Forum Post: Love is the principle we need

It might sound cheesy after all this time that Love was absent and failed to bring about the change we're looking for, but i am convinced, that it can only be achieved through it. Love is the only force inside the human being that can unite mankind and establish this global community that goes beyond nationalism, racism and capitalism.

People are used to these ideologies and that money runs their lives and all obey to its ways. All are struggling to get more and grow their pile. It has become a life style. Its all about earning and spending, buying and selling. You play you pay or else you are out.

People are taking it to the streets, b/c where else can they gather? Everything is owned and occupied by someone, money rules us all. And money has imprisoned our humanity and feelings to a high degree.

The idea of occupying a public place has a lot to do with overcoming this dualism and schizophrenia of a partially private and public person/society.

In private you may be yourself together with your family and friends, show your love and affection for them. In public you ought to act like a stranger to everyone and wear the firm mask of the business person, you ought to act reserved and cool and unemotional, you ought to function without personal influences, b/c we know that's how this system works. You are not supposed to be yourself, when you are "out there". You are supposed to fit in and be quiet, be the working horse they expect you to be.

Now if we want to get free from this greed-driven, materialistic system we have to rip off the masks of our public existence and become all private. We need to continue to have a strong public presence, go out there and be ourselves in public. Make them understand, that their attitude is a vain obsession and that human life is so diverse and wonderful and cant be oppressed and controlled by the ways of money.

What we really need to grow, is our sympathy for each other, feel the joy of being all human, no longer pretending to be a system drone. Every person is affected by a real sign of Love, even the bankers.

The problem is not a single person, or a group of people, who allegedly run the show. The problem is this dark and stubborn mentality of greed and egoism, that we have yet to abandon and to overcome, expose how irrational and ignorant it actually is.

What would you do, if you were rich? Would you be posting here or rather drive around in your Porsche or Lamborghini and show the poor the middle finger? Would you still be so enthusiastic for this movement? Are we mentally ready for this? Have we yet convinced ourselves, that we want this deeply and truly? Are we ready to step out of darkness and experience the dawn of a new humanity?

Yes, we can talk about transition. But maybe this formal concepts are hollow and half-hearted, if we cant back them up with the notion of Love. We have to imagine our real desires and inspire ourselves. We want more, we demand more, more of ourselves, more of others, more of this world and of this life in general and we feel, that it is the time and we deserve it. But the one thing, that was said to run this world has now become an obstacle. We can clearly see the flaws of the money-regime and how it no longer suits our demands. It is merely a cocoon now, a prison, that is getting tighter every day.

Love is the old and new demand. It makes us care and discover our sympathy for others beyond the borders we have known. It makes us whole and transforms us into fulfilled beings. We have become global thinkers. This is the dawn of a global community, a family in a higher sense, united in the spirit and the culture of Love. Are you ready?

We should hate evil acts and stop them, but Love all people.

Stopping those "acts", is pretty important these days.

Completely agree. I agree with equal justice for all and the people I love who commit these, "acts", should go to jail, not just pay a fine out of the profits.

Great. Group fucking hug. Now, about those issues......

Love is our only hope, and all we need is Love. Love is the answer because it is the only thing powerful enough.

Great news story about the man from New York that drove 24 hrs to Oklahoma to help the tornado victims. He had a genuine smile as he described the best thing about being there was the hugs!

Love can compel understanding, understanding can compel love.

Do you love enough to assure conditions enabling understanding are always present?

Love & understanding. Humans have the needed intelligence to understand the life that love compels them to protect.

We shouldn't protest and show rage towards the 1%? We should instead shower them with love? Should we have love sittings, like the hippies?

Demand ART5 while hugging the 1%. Because if we get a convention, they will be terrified.

Even tho I really enjoy reading the different signs at a protest, I have pics of many of them, I would love to participate in a march where 10,000 or more people had the same sign; LOVE!

What a sight that would be. Would anyone be arrested?
