“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
~ Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.
Today is the official celebratory day of a man who was assassinated to put an end to his amazing teachings and work.
The concept expressed by these words is one I try to share with everyone as often as I can – in a world full of confusion, ignorance, and terror, most have the tendency to fear, blame, and oppose those they do not agree with.
But fear and opposition will never create the world of peace and harmony we all desire – the only path they lead to is one of growing separatism and discord.
To truly create the world we say we desire to live in – one without greed, without needless suffering, where there is enough for everyone to live comfortably and in health – we must learn to love and to heal those whose lights within have gone dim.
We will create a world of love and of light when we ourselves, each and every one of us, chooses to BE that love and light with every fiber of our being.
Have a lovely Monday! xo
