Instead of hating the people you think are war-makers, hate the appetites and disorder in your own soul, which are the causes of war. If you love peace, then hate injustice, hate tyranny, hate greed - but hate these things in yourself, not in another.

How shall we seek real knowledge?
By renouncing knowledge.
How shall we seek salvation?
By renouncing our own salvation.
How shall we seek Existence?
By renouncing our existence.

From true emptiness  the wondrous being appears.

Shunryu Suzuki

Subhuti asked: "How can the practitioner who wishes to help all beings find enlightenment awaken to the complete and perfect wisdom?" 
The Buddha said: "This most subtle awakening comes about through moment-to-moment attentiveness. By way of attentiveness, there is attunement to the ways in which things manifest, such as form and consciousness. The practitioner awakens to perfect wisdom by becoming blissfully free from obsessions with habits, names, sense experiences, personal feelings, and with dread of dying and all the despair that goes with it. 

Prajnaparamita Sutra

A divine dance appears in the soul and the body at the time of peace and union.
 Anyone can learn the dance, just listen to the music.

Find ecstasy within yourself.
It is not out there. It is in your innermost flowering.
The one you are looking for is you.
You are the traveler and you are the destination.
In experiencing the ecstasy of your own being,
you have achieved the final goal.

You are carrying a masterpiece hidden within you, but you are standing in the way. Just move aside, then the masterpiece will be revealed. Everyone is a masterpiece, because God never gives birth to anything less than that. Everyone carries that masterpiece hidden for many lives, not knowing who they are and just trying on the surface to become someone.
Drop the idea of becoming someone, because you are already a masterpiece. You cannot be improved. You have only to come to it, to know it, to realize it. God himself has created you; you cannot be improved.

For whom are you looking? 
You are it. 
A man of deep courage simply looks in and finds it.

The imperfect becomes whole.
How true that is!
To become whole and
Return to the Source,
One must ever be in accord
With nature.
There is nothing in the world
So weak as water,
Nor anything strong enough
To overcome it.
The person of great wisdom
Is like water which,
Though benefiting all things,
Never strives.

Lao Tzu
