The love of life is paramount, as time ticks quickly. Our lives are in a constant state of distraction with social media, government ills and the troubling future, but it is the love of life that will be our counter, our guiding post and safe harbor.
“The situation of mankind today is too serious to permit us to listen to the demagogues — least of all demagogues who are attracted to destruction — or even to the leaders who use only their brains and whose hearts have hardened. Critical and radical thought will only bear fruit when it is blended with the most precious quality man is endowed with — the love of life.” Erich Fromm
This may be an exercise in simplification, a necessary paring down to inherent essentials of emotion and time: how we live and how we feel about our living. The facilitation of better living and the love of life is an intentional action of thinking and doing, the frontal cortex speaking to the open hand. It is this intention that opens up experience, inspiring the individual and in turn, the collective: an outward vibration, both in energy and act of kindness.
To love life, no matter the obstacle is not the easiest of tasks but one that can heal the deepest of wounds, soften the blows and inspire the resiliency required to navigate forward. This is where we are in time, an era of the resilient. A time for simplicity and clarity, acts of resolve and the inherent love of life.
