Shall I Teach Hate? Shall I Teach Love?

Well five years later I reckon that look to the heavens yielded love.

Probably Hate I Wrong In All Forms

Let us just realize that no matter how we try and no matter how little recognition we get, we hate the haters. So let us turn that into the positive. Follow along and let us discuss and not hate.

Racial and Religious hates are not real. End of story. Eric Dierker may be a bit crazy but he has the ability, and always has had the distinct and clear ability to walk in different groups without agreeing but agreeing to talk. It is basically what he does. Eric simply does not insist that he is right. Perhaps everything is an octagon in 4D, perhaps a child’s notion of infinity is where it is all about. 7+ Billion and 7+ Billion rights? Just who in the hell is right? – Above my God given paygrade.

Do not get all worried about Eric’s faith and how he reads and meditates and prays throughout the day. There is no Satan out to get Eric. But Eric studies Satan in his perfect form of hate. “Know thine enemies my friend” and hate is absolutely nothing than a terrible enemy of love.

Let us get something else out of the way muy pronto. Hate is not the opposite of Love. Apathy is the opposite of Love. Hate quite literally is the love of wanting wrong for another or group. Hate is just another of the long line of loves. Tough love, brutally honest love, disciplinary love and of course Agape and on and on and on. (please do not forget my favorite with my wife – amore J

So if you accept that notion you need to go a little bit crazy. You have got to get into an ownership of your passions and your passions are love and only love. So if you love to hate. Please stay with as this may be as good.

Is it so wrong to be poor? It would appear that much hate comes from haves and have nots. And here I am who is in some society a have not. And my family thinks that writing sermons here makes me nuts. My wife is so cool, she is happy with a man with head in clouds. She does not need to squawk like a peacock. She has her faith and her son. The point being that I call BS on folk who hate because they are poor. Even the richest man could rebel in order to get love which he cannot buy.

I Think We All Have Riches -- Like This Song Makes Me Rich!~

And Which Son Makes Me More Rich?

What Would Eric Freak Out About Enough to Cause Hate?

Wouldn’t it be fun if everyone played destroyer type games on the electronic devices and then got up from their chair and hugged family members? Oh and then offered a hand to help and the words “I love you”. We are perplexed at the right wing and the left wing. Until now it has been about rights for everyone. But in hatred many groups want to limit other groups right to rights. I heard a notion of “Alt” today. I still don’t know what it means. I can reckon it is radicals on either end of spectrum of society. But the wording of “Alt” makes absolutely no sense.

Stop the presses for a second. Eric is a big old white guy. Nothing special. But he has been married to or dating 3 separate races. Is a bluish Dragonfly more precious than a brown one? And yet Eric loved each one partly because of their race and social status. How can one distinguish? The only one that is regretted is Anita from Puebla. A blond haired half German Mexican from Puebla.

Can I in my skin hate at all? I cannot. I just cannot. Thank you very much that is actually painful.

Let us take a trip down Christian workings. I would hope that you know that the Catholic church I visited in Santa Fe was different than the one I visited in Melbourne and that was different than the one in San Diego which was very different than the one I attended in Vietnam which was quite different than the one in Chollula, include Washington DC and San Francisco. And then we get down to Roman Catholic and Russian Orthodox and Luthern vs. Episcopal. Ladies and gents if you want to hate one another I can give you a reason.

And notice that was all Christian stuff – just imagine Shinto and Muslim and Buddhist and native American and on and on and on. Am I intrigued by hate of any against any? If you do skin tone or concept of worship as a barrier to good Love you die before you raise the first club. Perhaps I would act in such a way to send you to hell. But none of us moderates/normies think such cray cray.

If you think your world has reached a horrible point then we ask you to go talk with your neighbor. It really is not all messed up at all. Folks just tell you that so you can tune into the next edition.

Are You And Billions Like You Crazy?

Maybe I Am Insane? Maybe That Is What You Are Looking For

My Dad Loved Love.

What a wonderful world

I have been lead to understand that around 44 billion dollars in aid comes from the haves to help alleviate suffering of the haves not. I am lead to believe that most comes from you and I. It would not bother me if the hyped the numbers so say some less amount. My world looks at that as my wife writes a check every month to a foundation that gets our money where it is needed. My seven year old and I deliver blankets in winter and water in summer to our guys and gals who choose to live outside of a home and in our canyons. We do not hate them for their loitering and trespass and littering. We love them as we must.

Within the miles of my home we love and others love us. A door held open, a salute to a service member and a pie to our 95 year old neighbor. I know from some service work that our area is among the most diverse ethnic and nationality populated areas in the USA. Can you imagine even find here a slight dislike based on a preconceived notion of hate.

The tiny tiny minority whackos

So some group goes out with a hateful message to some and then some come out to batter the people with the hateful message? I think I have that right. Ugly hate attacked by opposing groups. OMG each horrible groups must be attacked by a group willing to do violence. Christianity is the overall most practice grouping today – tight race with Shinto and Buddhists and Islam. They do not condone this. Can you imagine sitting on your couch and thinking that by your news you know enough to get a baseball bat and run down the street to hurt someone?

Boom Boom Boom can you love a Nazi? Or how about a liberal freak? No you cannot but we do not buy your bill of goods to sell. Mankind must love the abominable. Mankind must love the haters. Mankind must put down the bat and take up the sword of love. This is not a viable choice my friends, this is our mandate from whatever you perceive as your heaven.

