February, Month of Love and Hate


For the month of February, I’ve chosen the contrast of love and hate as my theme for the month. 

Though love and hate are thought of as extremes that are distant from each other, I believe otherwise. I find that when hate is considered, there’s often a deep love that I fear and can’t understand. Turning with anger and resorting to hate is an easy way to deny the love that exists and justify avoidance. 

Though extremes are often divided and placed apart, their true meaning isn’t whole without the other. To be aroused by dislike is an opportunity to recognize what is appreciated and provides direction for choices. To recognize what care lies beneath our anger and choice to avoid is to accept the love we desire to cultivate and grow with the experience. When hate looms within your horizon, search for the light of love that beckons to bring you deeper understanding.
