There is no real consciousness without love. Hear me out. Consciousness means the awareness or perception of something. You cannot be aware or perceive a thing if you’re not willing to really look at it consciously. To fully be aware or to perceive something you must care enough to look deeper. That caring is love, and true love allows you to perceive something or someone deeper than its surface or physicality. So, The degree in which you are capable of love is equal to your level of consciousness. When I speak of love I’m not speaking of familial love but the ability to understand because of love. Love allows you to expand your level of consciousness. The conscious ability to love brings about the ultimate level of understanding. This is why “Love” is the 1st commandment or tenet in most religions. Because love doesn’t seek out to do harm. It doesn’t look for people to harm with words or fists. It understands humanity at a cosmic level. Love opens the door to consciousness allowing you to expand and experience life on a higher level. An example of higher level of consciousness through love is seeing the true nature of someone’s character or behavior and being able to see where it is coming from and understanding that it has nothing to do with you. That you need not take on the responsibility of their possible insults, or guilt from their words or their level of fear because fear is the opposite of love. When people are fearful that fear sometimes produces hate or insecurities. But through love and the understanding that everyone you come in contact with represents a version of yourself or what we call God. This is a higher level of consciousness that many people aren’t willing to go due to ego. But, this level however gives you an opportunity to see deeper within them or past their imperfections and neither want to cause them harm vocally, physically, emotionally or mentally. To do so puts you in Ego which makes you believe that you must say something negative about them or back to them if they have said something that could offend you to “show them who you are” or to “put them in their place” or “to let them know who they are messing with” because you don’t want them or anyone who might’ve heard them speak to you in that manner or tone to think that you’re weak. When responding doesn’t make you strong. It places you at their level, vibration and/or frequency. Most times it weakens your aura because it’s like arguing with a two year old, or someone who has mental deficits or lacks mental capacities. Your ability through love is able to understand that they are not fully aware or that they are vibrating on a low frequency and often makes you feel sorry or bad for them because they are in the stage of ignorance. That they lack the mental capacity to do something different or be something different but you don’t egoically feel bad to make them look ignorant. You just know that they are, ignorant.
Ignorance is the denial or inability to gain knowledge or truth. One’s ability to ignore knowledge or truth could be for a myriad of reasons and through love you understand that and that is what brings about a higher level of consciousness because you too understand a time when you might’ve been like them, ignorant and denying truth or knowledge.
