How is love and evolution interconnected?

If indeed love is a resonant harmonic, then a case can be made for evolution being the evolution of love itself. From the first spark of life ignited by the wave of light impregnating the particle of matter on Earth, every stage of evolution has involved two things: greater connection, and greater awareness.

While we should beware of anthropomorphizing cells – they hate it when we do that – in a very important sense, when single cells joined to become multi-cell organisms, they “surrendered” to a higher level of organization, and “agreed” to live in harmony. In other words, love.

The same has been true of individuals affiliating in tribes, and tribes affiliating as nations. At each stage, individuals (or groups of individuals) have become aware of how connecting in community would enhance their well being. Taking a cue from the Iroquois Nation, America’s founders designed a system where individual states gave up their right to arm themselves against one another. Think for a moment what it would have meant for states to have armed borders, and the inevitability of a border skirmish. Clearly, America’s prosperity has been due in part to not having to spend precious resources defending against other Americans.

On a worldwide scale, imagine what we could do with the trillions of dollars we spend on weaponry. Certainly, an argument can be made that while the vast majority of us may be peace loving, we would still have to defend ourselves against those who aren’t. This is true. However, we are all too commonly mobilized by our “leaders” against a perceived enemy, when in actuality the true “enemy” is the field of beliefs that reinforce an absence of love and the misleaders who manipulate that field.

  3. I agree, I think many people not just allow themselves to be manipulated but also they are sabotaging themselves (old beliefs, ego, unsolved questions…). And we are slowly evolving because many many people don’t really realize / know what love is, I mean the true love, the pure essence of everything and everyone, the most powerful ‘thing’ / power that exists… We must feel and live the love in every moment of our live, with that we are elevanting our vibe and really evolving…

  4. I fully agree. I really do believe, the majority of us is willing to live in peace with each other. Unfortunately the minority seems to often have the leading position in a land. I think we more often have the wrong leaders in the lands of our world. I really feel so sad and also a deep anger about killing people, especially children and families. Whoever wants to fight should go to a certain place and fight with likeminded people. The suffer or trauma for each killed or injured human being is so huge, that I don’t see an excuse to make war at all. And there are other ways to stay together and to say NO if human rights violation takes place in a certain land on the earth. More weapons create more war. War creates huge suffer. This is not the way to live in peace with each other. It is a way to behold the power of certain minority of weaponed leaders. And last but not least I more and more be aware of the weapon manufactury and its powerful influence to shape policy all over the world. Yes, there could be so much good things be done with the money, spend for defence.
    I believe there is no evil in someone – many of us are just misleaded because of their fear. The source of each action on earth is love, just sometimes misleaded through fearful thoughts. I really like the last sentence of your blog. Thanks a lot. 🙂

  5. In Scientific American of this month there is an article about how cells, which are normal, start behaving like cancer cells when their borders are being pulled to change their shape. It reminded me about how nations get violent when someone tries to change the border (by invading and expanding their own country).
    Just like a nation consists by the grace of its inhabitants and its ground, a body exists by the grace f its cells withing the space of the skin. Like a nation governed by love and compassion thrives, a body governed by love and compassion does the same.
    It is so very logical to see that our future lies in togetherness. And this can only happen if people love each other and themselves. Thank you for your blogs, very inspiring.
