It is my experience and understanding that unconditional love can solve world's mutiple problems on different dimensions of life: physical, mental, emotional, relational, natural and environmental. Love unites people regardless of external or outward differences. Love is sharing. Love is giving. Love is offering. Love is serving and nurturing. Love is connecting. In the world we live in there is a lot of divsivenes. We need to find a common ground based on emapathic underrstanding and compassion to respect people with different ideologies without fighting and hating.If we do not wake up the future looks very dismal and dark. Love can remove that darkness.
I have friends with different political and religious ideologies. We have been able to maintain our friendship by having an emapthic and open-minded and open-hearted stance. Differences do not create distances by empathy and compassion-the core components of love. It is not always easy to maintain equnimity and balance. If we do not maintain that stand life becomes a battlefield, causing a lot of interanl emotional damage. I have learned not to give up but to persist with compassion and humbleness.
What helps me stay rooted in love? As I have mentioned before, open- mindedness and open- heartedness, empathic understanding and compassion and humbleness help me stay rooted in love.
