Our mission is not to plant light into darkness; our mission is to expand the light such that no darkness remains. Focus upon that which is true and beautiful and good. Be not concerned over ugliness. The enhancement of righteousness automatically displaces the evils of the world. I know there are personalities who are distrustful of this approach, for it is too passive. It does not confront injustice. But, my friend, confrontation is not the way of the Father. Love is the way of the Father. Amplification of love will crowd out all injustice. Confrontation perpetuates the same mistakes and fosters the same hatred. Continue being brave. Stand for the light. Express love. You are endowed with the very reality these words represent. - Michael
