Looking away because I love Him

Today is the 19th of Kislev, the yahrzeit of the Maggid of Mezritch. I was learning his sefer and he was talking about fearing Hashem and loving Hashem.

It occurred to me that following GYE's Three Second Rule can be an exercise in both. I avert my eyes because of my fear of Hashem and thereby strengthen it. I can affirm my actions and be pleased that I was able to serve Hashem becasue I love Hashem.
