Love is Life
The universe would not exist without love -
The universe is not a universe of dead matter, or matter of any form. The leading pioneers in physics tell us that there exists not a single speck of matter in the entire universe, that everything we see, smell, touch, hear, and have our life in, is but the construct of 'dancing' points of energy organized by a vast array of harmonizing principles that reflect an immensely intelligent underlying design. We are told that not even the smallest so-called particles that construct the smallest atoms fall outside this pattern of moving points of energy organized by harmonizing principles of an immensely intelligent underlying design. If a single one of these harmonizing principles would not exist, not a single atom would be possible so that nothing would exist: no world, no planet, no sun, no galaxy, no universe.
Of all the terms that our language holds seven terms stand out that together describe the nature of the self-harmonizing universe that we are a part of. These terms are: Principle; Spirit; Mind; Soul; Love; Life; and Truth. It appears that the greatest of these are Life and Love. It appears that the pinnacle of this self-harmonizing universe is Life and that nature of the intelligence that is reflected in the universe is Love. There would be no Life without Love. Love is Life. This is also the essence of our humanity. Intelligence and love are one, and we are the tallest expression of it.
The principle of economics would not exist without love -
Economics is not the expression of greed. It is destroyed by greed. Economics is the expression of love. Economics is the organizing principle that makes the result of human activity evermore powerfully effective for building a richer world for human living and a richer civilization.
The principle of economics may be best recognized by exploring the difference between a service economy and an industrial economy. People working in a coffee shop, for example, are employed in a service economy. They provide a product that satisfies a need. But in an hour or two the effect of their labor ends. In an industrial economy, on the other hand, products are created that provode an enduring benefit. A worker who produces an automobile, for example, or a house, produces a product that benefits society for a long time, extending across years and decades. An industrial economy thereby provides the maximum benefit possible that human labor can provide. In most cases an industrial economy produces machines, which in turn produce products that simply cannot be produced by manual labor. Thus the principle of economics is to provid the maximum benefit for society as the effect of its labor. The principle of economics is not to relocate this benefit to become profits for a few who achieve wealth by clever means of stealing. Instead the principle of economics is reflecting the principle of the general welfare, or even the principle of universal love. Economics and love are one. The profit centered private monetarism is actually a counter-economic system, since after all, stealing is the denial of love.
An industrial economy is also an energy intensive economy. Take housing for example. Our present way of constructing housing is archaic. It is labor intensive. We cut trees down, shape them into planks and veneers that we glue into boards, and then nail the products together into houses that take months to be constructed. The end product becomes so expensive that only a few can afford adequate housing, and even those spend a large part of their living paying for it. But it doesn't need to be that way. In an energy intensive nuclear powered economy housing can be produced by automated industrial processes using liquid basalt cast into moulds that yield ready-made modules that are simply snapped together. The resulting housing would be several hundred times less expensive to produce, and be of a higher quality and more enduring. The quality of civilization would be enormously uplifted by this energy intensive automated process.
Unfortunately society has not reached this point yet, because it is not understood that real economics is an expression of love, instead of an expression of greed. Greed happens when one closes the door on love. Then the dark age of stealing from one-another begins, as if stealing society's wealth is easier than building and creating it. Which is not the case. Building is more enriching than stealing. The end-result of stealing is devastating. It is creating a world of toil, slavery, and poverty. There is nothing easy about that. Without love we simply don't have an economy, or any basis for creating one. A functioning economy is an expression of love.
concept of truth would not exist without love -
How can I say such a thing? Perhaps it is wise to take a look at how the perversion of truth came about.
The original concept of Christianity was build on a platform of lateral unity. God and man were understood as one in nature and as existing on the same platform. This platform was understood and demonstrated in healing. The healing demonstrated the truth of our humanity and our 'divinity.' Christ Jesus defined himself as both the son of man and the son of God, and even said: "I and the Father are One."
This lateral concept that unites God and man on the same level must have stung like a thorn in the eyes of the Roman Empire that existed on a platform of hieratical, vertical power. The Empire tried to eradicate the Christian notion of universal worth and universal love that is so dangerous to any empire. Thus the Empire killed the messenger to silence the truth, but the truth continued to unfold. The Empire stepped up the fight and threw the Christians to the lions to be torn asunder alive in arenas for entertainment in order to ridicule the truth. And that apparently failed also. And so the Empire resorted to its dirtiest trick. It embraced Christianity, but it perverted its form.
