Every bit of energy that exists has always been present, was there at the beginning, is part of the Divine Whole. We are at heart, One. Our path is unique, and that`s a good thing. Yet we must remember when we hear criticism, it is coming from the perspective of those doing the criticizing. We cannot take advice from the turtles on how best to eat, if we are giraffes. It doesn`t make the turtles wrong, or bad. It just means they are right for them. Peace begins where we stand. In our own consciousness. We must choose to bring it. To be it. To extend it in all situations.
