Enemies is a harsh word. In fact, I don’t have any harsh enemies. It’s not my way. However, I make people my enemies when I judge them. The judgment is the enemy because it keeps me from atonement, at-one-ment with God. If I can pray for my enemies by releasing all judgments, then they won’t be enemies. I will just have atonement--love.
It sounds like a good idea. It IS a good idea, but one I will have to work on for as long as I live. Late in her 101 year old life, my mom would bring up the subject. She, who was very close to God, was still working on it, knowing deep in her heart that judging was a barrier to love.
