The Anti Love

Posted: August 16, 2009 in Uncategorized

Pardon moi for being so absent in ze blogosphere as of late!
Been out of town all week and just got back home a few hours ago.

Seated on a straw mat on a rooftop overlooking that divinely bigass rock in Kuru earlier, I scribbled down a little something outside my usual comic sorts…

Hate takes a lot of effort. Real hate.

You have to get up, make a conscious decision not to talk to or about the hated person, and to scoff disgustedly when the person is talked about.
You have to cringe at the thought of the person.
Reprimand yourself when the person should dare come into your train of thought except for the purpose of mindful hate.

You’ve got to avoid them at all cost, lest an encounter encourages you to express your hatred, which again takes work.
Shall I count the ways in which I hate thee?
Make a list in your head of why you hate them, and why they can certainly never be unhated.
You must dedicate to them a spot in your memory as a spited person for later reference.

It is often an utterly useless obsession.
Much like love, exactly like it in fact, except an opposing mirror reflection.
Who said love and hate are opposites? They’re the same passion and the same devotion, different fruits from the same type of seed.

What really is the opposite of love then?
Total and complete apathy.
Cold indifference.
The either way, I don’t care.

It’s not the hate that is part of war and terror and tyranny that chips away at our worldly system.
It is the rest of us who sit outside it all and cannot bring ourselves to care about things that don’t concern us directly.
We sit here and ooze forth in abundance the human condition of vut ta do, a small sentiment of indifference that even the hippies fail to realize is the destructive ugly antithesis of love itself.
