Carvajal: When Love is absent

Break Point

FAR from original what I am about to share are simply convictions I managed to acquire after hitting the books on the subject. I write in the hope of arousing interest on the ultimate reality that subsumes life so we could perhaps move forward in 2021 from a positively energizing principle deep within us.

We have always thought matter makes up the universe. This has caused some of us to wonder how matter can acquire consciousness or how spirit can infuse matter with native intelligence, raw instinct for rocks, plants, and animals, reason and consciousness for humans.

Most probable way is for both matter and spirit to come from only one source. Thus, some physicists and scientists are beginning to think of matter and spirit not as opposite realities coming from different sources but as dimensions or emanations of one energy-source.

This is the ultimate reality that is at the end of the most powerful microscope man can focus on matter. It is what causes the universe to exist, infuses it with native intelligence, binds it into one self-sustaining, self-regulating whole, and magnetizes it towards the good.

Physicists and scientists call this ultimate reality some kind of Quantum Energy. Theologians and mystics of great religions call it Love, which remarkably is another name for God. Merging the scientific and religious views together we come up with this: Basic or Ultimate Quantum Energy = Love, the Beginning (Alpha) and Magnetizing End (Omega) of all Creation.

Without Love binding creation and magnetizing it towards the good, all reality disintegrates into nothingness. We are seeing the beginning of this disintegration in the phenomenon of climate change. As most scientists agree and many politicians deny, this is the result of our irresponsible (unloving) exploitation of nature’s resources.

Like our oceans will soon contain more plastics than fish. Like our mindless destruction of Covid-19’s natural habitat has forced it to take up residence in our bodies. Until we learn to respect nature, more deadly viruses will take up residence in and devastate our bodies.

We see this disintegration in world and civil wars that put us one hydrogen bomb away from total annihilation. We see it in the break-up of families, the enslavement of “inferior” ethnic groups, the trafficking of children, etc. Incidentally, drugs do not cause Love to disappear. It is the absence of Love that causes people to self-destruct with drugs.

Call it by any name, religious or scientific, but there is only one single energy source from which all reality, both spirit and matter, emanates. We have to stop ignoring what we see play out daily before us... everybody and everything self-destructing when Love is absent.
