Love everyone who approaches, even your apparent adversaries. Love in all directions, and when you pray, focus wordlessly on Love.
What's the alternative?
If you honor powerful people, you might get a promotion, a vacation home, and a Lexus. But you might lose infinite joy - compared to which this life is but the purest distillation of suffering.
So stay as innocent as a child and the universe will take care of you. Maybe the universe will even bring Lexuses (Lexi?) right to your doorstep.
The point is, don't fret about this so-called life, and the universe will bring you what you need.
Think of it this way:
Daisies don't get spa therapy, but haven't you heard the expression, "fresh as a daisy?" Larks don't attend seminars on workplace stress, but haven't you heard the expression, "happy as a lark?"
Infinite joy is your birthright, but you can't receive it if your hands are full.
Ask, and it is given; seek, and you will find; knock, and it is opened for you. Love is all around you, and you can have it if you let yourself in.
Spiritual seekers are seeking the day after which nothing was ever the same again. I tell you, that day is today.
