A Right to Hate?

The other day a bunch of cancer dudes gathered round with an oncology counselor. Not one word was said about the type and/or prognosis. But some folks had no hair kind of. When I lost it before I went for the shaved head look. And in the oncology yoga class some of us kind of needed a chair for balance. But we were all shooting for the stars on the “Tree Pose”. It is a lie that I fell over, I simply needed to pick up my keys. “which I lay close for just such an occasion.”

We really do feed off each other’s strength and we really do not sit around in our tighty whiteys holding hands and singing Kumbaya. Matter of fact we never touch. The risk is just too high. And a room can smell like a brewery from all our hand washing. Sneeze and you can excuse yourself, thank you very much.

So back to hanging out with the counselor. These are people that help cancer patients knowing that most they see will not be back within two years. I suppose on this occasion we hammered her on how she dealt with that. I think as one we thought we could find a way to deal with death on a daily basis as we do.

There is an almost eerie feeling in the room. We have had to learn to embrace our cancer. Crazy don’t you think? Well in fact most of us get to love that part of us that is killing us. Think of the option. Hate? Well that ain’t working so well in life and it don’t change when it is part of you to hate. Could you hate your son if he in fact is a malignant cancer to all he touches? No! You have to love him. If you love your good hand more than your shriveled one you are person divided within yourself and that is the weakest stance – much worse than falling over during tree pose. ;-)

So how does a day go in such a fantasy world? At the end of the day you pray twice one in anger and one in thanks. Yes it is legal to pray in anger toward God. Believe me God don’t like fakers. So thank you thank you Lord for another great day. But before that you beg, in an angry tone not to let the days pass by so quickly. Another mark on the wall.

Did the Booze Get There First or Did the Devil and Self Hate Beat Evil in That Race?

Maybe Fear is a Door in for the Taker of Love

No Fear Just Looking For the Clear

So I hope we use the above to set us on a course of judging what/where is evil/hate. I just adore the notion of a devil on my left shoulder and an angel on my right. If you catch my drift that means they are on the outside. Far better than the ones inside my head. Can you imagine that devil inside you? Please let us agree we are talking about evil and not a person. And hate is the worst evil.

I hope you noticed my old lawyer slip and slide there. So now we have to decide if hate and evil are within us or with out us. And back up, wouldn’t it be cool if all cancer was perched on your shoulder and not inside you? It seems to me that as a preliminary notion that evil could be inside or outside or both. I do truly hope that does not satisfy your thoughts on the matter. It does not mine.

We all know the Hollywood story of the terrorist who came to be “because” of American bombing that killed his family. As such could be said of the Viet Cong. So they hate so much as to suicide bomb against all tenets.

Let me tell you a poorly guarded secret. My first cancer and probably this one were caused by Americans dropping bombs. The program is now called RECA which is the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act. I know it sounds nuts but the American bombs have killed a lot of Americans, especially us kids that ran around in the sun back in the sixties. They bombed over there at White Sands and us kids were having a great time in cutoffs down at the creek swimming hole. And those bombs radiated us kids. We are called “downwinders”. So clearly is the connection that argument cannot be made.

Now I reckon I have good reason to strap a bomb on or shoot ten people. I mean the US War Machine in the sixties killed friends and brought me to the brink of death, never to be fully well again. So someone told me to hate those horrible bastards. I tried. I failed miserably. For no good reason I did not have it in me. The hate just did not reside in my body. Oh sure that devil on my shoulder kicked the angel’s butt a few times but he could not enter. Maybe there was no room in there. Maybe the inn was full and so hate had to stand outside.

Now understand me, I am in full thanks to a man. I cannot say his name but his initials are Frank Atanacio. He posed this so important issue: Where does hate reside? Let us go for it and explore.

Best Voice and Excellent Presentation.

We Are Blessed

Lighten Up It Is Better Than Dying

So easy to say it is in the heart of the beholder. I cannot reconcile that with why I do not chose to hate. That sounds like a mental logical decision. My heart would not buy into that nonsense – Ah hah unless it was empty? Do hate and evil need an empty vessel? I don’t sit well with that. I know fantastic works by folks seemingly void of heartfelt stuff. I am almost assuming that hate lives in a place with no love. But there is something gnawing at me there. First of all we can choose what to fill our hearts with. Love for a child or hate for an infidel?

If you think about it much we find the brain/mind can frame in what way our heart gets filled. Like a cashier.

So let us get back to Frank. Hate does not simply reside in empty hearts. Yours and mine might be too full of love to let hate enter. But that does not mean that a burly bouncer of the night club of a heart will let hate in. An unguarded heart perhaps is where evil reside in the dark corners.

To be sure hate does not exist in the wind but needs a host. Do we collect rent money from hate and let them occupy a space? Or do we evict them at the first issue? I would like to declare that I have no unwanted tenants inside of me.

But that guy on my shoulder, when I lease to the angel he tries to slip in the door unseen.

