If only there is less hate and more faith
I am not talking Yehsou (Jesus) so don’t run away yet. I am talking commonsense.
I have seen some people who are really bogged down with so much hatred for people. I have encountered them too. Sometimes, they back-stabbed me, bad mouthed me, never even give me a chance and already planted seeds of hate to people I just met.
I wonder how people can live with so much anger, hatred, envy and all those negative feelings in them. Isn’t that such a heavy baggage? Everything you do, read, hear, meet and etc, you are just so full of hate.
I usually don’t retaliate with hate. But I have always been the cheeky one who will ruffle the feathers using my Shaolin kungfu invisible force. You know why? Cos these sort of people will put on their antenna and lurks around me. All I need is to send some subtle messages and they will be drawn into deeper anger, hatred, envy and more.
It is a pity that these people whose life is already so miserable will pile more unhappiness unto themselves by finding people to hate. I tell you lah. Hate is a very tiring thing to do. So is anger. So is disappointment. If you can master controlling those feelings, life is a lot easier to live. No one can make you angry unless you allow it yourself. (I learned this from Father Stephen Liew)
Then, there is thing call faith. Faith on people. So many people have little faith. Not only to their gods but also to the people around them. When you have shaky faith on people important to you, you can never really live in peace. You will wonder if that person will disappoint you, fail you, not living up to your expectation.
Faith is not the same as trust, ok? And if you cannot differentiate that, then, sorry lah. You still have a lot to learn.
And why the heavens did I rattle on about faith and hate? Cos I believe many people will have a much happier life if they can just stop hating and start having faith that even the most detestable person can actually transform.
