Respond to all problems with love. It is the only way to find true peace. Yes, you always have a choice. Revert to the lower vibrations and lash out in self-protection, but what does that do for you? It only builds a wall of separation around you. Watch your thoughts carefully. If you find yourself clenching a fist and walling off your heart, your thoughts are the cause of this—not the actions of another. Step back away from the role of a solitary soldier and watch the battle scene from afar. What point is there in this scene? Who will come out the winner? Neither, as long as they do not walk off arm in arm.

Respond only with love—your greatest weapon against darkness—your only enemy.
