Love and kindness are central, core beliefs deeply ingrained in you. They are also guidelines for how to behave. When you choose to stay true to Me and My way of life, it has to be centered on love, kindness, and forgiveness. You cannot do this completely on your own, -especially on murky waters that have been stirred by hurt and feel dark and scary. In stormy times like that, it isn’t safe to be out in a boat by yourself. Stay on shore with Me for a while as we sort out the hurt, fear, and difficult emotions. I will take you back out to sea when the water is calmer. Together we can figure out how to handle difficult encounters with others in a way that is rooted in dignity, respect, and love.
