How many people, how many hate crimes, how many look away.
When you hear the heartbreaking stories of loss people have incurred because of hate, how do you respond? Do you look away? Do you get angry and lash out? Do you find someone ‘out there’ to blame? Do you call for punishment or retribution for the sole purpose of revenge.
Darkness will not be driven out by darkness, only the Light can do that.
Hate will never drive out hate, only Love can do that. Dr. Martin Luther King
What does this mean to you? Look at you’re own reactions, are you perpetuating hate thinking you are standing against it? Are you being ‘righteous’ with the same hatred that created a situation in the first place.
Responding by standing for Love, means we stand up for what is right, but our intention isn’t revenge or punishment. Our intention is stop the hate from flowing through you and give it back to the person who still aligns with it so they can feel their own destruction, so they can process the damage they’ve done.
Today, where do you stand and how do you stand for it? You want to make a change in this world, find the hate that still resides within you, find the damage you have done ~ own up to it, just to yourself for starters ~ acknowledging where hate lives within us, accepting that we all have our fair share of lashing out (even if it’s at the car that cuts you off) and then ...... forgive yourself! Bring in some compassion~ build upon that foundation!
We are all doing the best we can with the thoughts and beliefs that have been handed to us from generations past. The experience of we are encountering are here to heal our subconscious programming. With out awareness nothing can change, the conscious universe shows ALL of us our destructive behaviors through situations.
Nothing changes, if nothing changes.
Look inside, what needs to shift within you.
