You know when you’re agitated, anxious or angry; elated, enthusiastic or ecstatic? You always have complete freedom to choose where to place your focus and what to respond to emotionally. Turning the other cheek is removing your focus from the problems you perceive and directing it toward solutions, or toward what makes you feel good. Just as you would divert a child’s attention away from something that isn’t good for them, you can do the same for yourself. After everything is said and done, your quality of life is determined by the vibration of your thoughts, you know?
That’s quite a vibration you have there.
