Why is it that not everyone wants this world to flow with Love? Regardless of our diversity in thought and culture, surely Love is our bottom line–our harmony among all beings. Yet, we use land, natural resources, economics, religion, power, and–ironically–our wonderful cultural diversity as reasons to squabble or, worse, to make war. Not a pleasing observation to most of us.
What is Love? There are as many or more opinions about Love as there are people. To mention just two views–some people see it as an emotion, often based on conditions, and some people see it as far more. This latter concept composes the premise of my discussion–that Love is an unconditional non-personified God, known by many names including but not confined to Source Energy, the Gap, All-That-Is, or the eternal boundless field of all possibilities–a non-place of the unmanifest from which desire shoots forth and transforms into the manifest. Love is indivisible nonphysical energy, which yields a harmonious connection among us all in the physical. Love creates, permeates, and sustains. It is imperishable.
Yet, although enduring, Love can seem obscure–when masked by man’s greed, anger, distrust, insecurity, intolerance, and hate. And by man’s fear. Fear of lack–fear that there is not enough to go around. And fear of each other. We see evidence of this life-choking emotion in wars and other conflicts. And that which we observe, we create more of–such is the begetting of these evidential conflicts. In this manner, fear and other negative emotions–all the same, really–are perpetuated and so become even more real to us. Yet, they all simplify down to one thing–our perceived absence of Love.
Is there an answer as to what we can do about the caustic discord caused by this perceived absence that sometimes eats away at our diverse cultural societies and sometimes makes war? Well, we cannot change the world. But we can change ourselves. The dichotomy is that when we change ourselves, we influence the world. And we certainly change our personal universe. In fact, we each have a view of the world that alters as we alter our thoughts.
Your worldview is unique to you. It is as valid as anyone else’s view–whether the anyone else is a proclaimed holy man or an unassuming man. It is your intimate view of the eternal question–what is the meaning of life? Your worldview is a personal answer. As such, there can be no one answer that applies to every living being. Yet, various natural groups–people naturally united by having like minds–share some similarities. For example, there is a large group who generally believe that life is a process–a self-expression, with a drive to enjoy each moment, to create, and to fulfill desires or dreams.
This natural group along with all other natural groups and with individuals who are not inclined to any group whatsoever create perceptual reality. In other words, we all create our reality. All of that which we experience through our minds–thoughts, dreams, visions, transcendence, altered states of consciousness–lead to our creating our outer reality. Yet, our outer reality affects our thoughts as we take in objective information through the five sensory senses even as we are taking in subjective information with the sixth sense–given that intuition is a sense. As such, the mind integrates a man’s current thinking with the constantly incoming data. It automatically evaluates the data for the elements it wants to use and thus forms new ideas. And this concept leads us back toward Love.
Because–although our individual reality is our own and the mind experiences on which our reality is based are our own–all mind experiences burgeon from the birthplace of all thought–the unmanifest, embedded with dynamic desire–the timeless, non-place of boundless, eternal Love. Love is the embracing, joyous, endless energy that adores all of creation–countless universes with countless probabilities. Each of us helps to create our perceived universe from this infinite Love. We process information from its (our) unmanifest and from its (our) physical creation.
But if our thoughts filter through the choking emotion of fear, our worldview and thus our universe are very different from what they are when our thoughts flow easily through Love. Thus, we essentially create through fear or through Love. When we create through fear, we lose sight of our innate goodness and engage in conflict. But when we feel Love for our individual selves, for other human beings, for animals, and for nature, then we operate from inspired thought and we take inspired action. As such, our physical world then reflects the indescribable charm of its nonphysical birthplace, Love.
This charming reflection is a natural occurrence. It cannot be forced. There is no state of consciousness–even one that is purely imbued with the higher, faster vibration of Love–in which any one of us can control other people or change their beliefs. We can just tend to our own. And, by our personal example of living life through the clarity of Love, we not only connect with others who are doing the same, we may gently influence for the better those who are living with fear or with any other life-hindering emotion. Ultimately, though, through the clarity of Love, we recognize that each one of us is doing his best to live his life, whether or not we agree with how he lives or with the choices he makes.
And with that recognition, we cannot judge another man’s worldview or his behavior. We don’t know his experience–we don’t have his perspective. And so, while those who perpetuate war and poverty seem wrong, how can we condemn them? We can only instead make choices for ourselves–to go to war or to stay home; to succumb to greed or to share; to cause pollution or to go green; to criticize or to praise; to complain or to appreciate; to hurt or to help, to hate or to love–or to do any shade of any behavior, interpolated and extrapolated.
All of this, then, is my answer to myself as to why not everyone wants the world to flow with Love. Stated succinctly–not everyone has that state of mind. No one has to agree with me on this–other opinions are essential and inevitable. And any endorsement is unnecessary–but certainly appreciated.
In light of my worldview, my ongoing wish is for harmony among cultures–meaning races, religions, cults, traditions, institutions, and you name it. My wish includes complete personal freedom for all individuals, kindness toward each other, health, abundance, joy, world peace, and anything more that Love represents. I feel appreciation of Love–All-That-Is. I honor everyone and everything. And my only advice to anyone who is listening is this–let no one make your choices for you. Make your own. You have that inalienable, innate right. With all that said, I wish you pleasant dreams–may you live the life you want to live, regardless of how those around you to choose to live theirs. And may Love be your means.
