Blessing for today ~ Light and Love ~
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. ~ Martin Luther King, Jr. ~
The negativity and unfairness around us truly cannot be transformed by mirroring the undesired actions and emotions with like actions and emotions. The light of pure unconditional love is transformative. We are all equal in the light, and all deserving of love from one another. Has your neighbor offended you? First, love him. Has someone in your life treated you unfairly? First, love her. When the glow of brotherly love gleams from our hearts, illumination falls upon us all. Shine your light. Those around you will be illuminated or they will be repelled as they cling to darkness.
Will you shine your light of love today?
