There seems to be a lot of negativity in the world today. There is war. There is famine. There is disease. There is political unrest. Our souls long for peace, harmony, and love… but that’s not what many people experience. Many well-intentioned people seek to eliminate the sources of conflict that they face. This often takes the form of anti-war rallies and other activism. But sadly, fighting negativity with negativity doesn’t solve the problem.
Love is the most powerful weapon. Love is more powerful than the forces of anger and negativity. Love can drive those negative feelings and emotions away and replace them with peace and harmony.
With love, we can wipe out hatred, violence, greed, and jealousy. Using negativity to fight negativity only continues the cycle. The only way to wash away the darkness is by shining the light of love upon it.
This is true of each one of us internally. We can’t resolve conflicts within ourselves with negativity. We need to replace it with love.
It’s also true of conflicts with others. Whether it is your neighbor, your colleague, or a family member, if you’re facing negativity, respond with love. Love will wash away the hostility and open the possibility of peace and harmony.
This is even true of world conflicts. We are in the middle of a divisive election season in the United States. And far worse troubles are occurring throughout the world, such as war, famine, and disease. Those conflicts will never be won with violence and negativity. Only love can wipe away decades of hatred and anger.
I want to challenge you to let love restore broken relationships and difficult situations. Make a commitment to yourself that when faced with negativity, you will respond with love. It isn’t just what you say, it’s how you think and feel. Anger and other negative emotions send out powerful vibrations into the world even when you don’t say or do anything. Instead of allowing yourself to be filled with this negativity, breathe in love like a breath of fresh air. This love will wipe away the anger and hostility you encounter and will renew relationships and refresh your soul.
We were made for love, not for anger, greed, and hatred. Love is your most powerful weapon, and love will help you discover a life of peace and harmony. If you embrace love and extend that love to others, you will be making the world a better place for you and for all those in your path.
Have a wonderful, peaceful day.
Many blessings to you!
