“The one thing you can’t take away from me is the way I choose to respond to what you do to me. The last of one’s freedoms is to choose one’s attitude in any given circumstance.” – Viktor Frankl
Of all the freedoms that people fight for, I rarely, if ever hear talk of the most important freedom with which we are all inherently endowed: the freedom to choose one’s attitude in an given circumstance. Man’s redemption is ensured to the degree that he remains true to love.
When he strays from love, whether in reaction to an affront or retaliation for some injury, he abdicates his central responsibility and turns his back on the very core of his soul. When he remains true to love, he opens the channel in himself through which the power of love may flow.
