Standing on the Side of Love

"...Douglas-Klotz  took the three words “Love your enemies”  and offered an expanded translation into English  based on the layered meaning of love and enemies in Aramaic:

From a hidden place,  unite with your enemies from the inside, fill the inner void that makes them swell outwardly and fall  out of rhythm: instead of progressing, step by step,  they stop and start harshly,  out of time with you.

Bring yourself back into rhythm within. Find the movement that mates with theirs- Like two lovers creating life from dust. Do this work in secret, so they don’t know. This kind of love creates, it doesn’t emote...."
