Martin Luther King, Jr., said:
I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too heavy a burden to bear.

On Monday, January 17, 2011 (or on any day), stop. Pause.
Ponder what core values animate your life.
Who can you forgive?
What burdens can you shed?
Where might you encounter the other, and embrace difference or discord?
Will you, could you, take a baby step? Choose love? Decide to stick to love? It is in love and with love that inner and outer freedom seeds, takes root, grows. Please, take time to stop, notice, and pay attention to what you cultivate in your life.
