Opponents are those who are mean, vindictive, heartless, impatient, jealous, self-righteous, and/or selfish. They like to criticize and attack you in hopes of taking you down personally or your career. I don't hate them. I only wish them peace and happiness. |
In April 2008, I made an invocation for the Hawaii State House of Representatives. My prayer:
"This prayer is based on two philosophies, Itoism and Karamatsuism. Members and guests, I would like us to make a silent prayer to our loved ones and even our opponents in hopes that they achieve peace and happiness. At this time, can we have a silent prayer.
