“But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.” – Jesus
Jesus asked us to do the most difficult thing ! He didn’t say only to forgive but he said,
“Love your enemies.”
Why only forgiveness is not enough.
Answer yourself, how much you forgive yourself for all wrong deeds. And how much you can accept your this weak side. When you accept that reality then only you can work on it and can transform it. For this you have to Love yourself first.
Then answer, how much you can forgive your family members for hurting you. Can you love them as before?
Now answer how much you can forgive your friends, neighbours, coworkers and other relatives. If yes, how much you can open your heart for them?
If you can climb these steps successfully then you are ready to, Love your enemy. So start climbing these steps. This is a hidden meaning I found in “Love your enemies”
In ascension journey this is our highest test.
