Love is all we need.
Throughout everything I have encountered in life there is one thing I have never understood is why so many people are filled with such haste and anger towards each other at times. The main reason these emotions exist is because someone disagrees with the other, to the point they cause destruction and sometimes death to the other individual. In my short time here on this earth, I would like to help people. I would like to live in happiness, in peace. I don’t understand why people don’t see that there is room for all of us here on earth. It could provide for everyone, letting everyone benefit off of it. Still pride gets in the way, blocking the idea of peace and love in its entirety
Out of everything man has created, our oldest and most disturbingly effective invention is the ability to form hate towards one another in our own hearts. The deadliest weapon man has ever created was neither the bullet nor the bomb but an ability to justify the idea and reason to ourselves that is okay as humans for us to look to our fellow man as different simply because of the color of their skin, culture, their social class, economic standing or creed. We were all taught at a young age not to trust people we see as different. To not befriend or play with those who come from a bad home life because they are considered a bad influence. We are all taught at a young age to not accept those who believe in a different God. But try to convert or make them conform to your beliefs and transform them into what is considered acceptable to you.
But deep down in every man, woman and child’s soul, we know that this isn’t right. We as humans are born into the world as something pure. We are born with love and passion. We are born in tranquility. We are not born with hate, we are taught to hate. We are not born with the knowledge of right and wrong or what is normal and what is different. We are taught to notice the difference.
We are raised to believe that in any situation involving a disagreement, conflict must ensue and one must always be right. We build machines to fight wars, to inflict pain and destruction to prove our points. But why? Why must we live like this? Why must we carry on this way? If we can build machines that fly or bombs that can destroy entire cities, why can we not build machines for hope and peace? Why can we not build something that loves?
Humanity and the way life as we know it could be inveterate and perennial. It could be free and beautiful. But throughout the course of history we have lost sight of that. We have lost the way. We are led by greed. We have let the idea of power, fame and wealth triumph over compassion, humility and oneself ability of upholding a reverent character.
We let the wrong overthrow the right. We place physical beauty on a pedestal to worship rather than praising those who give to those who are in need. Technology has singlehandedly connected the world uniting every culture as one. Still we do not look to it in that aspect. We have taken Humanity and the great opportunity that has been placed in our laps to seclude and surround ourselves behind stronger barriers to keep out those we don’t want in. But ask yourself why don’t we want to let them in? Why can we not love them as if they are blood? Why can we not love them as if they were our neighbor? It’s all we have known. It is up to this generation to break that pattern.
I challenge you to do this. Be an orator to those who can’t speak, be the hands to those who can’t feel. Give shelter to those who are without the comfort of a home. Shine a light to those who have no guidance. Be a positive influence and save those who have lost sight of the path and are deemed “past the point of saving”. As humans we all have the power of free will, we have the ability to think for ourselves. So follow your heart to places you want to be instead of concreting yourself in corner society tells you need to be. Stay young and foolish. Treat others as if they were you. Keep your innocence, honesty and good morals in your shirt pocket or someplace that is close to your heart. Think less and feel more. Rise above present day standards and make your expectations something that is full of truth and righteousness. All men, women and children are created as equal. All of us have the ability to break down the barriers we surround ourselves in. Change will occur when you take action. Take advantage of the opportunities we have in front of us today and be the change you want to see. We must find a way to live as one and we must find a way to love deeper
The idea of loving more is not impossible nor is it something that is out of reach and unattainable. It is only impossible and unattainable if you do not have the will power to accept love, to show love or to feel love. To simply let love into your hearts. We are born to love, not born to hate. We are not born to destroy or spread violent emotions towards others, not to spread anger and hostility. The unloved are the one who hate. The unloved are the ones who have fallen victim to a machine that thinks and feels for them.
We as human beings were created out of a moment of passion and love; therefore we must dedicate our lives to live to love one another. It is foolish to do otherwise. We mustn’t fight for power, we mustn’t fight for wealth physically, we must fight for wealth spiritually, mentally and ethically. We mustn’t fight for a cause that was created in the mind of a greed driven politician, dictator or leader, whom we will more than likely never meet nor see. We must fight for our children’s future and the continuation of our species. Hate and ostracizing those who we deem as different will not bring us together, but will pull us apart leading to the fall of man. We must fight for happiness. We must fight to free our minds from the things that is considered “everything we have known”. We must fight to progress the idea that all men are to be viewed as balanced, man in its entirety deserves equality.
If you are weak in spirit, force yourself to grow stronger. Realize what has happened to us, to the human race. The human soul, the character and the heart of man was never meant to be controlled or taken advantage of. It is not what we were created for; we were created to inflict benevolence and clemency rather than to inflict manipulation and antipathy. We must put an end to those who curb us, those who tell us how to act, how to think and how to feel. We need to start a vicious war to put an end to their ideals and their standards. We must fight, using love as our weapon and compassion as our ammunition. We must fight their war of hate and manipulation with peace and grace. We must use forgiveness and understanding as our propaganda to show those who are at the direct opposite of our forefront on the battlefield, that we don’t fear them. But love them in the most abundant way with our entire hearts.
My argument is simple. Love IS the most essential component to stabilize mankind’s existence. So I challenge you to do two things on behalf of saving our species. Love more and Love deeper.
