How do a people overcome the centuries old, ingrained, ideological beliefs that keep them in desolation and fear; which prompt them to continual uncontrolled hatreds, violence, persecutions, killings and self destruction?
There is a big price to pay for hatred, unaddressed and rampant; and it often starts with a reaction and simple thought. The stress in harboring hateful resentments produces internal infirmity toward a weakened immune system in the body-mind connection; and affects living in general as it disrupts life that is proceeding on the wrong path.
Yet, with so many contentious, with no cause but to look for trouble to inflict hurt or harm to others out of harbored resentments, envies, competitiveness, intolerance through differences of beliefs and racism, injustices, inflictions, revenge, etc., it stands to reason that thoughts and feelings of hateful resentment for provocations can be viewed as commonly natural, reactive, human emotions; which is logically acceptable and understandable, since all humans are subject to the same conditions of shared humanity.
In my own experiences throughout life, I have always found the presence of these emotions to be invasive, unwanted and terribly detrimental. The longer they would linger, the more adversely dark things would become. I wasn't raised early on in any particular religious doctrine or belief, so I set out to try and find some meaningful answers through theologies, on how to cope and overcome some of the confusion and problems I was facing, growing up.
I delved into different religious beliefs and found some soothing and enlightening qualities within all of them; but only one gave me the way to the Truth and the practical application that went beyond calming meditational sequences and interesting reading: the Teachings of the Holy Bible from Genesis to Revelation in Judeo-Christian theology.
Revelation 22:13 I AM Alpha and Omega, The Beginning and The End. The First and The Last.
Jeremiah 29:13 And you shall seek Me, and find Me, when you shall search for Me, with all your heart.
Then Spoke Jesus, ...Saying,
I AM The Light of the world: he (she) that follows Me shall not walk in darkness,
but shall have the Light of Life.
If mankind had no problems at all, in that everyone led a decent, productive life; working, contributing to the greater good, exemplatorily raising wholesome and happy children, unprofane, getting along peaceably amongst themselves, honest, kind and yielding, understanding, compassionate, charitable, faithful;...with a natural decency that was prevalent worldwide, there would be no need for Spiritual Instruction, no need for such a Teacher, a Savior, as Jesus to sacrificially Give His Precious Life against the strongholds of prevalent, tremendous obstacles.
It was His Concern and Intervention for the welfare of all mankind that led to His Dying a young man at the hands of them possessed with all the above mentioned terrible and destructive qualities; and that continue to prevail among so many, worldwide at the present time.
Matthew 5:43, 44, 45
You have heard that it has been said,
Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thine enemy.
But I Say to you,
Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you,
and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
That you may be the children of your FATHER which IS In Heaven:
I think that my moment of truth regarding the Profound and Workable Validity of Jesus' Teaching was when, many years ago, I actually followed Jesus' above mentioned Saying and prayed Blessings for a contentious neighbor who was a bothersome, relentless persecutor. My thoughts, my heart cleared up as I prayed, and I became immune to the ill effects of those encounters, which left me free with the light in my life turned on. There's nothing like practical belief that actually works to convince one that there surely must be something very Valuable and very Powerful there to further look into.
And I can honestly tell you that I have since, never been disappointed.
It behooves one to know then, that one's mental and physical health are greatly safeguarded through the knowledge and practice of that Powerful Belief and the very pleasant fruit of its faithful application.
Doesn't it figure then, that what works for one can work for all? But the attainment started, starts with seriously wanting peace and seeking it.
The trouble is, that not all want it. Can people be made, forced to want it? Some, through suffering and loss, can be driven to want it.
Them that remain unaffected by suffering and loss, who are not at all open to instruction and the understanding of decency, and who continue to pursue violence and destruction, with no regard for anyone, even themselves, are simply, presently lost to darkness and must be put under control to defend the others.
And so, the peace-loving world is at war with the ideology of hatred; in direct opposition to the One of Love.
But if all of our very own actions are not without any fault, then whose side are we on? How much middle ground can we afford to give up?
The most important line drawn pertains to any form of behavior which relates to honoring the sanctity and safeguarding of innocent life.
That should lead to the obvious, all important, truth seeking question to oneself: "Which side am I really on?"
