Dreams are renewable. No matter what our age or condition, there are still untapped possibilities within us and new beauty waiting to be born.

The hate that feeds you.

I'm not quite sure what fuels long lasting hate in the heart.  Perhaps when humans hurt, our weakness is that we can't instantaneously let go.  I'm reading a wonderful book and here is a quote from it:

"I don't know what frightens me more, the power that crushes us, or our endless ability to endure it".

Dealing with hate and bitterness has always been a plague to me.  If conflicts can't be resolved, it is evident that we can only let them be.  Trying is wise because once you've tried, no matter the outcome, it seems easier and lighter to endure.  This is because you know you've tried and therefore can walk away with nothing but peace in your heart.  Letting go is all that can be done, all that is healthy.  Life goes on regardless, but for those that hold that bitter hatred, life will progress with this thing that pulls at you from time to time.

Nothing in any life, no matter how well or poorly lived, is wiser than failure or clearer than sorrow. And in the tiny precious wisdom they give to us, even those dreaded and hated enemies, suffering and failure, have their reason and their right to be.
