“Sometimes the most anger reflects the strongest love.”

Posted: March 20, 2013 in Just thoughts, Spirituality

When you love one but dislike certain aspects in that person, the push between heart and mind, between love and disliking generates irking contradictions and those eventually grow into anger. When the truth is openly shared however, not in rage but in sincere reconciliation, the heart starts recognizing that when it loves, it does so unconditionally. As it becomes more and more clearer that Love is of heart and liking (or disliking) is of mind, the disliking gradually metamorphosizes into acceptance; then, as the acceptance progressively replaces the anger, one can fully love while openly disliking many aspects in the person they love.

Ram Dass illustrates the idea brilliantly in this story.
