When you take a stand, you are sure to find those who oppose you.  Opposites and opposition are built into your world.  Find a belief, and you will find its opposite.  Ask for someone’s opinion, and you may or may not agree.  If you want others to love you for what you believe in, you may have a challenge.  Could they love you, instead, for who you are?  Who are all of you?  Expressions of the Field of Love.  Beliefs and opinions oft times take you away from this awareness when one does not act in alignment with True Nature, but it lies always beneath the surface.  Take all the stands you want for the experience of doing so, but you will always be Love at the center.
