Hate has been described as a toxic alchemy of fear and disdain. And if that description is true, then I must with greatest remorse confess; this experience of human I am being, I do hate.
I mean how could one not? As of course I should fear us; man is the greatest threat to all life on this planet, far and away, bar none. If you don’t believe me just watch the documentary “Racing Extinction” which chronicles the facts surrounding the mass extinction event, surpassing even that of the event that killed the dinosaurs — that is now taking place and that we are without a doubt the primary cause of. Certainly that is just reason to be fearful of our species?

I also feel just in my great disdain for this human experience, because it absolutely does not have to be this way. If only we were to choose the truth of our potential in LOVE, over our dead end lie of control, but we do not and I think as I said before; that is more than enough cause, to have disdain for our species, the fact that we are willfully destroying all, without point or sense.
So again if hate is fear married to disdain, then yes; I hate this experience of human being. But it is has also been said; that there is a fine line between LOVE and hate and I believe that fine line is; like.
I had the blessed opportunity of interviewing legendary Native American poet warrior John Trudell about a year before passed to the great hunting ground beyond. In the interview I began to discuss with John, LOVE and he stopped me and said, “I don’t think its about love. I think we must like ourselves first.” I feel he was right, as if we are ever to cross that thin line between self LOVE and self hating, self loathing, we must learn to like ourselves and in order to do that we must stop doing all the things that make us unlikable and by extension unlovable.
While I LOVE with all my soul and spirit all life, I hate just as much that I am put in position, to hate this experience of human I am being.
I want to like the reflection I wake to dawn after dawn, but I don’t and I can’t.
For I how can I?
How can you?
How can we?
After all we manifested ourselves, as the comet…
“We’ll lose more species of plants and animals between 2000 and 2065 than we’ve lost in the last 65 million years. If we don’t find answers to these problems, we’re gonna be victims of this extinction event that we’re at fault for.” ~ Paul Watson
“Nevertheless so profound is our ignorance, and so high our presumption, that we marvel when we hear of the extinction of an organic being; and as we do not see the cause, we invoke cataclysms to desolate the world, or invent laws on the duration of the forms of life!” ~ Charles Darwin, The Origin of Species
