"Hate, it has caused a lot of problems in the world, but has not solved one yet." - Maya Angelou

A few days ago, a friend had shared this post with me on FB.  I am not big on FB, I use it to let our fans know when we are playing and when I am teaching a community yoga class.  It seems to me that FB is a tool that is used to spread a lot of hate, anger and mis-information.  But, when my friend shared this wonderful quote by Maya Angelou, I had to share it too.  In my heart, I keep believing if we all raise the level of our vibrations, good and love will win out.  It has been interesting, so many others have shared my post.

The quote is just such common sense.......one would think, that after awhile, we'd all get it.......that hate is a destructive force, one that is used in politics and religion......it creates fear, and breeds more hate......and that all the hate in the world has not solved anything.....but it has made a lot of people rich and powerful.

So maybe, the next time, we feel fearful, the next time we are being manipulated by political and religious leaders, we stop the hate........just refuse to let it grow and instead, send blessings and love to those that are different, those that are unlike us.  The hate has to stop, it spreads more quickly than the most virulent cancer.......it kills the young and old.....it destroys countries, and families.....and those that spread it so readily, do it with joy in their hearts and a twinkle in their eye.

We can stop it, we can stop the hate.......it is not too late.


  1. Hate is such a negative counterproductive thing. But unfortunately many find it easier to feel this rather than to try the opposite! Very sad. Take care

  2. I avoid negative comments on FB or blog world...I'm ok with that method.
