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...."
