The Transforming Power of Evolutionary Love
~ Gwilda Wiyaka ~
All of the religions of the world speak of the power of love. Jesus left but one commandment – to love one another. Love has been described as the most powerful force in the universe.
Studies have shown children fail to thrive, and even die, in the absence of love, even when their other needs are well met.
All of our accomplishments and aspirations can be condensed down to the need for love and approval. Advertising and marketing utilizes thinly veiled suggestions that their product, whether makeup or a fancy new car, will attract the love we need.
I have seen love used as a barging tool. “I will love you, if….” Or, “If you love me, you will....”
Love has been withheld as punishment in an allegedly more humane parenting technique, although now it is proving to be more damaging than a good ol’ fashioned beating.
But what is love? This powerful force that directs our lives and motivations is something few people understand. Even more mysterious, what is self-love, unconditional love, or universal love?
What role does evolving our concept and understanding of love play in evolving as a race?
