Save the World
An excerpt from a Paul Solomon talk on audio tape - 'A Time for Love' (side two, ±11m):-
"What's really the most valuable thing, the most important thing? What does this world need right now more than anything else? You want to know? It needs people who can look at one another and say, "You're absolutely beautiful. This world is nicer because you're here. I'm glad I know you." People who can help lift other people and encourage them, make them feel better.
And you know what? You've got that talent!... The most important talent in this world, you've got it, you have that ability. That makes you as beautiful as any being that walked on earth - if you use it... But you know what, that's hard to do, unless you're secure in your love... I mean if I'm afraid of being rejected, I'm going to be afraid of being bold enough to love...
Just make it a project. Begin to notice how much effect you can have on other people if you make it a project to make other people feel better... You can do it. You have that ability. And that ability is what this world needs more than anything else right now. And if we can start an epidemic, we can do something this world needs done."
People who are raised with emotional security, as with attachment parenting, are likely to have the self-love required to become a lover and uplifter to the world. Their bodies and souls have been nourished - in utero, as babies, as children - with the required emotional nutrients that gives them a foundation of self-love.
For others, we have to develop that self-love - see here.
This is why attachment parenting is crucial to saving the world!
after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall
for God the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the
history of the
world, man will have discovered fire."
(Pierre Teilhard de Chardin)
"But there comes a time when you're madly in love with being loving. It doesn't get better than that."

"I love myself." The quietest, simplest, most powerful revolution ever.
