Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes you may think it doesn’t, especially if you find yourself in a midst of a bitter quarrel, as it happened to me recently. And I was stunned.

I wondered what was happening to me. How can I handle this situation?

How can I get out of it? Here was my integrity being challenged. What was I to do? Have you ever found yourself in such a situation?

Of course you have. How did you handle it? Were blows exchanged? You know in every quarrel underneath looms a fight. And this is what I wanted to avoid. Not that I’m a coward.

I’m not. It is just that I don’t like fighting. I hate it. It leads to arrogance. It leads to hurt. And what are you going to gain by it?

Admiration? Maybe. From whom? From people like you.

From people that like to defend their integrity. Yeah, this is what it is all about. Most of us do not like to be undermined. As soon as one does, it calls for action. And that action means defending your integrity.

What does integrity mean? I guess it means all those things you think you are. And what are you? Important. Great. You live in high places.

When there are gatherings you are called to the front.

And when that is going to be challenged, don’t allow it. Defend it at all costs. If it means fistfights, do that. Otherwise you are not a man. You are a coward. You hear them talking about cowards?

“I am not a coward!” they say. What does that mean? It means I am ready to play dirt. And life is not about that. It isn’t really. It is not about fights. We are one. Ha, ha, ha, someone may say.

Now we are talking. You say we are one. How? Do you want to know? I wish you did, because I can’t see your face. But I will tell you. It is simple. We are all nice. We are all born to be nice.

But then along the way something happens. A voice in the head creeps in. And what it says to you are lies. It says things like you are better than others. You are great. You are important.

There is no one like you. All people should bow down to you. Those that don’t should be called to order. Why are they not bowing down to you? Don’t they see that you are important?

Such are the lies of the voice. You’ve got to see through it. And bring it to order. And take it out of your mind. We are one. That’s all. Nothing else. No one is important than the other. We all are. Stay positive.
