BOTTOM LINE:

I say hate nothing - not even wickedness and nastiness - but learn to view everything dispassionately or with detachment and try to discover the reason underlying perversions and seek remedies to them or at least see to it that your life is as free of such things as is possible.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO LOVE YOUR ENEMIES?

No, unless one learns to forcefully suppress hate and makes an artificial attempt to love the hateful.

Why is this so?

Love and hate are opposites and so where there is one, the other exists.

Jesus advocated loving one's enemies but he himself cursed, threatened and abused those who did not accept him.

It is not possible to love something hateful when love and hate are dualisms that're always jostling for space in a person's life with one hardly holding on to its hard-won position for a short time after which it is displaced by its opposite and the same story repeats itself of one dualism giving way to the other and vice versa.

So, this oscillatory battle ends in stress or in no-gain.

The superior teaching is to cultivate intellectual dispassion or if the inner capacity exists for rising into the transcendental planes and of bringing down the essence of the transcendent poise into the unregenerate lower planes then it transforms the play of the opposites into the stuff of the transcendent movement which is neither of the opposites but their unified state which goes beyond the opposites as explained in a previous post.

Former,

Try Portugal - a gem of a place in Europe - despite its sick man rep:

Lisboa, Porto, Evora, Sintra, Alentejo, Algarve....

Portugal is a blend of old world charm, history, cleanliness, homeliness, close family ties, church culture, natural beauty, laid-back atmosphere, friendly people, passable English proficiency of the warm and welcoming locals, cozy cafes/bars, efficient public transport, beautiful orange/red roof tiled villas, sufficient modern amenities, quaint villages/small towns, inexpensive tariffs for most things and delicious wines/food and luckily Portugal is often skipped by international tourists (most Indian tourists give Portugal a skip and do not even consider it as a holiday destination) giving it a not so crowded ambience and a less noisy character.

Portuguese ties with India go back centuries and Portugal ruled over some parts of India till as late as 1960....

Frijoles---Not just is that incorrect, it is hateful

HughBe--- Please explain your reasons for LYING?

Lesson 1--- It cannot be HATE to speak the TRUTH it may hurt some as is the current case with you but being TRUTHFUL can NEVER be HATEFUL.

Lesson 2---YOUR rabbis teach that HOMOSEXUALITY is ACCEPTABLE and that creature knows this to be TRUE, you enemy of GOOD.

" Reconstructionist Judaism and Reform Judaism do not hold this view and ALLOW HOMOSEXUAL intercourse. "

Lesson 3: The bible teaches that "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is ABOMINATION."

Lesson 4: Based on my quote above YOUR rabbis teach ABOMINATION.

Lesson 5---Your rabbis teach you that there is such a thing as Kosher pork.

Lesson 6.--- " those who eat the flesh of the SWINE (pigs) and the detestable thing and the rodent, shall PERISH together," says the Lord" Isaiah 66

Lesson 7: Based on Leviticus 11 all unclean animals are an ABOMINATION to the Lord but as you know that such is not the case for you and your masters.

STATE OF THE WORLD

1) Modern India is bereft of its ancient sublime roots and aside from a few bright patches most of the nation and its institutions are in shambles that have descended into the cesspool of the uncivilized, imitative, impoverished and criminal.

2) In Asia, where efficiency, discipline, progress, creativity, dignity and civic sense are concerned, Japan and South Korea are doing well. Singapore is a leading money-laundering haven and its industry is screw-driver driven or a hub for assembled products invented elsewhere.

3) Israel is a mostly a land of perverts, racists and people with a criminal mentality and just a handful of Israelis are sane, unbiased, honest and humane.

4) The Islamic nations are at the bottom of the civilizational heap and are set to implode due to stone age barbarisms and under internecine stresses or will be destroyed by external powers.

5) Much of Europe and North America are facing relentless attacks from the forces of perversion, imperialism, crass materialism and disintegration but quite a few Europeans and North Americans have retained or are improving upon their innate sense of discipline, self-respect, original thinking, civic orderliness, attention to detail, zero tolerance for shoddiness, adventurousness, fair-mindedness, chivalry and can-do attitude which is a welcome relief.

6) Most of South America is a breeding ground for poverty, chaos, and crime.

7) Aside from the enchanting wild life, Africa is a horror.

