Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs – even ones that oppose your own. Some adopt a ‘live and let live’ attitude, others argue with integrity, and others will try to un-seat you by using hate-speech and other inflammatory tactics.
My approach to this is simple. Today, someone demanded that my beliefs were wrong and they had to be challenged. I just said sure – Go right ahead. But I don’t feel the need to defend them. For when you have faith, no amount of doubt can make you believe otherwise.
What others may say about you or your faith is irrelevant. All that matters is what you feel about it.
I feel as though faith-based conflicts will be on the rise when Mars enters Scorpio (the house of Deep Esoteric Wisdom and one aspect of Soul-Penetrating Spiritual Insight) on the 26th of July (tomorrow).
Please keep this principle of balance in mind, as best you can. And know that even those who hate – and at their core, feel threathened by – what you stand for are here to teach you something.
Just smile, walk away, and wish them well – block them if you feel the need to (if they’re online) – and carry on having a wonderful day.
Best. Response. Ever.
