The Natural Attitude of Love

Question from the Internet:

“What are the basic attitudes that improve the world?”

Humanity is an integral part of Nature.

Nature is a finely balanced and mutually integrated system, where each and every element selflessly and unconditionally serves the whole, placing the interest of the whole above individual interest.

This totally selfless and unconditional service of anything and everything “outside of self-interest” is called “true or natural” love. We can observe this “true or natural” love in actions within our own biological bodies. If the cells and the organs of our body did not serve all the other cells and organs and the whole integral system devotedly, beyond any individual or selfish interest, we would not exist even for a second.

Humanity is an integral part of Nature.

Thus, all of Nature’s laws, principles and operations apply to humanity and everyone.

So the only attitude that can improve the world is “true or natural” love. We can solve our mounting global problems and safeguard our continuing and collective Human survival only when we establish positive, constructive, sustainable, mutually responsible, and mutually complementing interconnections and cooperation — just like the cells and organs of our biological body.

There is nothing we can do about this or against this. This has nothing to do with our arbitrary and misguided ideologies, philosophies, and religions. This above principle is defined by Nature’s strict and unforgiving laws that govern the general balance and homeostasis without which life is impossible.

Humanity is an integral part of Nature.

Thus our existence depends on learning how to love and cooperate like Nature.
