This is what the great Author had to say about life. And in this physical world it makes sense. However, being a Spiritual being, I think differently.
I think you should not care if you are being Hated or Loved, simply because both situations are going to affect your decisions and judgement.
Every situation in life is usually classified as either good or bad. But is it really so? Many a times a seemingly good situation results in a heart-ache and even a heart-attack! While a seemingly situation results in a Good Gain!
What I am trying to say is, one must try to get out of the mindset of 'What people think about me!'. Do what you truly love. And do it with Intention. Do it with intention of service. If you do it with intention centered to your benefit, it sure will create problems.
Whenever you are doing something REALLY SELFLESSLY, no one is going to Hate you. No One. I repeat again - No one will Hate you. But if you mix even 0.1% selfishness in your work, problems will arise, if not now, then surely later.
