Love your enemies

One of Jesus’s best-known and most radical teachings is, “Love your enemies.”

There is a feeling of exhilaration when we love somebody who dislikes us, a sense of liberation, because the ego becomes disabled.

By loving people who dislike us we use our most potent emotion, love, as a solvent to dissolve the ego.

Instantly there is a spark of burning joy like some people feel when they eat a hot pepper.