8) The Caribbeans are caught up in a perpetual state of lethargy, licentiousness, criminal activities, poverty, backwardness and black magic.

Israel is being attacked from every possible angle - and this is an evil scenario, embellished with a false saving grace. There should be one small place on the planet where jews can be free to pursue their own beliefs, and this must be respected by insecure christians and muslims, who have a problem respecting Jews as Jews, and Israel as Israel.
Pushing Jews into the sea, in the name of the NT or Quran, is the same as any other form of genicide. Have the jews not paid a great price to remain Jews? The truth is, America was founded by Jews [Columbus and all his mapsters were Jews], as a refuge for many - but also to save Christianity - from Europe. This is what Jews escaped from:

HughBe--- My Jesus, the Christ, teaches me that your masters or rabbis teach ABOMINATIONS and the dumb sheep like you and Eric follow blindly.
The problem, Hugh, is that you don't read and understand the Jewish Rabbi now known as Jesus. Rabbi Jesus was a reformer. Rabbi Jesus taught not to blindly and literally follow. He asked people to observe the Torah with a sense of humanity.

He taught that the second most important mitzvah was love your neighbor as yourself. Rabbi Jesus never said that you should call everyone who disagreed with your interpretation of the Tanakh "gay" or "homo". Doing so is not loving your neighbor as yourself.

It is a hateful act as Frijoles said. It says to everyone that unless they agree blindly with you that you will accuse them of violating your interpretation of the Tanakh also. Disagree with Hugh and have the wrath of Hugh come down upon you. Hugh doesn't care if what he says is true or not. Dare to disagree with Hugh and you will suffer his wrath anyway.

I have adopted the philosophy that calling me gay is not an insult because I accept gay people as my neighbors and I treat them as myself. Rabbi Jesus said to do that.

He taught that people should not stone a person who did not follow the mitzvot (prostitute story).

He taught that the rules of Shabbat should be tempered by humanity (healing on Shabbat story).

He taught that one should worry about one's own actions and not worry about what others are doing (mote/beam analogy).

If one lives one's life as Rabbi Jesus prescribed, one will look at the mitzvot as a guide to living one's own life and not as a way to judge others. That is your mistake Hugh. You are trying to force everyone into the Hugh theory of life rather than worry about what you are doing.

The Tanakh has some mitzvot that tell you what not to do. Rabbi Jesus never said that you should force others to abide by those mitzvot. He didn't say that you should force people from amongst you who do not abide by those mitzvot. Rabbi Jesus said to live one's own life in conformity with G-d and let others be. Rabbi Jesus said not to be judgmental.

Oh, one more example. Rabbi Jesus said to tell others, but if they tell you to get lost, you should do so.(Dust on shoes analogy.)

Mandalay’s Chinese Muslims Chilled by Rioting Buddhists

MANDALAY, Myanmar — When hundreds of Buddhist men carrying clubs and swords marauded through the streets of this old royal capital earlier this month, the owner of a Muslim-Chinese restaurant took down the Koranic scriptures and the image of Mecca hanging above the cashier and removed the Arabic writing from signs on the street.

HONOR THY FATHER AND MOTHER

One degraded White woman says in a blog, "In the past, you were expected to keep your ageing parents at your home, many now see that this is not possible or FAIR."

COMMENTS:

Many degraded Westerners reject their aged parents.

If the aged parent is capable of caring for himself or herself, it is OK if he/she lives alone but as a safety measure and for companionship a kind house-helper should be hired to live with the aged parent(s) and their kids should live as close to them as possible, preferably down the same street or in the same neighbourhood, so that they can visit and spend quality time with their old parents on a daily basis.

I can't think of an adult kid living hours away from aged parents who're ruthlessly left to fend for themselves.

It is UNFAIR on the part of adult children to keep themselves aloof from aged parents or to consider them a burden so that the kids can live a life of fun and sensual excesses.

Parents should be valued,. loved and respected above all - they're the only ones who love us unconditionally and who stand behind us through thick and thin and who're the source of bringing us into this world and of nurturing us through our formative years.

Had my parents been alive, I'd have lived with them in the same apartment even had I been married with wife and kids or at the most I'd have bought an apartment in the same apartment block or in the same neighbourhood so that I could be as near as is possible to them.

WARNING: May those adult children who desert their aged parents or who treat them as a burden be cursed and meet a bad end.
