But, I tried chatting with him, and talking to him in a nice, friendly tone, as if I were talking to a brick wall once he decided not to acknowledge me any more.
Then I left feeling good about myself, but felt pity on this person. That he doesn’t share the same feelings of friendship and compassion as I do. But now I have closure with “the hate” that I’d been feeling in the past toward him, because of the way he has treated me and my family.
Anyway, I can’t look back from how I hated before. I don’t want to hate anyone, not even if it’s in retaliation for what another has done in the past.
I think I can bury all hatred and look on everyone with love and compassion. It’s a monumental acheivement, but I now think it can be done. And I think I can free myself from the bonds of “karmic negativity”.
There is a certain amount of this “karmic negativity” in this world, especially in the middle east… there’s always been hatred over there that has lasted years and years.
How can people become more compassionate toward others. Especially, to become more compassionate toward their enemies… who have families and loved ones of their own… who must have things that they love, and that they long for peace and brotherly love in this world….
How can we fix the problems of this world?
