A very difficult thing to do is to love our enemies. From a human point, realistically, hatred is prevalent. But why? Deal with it. People have flaws. I am flawed, you are flawed, we all flawed. Trying to accomplish ‘agape’ love on our own terms can make a flaw fester. Flaws make us individuals.
The best solution I’ve discovered for years is to create diversions:
Find ways to play. The key is to entertain myself so I don’t have to focus on people or flaws. For instance, toying with something productive such as knitting, yoga moments, self-massage and aroma therapy are personal examples of entertainment. Creating diversions bring peace; a heaven sent serenity.
When a person is tough to love, there are reasons for bitterness. Why anyone would prefer anger over laughter is beyond me. What if a simple smile could make a difference? Don’t know about you but it sure makes me happier. If I choose to harbor wickedness toward anyone then I’m harming myself.
