A clever response is not always the best response. Silence often says
more than not. Do not be silent to embarrass. Do not be silent to
make a point. Be silent in heart and mind and in voice when you know
you are fighting with the devil. Do not allow him to disrupt your
peace of mind. Back away from the conflict, and allow your internal
peace to remain. Be charitable when others do not understand. As
always, you never know what you do not know. Nor do they when they
act in confounding ways. Often a gentle explanation can help. But
oftentimes, any answer tends to enrage those already mired in internal
conflict. Be patient, and stay calm. I Am with you.
