It's a waste of energy to be angry with a man who behaves badly, just as it is to be angry with a car that won't go. – Bertrand Russell
Unfortunately in our world, the word love has gone astray from its original meaning. Instead it is a word that now comes with strings, bondage and dependency. A word that is cloaked with clever phrases that are only masks for our own fear, doubt and hate. I will love you if… if you loved me you would…I love my…I just love ice cream. Through our society’s programming and conditioning we are lead to believe that love is associated with inanimate objects and nothing to do with action. We are taught the opposite of love is hate. Through political correctness we are guided to think that in order to demonstrate love, we must all agree and have the same opinion. Unfortunately by following this prescribed path, we miss the mark and we get trapped in the world of duality.
Love is not the opposite of hate. Love has no opposite. It has no conditions. It is not part of the duality. Pure love just is. This law teaches us to recognize that ours and everyone else’s essence is basically good or of the love vibration however buried within the person that may be. Now I know that sometimes it is extremely difficult to see someone’s inner light when it is the size of a pea and their behaviors reflects that of pure evil. What is essential to understand is that the behavior is almost always a façade for the person’s lack of self esteem or fear-based thinking. Many are shunted in their emotional and mental growth and are locked into behaviors that based on fear, doubt and hate.