So the good news is that like love does, hate does reside in the air between people like love. But the bad news is that folks can take it inside and nourish it. I would put it this way. Hate is a squatter and has no real place to reside. He is a trespasser. But it takes the body holder to evict him. Another host?

Nope! I am a host to cancer. It is a part of my body that must be accepted and loved like the rest of me. Only love can really defeat hate. When love is the commander and chief no army can then conquer. Sorry hate but the inn and the manger are full for the night. Go elsewhere. My love denies you rest or a place to reside.

So we just can’t get past it. Love and hate evil co-exist in the air. But love is more powerful. So the only space that hate can exist in is where there is no love.

I Love You

How easy is Love?

      Like Jesus said (as I paraphrase it) "Kick out the hate and fill the heart with love and there'll be no room for him. But, kick him out and leave the space empty, and he'll come back seven times worse!"

      Keep filling it with love bro!

      But let's just say that around '96 I had grown enough with my ultimate buddy to slam him. Well Jesus almost always responds the same; "How is that working for you Eric?" No order or direction except what is already in me by His grace.

      Eric, I’m very sorry to hear of your struggle with cancer. It’s good to have an accepting attitude, but is that the only option? This sounds like a good job for Fr. Solanus…”God can cure cancer like a tooth-ache.” If you’re not inclined to ask him, I will. “Thank God ahead of time.”

      That comment is a great read in itself. Thank you Elijah.

      My very fine dad was a surgeon and public health guy when I was young, When I was older we were on a WHO committee dealing with that issues of big pharma.

      But he was also a carpenter who built a beautiful "cabin" about 3,000 square feet for his family.

      His motto in carpentry was "cut to measure and jam to fit".

      In spirit I believe we should look a good measure and wait for it to fit.

      Yet, Eric, concerning justice...

      There is only one thing qualified to be called justice, it's "reaping what is sown" and "karma". What those terms actually mean is "by way of reincarnation every insect, animal (including fish and birds), plants, stones, crystals, disease or other matter we ever killed/altered/was to another ... man in your present case, during any incarnation we were in a previous incarnation." That is why in reading your piece I felt the urge to tell you "I believe you will definitely overcome it" because included in it is the completion of the justice, you were this cancer, in your past lives.

      Since I first read something by you I felt a "spirit" enhanced connection with you I've sought to strengthen ever since. Sone of your responses to me suggested as much so I continue to seek within me what WE must do to connect. I have long realized your condition "is to bless (be less than civilized) you" Jesus called "born again" and Genesis 3:24 say "is the way to salvation" require. That is the "certain since" you spoke of. Think on it, see if you can connect with it, I believe it's time is now. Remember it is said under different circumstances "physician, heal thy self" and I'm admonishing you, and anyone READING THIS, the "dominion" power is within each of us to heal ourselves, it all depends on where we are in our evolving from human/woman into man.

      Mr. Happy as no criticism yet it is Doctor Dierker by education. I hate those initials, it reminds me of Bureaucratic alphabet soup acronyms. So Eric or E is good.

      We studied for a week and I mean hard. Then we presented our paper on justice and another graduate would read with inflection and context. We would then meat in a unholy bar and try to kick our professor's ass.

      I did not learn a thing about Justice. Then law school and still nothing that rang true about Justice. And then a time with some monks at Popocatépetl. I was teaching at the American University of Puebla Mex. Walking barefoot for 3 thousand feet up and smelling the sulfur. Did not show me justice.

      So we will do a hub on that.

      Sometimes I think it is the simple act of kicking hard at the stool you stubbed your toe on. But in truth only the stool gets justice.

      Elijah my friend. I have this cancer that we like to call "wait and watch". Kind of interesting clinically. It is there and will generally never go away. But it in not malignant yet not really benign.

      Here is the cool part buddy, I can and will and have tried all kinds of great things that can make it better. So I am on a kickass trail to beat it. Raki was so cool last Friday and a prayer fest for intercession from father Diep is just uplifting.

      No, cancer is not a blessing.... - - Or is it in a certain sense.

      I say never loose sight of the little child within ourselves will keep us closer to the divine stage of being, we are saying the same thing.

      Here is something I have heard suggested: "The more we live God's laws, the more insights we are given to live them more fully." The concept, I guess, of learning to live "line upon line, precept upon precept." Almost like saying "Master one skill, then master another." Surely mortality seems too short for us to be likely to master them all. I think I mentioned a church companion I had who shared monthly visits to several church members. I had queried, "Eternity is such a long time, what will we ever do with all that time stretching out before us?" His reply was that he knew the first thing he was going to do, and explained "I'm going to learn to call everyone by their first name." There are some things for us to ponder.

      Love and hate. My eternal friends. They seem to hug my bosum like the mother hugs her heart of sacrifice.

      For out of this sacrifice is chiselled the seeds of blinding Love.

      I just made that up for what is essentially the obverse and reverse of the same thing called Love or Light.

      What is up Demas? I already replied to you but it is a no show.

