If we want to participate in the elevation of the state of consciousness of the human race, one must understand the fundamental truth that there is no difference between myself and someone that commits a crime, no matter how terrible this crime may be.
Our state of consciousness is what dictates our actions. Acting in harm of others is not an act of violence, but an act of unconsciousness.
But how to respond in the face of this unconscious acts? Witness… allow… breath… The less we react to this behaviors, the less energy we are giving to them. Showing that we can remain centered in our true being is showing that we can “Be the change you want to see in the World”, as Ghandi said, not by force but by powerful example.
