Try this exercise today. At some stage, someone will send you a negative message, a critical comment, a subtle dig. Imagine it comes towards you as a photon torpedo, but one foot away it encounters a protective force field made up of your radiant power. This is the field of protective energy that is being powered by the might of your inner peace. As the invisible but very real torpedo meets the field, it deflects away and fizzles out against the wall. You remain unmoved and untouched. You glance momentarily but directly into the eyes of the other and, with a quiet and peaceful smile, you send them a mini photon torpedo of your own, carrying a very clear and compassionate message, which says, "Nice try."
