The center line and the homeostatic tendency of life always shift toward harmony and equilibrium. When there is movement away from that center line, an equal and opposite reaction occurs in response. With all the fear and hate in the world, what better opportunity could there be to create the reverse polarity: LOVE!
Depending on your perspective, you may think the way to make things better is with more or fewer guns, more or fewer troops, the same or different politicians or policies. Unfortunately, those just address the symptoms and are evidence that there is a deeper underlying cause lurking beneath the surface.
The challenge before us is not one of bad behaviors; it’s a challenge of consciousness and philosophy. Contradictions in these areas lead to destruction and the amount of destruction will always be relative to the level of the contradiction. When we believe in something and then act in an opposite manner to that in which we believe, we create friction which slows us down and keeps us from fulfilling our true potential and becoming the best version of ourselves. However, if you keep in mind the tendency for things to come back toward center line, the raw materials for removing contradictions and shifting consciousness are always available. It’s just a matter of dialing in to those frequencies and operating on that particular wavelength.
My contention is that if we could generate a strong enough vibration of love, some or all of those horrifying behaviors would recede as fewer unhappy and confused people will choose to perpetrate awful crimes on their fellow human beings.
Every spiritual tradition addresses this issue in its own way as do many thought leaders. “No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion,” said Nelson Mandela. “People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” John Lennon, too, reminds us that “All you need is love, love; love is all you need.”
Only love has the power to conquer hate. What will it take before our culture accepts this and acts accordingly? It’s something to think about for the New Year.
