Make The Difference! Start Loving what you hate!

The recent controversy of the "cartoons"..
"A 14-year-old boy was shot dead by police when a protest in northeastern Somalia turned violent on Monday, residents and hospital sources said."

These ppl are chanting "God is Greatest" and "Death to America".. How can they put love and hate in the same sentence?!

There is just so much negativity in this world today. I'm for one guilty of adding negative energy into this world! Granted, it is difficult to forgo judging someone, love your enemy, and think positive thoughts when, everything is just not going your way or have situations that are causing you pain or anger. But do you know that, by just deciding to love what you hate, you become one less person adding negativity to the universe?

In other words, loving what you hate can help you enjoy your life more, whether this is a person, situation, or a part of yourself. There is little room for anger, dislike, bitterness, or resentment when you are busy loving what you hate. This can also create a profound change in your feelings and your experience.

Rather than lowering yourself to the level of hatred, you also empower yourself by not letting negativity enter your life!

"Be the change you want to see in the world" - Ghandi
"...our individual well-being is intimately connected both with that of all others and with the environment within which we live.

It also becomes apparent that our every action, our every deed, word and thought, no matter how slight or inconsequential it may seem, has an implication not only for ourselves but all others too." - Dalai Lama

(Right, call me a hippy if you want, but if it makes a difference, just a little, you can call me whatever you want!)

it's interesting how some people can boast how loving and gentle their God is while they themselves are hypocritical bastards doing the exact opposite of what they were taught to be...

how very interesting...
