We are Not Meant to Hate (Secular Version)

Note: This entry has been modified from the original version to make it more secular in nature. A link to the original version is provided at the end of this entry.

So often people will think it is easier to hate than to love. The truth is just the opposite. We are ‘built’ to love not to hate. Hating requires a conscious choice on our part, to love is natural and instinctual.

We do not need to be taught to love, but we do need to be taught to hate. Sadly, society teaches us to hate those that are different. Society as a whole has made hatred seem to be our nature; however, only a very small part of humans cast this dark shadow on us all. When you are brought up around hate, you begin to believe it to be natural and emulate it.

The more we hate, the more our hearts become corrupt. The more they begin to die, the more we suffer. The good news is that not all is lost. It can be a long and hard road to rebirth but each of us can do it. None us need to ever do it alone. During our life, we all meet ‘angels’ that help us. These ‘angels’ take the form of dear friends, lovers and total strangers. They help us learn things about ourselves, give us love and comfort when times are hard, they in many other ways give us the strength we need to go on during the hard times. These ‘angels’ help us see the true nature of life and ourselves, love.

I have had my ‘angels’ over the years and have recognized a few of them.

To love we need only be ourselves. We need to share our gifts and blessings with the world, especially those less fortunate than ourselves.

The caveat is that we cannot do it out of fear of punishment or a desire to be rewarded, but to do it selflessly with the only goal of caring for others and expecting nothing in return.