Sure I hate the haters, but I will go down to the diner and sip coffee with them and try to spread the Love that we are so surely given. My biggest problem here is that in my hood I cannot find these lunatics they only exist on TV or Radio. They are a very tiny fraction of life that gets the YouTube.

Follow my love and create an opposition to hate.

      Very nice comment, Thank you Lawrence. That nearly organic fact that love dissolves that which is bad is very true to me.

      'Perfect' (maybe a better word is 'unconditional') casts out all fear.

      If hate comes from fear of something, and love 'kicks it to the kerb' (kiwi expression) then if we practiced that love there'd be no fear, or hate!

      By the way, very sorry for the news from Las Vegas.

      Swords to plowshares, active hating to active loving of those who need it most, but don't look them in the eyes too long, they know they want the love you convey, but it frightens the tough guys.

      Dora, I count you a mentor though your tutelage is not one on one. If we take a quote, most assuredly best from the Bible, and read and reread and incorporate it into our payers and meditations it yields such bliss.

      I will say it again -- There is no better Bible reference "quoter" than you. And to have you drop by and leave a note makes me smile from ear to ear. It is an honor.

      Eric, you are one determined ambassador of love. My favorite quote from you today is: "Mankind must put down the bat and take up the sword of love." Long live Peace and Love!

      Linda I saw a man carted off to die by "police" and he died. 1999. That same country does not do that anymore in mass. Gov. thugs do not rampage the streets. There are courts of justice now.

      And that is because the United States becoming more engaged and because of our influence in war.

      We are talking millions and millions effected by us. Shut the damned TV off! It is bullshit.

      We will in the next 5 years bring food to many NKs. We will supply Somalia with water and we will protect women in Afghanistan from Tyrany and we will maintain our rights to fight verbally amongst our selves and we will all condemn hatred.\

      We are not sinking we are taking one step at a time and getting better.

      Oh my dear Eric, if you believe in "end times" do you think that is where we are? So much sadness and conflict and hatred. I just wish we could agree to disagree and just love each other. That is what our God wants us to do, isn't it?

      Thank you for another great article--and today it seems even more relevant. Peace to you my friend.

      Oh My Bill, I was trapped at car dealer for my jalopy. So I spent some time in front of a TV on a news channel. Yikes. 1. it was like they were trying to sell me something, I think a corporate agenda. 2. I am sure glad I do not live in their world - yuk.

      Hey I got dirt and family -- Happy as can be.

      It sure feels like 1968 for some reason. :( The news is not a fun thing to watch, is it? We all feel so helpless. But there is something we can, baby, love!

      Jo, I recently read a piece about adrenaline and dopamine. We all know about adrenaline junkies (guilty as charged as a youth) But they are finding dopamine addicts who need more and more like any other addiction. Anger causes release of dopamine. Yes that is a bit simplistic but a valid notion.

      Thank you for your encouraging comment.

      When I was getting a divorce many years ago I read someplace that the opposite of love was not hate, it was indifference. It took a while to get to that but that's the right way to live.

      Good message, Eric.

      To teach any concept of love except "Agape" - also known as (aka) "unconditional love" - is to teach hate because all others are a form are selfish and the foundation of hate. Genesis 1's man and Adam with Eve before eating from the tree of "the KNOWLEDGE of good and evil" were ecologically minded doing everything to best benefited the entire earth. It was only the curse of woman's [not a gender but "incomplete man" in need of a mate] attachment to her husband and the curse of the ground which forced the boy to till it that selfishness entered man and the earth. That makes any form of destruction "NOT for restoring the earth's ecology to its harmonious state" to be counter to "Agape" and a form of hate. What is being done is for "sense perceptions" and not to benefit the whole earth which is what hate is about, "doing selfishly rather than for the collective". Thus, when one does something for me and my family, my church, my school, my city, my state, my nation and any other "my" one can think of it is hate manifested. In that light, one can not say "I can not hate" because it is so integrated in selfish love that one doesn't realize it. The only love is WHAT IS BEST FOR THE COLLECTIVE.

      I realize that of the $44 billion given by "the haves" to benefit the "needy" only approximately $11 billion actually get there, the rest pads the pockets of "the haves".

      While working with a dairy farmer who also had beef cattle I noticed why may are as we are. The beef cattle were, for the most parts, still living as man lived in the garden, ate what grew, drank ground water, gave birth and lived in the environment. The dairy cattle caves never drank from their mother utter but milk from a pail which caused them to suck another calf's ear since sucking is a necessary part of mammals' development; they were born in a barn and never allowed out until the age of weaning, in winter all dairy cows slept indoors and when allowed out to get water in the mornings and evenings they drank and returned to the barn.

      Compare the two types of cattle to man.

      Genesis 1's and those man in the garden eastward in Eden lived like the beef cattle, when expelled from the garden Adam and Eve became woman while all Genesis 1 man drowned during the flood began living like the dairy cattle became woman. What "the tree of the KNOWLEDGE of good and evil" did to man was establish sense perception preferences which led woman - those not living ecologically - to develop things for their preferred comfort while "the sons of god", Noah's family represent, continued to live like the dairy cattle. Thereby, woman or as man-en-mass seek to comfort everyone else as they want to be comforted rather than looking at the undomesticated species of life and patterning ourselves after them to learn to live ecologically.

      Thus, generally speaking our sense perception's dependency is the cause of all of our hate which is not realized until willfully directed at other man.
