Good morning. (Good morning)


Let's talk about forgiveness.


Have you ever hated somebody?


If you have hated somebody, please raise your hand.


Do you still hate that person?


If you look around, all the religious conflict is based on the ability to not forgive, right? It's born out of hatred because of differences of belief.


That fanatical Islamic community, they don't need any drugs, they purely hate Western society, especially America because it goes against what they believe.


And what they believe is absolute. Nobody else is right other than them. That fanaticism is fueled by anger, its some kind of self-righteous spiritual anger in the name of God, borrowing the name of God.


That's why they can kill themselves and teach young people to strap bombs on them selves and kill as many as they can.


And it doesn't stop there; if they could they would create more mass-destruction if that is doable.

But how do you stop this? That is by a reality based on spiritualism.


What about hatred just based on an intellectual level?
