With all due respect, you are making an erroneous assumption; I have absolutely no “enemies” in my life and would never use the word “enemy” to describe any relationship that I have in my life. We have a symbiotic relationship with our mind just as we do with our physical body.
“Enemy“ is the word that you have chosen to use, and viewing my mind as an “enemy” would be similar to viewing my physical body as an enemy, because our mind is our mental body, just like we have a physical body and an emotional body, we also have a mental body. We exist as human beings on many levels simultaneously, physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.
Mental states are states of being and it is unwise to categorize a state of being as an “enemy.” I believe that we must train our mind, just like we must train our physical body, and if we do not train our mind it could, and most often does, become harmful to us; just like if we don’t watch what we eat, or do not practice physical hygiene, but that does not make it our enemy.
Just because a person develops a disease in their physical body does not mean that their physical body is their enemy, and it is the same with our mind. Regardless, as I have already said, I have absolutely no enemies. Calling something or someone an “enemy” is a bipolar, or dualistic, way of looking at life, i.e. friends and enemies are dualistic concepts, etc.
My view of life is mostly holistic, or at least that is what I strive for. It is all a matter of a person’s aptitude and perspective.
