LOVE AND HATRED

LOVE and HATRED:
Hatred, like a wound is as an engraving upon the soul.
As the wound engraves a mark upon the body, so does hatred engrave strife within the heart.
As it grows into a sore, so does hatred build a fortress of animosity, of pain, of grief and of hopelessness, being helpless in your situation, and not having or knowing anything to do about it nor have a feasible solution to the situation.
As a sore attracts flies and other insects, oozing out the pores, so does hatred attract insults, repulsion, detest and casting away. It affects your attitude and cause people to avoid you with a passion.
It takes the sincere caring of the heart in love to tend the wound, disdaining the foul and odorous emissions, and to administer treatment in a bid to effect healing.
Without this, the wound remains, with the pain, the shame and the ridiculousness of it all.
If you need to be rid of this wound or hurt as the case may be, you need to show some love for yourself as well as for others.
Likewise, if you need to forget a wrong, you need to approach it with love.
If you need to be happy, you need not hate.
If you need to forget anything or anyone as the case may be, you must not hate.
If you need to live in peace with everyone, you dare not hate.
Everyone or everything you hate remain engraved upon your heart.
In order to show love and affection, you need to eschew hatred and learn to accommodate or live with various idiosyncrasies. These are peculiar to the individual as it is even to you.
If others are wrong, have you ever asked yourself if you could ever have been wrong? What are your own peculiar idiosyncracies?
Maybe, as you see others, so they see you. So, who will make the world or the society a better place to live in?
I think you should take the first bold step to eradicate hatred, lay the foundation for forgiveness and build a lasting structure which is grounded in love.
Develop the attitude that you have a lesson to learn from every novel situation. Whatever hurt you bear helps you to have a better understanding of the person, teaches you a lesson and helps you to become a better person.
Let go of the seed of hate, cast it out, and with faith, embrace the virtues of Christian living, develop the spirit to forgive, to forbear and to forget – always ready to smile and make a new start.
If you need to be happy and to live in peace and harmony all around you, embrace LOVE!!!

Remain blessed,
Bola.
