The line between love and hate…
It sounds so cliché, I know… but is there really is a thin line between love and hate? Hate being the operative word replaced by pain, hurt, anger, fear.
In my life, I have had the privilege of loving so many beautiful beings. When the relationship, friendship or union ended, the love most certainly was not lost, it was only replaced by the pain, hurt, anger and fear, which is then mistaken for hate, when in fact it is just the opposite… It is the reaction to love lost or the lack of love.
A few years back I had the opportunity to deeply forgive my ex husband for his behaviour during our marriage, because this was his own lack of self love. And when our union ended, his retaliation to losing this love we shared, was the exact opposite to what love is. But was it really the opposite, or was it fear based which left him in wanting?
I had two very meaningful relationships thereafter which taught me so much about love and the lack of love (self love and love of another). What a gift!!!
Although both these relationships were terribly abusive, full of the drama of pain, hurt and anger, through these relationships, I slowly started to understand what self love and self worth truly is. I could then start to change the patterns in my own life. Blessings beyond measure!!
So, is there really such a thing as ‘the opposite of love is hate’? Not to me…
The opposite of love is fear. Fear of the loss or lack of love, which then results in the behaviours of pain, hurt, anger, resentment, etc. due to the loss and the lack of love.
My compassion for ALL beings is so deep as I truly understand fear based living. I understand and see people’s lack and I offer true love wherever I can. For holding this love back from others creates that line between love and fear… so, in turn, I give freely of all I am in love, for it keeps my vessel empty for more of it ALL to flow readily to and through me…
My reward is the love of my incredible husband, Paul, who honours me, respects me and loves me from the depths of his entire being. For seeing what I deserve IN Love, I was able to attract that which I am most deserving, and that which is most deserving of me and my love.
In Love always,
