Dealing out hate for hate doesn't work. The fear surrounding it only leads to dis-ease in body, mind, spirit, nation, and culture. The darkness will permeate and engulf without the Light. Einstein said, "Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding."
The only answer is love. In the Light is love. Einstein continued with, "We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them." That thinking is fear and hate. A darkness that spreads like an untreated cancer. As Dr. King said, "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."
I am heartened to see so many people counteracting the fear and hate and xenophobia, which has become so newsworthy but which goes against the tenets of almost all the faiths we supposedly espouse, with shouts of love and understanding. We get to choose the world we live in: “The most important decision we make is whether we believe we live in a friendly or hostile universe.” Einstein again - a scientist and critical thinker, probably one of our greatest. Join me in consistantly listening and learning; finding our individual ways to spread this consciousness of love - not as wallflowers or some airy-fairy wishful thinkers, but as commanders of our destiny.
