How many times have you walked into a situation where you could almost taste the tension? There are times when the vibrations being passed between people are fraught with powerful emotions. Too many of us are open channels - and can be caught off guard.
It reminds me of the hummingbirds that remain in our neighborhood throughout the migration of other birds. They are in our yard and drink from our feeders for such a long time, they begin to feel really territorial. They have been known to come to our window and squawk angrily, looking directly at us, and we simply know they are complaining that the sugar water is gone, or we've allowed too many other hummers access to their source.
BUT, if we "take on the armor" of God before we step into any situation, we can already be channeling God's Work when we are confronted with vibrations that are not of peace and love. And then we simply rely on God's armor-energies as they wrap around us - - we breathe in God's healing peace and we breathe out God's calming love.
The hummingbirds that frequent the feeders at our daughter's home near Yosemite, treat each other in a totally different way. There are so many of them, they may have decided it was not worth fighting small battles. If two of them square off and do their aerial maneuvers, the others will descend to claim the sugar water for themselves. So they behave peaceably, sitting as many as eight to a feeder... AND their voices are totally different, too. They chirp and twitter among themselves.
We only need to lift our thoughts... and we are God's love and peace in action... treating others as we would want them to treat us.
This is possible on a broader scale. It is possible for the political leaders of our world to see that there is enough sugar water to go around, if we learn to behave as if we are all armored in God's peace and love... it could become true.
