I chose to start this blog because I was desperate for a way to share the things that I think and feel with as many people as possible. I see a lot of areas of society that – if we humans really wanted to – we could totally change for the better. These areas range from our personal relationships to the way we interact globally, from government organization to organized religion, from education to the environment to, of course, the economy.
I also know that there are a number of people who have interest in these areas and institutions not changing. I don’t think it’s some kind of giant evil conspiracy per se, but there certainly are people who are pretty desperate to not lose what they see as their “livelihood” in the face of a number of growing social pressures. I want to share my thoughts with those people, too. It’s natural to cling to the things that make up our identity – but at times we must learn to give them up in order to grow as a person, and further, as a society and as a species. Hence: Evolved.
I believe the root cause of most of our problems is the failure to see ourselves – the human race – as being connected not only to each other, but to all life, the world, and the universe. By seeing ourselves as somehow separate, we act in ways that hurt others while failing to see that we’re actually doing grave damage to ourselves.
So what is the solution? What do we need to do to reverse the damage we have collectively done?
What I see as the deceptively simple answer to these questions is love. Not the romantic but often possessive love that you see in movies – I mean the kind of Agape love that my Christian background taught me God has for us, and that we should have for each other. It’s a love that is unconditional, uninhibited, and far more than just a feeling. It’s a love that’s a lifestyle – an evolved lifestyle. Hence: Evolved Love.
I’m going to write about what I feel this lifestyle should look like here on my blog. Feel free to, lovingly, share your thoughts as well. I hope that you’ll join me in my quest to make this world a better place. May truth and love always prevail. ❤
“When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it — always.”
