It has been said that true freedom, is the freedom to love. If we are set free, we are set freed into another frame of reference, what I would call
the relativity of human being. I believe that nothing has any meaning, unless communicated, and the meaning of communication is the response you get.
So the fully actualized and self aware human being, is one who communicates with full awareness, their love for others, and since love, to be love,
must also be a love of action, where action is driven by the will, and the will, the mind - to do unto others as we would have them do unto you, as
the "golden rule" is the signal, the transmission, of love communicated, in the recognition that we SHARE the same ground of being and becoming,
together. There is nothing else imho. So to escape the final matrix and framework of love of self and others as self, is to become illogical and
irrational, and to deny something fundamental to our existence as human beings, our compassion. Therefore, if intrinsic to our reality and existence
as human beings, love, as the will to give of self for the sake of another, or to bracket self interest for the sake of the common good of one and
all, is intrinsic to reality itself, a matrix within which I would be only too happy to live, to love and to be loved.
Some would argue that the human being is nothing but a highly complex meaning making machine. I think we are that, sure, but to what end? There is
always something to do, and a final pursuit or an attachment to an outcome of some kind, that is if there is a purpose and a meaning or a value to
life, and so I say that the final standard is love, and that it is by love that we are set free, to love.
I would score high points for what I just said, from a Christian theological perspective, but only within the context of an all-inclusive, and not an
exclusive interpretation of the Christian ethic, as illuminated in the Parable of the Good Samaritan, because the very moment that a condition is
placed upon a loving proposition (communication), the possibility for a fully loving response, is lost. In that sense, I am as opposed to the
exclusive clubhouse of "Churchianity" as anyone..
One other thing which just occured to me - the unhappy matrix of conditioning to which you refer in the OP, all of that, the whole damn thing, arises
from a failure of love within the context of the family of origin. Now, nobody is to be blamed for this, because little Sally as she begins to
make a run for the street and is told, in no uncertain terms "NO, that's BAD" and interprets that communication as "YOU ARE BAD" or "There's
something wrong with you", the fall from grace is inevitable.
So could it be, that there exists as the final framework in the relativity of human being, a perfect model of familial love, at ALL levels? As a
Christian, I believe that there is, and that it's formative, or generative of a better world, if only it could be rightly interpreted and
re-communicated, in an unconditionally loving way.
