Are humans worth understanding love?
The question sounds too strange at the first instance but it’s worth thinking over.
The meaning of ‘humans’ is to be construed in a sense that it is one of the species among billions inhabiting on the only living planet in the tiny part of the universe. This species, which tend to live in groups called society and which is popularly known as ‘social animals’ has been deteriorating as far as the intellect is concerned. The above statement needs no proof as the truth is all around in the form of decaying planet and if this decadences is still unseen, the statement holds true even better. What more can be said when the environment which nourishes everything is in such a pathetic condition.
Humans, with their gift of intellect, become the most evolved species on the planet. The scope of intellect has been diverging in the direction of materialism to such an extent that the fundamentals of human life have been going missing. The extent of responsibilities is relative to that of role or position. The most evolved species have gone far so far in differentiating itself from the rest that it has nearly forgotten that it is nothing but a negligible part of the same universe. A recent study showed that a normal human being has more in common with chimpanzees than that with people like Aristotle. The depreciation in human values, the depreciation in human health, and the depreciation in human intellect makes this talk factual instead of mere opinion.
Love cannot be defined as flowing streams cannot be confined. The universe portrays love beautifully in countless forms in every second. The universe is like a systematic arrangement made up of different entities, each having its own significant role. Nothing is complete in itself.
In simple words, “love is nothing but the realization of truth or fact of incompleteness of oneself and the rest of the entities; and understanding that various combinations need to be formed to carry out the processes of the universe; and thus the combination letting the contributing entities to experience the completeness in spite of being incomplete.”
No matter for how long the process carries out or what are the contributing entities, such a combination can be called as love. For instance, a thirsty person feels restless and incomplete till he don’t get the water. A person appears complete in himself but the fact is he is not. Nothing is. Everything is interdependent which leads us to see countless forms of love as the combinations are countless.
So, it can be conferred that every little or big act done to complete some other entity for that moment is love. Providing examples would not appear prudent as the live examples are all around. The most elegant quality of love is that the participating entities lose their individual identities and give rise to something whose beauty can be described by no words. May be for this reason Lord Christ told everyone “love is god”.
In spite of being in ocean of love, all are thirsty, Trying to find love is not very much different than finding air, it’s all around but it can’t be seen, it can just be felt.
Along with the blessing of intellect, humans have also been provided with a curse of ego. The process of love demands the participating entities to lose their individual identities so that one unique identity can be created to complete the both but the human race is too much obsessed with the ego that their processes either end up with lust or unfulfilled expectations. The problem with beautiful processes like love is that they demand death like all other beautiful processes. Death of ego is essential for the process of love to happen as clash of egos can never turn out to be love. Both the processes go vice versa, clash of egos means subtraction while love means addition.
Earlier there were brothers, now there are armies…
Earlier there were hands to help, now there are hands to kill…
Earlier women were goddesses, now they are slaves…
Earlier love was a divine process, now it is misconstrued as lust.
The forms of love are endless. The perceptions of love are endless. It’s an end to all the worries yet denied a chance.
Love is beyond words, so it would be wrong even to think that love can be explained through words, words can only be used to express certain perception. Love has got endless.
Give love a chance, Give truth a chance.
