The hardest task one can have is to continue to love his fellows despite all reasons he should not.
And the true sign of sanity and greatness is to so continue.
For the one who can achieve this, there is abundant hope.
For those who cannot, there is only sorrow, hatred and despair. And these are not the things of which greatness or sanity or happiness are made.
A primary trap is to succumb to invitations to hate.
There are those who appoint one their executioners. Sometimes for the sake of safety of others it is necessary to act. But it is not necessary also to hate them.
To do one’s task without becoming furious at others who seek to prevent one is a mark of greatness – and sanity.
And only then can one be happy.
Seeking to achieve any single desirable quality in life is a noble thing. The one most difficult – and most necessary to achieve – is to love one’s fellows despite all invitations to do otherwise.
If there is any saintly quality, it is not to forgive. “Forgiveness” accepts the badness of the act. There is no reason to accept it. Further, one has to label the act as bad to forgive it. “Forgiveness” is a much lower level action and is rather censorious.
Lafayette Ron Hubbard
On numerous occasions Pierre has been pressed to accept abuse and the badness of the acts of EVIL and GREED by other individuals and corrupt PR artists. I want to reiterate: ” “Forgiveness” accepts the badness of the act. There is no reason to accept it.”
