Defensiveness

Our egos make us feel that it is normal human nature to be defensive and retaliatory if someone is attacking us. We feel, deep down, that it is of value to attack back.

When we give into those false feelings about our human nature, our peace of mind is immediately flushed down the toilet.

Our egos want war – of any shape or kind - and as long as we listen to our fearful ego, whose belief is that there is value in attacking others, we will never be peaceful.

We propose an antidote: set aside one day for peace. Do your very best to no longer see value in hurting others and to focus on having peace of mind as your only goal.