      I believe you are Mormon. And believe that that theology of Christ is a living search. There is this place of "good works". And it fits here wonderfully. If we are doing good things for others where does time let in bad things. So I have asked God and he told me straight up "love without works allows a passage for the devil"

      PS. I always love the pictures of your family.

      Eric, I remember hating my hand after it was first crushed. And I held a grudge against my body because it did betrayed me. Now, my hand is just the "silly" one who doesn't like to work well.

      I try very hard not to hate anyone or anything, I try not to dislike anyone, but I do not always measure up. But even when I dislike them greatly, I am still civil and treat them with dignity. I would love if the devil never came closer than my shoulder, but he has been.

      Elijah what beautiful words penned within the Namaste of our lives. Bless your heart from mine as I am blessed by yours.

      One of my favorite spaces to go is: When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. ... Then people brought little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked them. Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

      I love my inner child.

      Eric, Washington State has "downwinders" as well. People who lived near the Hanford reservation.

      There was a time in my life when I was discriminated against; I was unfairly treated, severely wronged by people who had power over me and my career. I eventually resigned from my position, taking an early retirement at I time that I should have been ascending the career ladder.

      Resentment does begin to describe my feelings. Blind hatred is closer to the truth. Then one day it hit me--my outrage was not hurting them at all; it was only hurting the people around me who I love. That hatred was a cancer in my life. Excise the hatred and the cancer is gone.

      I am happier now that my heart is filled with love. There is no more room for hate.

      Eric, your statement, "It is a lie that I fell over, I simply needed to pick up my keys. 'which I lay close for just such an occasion'," in the opening paragraph caused me to LOL in the library, now let me finish the whole thing.

      You caused me to remember my namesake son, Elijah Alexander III the ex Linebacker who discarnated in 2010, who overcame his Cancer by accepting an experimental drug and began a Foundation for the drug - his name was removed from and it's name changed 6 months before a aneurism took his life - he became healthy enough to buy old houses and restore them before eliminating his body. I don't remember the drug's name now since the foundation's name was changed and I had foretold his dismiss before he was conceived so the cause of it I neither hate nor love but destiny.

      My take on love and hate is in a poem called

      "Love aka Indifference"

      The poem is the lines in “” and the others are it’s interpretation.

      “Love, a word which cannot be defined,”

      I have learned love actually means “to give respect to everything equally and without attachment or overindulgence”…

      “not what you do but a frame of mind;”

      … which liberates the mind by putting one in the differences of all opposites called unconditional love.

      “yet it does create an effect”

      Once one respects all people and things equally …

      “few are ever able to reject.”

      … the recipients all will at least return that much respect to you and for some time will often contemplate your difference.

      “It does not build empires …”

      Empires are usually built by forcing others to surrender to the control of military strength and is not done without force generally causing resentment.

      “by setting boundary lines, neither does it stake out claiming things as mine.”

      The only time someone who loves places a claim on anything is in the moment they are using it, the moment they walk away or put it down it is its own property.

      “It's not selfish to any at all,”

      As said, love claims no thing, …

      “not to rich nor poor, nor great nor small.”

      … it doesn’t allow classes to exist, there are none superior nor inferior and it recognizes a purpose for everything.

      “It's not bias in any light,”

      At some time during this half of the earth’s material cycle each of the four ethnics are world rulers…

      “not to red nor yellow nor black nor white;”

      and are one at a time the lesser states which means it’s about karma and not class.

      “but it does make every living thing your brother,”

      Earth, as are our bodies, is a conglomerate of living entities consuming one another to maintain themselves and the environment …

      “spirit your father and the earth your nursing mother.”

      … thus, THE spirit or energy called god permeates us all as our father and earth as mother feeds us making us interdependent on one another.

      To me, love and hate is interchangeable integrated in each other that our human - mind unable to comprehend all things - intellect separates into that we desire to be attached to and that we reject. Your article suggests to me you are not far from "the kingdom within you" which has the power to heal your condition and bring you back to the rock climber you show so many photos of. I suggest you look within in deep search for the "god" you are and use your condition as the catalyst of integrating it with the you of yourself you recognize. I believe your "new birth" is at hand. Most of what you say suggests that is so.

      Peace Brother

      We are called “downwinders” - I never knew that. Pretty sad that You're "collateral damage" in the mind of those operating the Military Industrial Complex. It is commendable that You hold no hate towards anyone for that but on the other hand, I often ask people: does hate help? Does stress help? Not in my opinion, so then, why hold on to such things?

      Anger can help if it is focused and directed properly but all in all, we always have that choice between Fear and Love. I very well know what You chose and good for You!

      I wouldnt blame you one bit if you hated X. Leaving you with a frightening cancer. But the sad reality is hate changes your body's chemistry and you suffer while the one that inflicted harm on you gets off scott free unless the justice system is working for you and you can somehow pain X wherever it will hurt X.

      Im sorry that this happened to you. I wish I had the words to comfort you or make things better.

      Just let yourself be loved a little more each day.
