A 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. Try to accomplish ‘agape’ love on our own terms can make a flaw fester. 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 the what ifs. For instance, toying with something productive such as knitting, yoga with self-massage and aroma therapy are perfect examples of interactive play. Creating diversions brings on peace; it’s a heaven sent serenity.
When a person is tough to love, there is some reason for the bitterness. I can’t imagine why anyone would prefer anger over laughter. What if a simple smile and a nod could make a difference in attitude? Don’t know about you but it sure makes me happier. If I choose to harbor wicked feelings toward another person then I’m harming myself.
