I'ts so easy to hate others, and so easy to go to war with the ones that you hate....but do we really hate them?? or are we doing what our religion tell us to do...conquer the other false religions?
On 9/11. I asked my family that are mainly Catholic if I could share something that I thought was truly hateful: not that the bombing of the twin towers wasn't a hateful act...but I believe that they were doing what they ( these particular individuals) were taught to do, nothing more and nothing less, by the people on power. Not for hate but for greed.
When you truly hate someone or something: This hatred can not be satisfied by sending others to do it..it can only be quenches when you can take part in this hatred.!
I told them, asked them if the following was the same, more , or not at all.
There was a true story, and a movie called the "White Dog"
It started with a great looking grandfather playing with his little granddaughter in the yard. She was asking him all of the questions, that little girls will ask....the way that he talked, held, and answered every question with patience was the perfect picture......they had a little white German Sheppard puppy that they were playing with also....
They were in the front yard of a very large mansion, when one of his workers answered the voice at the front gate. He went to the grandfather and told him that everything was ready. The G. F. took his little G. D. by the hand and walked outside of the property. On the out side there was one of his workers pointing to an old blk man, that was sitting on the ground, leaning against the brick wall-that very high, and thick.
This older blk man was a wino, and alcoholic, and was homeless. He was asked if he wanted some money to get wine, or whatever he wanted...he said “yes”. The little girl was asked to bring the whit puppy around and let the wino see it. What he had to do to earn his money was to beat that puppy until it bled...right in front of the little girl.
This went on for at least three years....the little girl seeing a blk man beating the white dog, and the dog hating the smell of a blk man. When this dog was 165 lbs they let it loose in a blk neighborhood, and he was furious, and chased a blk man right into a church, where they showed him killing this man in the pew.
I told-asked my family that this was real hatred, this was real terror, even more so, or as evil as what they did on 9/11....I was told by my brother the Decon....that this was absurd.......a few weeks later he called me, and said that he could not get that story out of his mind...that I was right....I don't want to be right...I want things to be understood...thats what drives me....in all things
Now I have told everyone that I know, that if you really want to make someone happy.....make your self happy first....not in a selfish way, but happy in the way that will make you grow as a person.....if that other person truly loves you, that will make them happy...no?
