Can we love our enemies?
An opinion from the Internet:
“To love our enemy is impossible. The moment we understand our enemy, we feel compassion towards him or her, and he or she is no longer our enemy.” Thich Nhat Hanh”
Yes, I understand; this is the usual viewpoint on how we try to overcome our inherent distrust and animosity toward others.
And as a result, we usually helplessly swing between love and hate, being enemies or being friends.
But what if we could learn and understand that we truly cannot, ever overcome our instinctive hate and animosity towards others since our instinctive self-love and self-justification will always be stronger?
And what if, despite this, we can also learn how to develop a unique, new, “supernatural” — above our inherent nature — love towards those we hate, which “true love” covers and complements the remaining hate and distrust?
Then, between the remaining, moreover intensifying instinctive hate and the newly developed “true love” — we learn and receive from Nature’s system that surrounds us — we develop a new “Human being” that is capable of processing and sustaining the instinctive hate and “Natural love” together.
Imagine the perception of reality and consciousness we can achieve through this!
And this is all possible, tangible, and practical!
