All you need is Love. That’s what John Lennon was singing and he may well be right, all we do need is love.
But do any of us really know what love is? Love is a word that is sung about in songs, written in poems, talked about a lot and it is something many people long for one way or the other, mostly in form of a partner. We hear the word a lot these days: “Be heart-centered” and “Be love”, ““Love is the answer, because love always wins!”, “Send Love and Light!” and so on.
People post it on Facebook as their Religion: Love, and use it casually in conversation in their every day lives. It is seen as the solution to all the world problems. All you need is Love!
If that’s so easy, how come nothing has changed fundamentally on planet earth despite the obvious technological progress?
We still see genocide, oppression and wars happening. Hundreds of thousands of children and civilians have died in the Middle East and around the world because of the war machine under the control of psychopathic leaders who couldn’t care less about anyone who holds up the peace sign with a proclamation of love as the force for change.
Looking at it more closely we can see that “Love” is one of the most abused and misunderstood words.
