Self-Defense

The world is not
free of aggression,
ignorance, fear, greed.
How does one neutralize
violence while honoring
the idea of “do no harm?”

Can we see that there
are no enemies for each
is a part of the Divine
thus part of ourselves?
Self-defense becomes an
act of neutralizing the
threat and avoiding the
conflict. Love and patience
with a good mix of compassion
is the formula of the
highest spiritual defense.
