Don't you just hate the way some people want to be the center of attraction all the time? And don't you just hate the way big Pharma is taking over the health industry and all they look at is the bottom line and not people's well-being? And don't you just hate how international corporations are only looking at how to increase profits, without caring for the fact that they're destroying the planet? And don't you just hate how the powers-that-be are so slow to make the change to clean energy and electric cars and so many other things that would take a load off the way the planet is going down the tube? And don't you just hate how so little has changed for the thousands that die of malnutrition every day despite all our protestations to the contrary? (You're telling me they can send a man to the moon, and they can figure out how to connect us all via the Internet, and yet they cannot figure out how to feed every man, woman and child on this planet?) And don't you just hate the way governments keep paying out mind-bogglingly huge chunks of cash to global banks to keep them afloat, and yet every Tom, Dick and Harry is either out of work, or losing his home, or standing in a food line?
By now you must be tiring of my diatribe. Hating something or someone is never the way to solve the underlying issue. Hate does not bring about peace. Hate does not bring about change. Hate solves nothing. Before we look for a solution to our problems, we must first consider that - in the words of the esteemed Pema Chödrön - The way to stop the war is to stop hating the enemy. From the new position where the driving emotion is not hate but a proactive desire to help create change, we may be closer to finding a solution.
Are you hating the enemy today? What can you do to change that?
For much more about becoming aware of your emotions and about changing them in healthy ways, have a look at my book Rewiring the Soul: Finding the Possible Self, available at Amazon as a paperback or e-book for Kindle and all Kindle applications.
