    DANCE to ANGER DANCE to LOVE!

    How should one react in the face of anger?
    Is seems easier to give back hate for hate, eye for eye,
    limb for limb: you hurt me, I hurt you!
    but is that not rather short-sighted?
    Do we not learn from our mistakes?

    To return harm for harm... and possibly a bit more!
    has been the way of things for thousands of years,
    and such a ‘solution’ even been casually proposed
    within the written pages of man’s wisdom.
    Thus has unconditional love been given such short shrift
    and thus have wars and violence flourished!

    The master, Jesus, once taught that when struck on one cheek,
    one should present the other as well.
    Not very practical, we might be forgiven for thinking,
    yet why not?

    If love truly is the glue of the cosmos;
    if all energy is love, however disguised,
    do we know of a better way to implant it firmly
    within the daily routine of our short lives?
    a better way to end the violence we claim to abhor?

    On Earth, love expresses as best it can--
    it is but energy; but God in experience:
    if the expression I receive is inappropriate,
    can I not transmute it back into pure love?
    Why maintain a negative balance
    when the means to cancel the debt are available...
    freely to all?

    ONE MUST NOT

    FIGHT EYE 2 EYE
    HOLD HATE IN PLACE
    OF FAITH BUT SMILE
    YET PAIN IS A SHAME
    WE FEEL AND HAVE TO DEAL WITH
    BUT LIF DEALS US THIS STRIFF PRAYER
    IS THE KEY !!

    WE PRAY FOR UNDERSTANDING!

    i ENJOYED THE READ IMMENSELY AND TO IT I SAY
    EACH DAY WE MUST GO DAILY IN PRAYER
    AND NOT DISPAIR WHEN IT SEEMS
    THAT THERE IS ANGER LOVE STILL ABIDES THERE
    FOR GOD IS LOVE AND GOD IS EVERYWHERE!

    it is said that anger is a wasted emotion that only hides a truer emotion...when we say we are angry we are really disguising the fact that we are hurt, disappointed, frustrated etc...and because we cannot deal with these emotions we show it in anger...

    and I agree, to return the emotion, hate for hate, anger for anger, or any negative emtion, only begets more of same...

    the only emotions which have a positive effect when they are returned are positive emotions..love, care, understanding...

    I like the way you always evoke the reader of your work to think deeply..I am a fan...
