The initial power of negativity is very strong.
It’s like the event horizon of a black hole … once you cross the threshold (by stepping into the circle of anger, for example) it feels like there’s no turning back. You just get sucked in deeper & deeper.
However, if you can pause before crossing over that starting line of negative responses, even just for a second, something happens.
The initial, potential power of negativity wanes.
Compassion, love, and understanding begin to take over.
They start a bit more slowly. They take more time to build up and eclipse the darkness.
But once they do, it continues to get brighter & brighter.
From there, you won’t want to turn back.
