What works for you? Having thoughts of love or thoughts of hate? What results are you creating in your life? If you are having thoughts of hate, you might want to find a way to change those thoughts to change your results. I bring this up because of what I experienced today.
I encountered a dozen police officers this morning! As they detoured me from my morning jog, I hear “Come out with your hands up.” A couple of minutes later I’m a couple of blocks away, parallel to the house they have surrounded, I hear a gunshot!
My heart feels the dread of someone being shot. I feel sad for the person. I’m anticipating the police shot the person in the home. Whether the person had to be shot in self defense or not, my heart goes out to them.
What was going on in their life where they put themselves in that situation? I imagine what it would have been like to actually see the person shot. I don’t like the feeling at all! I probably would have cried and maybe even gotten sick. I think about our soldiers and what they see and do. I can’t even imagine what they go through. I had all kinds of thoughts and feelings going on.
These thoughts take me back to a few decades ago when I held onto hatred. So much so, I could easily have killed someone. (A specific someone) I had gotten into a situation full of fear and hatred. I didn’t like how I felt about that person and never, ever want to have those horrid feelings again!
It was a terrible time in my life, so I can understand how a person can get buried in those situations, thoughts, and very detrimental results. When you hear about or see someone going through a terrible time, it’s not the time to judge them. You don’t know what’s been going on in their life.
I’m extremely thankful I had a turning point which afforded me to go down a different path. First, I had to STOP being afraid. Once that happened, I opened the door to new thoughts and better results. It took a long time and it is a lifetime journey, however, I now live a more peaceful and loving life.
I pray daily for our world to become more peaceful, for people to realize how destructive hate is to them and everyone around them. All I can do is pray and imagine a more peaceful world. I can also share what I’ve discovered so people can “let go” of the hate and anger that causes this destruction.
