If it is, confirm it and bring it ever more fully into your life. If it not, then you have an opportunity to change around what you believe, what you think you know, and how you are going to choose to act or not act as a result. When I first heard the news I mentioned above, I was frustrated that again those in power are acting with a pattern that has been consistent throughout government: we have someone we consider an enemy for whatever reason we attach to that person, and because of this reason we justify our action to cause the...
