If you’ve ever faced someone filled with hatred, rage, and contempt, it’s not a pretty picture, and how to deal with it may feel intimidating. But there is a scientific way to respond that protects you from harm and can help the other person find peace of mind.
A first step to success, is to impersonalize the evil and see it as a wrong state of mortal mind that can be corrected with a right state of divine Mind.
In Truth, divine Mind is the only Mind reigning over all of creation, and is omnipresent to maintain order, peace, and love throughout all consciousness and awareness.
The picture of an angry mortal is a lie about God’s spiritual man, and it cries out to be reversed by the spiritual truth about God’s man who is divinely designed to express love and peace.
Rather than letting mortal mind monopolize your attention with a scene of evil, mentally reverse that scene before your eyes, and replace it with God’s reality. See the man of Love’s creating that is full of compassion, understanding, forgiveness, patience, and goodwill. Extinguish the angry thought with tsunami waves of Love.
Mary Baker Eddy wrote, “The way to extract error from mortal mind is to pour in truth through flood-tides of Love”
(Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 201).
Have no fear of hatred. Face it fearlessly with Love and ensure its demise.
