And then you wake in the middle of the night, uncontrolled frightening and violent emotions ravishing your mind, body and soul. Your body in full fight or flight response due to a foul nightmare that at the moment of waking slips from your mind.
You want me to do what?
Between your post and mine you may get a feel for the theory and the reality.
Nice post, quite lovely and I hope it does indeed help someone as it well might. For me, thank you for trying.

ok... so im not the only one that can't find the riddle....
An old Grandfather said to his grandson, who came to him with anger at a friend who had done him an injustice:
“”Let me tell you a story…
I too, at times, have felt a great hate for those that have taken so much, with no sorrow for what they do.
But hate wears you down, and does not hurt your enemy. It is like taking poison and wishing your enemy would die.
I have struggled with these feelings many times.”"
He continued: “”It is as if there are two wolves inside me.
One is good and does no harm. He lives in harmony with all around him, and does not take offense when no offense was intended. He will only fight when it is right to do so, and in the right way.
But the other wolf, ah! He is full of anger. The littlest thing will set him into a fit of temper. He fights everyone, all the time, for no reason. He cannot think because his anger and hate are so great. It is helpless anger,for his anger will change nothing.
Sometimes, it is hard to live with these two wolves inside me, for both of them try to dominate my spirit.”"
The boy looked intently into his Grandfather’s eyes and asked: “”Which one wins, Grandfather?”"
The Grandfather smiled and quietly said: “”The one I feed.”"
You love "hate" or unlove? How is it possible to love "unlove"?
