Day 59 – Beware Your Enemies

October 23, 2011

Closet cleaned. Clothes folded, ironed, hung up and packed. All clothes. Not used to seeing such organization. A miracle in my world, really…

It seems like such a big deal to finally complete things. Breaking old habits and getting used to new stuff can be daunting, even if the new stuff is good for you. We have been conditioned to keep our sanity by establishing and maintaining habits…

So, I welcome the breakdowns now. They don’t last forever (I hope). Let the new habits begin.

There are a few things I want to talk about today so I haven’t figured out the heading yet, but it will come before I’m done writing. I’m floating in the in-between. Not particularly inspired or uninspired. Not happy or sad. No big drama going on in my life. I mean, I could keep the thing with my sister going, but I don’t really want to. I have money in the bank and green juice in the fridge. My mamma loves me and my sister does too, and I really don’t have anything to complain about.

I mean, sure, the friends and man thing aren’t ideal, and the professional thing isn’t quite where I’d like it to be, but those things seem easy to me now, instead of seeming impossible. I don’t know why they seem easy, because they are still the same things that seemed difficult a couple months ago, but it has been my experience that when things seem easy for me in my life, they are easy. Perhaps I have finally gone mad. That’s even all right with me… lol.

Anyway, moving forward. I’d like to talk about enemies today. Well, I don’t really want to talk about them, but it seems like a necessary evil (get it? ha ha). I’ll keep it brief. Enemies exist. I have been in denial about this for some time, but the truth is, there are people and forces who wish to harm you whether or not you have done them any harm, but especially if they feel you have done something that goes against their program.

This could be anything, like being with a man they want, or just being with a man period (which makes them feel jealous and inferior). It could be the fact that you are happy (wealthy, at peace, successful, good-looking, funny, smart, Loved) and they feel like they aren’t. Maybe you dumped them or passed them over for a job or position and bruised their ego or shook their concept of themselves. It could be that you are a certain race or religion and you don’t think that the people who feel like they are supposed to be superior to you are superior to you. It could be that you grew up in a certain environment where people weren’t doing well, and then you had the audacity to leave and/or change your way of life and the folks you grew up with take it as an insult. They  want to be the most or best whatever and will go to great lengths to destroy you if they think you are better than them… This is a hard pill for me to swallow, but it’s real. No matter what you do, how nice you are, how much money you give them, how many positive prayers you send in their direction, there will be people who just don’t like you.  They may even hate you and try to harm you. Look at Beyonce, the pope, the president, religious leaders, amazing teachers, healers, doctors and scientists, they all have people who hate them for various reasons. Even Mother Theresa had haters! What makes us think that everyone is going to like us?

Yesterday, a friend of mine brought to my attention that many of my close friends have also been my enemies, meaning that they don’t wish good for me. I mean they would probably save me if they saw a bus about to hit me, but they would be the same ones to push me in front of the bus under certain circumstances. It’s really not something I like to think about… But what to do?

Different people have their own opinions… There are all kinds of ways to respond when someone wages war on you. I think its important to be aware of what is going on and then make a conscious decision on how you want to respond. Recognize the people in your life and evaluate your relationships… Some people can Love their enemies so much that it changes their enemies’s hearts. If you can do that, go ahead. But lets be honest. Many people want to be like Jesus and other prophets, but they are no where near that level of consciousness and power. What we can do in the meantime is just not hang with the people who wish us bad and say sorry to the people we have harmed. Seems simple enough.

The truth is, if you choose to, you can make a decision to trust people who have demonstrated that they are trustworthy. You can come close to people who have shown that they like you just the way you are. You can share your secrets with friends and family who have shown that, even if and when they are not doing as good as or better than you, they have your best interest at heart. There is no need to hang out with people who want to harm you, and there is no need to go about trying to harm them. It just keeps the drama going, and more often than not, it produces a negative effect on your life… I’m just realizing this. Don’t keep your enemies close. Keep them far away…
