I live in Nepal. Last night I was walking on a path to go meet some lovely friends at night. I met a man beating his wife on that path and somehow despite him being drunk and abusive I was able to embrace him and shift the situation. We actually cried a little together and hugged and he apologized. It really touched me to see him stop and to approach him with an energy that healed the situation.
Sometimes the best course of action is spontaneous kindness, compassion and love.
