Combat Flip Flops Centered Sunday : Love and Hate

February 03, 2019

Combat Flip Flops Centered Sunday Love and Hate Yoga Blog Post

‘Love’, is, always has been, and always will be an acceptable answer to pretty much any question of substance

-

‘Fuck, I don’t know’ is a close second

-

Have you ever felt hatred?

-

In war, I have sat face to face with ‘enemies’, feeling their darkness and disgust for me attempting to infiltrate my soul

-

They hated me on an ideological level; motivating their attacks, often sacrificing their own lives, upon this foundation of hatred

-

Looking into their eyes, feeling their primal disgust for who/what I was, I have felt the most evil, concentrated, and malignant hatred

-

When they would suffer horrific injuries, yet still cling to life, I would work to save them

-

Sometimes, their hatred softened, and for a few moments, we shared peace as humans

-

Sometimes, I looked into their eyes, feeling their hatred carry them away on their final breath

-

It’s in experiences like those that we witness the fragility of human existence, and the depths of our beliefs and emotions

-

To be on the receiving end of vile, filth ridden hatred can be the most powerful motivator to choose love over all

-

To watch death overtake hollow, vacant eyes, knowing their final thoughts of life were viciously clawing at your soul...

-

To choose love can be the most arduous path, but it is the path our souls crave

-

I have experienced enough darkness and hatred to last 1000 lifetimes... love must be the only path

-

Choose Love

-
