Turn the other cheek

We know you are loving beings. We know that, given an ideal world you would treat everyone with kindness, dignity, and respect. We know that this kind of treatment is what you desire from others as well. At this time on your earth while there is beautiful energy streaming in and fantastic opportunity for those willing to clear their minds and hearts and focus on creating, there is also incredible chaos for those unwilling to take charge of their minds and hearts in this fashion. Whatever is unhealed is being revealed, and thus you are seeing not only great wonder and beauty in the hearts of humanity, but also an acting out of the wounded child within many others.

As loving souls, we know you do not want to perpetuate the pain in the world, and yet so many of you are puzzled about how to deal with unkind behaviors, insensitive words or actions, and at times the poison darts of angry words that those in pain aim in your direction. our advice is simple. in the words of one of the most loving to ever walk the planet earth, "turn the other cheek." Turn away from unkindness. Look to something better. If someone aims anger or unkindness at you, walk away, remain silent, or if you can turn away from their darkness and respond with your love. There is no need to reply at all, unless you can turn to a more loving reality. All you need to say is, "I see you are hurt. I see you are angry. I see you are in pain. Let us talk later when this discussion can be rooted in love." You do not even have to say that out loud. Say it to their souls, and turn the other cheek, walk away or remain silent.

If someone behaves in an unloving or unkind manner, choose to either respond with love or don't respond at all. There is never a need to dignify unkind behavior with a response. There is never a need to "prove a point." If you feel you must make a point do so with no intention other than to express your own point of view. Trying to get an angry person to agree with you is a useless endeavor, and although most of you know this, humanity has engaged in great battles and even wars over such attempts.

So dear ones, you do not have to engage in a dance with the darkness of the world. You can exist in your light. You can turn away from that which is angry and unkind without a need to respond unless absolutely necessary. Even then, you can do so with loving firmness, much as a parent would say to a child throwing a tantrum, "I love you but you must go to your room now."

You are the lights in the world dear ones. Let your light shine!
