hate /heɪt/ Show Spelled Pronunciation [heyt] hat⋅ed, hat⋅ing, noun
to dislike intensely or passionately; feel extreme aversion for or extreme hostility toward; detest.
Hate hurts everybody. To hate someone is to diminish yourself as well as the person you hate. Since every human is created in the image of God, to hate someone is to diminish God and to distort the reality of the universe. Hate is powerful. Hate is destructive. You will always gain by getting rid of hate.
Robert Browning wrote a poem called "Soliloquy of a Spanish Cloister" in which one of the monks looks out of his window and sees a brother monk whom he hates. The poem is awesome as it begins:
Gr-r-r--there go, my heart's abhorrence!
Water your damned flower-pots, do!
If hate killed men, Brother Lawrence,
God's blood, would not mine kill you!
What? your myrtle-bush wants trimming?
Oh, that rose has prior claims--
Needs its leaden vase filled brimming?
Hell dry you up with its flames!
No amount of protection from the outside world and confined controlled religious environment can protect anyone from the destructive power of hate within!
What do you hate? Yourself, someone who has hurt you, your parents, your partner, your boss, your special personal vision of God? Hate is just as inclusive as love. Hate can break out in any human situation that has lost control. Hate consumes a lot of energy.
Can you spare that much energy?
Folks I have been blogging about this president and I have said that “I hate this president.”
Until recently I have yet to feel pure hatred and such intense anger and personal betrayal.
Oh dear ones I have sinned…. your dear brother Gaius has done some regretful things but slowly I am revealing some of the most blatant disregard of my personal feelings and privacy that I could imagine all to destroy and discredit yours truly.
We all tend to “judge” and usually we make our assessment based on filtered information. How we assess that information is key. Do we absorb only parts of the information we receive or will you allow yourself to expand the mind to intellectually process the fact that there is more… much more than meets the eye.
Most of you won’t understand this or you won’t care but there will be those that will read this and hopefully will take pause and contemplate. This message is for them.
These people will never hear from nor ever speak to me. Most did not give a fuck about me in the first place and that is ok. However as you assess what has gone on recently any reasonable individual must ask themselves “was it all just him?”
“the nigger was never welcomed, we only tolerated him”
Another side of the situation that pissed me the fuck off... just so you know.
Folks one last piece of advice and if you never pay attention to anything else on this blog do know that this is as serious as anything I have ever posted here.
GET OFF FACEBOOK!
Now if you choose to ignore my advice because you have become accustomed to the site and find the features useful in keeping in contact with folks all I ask is that you do one thing.
Whoever you have as friends, ask yourself if the chips are down and you are as hopeless and helpless as you can get would these people have your best interest at heart do they really give a fuck about YOU?
Do you trust them 100%?
Don’t post your personal business; avoid talking about personal matters to folks who are nothing more than acquaintances.
Keep in mind I followed my own advice… but the person I thought I trusted the most did not.
No doubt I’ll survive… I was informed that a friend of mine, his father passed away on Thanksgiving. I had a cousin who was shot and killed on Thanksgiving Day so the holiday has no significant meaning to me.
While I brooded over temporary setbacks I do know that there are individuals who are going through real, significant personal trials.
The hatred will fade… hopefully soon for my own sake.
I needed to vent particularly to those who at least once in awhile give a shit about what I say and think.
