Is there Barbed Wire in your Life?





is there barbed wire in your life?


is their the presence of sharp words


wounding actions


painful encounters?..


yes, life can present the full spectrum of emotional

aggressiveness that seeks to dominate and


diminish?..


and can you


provide for yourself


the deeply comfortable and

of unskillful and unkind


words and


action


that might exist in your midst