The lateral platform on which Christianity was demonstrated was replaced with the Empire's hierarchical vertical platform. On the vertical platform nothing is deemed equal. The resulting perverted new theology put God or Truth high onto the top of the vertical scale and out of reach, and mankind far below into the dust of the ground with no hope for it to ever see the truth. And in between the perverted theology set up a mediator, the Christ, to tell mankind what the truth is. Of course, since the Christ was dead, killed by the Romans, the Emperor or his appointed pawns took on the role of the mediator to 'dictate' to mankind what the truth is. On this vertical platform any arbitrary lie could be conveyed as the truth, and probably was, as it still is today. The song of today is: 'In Lies we Trust!'
That in a nutshell is the fascist system that evermore defines mankind as scum, evil, and even as a danger to the planet and a disease unto itself that must be cured by the medicine of depopulation. And that is only the beginning of the train of lies that unfolds as a train of violence and war.
The concept of truth has no meaning on the vertical platform. It never did. Anything can be labled the truth on this platform. Thus, the concept of actual truth becomes significant only on the lateral platform where the truth isn't dictated, but is discovered with the recognition of efficient, harmonizing, universal principles. On this platform the truth can be known by its healing effect and its effect in uplifting civilization. The proof of the pudding thus is in the eating. The proof of our humanity is in its uplifting effect. Here we find the nature of truth, and we find love at the same time, because the truth of our humanity is love. If there is no love on the horizon, than what is deemed to be the truth is but a lie, a lie about our humanity.
Likewise the sovereignty of self-government
of individuals and nations
Modern government has in many cases become the biggest thief among the mob of thieves that rob society. Big government is claiming evermore of society's living while providing little in return that uplifts civilization and enriches human living. Some day society will provide itself a government that is self-supporting and benefits society rather than being a burden on its shoulder. The Principle of Universal Love should be its platform. Society will get to this point one day when greed gives way to love.
If the universe had been constructed on the platform that society is presently building its existence on, the universe would have disintegrated long ago. Likewise will society disintegrate if it remains on the platform of greed, a platform without love.
The simple fact is that society is not sustainable on a platform of government without love. History proves this point to some degree. In the USA, the practice of income taxation (which claims a large chunk of society's living) was forced on society within the space of a few months after the nation's government had been induced (probably under pressure and corruption) to give society's currency away into the private hands of the greed-masters of imperial monetarism - the thieves that are now looting society globally. There are many similar aspects of greed-based profiteering sanctioned, supported, and protected by governments all around the world. As one would expect, on this trend society is economically and socially collapsing and is becoming increasingly ungovernable and financially bankrupt.
Government without love (which surrenders itself to imperial dictatorship) is simply unsustainable, and as a consequence society is regressing into chaos, fascism, and violence. And with it the imperial world itself, is destined to collapse. Both aspects are already happening and are far advanced. The imperial world financial and economic system has already collapsed so deeply into a state of bankruptcy that it is impossible for the Empire to back out of its self-created morass. The entire system is already dead beyond repair and is kept propped up as a hollow shell. It's government never had a foundation in universal principles to stand on. A system that is devoid of love has no principle. It is arbitrary, inhuman, and violent in nature, and absolutely dictatorial. The imperial system therefore cannot be repaired, but must be replaced with a system of principles that develops the human dimension of society and protects the sovereign rights of all.
The true sovereign self- government of society invariably reflects the principle of the general welfare, which is a subset of the Principle of Universal Love. Every great period of renaissance reflects these two principles, and the outcome were periods of profound cultural, scientific, spiritual, and economic advances - or simply put, periods of love.
Civilization would not exist without love -
Society's love for its humanity is far more than just a kiss on the cheek. It is a love for what sets us apart from the crude platform of the animal world, onto a higher platform, the platform of science, discoveries of principles, profound intelligence and its application in creative processes in the development of technologies, art, music, culture, economies, industrial production, farming, and so on. All of these define a human civilization. They are rooted in our humanity and are drawn from it by our love for what we are. Whenever this love is displaced for any cause, the process stops and civilization decays until society collapses into a new dark age or vanishes altogether. Inversely, when the causes that displace love and the empires that promote them, are displaced with a renewal of our love, then a New Renaissance unfolds on the horizon, demonstrating that civilization truly comes from the heart of love.
Without the efficient and powerful platform of love that our civilization has been built on, nine tenths of mankind would not exist. That puts love high on the agenda for a bright and powerful future. The questions that we need to ask ourselves are: Do we want such a future? Are we prepared to take the steps necessary to create such a future? Or would we rather not bother and choose the train to hell?
Thus, love indeed is life.
Love also is peace.
