Meditate on the insight of Sufi masters who teach: "In dealing with the other, do what is right. Protect yourself. Don't allow yourself to be abused. But please do not leave the other person's being out of your heart." We are asked to make a distinction between behavior and being. A person's behavior might be evil, but a person's being is sacred and inviolable. It is filled with Christ Nature, Buddha Nature, Elohim Nature, Allah Nature, Krishna Nature. Just keeping this discernment in mind in our speech and actions has the power to shift heaven and earth.
