Only through “true love” can we conquer the world!

Question from the Internet:

“My only goal in life is to conquer the world. How do I go about this? I’m still a teenager so I should have plenty of time to compose a plan.”

There is only one force and weapon that can help you conquer the world, a force and weapon nobody can resist: love.

But I am not talking about the “love” we usually dream, sing and write poems about or what we seemingly feel for our parents, partners and children. The “usual love” is just another form of instinctive “self-love” that drives and motivates us in everything we ever do.

We “love” someone or something when we receive pleasure or some sort of reward or remuneration from “loving”. We can see how this “love” turns sour and destructive even in our families.

The “true love” that is irresistible and can penetrate any shield and defeat any other weapon is the “love” Nature uses to create and sustain life. This “love” is characterized by selfless, unconditional care and service of another when the “lover” exists within the desires and needs of the “beloved” existing only to fulfil those desires and needs of the other.

When a person starts to feel such “love” coming from another person, one becomes completely defenceless and obligated to reciprocate such “true love”.

There is no other way of conquering others and the world but through this “true love” we can and have to learn from Nature.
