Love to Hate
Will: Hello, Jim. I hope you are well. I am watching the tapes and have a question. You must have been asked many times about everything being the self, and there is no point bitching that the world should be different, but you and I bitch about how crap people do dumb stuff and say dumb things in the spiritual world and the art world. I was just wondering how we justify that. I don’t know who these Neo-Advaita people are who get on your nerves so much, but aren’t they just you? This stuff interests me, as I am a real complainer at how fucked up stuff is, and am trying to work out some balance on it and wanted your thinking on it.
~ Your loving student, Will
James: Yes, indeed, Will, the ones we hate are us too. We love to hate them. But it is never “them” that we hate, just what they stand for. “Hate the sin, not the sinner,” because the sinner is the self under the spell of ignorance. God bless them all.
~ Love, Jim
