Why do we hate so much?

One looks around the world today and sadly there is more hate than love. Why is that? What drives us to hate others? The answer as usual is love and the answer is within.

If we do not care for our own self then we will treat other people accordingly to that standard we set for ourselves. Its a very simple equation. If we fall out of love with ourselves we become broken and angry and in turn express that frustration toward others. The reality of this problem, however simple, is sadly so prevalent in our world today due to the proliferation of the idea of self hate in so many subtle ways through media, and the inference that it is ‘cool’, normal, trendy, etc, to treat ourselves in certain ways which are actually not healthy and in turn treat others the same way.

It would not hurt us to turn off the television of Internet once in a while and look within our own hearts for meaning and take stock of our inner life rather than chasing virtual phantoms. Few of us do this though and our usual complaint is that we just don’t have the time. This is another lie of course which we tell ourselves in order not to face the truth that our castles are built of sand and the labels on our cloths mean essentially nothing. Of course we have the time, the question is do we have the ego to choose love? And if we do, can we face the simple truth that it starts with us. As the late and great Mr. Jackson said, ‘I am starting with the man in the mirror’ and thats as simple as it is, we need to address ourselves where we are today and begin at that point. Every journey starts with one step, but its better to be on that journey than standing still.

If we fail to heal our inner relationship with love and move toward greater degrees of self hate we will tend toward legitimising our hatred of others. If we look into the world today it is clear that there are those who have gone to extremes in this sense of self hated legitimising inhuman levels of predation upon others. It is sad to see the human species acting in more murderous and contemptuous ways than dogs or rats, and it all starts with self hate. Love starts with self love.
