We grew up learning various responses to playground adversaries; ”sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me” was one of the most popular. We know that words carry much power to hurt or help. There is much power in what we do and what we say. There is also much power in what we think. Our heart carries a duality of emotion. We happily acknowledge that love “comes from the heart.” But living in the same chamber as love, we find what might be referred to as a “darker” emotion; evil. The challenge we face as humans is to tip the scales of our hearts towards love. Though there are no easy answers, we can begin by examining our thoughts, words and deeds.
