A resolution points to a breakthrough, but decisive action is necessary. If you diligently hold your ground and ward off negative tendencies or bad influences, good will prevail.
The persistence of evil is a factor in human affairs; just when you think it has been eradicated, it will pop up again, sprouting through some crack in the pavement of decent society. Evil need not take extravagant forms, such as those exhibited in Nazi Germany. Garden-variety lies and deceit are more common and persistent, but should be rooted out just as diligently. One must be determined against negativity — whether in one’s social or professional life, or in one’s own soul. In either case, certain rules must be followed for the effort to succeed.
The first rule: Do not compromise with evil. Negative actions must be identified for what they are, and quickly discredited. The second: One cannot successfully resist negativity on its own terms. Positive alternatives that lead away from the source of the problem are more successful and appropriate than trying to counter negativity with raw power. The third rule: The means used to counter negativity must be consistent with the end to be achieved. One cannot stop the spreading of lies by spreading more of them.
By adding to the good elements of a situation, one automatically diminishes the bad. This is the only way in which to successfully battle negativity. The time calls for consistent self-awareness and sharing one’s bounty and virtue with others.
