What have we as humans gained from hate, war, revenge, death and destruction? Granted, war in itself is sometimes required for the freedom and sovereignty of a nation, or a people oppressed. However, to carry hate, to feed from it, think upon it, plan from by it is so very harmful to any human being.
It is not the hated person that is harmed or affected by this hate, it is the hater alone that suffers through the hate. The hate that is carried breeds into other feelings and changes the very person that is consumed by hate. It imprisons the individual that hates and binds them to an unhealthy realm of oppression, cruelty and darkness.
