What the world needs now is Love, Sweet Love … truer words have never been sung! It’s really simple, if we react to hate with hate, we will get more hate, anger breeds anger, vengefulness, more in return. The pattern must be broken. Patterns repeat and dynamics play out whether on a small or large scale. I have a small personal story to illustrate the power of this law of attraction.
I was working in my husband’s office, responding to a credit chargeback where a patient was questioning part of her bill. Always looking for a win/win resolution, I faithfully communicated with the patient and the credit company to sort out the details. To keep the patient happy, we were willing to refund the challenged amount which was about fifteen percent of the total bill. The credit company, following internal protocol, ultimately decided instead to invalidate the entire amount, which was considerable and had a meaningful impact on our office finances.
I was struck livid (LIVID!!!!) by the unfairness of their decision and unwillingness to respond to reason. I could not release the anger I felt, it overtook my consciousness. For days, every time I thought about what had transpired, fury bubbled up inside of me and flowed out in the kind of language I’m not usually known for displaying.
A few days later, I was driving to work, not in any sort of hurry, peacefully listening to the radio when I heard sirens coming up behind me and looked in my rearview mirror to see a police car, lights flashing, barreling down the hill behind me and several other cars. I immediately pulled over as did the others, thinking the police car was on the way to some incident up ahead. To my complete shock, the car came to a screeching halt right next to me. The policewoman rolled down her window and started screaming at me with I must say the same intensity I had exhibited when I got that phone call from the credit company informing me of that chargeback. I immediately felt the connection between those two incidents.
I know I drew that anger to me, just like I believe we will continue to draw terrorism to us if we react with more violence. And I believe we can turn the negativity around if everyone pulls together to raise our collective vibration out of the depths and into love and beyond. I don’t know precisely how this will work, but I know the Universe, the Divine, God, our higher selves, or whatever you want to call it, knows how. All we need do is surrender to that level of guidance and we will be shown the way. May it be so.
