I "hate" hearing folk whinge and whine about how much they hate this and hate that! Its an unproductive and futile and pointless mental excersise.
Theres so much in the world to love, why waste your life hating stuff? Get a life folk! Misery loves company.
Why do you think terrorist extremist have no problem with blowing up a bus load or building full of children for example? Its because the become so
filled with and consumed by their own hatred that they are blinded to any good. Any small part of them that was once good and decent is consumed and
transformed by their hatred till they become more evil than those/that that hate. Hatred is self fueling, self replicating cancer. If you allow
yourself to hate, you infect yourself with it and it grows malignant, eating away at you inside, eating away what common human decency you once
posessed and took pride in.
Think of a terrorist who happens to be a father. He has a little girl whom he adores. The sight of her little face fills him love and pride, hes a
happy man, a man who is good and decent, a man who would never dream of harming a hair on any childs head. Then one day he joins this group, who
chants stuff he sees reason in and agrees with. So he joins, thinking to fight against this perceived evil or injustice. The more preaching and
propaganda he hears the more he beleives it. This evil he hears about threatens his way of life, his freedom, the future of his child.
So he becomes a fighter, at first passive, but then more and more active the more hate he develops for this "evil" enemy of all he considers
He becomes consumed by the "cause" , a zealot, filled with hatred for that he sees as a threat to the well being of his child, his people.
Then one day, he finds himself making a bomb. A bomb which will kill innocent folk, a bomb which will kill innocent children like his own daughter.
But by now hatred has consumed him, he is blind, no longer able to see anydifference between his actions and that he once thought evil, that he fought
against in the first place.
How did this loving father become a monster? How did he become so overcome with hatred for his enemy that he became worse.
This is the nature of hatred. Hatred has triumphed and transformed what was good into evil. Blinded the eyes that saw and recognised evil, till they
saw evil no more, for they were so.
Dont hate lest you become that you hate. Instead show love and let it spread and transform that which you hate by example.
