Children must be taught so that they learn to understand love. This is possibly the single most important task of every adult on this planet. Love is an art worth studying, and sharing. It is worth finding and having in your life. It does not come without compromise and it has numerous side-effects. Should there be any doubt, know that the side-effects are worth it. Love is extraordinarily powerful. It cannot be consumed. It is ever-present and ongoing. It is like a phoenix, rising each time from the ashes. We can love over and over. We can love everybody in our lives differently. I do not believe that we love the same each time. Our love is shaped by the individual we find ourselves connected with. It is moulded by the children to whom we give life and learning. The love generated in the 1960’s and 1970’s is still circumnavigating this globe, its waves are still felt in our hemispheres. That kind of resonance never dies. We all have a lot to thank free love for. There was a lot of oxytocin-induced euphoria happening. Perhaps the permissiveness of that time did not do society’s moral code any good, and that permissiveness bred a contempt – or lack of respect – for one another that it was not possible at the time to express, but that period is punctuated by a big love and for a while that feeling made a real difference in the world. I believe it changed the arc of man’s path, there were that many believers. When you have a large sector of the population feeling optimistic and in love with life, life thrives.
Then people became disillusioned, and people are still disillusioned. That in itself could open an interesting line of enquiry – whether or not it is advisable in the here and now to realise that everything is an illusion? Perhaps it is wise to accept that we live our illusions. Must we consider that we became disillusioned because our leaders made too many empty promises, too often? When mouths and minds speak of nothing then we eventually hear nothing. That is the way with ears, tongues. Perhaps we are disillusioned because the scaffolding of this world is taking major strain where its religions are concerned. We feel like we are living a giant lie since no one – no two parties can agree – what God even is. If it can be said that we all base our lives on our belief systems then it can be said that what we believe is very relevant. Each of us. If we can find common ground with our vision for the future then we can make positive changes happen and relieve some of the strain on the infrastructure, which is ultimately source. Raw energy. Most of us take our source for granted and we fail to appreciate that although it does not have a beginning or an end it has limits. We must respect these limits. We must put back into the system what is given, always. It is time. We must all bend our heads towards mending the planet, the force of collective thought can change this world’s destiny.
