Someday, all the love you’ve given away will find its way back to you.
What is love? Forgetting about the specific definition that relates to emotion, what is love?
Per Deepak Chopra, “We think of thoughts as occurring only in our head, but that is because we experience them as linguistically structured thought, that is verbally elite and that speaks to us in our native language. But those same impulses of energy and information that we experience as thoughts, are the raw material of the universe. The only difference between thoughts inside my head and thoughts outside my head is that I experience thoughts inside my head in linguistically structured terms.
The impulses of energy and information, that create our life experiences are reflected in our attitudes to life. Our attitudes are the outcome of, and expressions of, self engendered impulses of energy and information.”
So if love is an impulse of energy and information, and if it is projected outward toward the world, it is conceivable that when we put love out into the universe, It may very well attract the same in response.
If you look at it in very rudimentary terms, when you love a puppy, the puppy returns the love. Why is that? The puppy has no concept of love. The puppy only knows that you are providing comfort and attention… and like any living creature, it responds.
If we are dealing with a plant and we water that plant with great attention, feed it and make sure that it has appropriate access to light, the plant thrives. It does not know anything about love, yet it responds in kind and sometimes bears beautiful flowers or fruit for our reciprocal enjoyment.
If it is so easy to see how loving behavior returns loving response, why is it that when we pull backwards to a macro perspective of humanity do we see the exact opposite transpiring?
The human quality of greed overshadows love and reduces love to a minor role, leaving huge volumes of society wanting and lacking.
Long-term, could this possibly be in our collective best interest?
Humanity continues to evolve, sometimes in a direction that I would perceive as being more positive and sometimes, exactly the opposite.
I try to live my life by projecting different forms of love out to the people whom I care about, with only the expectation that in doing so, I am putting more positive energy into the world.
In the immortal words of John Lennon, “You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us and the world will be as one.“
