Look with the eyes unclouded by hate

I heard this line in a Miyazaki movie and I remember thinking at it after the movie ended. I wondered what or how is to look with eyes unclouded by hate. Why hate? I am going to add here the entire quote...

You must see with eyes unclouded by hate. See the good in that which is evil, and the evil in that which is good. Pledge yourself to neither side, but vow instead to preserve the balance that exists between the two.

In my healing journey I inevitably got to ask myself what is good and what is evil. In a christian approach based on the dichotomy good or bad, white or black, my view in the start was based on an opposition. I saw the healing on the white part of the spectrum, as love, connection and release. This changed on the way, and now I see the healing as the way to reach both truth and connection. Truth of the entire universe of one's being, with what we define as good and bad and different areas of grey and connection, as part of all and balance. I feel is no absolute good and evil, but different degrees of in between and mirrors that show us where we are. Equilibrium in us reflects in equilibrium outside, self truth and vulnerability leads to connection. The journey to authenticity is not easy or straightforward. Has loops and obstacles and liberating parts.

Will close to my view on why hate? hate derives from attachment and self definition, respect and identity as a part of the sides. Hate fuels the action and narrows down the truth to the niche that fits, limits. So seeing with the eyes unclouded by hate supports seeing the different facets of people, events, plants and animals and of us as a part of it all. Compassion. Peace and truth. Acceptance of what cannot be changed and improvement of what can be.
