“Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it”. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Hatred is a destructive and toxic feeling – to your mind, body and soul. It is important to understand that hatred affects only the person who hates rather than the person being hated.
Hatred is one of the most difficult feelings to let go of. Why? Because hatred has a tendency to build itself up and cause your entire being to be consumed by it. Hatred can have a great impact on your health – weakening you physically, mentally and emotionally.
I have found that the most powerful way to combat hatred is to choose love. Choosing to love the enemy – can create magical shifts in your feelings and your experiences.
We have the freedom to choose and you cannot be in two different places at the same time. Acting from a place of love instead of hatred, is choosing to UNDERSTAND your enemy and SEEING good in the brokenness instead of ignoring it.
Hatred has the power to tear your entire being down. When you choose love over hatred, you are setting yourself free from all pain and suffering.
Act from a place of love. Always! Respond to your enemy with a positive and loving energy – and notice how their feelings transmute in the presence of love.
When you radiate love, you give your enemy a chance to rise above their feelings and join you in the place of love and also peace.
"Love your enemies, for they tell you your faults". Benjamin Franklin
Be a nice human.
