Enemies are often our enemies because our fear of them has conquered us.

We know it’s not nice to dislike other people. We know we should think kindly of everyone, and often we try to be neutral, if not positive, about those who irritate and frustrate us. Sometimes we even succeed.
For many of us, however, there is a small group of people we simply detest. Try as we might, we just cannot warm up to these folks. We’re hard pressed to think of a positive quality they might possess. The simple mention of their name can set off an adverse reaction inside us.
We probably feel guilty about our intense dislike. We may even increase our efforts to overcome our seemingly innate repugnance. But somehow, it just seems so hard to like these people.
We struggle because we’re focused on attempting to like people we abhor. Trying to find their positive qualities may not help, because we are scrutinizing others instead of ourselves. In order to resolve our hatred, we need to look at ourselves rather than those we loathe.
When we understand the emotion that underlies our hatred, we have the key to viewing these folks neutrally. We may feel these people are stupid; we may be afraid of them; we may feel they have wronged us; we even may simply not like how they look. But the least common denominator of all our reasons for hate is fear. Their differences from us, their actions, or their beliefs threaten us or our worldview.
When we are not secure in our sense of ourselves as perfect and inherently divine beings, we live in separation consciousness. We believe that we and others are flawed and broken. Since it we feel better when we push that feeling outside of ourselves, we project it onto others. While now viewed outside of ourselves, our rejected feelings still make us uncomfortable. Thus, we learn to fear the targets of our projection, and we use the fear and the dislike it engenders to justify creating further conceptual distance from them.
It’s all too easy to find a few choice targets to dump our self-judgment on, so we can reject them completely and pretend that we, by contrast, are good and okay. Separation requires a negative comparison of others to establish our self worth. We create enemies so that we can be protagonists, and fear is the resulting victor.
When we choose to recognize our own innate divine nature, we develop the understanding that all are perfect and interconnected in love. We acknowledge others as divinely encoded beings, too. All existence becomes a single whole, displaying myriad aspects to our perception. There is nothing and no one to prefer or judge as more worthy, since all is one—equal and divine.Clickhere to learn how to make your enemies allies..
