Only Love Can Drive Out Hate

I’ve devoted this month’s blog entry to the memory of legendary civil rights leader and Nobel Peace Prize winner, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. since January was the month in which he was born.  There’s no doubt in my mind that he was a major lightworker who was placed on this Earth to help humanity.  While he was able to do a great deal to move society forward, there’s still a lot more to do.

Dr. King’s compelling and inspiring words from the 1960’s still have major significance now.  He spoke about how love was the answer to bringing peace to our world.  Love is still the answer, and the time has come for everyone to realize that.  There's an intensifying hatefulness pervading society, and it's so disheartening.  I yearn to see people be more kind and compassionate toward one another regardless of what’s going on in the world.

I’ve had friends tell me that people they have been friends with for thirty or more years are “unfriending” them over political comments.  People seem to have lost their common sense as to what’s really important.  Our friendships are more important than political opinions.  We don’t have to agree on everything to be friends.  We can agree to disagree and continue to love what we love about each other – the things that brought us together in the first place. 

In this very challenging time in which we live, please try to be more understanding of one another’s feelings and viewpoints, resist the urge to spew hatred toward your fellow human beings, be respectful, help each other, make things better, and realize that we’re all on this journey together. 

I’m hoping the divisiveness that we’re going through is the darkest part of the tunnel before we come out to the light.  We are all a part of each other.  While we are physically in separate bodies, the feelings within our hearts and and the thoughts within our minds are part of the collective consciousness of God.  Love truly is the answer.

Dr. King said it best:

“Darkness can't drive out darkness; only light can do that.  Hate can't drive
 out hate; only love can do that.”

Dr. King, thank you for all that you did.  Please know that your fellow lightworkers are here to help do your work, help awaken humanity, and help fulfill God’s desire for all of us to live in peace.

Please awaken to the Divine spark of love and light that is at the core of each and every one of you, and recognize this commonality in one another.  We can create a ripple effect of love and light throughout the world that will raise the consciousness of humanity.  While it may be difficult at times, do your best to hold love in your heart and look for the light in everyone.

With love, light, and angel blessings,


Michelle
