  • All what holy scriptures and chronicles seem to hint at; even all what unholy movies and songs seem to also partially claim is that, the realest or the most substantial test in human life is the ability to love everyone. Even where there is anger, hate and nothing to be loved the real spiritual dilemma bestowed upon mankind is to love. To few people that may require no effort, or so is their claim, for love comes naturally from within but to many others the idea proves prohibitive, as many of us remain stuck in the primary challenge of trying to figure out how to love ourselves.

    If you ask me, loving everyone in an uncertain and dubious world, is ofcourse an unimaginable idea; it's hard enough to begin with, for being man and flesh is trouble by itself.

    And nowhere is that more substantially evident, than in the disposition of the human species; our minds operate on paleolithic emotions, our institutions function on a medieval level of awareness and we have built god-like technology capable of releasing the energy the lights the stars.

    Now that is a dangerous mix in which love can grow deficient.

    No it's not easy to love everyone.

    But if spirituality could be turned into a science and if morality was to be understood through a series of mathematical equations, then true enlightenment through the eyes of science, humanism and spirituality becomes simply, the arrival to the belief that:

    No where is love more desperately needed than in the presence of the unloved.

    Those who didn't receive love shall never be able to give it. Loving everyone, therefore, is the realest spiritual and existential experiment to partake in.

    Lets try at least because before we learn how to love one another, we will never be able to understand- as to why-we suffer, bleed and breathe.

    Love everyone.
