If we understand that the most important aspect of our lives is to be with people who understand, help, love and appreciate us, then we need to cherish such an attitude as much as possible.
By doing so, we sacrifice our “I” that always demands to suit itself, and we enter into an approach of wanting to learn how to love others. If the ones we try to love also have the same goal, then we can unlock a truly remarkable mutual feeling.
The approach of learning to love should radiate over everything we do, and it needs to be nurtured. However, unfortunately, such education does not exist in society at large. Moreover, when we age and understand such a need, we no longer have the strength to realize it. That is why it is impossible to convey such an approach to the younger generation. They disregard us, and although we might try, we cannot get closer to them.
Nevertheless, it is necessary to permeate the learning of how to love as much as possible into literature, schools, the media, entertainment—that society becomes saturated with connection-enriching learning. It will then become possible to achieve love for one another.
