If you looked into the heart of your enemy, what do you think you would find that is different from what is in your own heart?

A lot of selfishness.

Just a different perspective on the same topic. Love and hate, two sides of the same coin.

I do not think any enemy [ mine or another ] is that different from you.

[ On the frontlines of any war .. if whoever on the other side that’s that’s who you shoot. You don’t have time to negotiate or say “okay .. that person looks like me so I better not shoot him ” or else that person gonna shoot you. ]

The same problem, with a different solution.

Two mice once moved into the house uninvited. They became the enemy for the damage they were causing, along with a potential health risk. In their heart, they only saw a shelter that was large enough for sharing, as well as a free food source (dog treats on a shelf in the garage.)

When I read this question I thought it was asking in the abstract, not an enemy of mine personally. Probably most enemies in the broad sense are fighting for what they think is just, or have a different perspective on whatever is being disagreed upon. They generally are fighting for what they believe is right in, for a good cause in their hearts and minds.

No enemies here.

Depends on the enemy. If I was an Allied soldier fighting Nazis. Then that difference is clearly that goodness in my heart compared to the evil in his.

Other than that, then it’s difference in the level of stupidity in our heads, not heart, as to why we choose to become enemies in the first place when we could probably come into a compromise.

I don’t have any enemies, so I wouldn’t know! : D

My enemy is probably my ex-boss. He has a black heart, if he has one at all.
Keep in mind he was a pedifile, a rapist, and purposely gave a heart patient a heart attack.
He is quite evil.
No, we are very different.

My only enemy’s heart is fragile yet destructive. It’s destructive in an attempt to not be broken.

Different fear based illusions.

Anyone who is my enemy would be someone who doesn’t care about and love the living world. I’d see that there: death and a longing for it.
