If you learn how to forgive, you’ll be amazed, half of the wars of this world will be finished!
Now, something happened thousands of years back. Still people are fighting, still they are fighting, thinking these things happened so many years back, so they are ended. If he can really forgive those people, what happened before we were even born, why should we form a group of such people, why? Because there is something called hatred in human beings, they have hatred, hatred for this, hatred for that, even in small things they’ll say: “I don’t like it, I like it!” It’s very common, nowadays specially.
When we were young, we were not supposed to say such a thing: “I don’t like it, I like it!”, we were not supposed to say. But now their freedom has given them to talk like this: “I don’t like it, I don’t like that, I don’t like that, I don’t like that person!” Who are you? What do you think of yourself to judge others? You don’t know how to appreciate, you don’t know how to enjoy and only what you go on is: “I don’t like it!” And supposing you like it, what will you do? Whether you like it or don’t like is just the same! But just to show off their ego, we say: “I don’t like this way, I don’t like!”
Because there’s no love! If there is love, then you can enjoy everything. We’ll never say: “I don’t like it, I like it!” You will definitely enjoy if you really say that: “I enjoy, I enjoy everything!”
You are closing down yourself by saying: “I don’t like it, I don’t like it, I don’t like!” as if you are a great connoisseur, or a person, a judge, to say this! It is very remarkable that in the West it’s even more prominent that they will say: “I don’t like it, I don’t like!”
Of course, in the East, I would say in India, if somebody says like that, people will say he’s just trying to show off on the face. But showing off is not regarded as bad manners. It’s not regarded as bad manners in the West. To feel shy of anything is regarded as bad manners, but to boast of something, nobody feels that it is a bad thing.
