Hate exists in the past and the future.
You cannot hate in the present — try, and you will be utterly impotent.
Try it today: sit silently and hate somebody in the present,
with no reference to the past or the future…you cannot do it.
It cannot be done; in the very nature of things it is impossible.
Hate can exist only if you remember the past:
this man did something to you yesterday — then hate is possible.
Or this man is going to do something tomorrow — then too hate is possible.
But if you don't have any reference to the past or the future –
this man has not done anything to you
and he is not going to do anything to you,
this man is just sitting there — how can you hate? But you can love.?
