedom superiority, as long as it follow true existence objective superiority rights
absolute is not positive, that u can use to justify negative
absolute is exclusively to objective superiority so true freedom fact
what u mean to justify satanic freedom as existing too stolen from truth knowledge being freedom superiority, the fact remain then that not any freedom is true
truth is freedom in concept, but then free sense that u get for granted is not u so u dont have an individual free right, while u could also not be a relative freedom of truth, which is proven everywhere from evil freedom and life able clearly to abuse as totally independant upon freedom truth
Evil could not exist without Good. Just as Good could not exist without Evil. We are free to choose Good or Evil or a combination of Good and Evil. This is because Good + Evil = One.
evil is not the opposition to nianiania good and nicy relatives, we are serious here about truth facts and concepts known for free reality constancies over true objective existence in absolute free terms
it is obvious that u r meaning to guess possibilities of existing, but who r u by doing or meaning that?? arent u smthg sure n definitive smwhere ??? when u dont admit the least concept of truth word means, then stop using that word, and jump on ur disgusting wills to justify alone
u cant use absolute anyways for ur means, that is why u cant even say a word to nothing
I don't even know what you are referring to at this point... but I am not presenting this as a religion - I am presenting it as a theory.
crazy religious gatherings crap
keep believing that u r sponsored to appear the smartest humans, i dont care about the opposite fact of ur appearance when a true word is around, wat i care about is the hell u r opening in showing the inacceptable objective freedom u r in absolute terms refering to as existence

No need to fear. Love can be described many ways but love of God is the highest realization because one comes into contact with mans true nature. That thou art.
u cannot think differently the reality of everything, when u r not even nothing, u r always urself one freedom so outside of everything, how dare u impose a perspective of everything objective being different to another u r clearly saying that there is no truth ever and stop daring calling a whole what u mean it in opposite terms merde infinitly, how dare u do that?? a whole is a reality of same thing, an objective value it is disgusting ur means behind, u r imposing that there is no objective value there is never constant facts or realities there is never free absolute u r imposing management and creations as the only reason of objective thing, disgusting head that dont respect the value of objective being absolute superiority how could u mean all superiority as creations wills and present powerful stands when u reject the least base of superiority reference
while it is obvious that u think only of wills, as if saying or reacting is always bc of smthg else, u r not free to offend others by reversing their words u obviously dont have the least presence of freedom right, freedom is never about proving being superior to smthg objective, when freedom is all about being able to justify its own claims alone u obviously dont mean but using everything to suit urself superiority by insisting on everything conception in opposite terms then u r a contradiction and never someone, so dont ask for others respect or claim any right
anyways fear is not the opposition to love, things oppositions are of equal value but in different free realisation while fear is absolute inferior state, when love is absolute superior state through love the subjective freedom is positive while also supported from recognizing objective freedom else in fear the subject has no energy at all while it is agravated by the fact that it cant see another thing existing objectively u r inventing in ur head a sense of balance as zero out of absolute inferiority and absolute subjective superiority, so u mean negative inferiority, which is evil realms from taking advantage of subjective superior perspective to support an absolute inferior stand

it is the pain that great love brings me that causes me fear. It is those uncertainties and insecurities and lack of control that cause me fear.
I have learned to accept the love, and I have learned to accept the pain. So, while I accept love, I still fear it. But, to me, the fear is more like respect. I respect that love and its purpose, though I feel pain as a result. I respect the pain and its purpose, because I must feel pain (and fear) in order to feel love.
I have also seen this. It is strange and marvelous how much a smile can change an interaction. It is strange and wonderful how people will tell you their life stories just because you stopped to acknowledge them as fellow travelers in the journey of life.
