The real challenge that comes to test your integrity is summarized in this paragraph: It is simple to give into despair, to give up to mistakes and to give out only resentment and hatred.

Let me repeat that again for you. It is simple to give into despair, to give up to mistakes and to give out only resentment and hatred. It is simple. Strong is the one who casts despair into the spaces beyond danger, who conquers the desire to stop trying because errors have been made, who holds no malice toward anyone, and no discourtesy toward the rude.

Grant to all the right to love as he or she can. That's not being done. We're told you can only love if you love the way I want you to love. How boring. To love only according to a book. How boring. How exciting to love from the place of eternal giving. How tremendous to look at someone and inside of you feel that loving for them to such a degree that no matter what they say or do you can find the positive upliftment for yourself. If they find it not, that's their lesson.
