Emotional choice shapes emotional experience. The energies we choose to release to those around us are what we will feel reflected back upon us.

You radiate 
The energies
You possess.
Only you
Can choose
What to release,
How to feel.
Give love,
Feel love.
Give joy,
Feel joy.
Give peace,
Feel peace.
Give hate,
And yes,
You will
Feel that, too.

Choose wisely.
