The Purpose Of Life: To Love And To Create:
The Meaning Of Life Is Found By Expressing Love Through Creativity
To answer the primal question of why we are here the book does a deep dive into life, love, creativity, tragedy and paradoxes. The author takes readers on a journey invoking quantum theory, great artists, religious leaders, poets, philosophers, and great thinkers.
It seems straightforward that Love is an important element of life, but the book argues that as much as we may think we appreciate and fully understand love there is so much more to it. The more you understand, appreciate and value love the more doors for your life are opened and the more purpose and meaning your life can have.
There are so many dimensions to love that are not well understood nor appreciated. The more you become aware of those different aspects of love the more you can connect with others and improve your life, health and the world.
It is widely thought that the hate is the opposite of love, but the author argues that is not true and that saying that are on the same plane elevates hate and diminishes love. For example, soldiers say they don’t fight out of hate but out of love for their fellow soldiers and their relatives back home.
Indeed, the author argues that love is not an emotion but better understood as a force and energy. To illustrate that point Dale tells the story of his father dying of cancer and how he held on for months till his family had a place to live. For the author it was love in the form of energy and not an emotion that fueled his father in enduring pain and staving off death till he completed what he needed to do for his family.
Indeed, love is so powerful and fundamental that Dale states to save the world Love the Unlovable.
The book also discusses creativity which it describes as a dance with the Universe that is available to us all. We all have the ability to create. Indeed, Dale argues creativity is a need for every human and it blossoms with openness, determination, perseverance and unselfishness.
The book also analyzes tragedies and how to make sense of them. Tragedies in life are inevitable because we all die eventually. Dale argues that tragedies are gut wrenching and hard but they drive the need to love deeper and create more while we are alive.
The mysteries of the world are often encased in paradoxes and when we encounter a paradox in life we are likely on the right path.
Love is an energy and creativity is an energy. When these energies inside us are harnessed magic happens and life has purpose, meaning and fulfillment.
Love and creativity are the key elements to solve the world’s problems and live a fulfilling life.
That symmetry is profound and offers real hope. If you want to make the world a better place and help solve its problems openly share your love and creativity. You can make a significant and real difference and doing so will also enrich your life beyond your wildest dreams.
