Whether it’s directed toward self or another:
Spiritually, responding with hatred shuts down any desire to seek understanding. Hatred creates intolerance, self-righteousness and, believe it or not, shame. Why shame? Because deep down inside we know that it’s wrong to hate!
Physically, hatred can be a key component in the following conditions: arthritis, eye issues, heartburn / indigestion, liver disease, sinus problems.
How to change the pattern: If we feel hatred toward someone, try to understand why. There are plenty of people out there who behave horribly, so there will be lots of “growth opportunities” for us. Remember, that which we dislike most about others is within ourselves.
