Dear Teal, please don't be upset. The hate and anger you get is a measure of how effective you are at challenging people who need someone to tell them what to think, what to do and how to live. You make people think for themselves, look at themselves and help them open up to the opportunities in their lives to grow and change. You don't tell people what to think (brainwashing) you teach people how to think for themselves and find their authentic selves (enlightenment). Keep up the good work. Be Blessed, you are a blessing to us all, even those who hate you!
