No Hate Zone

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for a really good meeting on Step 6.  It's all about letting go of many past behaviors and thought-patterns so that I can be my best.  Every day.  I hope that I'll always remember to use this concept for the reminder of my life.  If I don't, I stand a relatively good chance of a relapse.

for my spiritual tool box

that many years ago, I removed the word "hate" from my everyday vocabulary.  It's so negative and ... and ... hateful.  Occassionally I accidentally use it, but often correct myself.

The worst sin toward our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them:
that's the essence of inhumanity.
- George Bernard Shaw

I try not to use that word too. It is just too powerful of a word to throw around.

I don't use that word either. Hate is not what I feel today. Have a good day, Dave.

I too don't like to use the word hate unless I'm refering to beets or figs.
