Loving Our Enemies

Imagine a world where everyone loves each other. Imagine peace and harmony. Imagine a constant state of flow. Sadly, this is not our current reality.

We keep choosing to hold on to pride, and we refuse to forgive those who have hurt us.

I'm not saying that we should be best friends with people who physically, mentally and/or emotionally hurt us. I'm saying we should not hold a hateful place for them in our heart. That dark speck in our heart can cause havoc in our soul.

Being mindful of everyone's capacity for love can heal our hatred. Deep inside we yearn for love and just don't know how to express it. Some love so much that they hurt themselves and their loved ones.

I've found that they are on a journey and I can choose if I want my journey to cross paths with theirs or not. Sometimes I have chosen to move my journey away from theirs.

Our enemies are our teachers. They show us valuable lessons in love and compassion - this is why I choose to forgive anyone who has wronged me. I will not let my heart know of hate. My heart operates better on love.

I let God work within me to heal and transform my heart. I talk to a Therapist so I can understand my thoughts better. I strive for balance in my life. Love is a daily practice.

With Love, Dania
