A Warrior (of Light) knows that an angel and a devil are both competing for his sword hand

 

 

The devil says: “You will weaken. You will not know exactly when. You are afraid.”

The angel says: “You will weaken. You will not know exactly when. You are afraid.”

The Warrior is surprised. Both the angel and the devil have said the same thing.

The devil continues: “Let me help you.”

And the angel says: “I will help you.” 

At that moment the Warrior understands the difference.

The words may be the same but these two allies are completely different.

And he chooses the angel’s hand.

Martin Luther King Jr. and The Power of L.O.V.E

 I believe that is where his strength came from:

“Now there is a final reason I think that Jesus says, ”LOVE your enemies.“
It is this: that LOVE has within it a redemptive power.
And there is a power there that eventually transforms individuals. Just keep being friendly to that person.
Just keep loving them, and they can’t stand it too long.
Oh, they react in many ways in the beginning. They react with guilt feelings, and sometimes they’ll hate you a little more at that transition period, but just keep loving them.
And by the power of your LOVE they will break down under the load.
That’s LOVE, you see. It is redemptive, and this is why Jesus says LOVE.
There’s something about LOVE that builds up and is creative.
There is something about hate that tears down and is destructive. So LOVE your enemies.”

– Martin Luther King Jr.

In compassion and grace, be like the sun.
In concealing other’s faults, be like the night.
In anger and fury, be like dead.
In modesty and humility, be like the earth.
In tolerance, be like the sea.
Either appear as you are, or be as you appear.
