“Only Light Can Do That”

The shock of malice and injustice is always difficult to bear. We want to annihilate the experience and those who caused it.

It takes power and a stretch of our capabilities not to return evil for evil when we have been wronged.

Yet, stretching our ability to love our enemies helps us (physically and emotionally) in the long run.*

Or, we can yield to our passions and…

  • Pay later for doing so (emotionally and physically)
  • Contribute to the repetition of the cycle of hatred
  • Plant and reap more fear and anxiety

*Not advocating being a doormat. Being a powerful light is anything but a doormat.
