this morning a topic that might look banal but actually is not.
We are living in a world and in societies where more and more people seek revenge.
People who have been hurted or wronged have this crazy need of revenge, of getting something back, as if it could decrease the pain they feel, seeing someone else suffering.
Where is compassion?
Once a damage has been done it cannot be taken back!
So what is the point of punishing someone. Would you really feel better, feeling like “justice done”?
An eye for an eye?
No. I am sorry but it does not work like this. If you have a little bit of heart you cannot be happy and enjoy seeing another human being suffer, not even if they did you wrong.
Leave to God the judgment. And by the way He is Endless Mercy, so …
It is so mean to wish bad luck to the others, to want revenge, to wish pain. This will not make us feel any better. Deep down how can you be happy of other people pain?
As Dalai Lama never stops advising, we all must seek compassion. And for who hurted us Karma does its job, not us.
And personally I think that the best wish is to hope they could realize the mistake they did and the pain they caused and feel consequently sorry for it. Repentance. And then forgivness, asking for forgivness and forgiving who did us wrong.
We all live and learn and make mistakes. We all must move forward. We all must forgive and apologize. And move on.
Painful but there is only one way to grow: through experiences that teach us more than hundred words.
So stop replying to anger with anger. Stop giving back hate to hate.
As Martin Luther King was saying:
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
So let us reply with love and compassion to those who hurt us. Because who hates is the one who most needs love. Who is angry is the one who most needs compassion.
To hate and hurt is pointless.
If you start filling your soul with love, love to spread to everyone, you will begin to see colors again in this world.
We are here to love each other. And the purpose in life is to love. Material stuff won’t last. Only love moves on and is immortal, as our soul that needs love to be fed.
Start with loving yourself, forgiving your mistakes, letting go, moving on from the past where no one can anymore live.
Breathe. We are alive and this is already the most beautiful gift we should be thankful for.
Let us do not waste a single day. Every day should be a new chance to love, to give, to feel. We are here for being alive for real. Following our heart and what really matters. People and not objects. Love and not material richness or power.
Stop using people and wanting things. We must do the opposite.
Respect to everyone. Never consider yourself superior to anyone. We are all alike in this planet and we will all go back to ashes, not with gold or material richnesses or any of our belongings with us.
What is material will perish. Only love will survive and remain even when we will not anyomore be on this planet.
Becuase only love is ethernal.
Seek for souls, not for bodies.
Love people in their deep inner essence, and make connections based on true feelings that could last. True friendships. True love.
Life is short. Do not waste it in crazy revenge and hate.
Make your soul free from bad energies. Fill it with love and positivity and sunshine.
Love is and will be the answer always.
