The power to change the world lies with you. When you see and hear anger and prejudice filling the media or even some of the people you know, it is important to resist going to war with the darkness. War itself, whether it is physical or intellectual, is not the antidote for darkness. Rather, it is the conscious choice to use your intention and your actions to increase the light in the world that will ultimately defeat darkness. Conscious use of your personal energy is imperative now. We want to change the world, but not through war–through love and peace.
