Kill your enemies – make them your friends

Loving your enemies is not easy. It needs the patience of Job, the loving compassion of the Buddha, and the forgiveness of the Christ.

However, loving your friends is easy – it’s natural. So becoming friendly with more people allows you to be more loving.

For now I’m talking about making friends one person at a time. As a political junky I used to get into heated arguments with so many. This was more like mental masturbation as no one would possibly change anyone else’s opinions. In an argument each person becomes more convinced of his/her own opinions and there’s only anger and self justification.

Now-a-days I keep quite at first. I listen and look for points of commonality. When we start agreeing with each other I may be able to move the other person’s position slightly and at the same time I may learn something new. Listening, does mean listening and being ready to change.

Another thing you can do to kill your enemies is to send your love to people you may not love. Just see the person, group in your imagination and imagine a pink light surrounding them. Pink is the color of unconditional love and somehow covering a situation in pink light within your imagination makes the situation better in the exterior world.

So imagine a world of peace and unconditional love and at least feel a little peace in yourself.
