Metaphysically speaking love and hate are two sides of the same coin. They may seen like opposites, but in fact they both involve high emotion, obsession and attachment.

what a definition of love!? i think you make confusion with passion which can become egotistic and destructive indeed.

OP I think you are mixing up your religious philosophies here. You are referring to Buddhism but using the Hindu definition of Karma (i.e. paying for deeds in a past life).
Buddhism = can change his way of thinking in one lifetime if he chooses to do so
Hindu’s believe in the “wheel of karma” which dictates the path of multiple lifetimes.

If you were punished with sexual abuse then I would say: no! You were most definitely not brought up in a Christian home.

The way I see it most people who suffer emmence life-trauma fit into one of two catagories ... 'sinkers' and 'swimmers' ! And whatever choice the individual chooses you need to know that every single person who has been in a position like yours (or mine), including those who have suffered more than us (and believe me there are many), all have the ability to become a 'swimmer'.
But let me tell you a little secret ... without my awful experiences and all the effort involved, I would not be this person I am now. I turned the negativity of all that had gone before into strength ... and you can too.
If you want to chat or ask me anything send me a u2u. Woody

Part of the problem of people who get hurt in this life or suffer in any way or form comes from the astral entities (dead people) who crave on the energy we loose when we "think" or experience something.
When people will realize that that thoughts do not eminate from our brain, but from another dimension of ourselves, they'll start to understand the extent of the manipulation that is going on. Manipulation is everywhere...
From birth, school, jobs, friends, and finally, by the memory of the human race.

This is really hard for me ....
That day I decided I would forgive myself ...but first I had to forgive those who wronged me
I have since found out that about 4 out of 5 of my friends have also been molested ...so this is more common than many are even aware of ..(they are all about my age )
You are not alone in what you have been through ...I dont think that makes it any easier for you ...but I wanted you to know that it can be used for the good

Should you forgive them? No, never. Never forgive a rotten sob--what have they done to deserve it? It is not your duty to forgive, and you'll find it alot easier to move on and be helpful to others if you stop toiling over this one...
