"But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you." (Matthew 5:44) (2 min 38 sec)

    1. Jesus' teaching to "love your enemies" is a radical invitation to extend God's love to all people, regardless of their behavior or our perceptions of them.

    It is a call to see beyond the illusions of separation. It is a call for us to recognize the unity and innocence in all beings.
    The true nature of reality is love and anything that appears to be contrary to love is merely an illusion created by the ego. When we perceive someone as an "enemy," we are buying into the ego's story of separation, judgment, and attack. We are forgetting the truth of our shared identity as children of God.
    Jesus' instruction to love our enemies, bless those who curse us, and pray for those who persecute us is not a call to be a doormat in the face of abuse. It is an invitation to see past the ego's perceptions and to respond with love and compassion in all situations.
    Whenever we attack or judge another person, we are really attacking and judging ourselves, because we are all one. By extending love and forgiveness to our perceived enemies, we are releasing ourselves from the cycle of guilt and fear, and aligning ourselves with the truth of God's love.
    Loving our enemies does not mean agreeing with their actions or staying in harmful situations. It means recognizing that their hurtful behavior comes from their own pain and confusion, and choosing to see the light of God's love within them, even if it is currently obscured.
    By blessing those who curse us and praying for those who persecute us, we are invoking the power of the Holy Spirit to heal our perceptions and to extend miracles of love. We are choosing to see with the eyes of Christ, which recognizes the innocence and wholeness in all beings.
    Jesus' teaching is a powerful reminder that love is the only true reality, and that by extending love to all, we are aligning ourselves with the truth of our being. It is a call to let go of our judgments and grievances. We are the channels for the healing power of God's love in the world.
