But this is the easy part–being nice to those who are first nice to us. The real issue is how to treat those who are not first nice to us–those who are abrasive or unkind or difficult or unappealing…. If we are truly on a spiritual path–the path of Love–then the question for us is how are we to treat those who are difficult to deal with or who are unkind to us? . . .
