Many of you are wondering what to do given the recent attacks in Paris and other cities such as Beirut. These events can make us feel angry, discouraged and helpless. We need to align our actions with our hearts.
Martin Luther King said, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” If you look at your own life you will see that those words ring true.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
We can chose how we relate to others, those who are different from us, those who are angry and lashing out. Anger and violence do not solve the problem, they only perpetuate and spread the suffering.
Choose love before you say or do anything. Help to heal the root problem so that lashing out is unnecessary. Let’s all choose to be part of the solution.
