Love Your Enemies

Our enemies provide us with a precious opportunity to practice patience and love. We should have gratitude toward them.

Tenzin Gyatso
The 14th Dalai Lama


Love our enemies?  Did Chris just say that?  Seriously?
Yes I did.
The 14th Dalai Lama said it.
Jesus preached it.

This is not a new concept as you can see.  And if you notice one of my favorite words is in this quote or at least a derivative of it.  I’m not going to tell you what the word is.  Let’s see how many people really know me.  Can you guess the word?  I gave you the biggest hint, so even if you don’t know me as well some many of my followers, you should be able to pick the word out.

Loving our enemies has much in common with forgiveness.

Those who forgive can lighten their hearts.
Those who forgive stop hurting themselves
.

I see Law of Attraction in this quote as well.  Can you guess where?  It is with that favorite derivation once more.  As you’ve seen with this entry and several others here and for those of you who have been following me for some time I resonate deeply with Buddhism.  I feel most comfortable in that belief system.  It’s why I continue writing about the faith.

If you notice I said:
Jesus preached it.

It’s another example that all religions are one.  We are all connected.
Everything is connected.
Everything is connected to one divine source.

Do you see that?
If not, I think it’s time to remove your spiritual blinders.

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Chris
