“Self-love is a defining achievement of the Human Species and not a detached attribute of the individual. If any portion of the Human Species is in contradiction to love, each individual will be proportionally deficient of self-love. This is due to the inter-connectedness of the Human Species. Specifically, the engagement of hate, violence, subjugation, or bias, i.e. any negative forms of influence, by an individual (or group of individuals) creates a “void” or feeling of emptiness within the structure of the Human Species. The sensation of emptiness cannot simply apply to the collective, but is equally distributed within and felt by every Human Being. The expanse, depth, and intensity of the “void” precisely correlates to the percentage of the Human Species participating in the negative forms of influence. This “void” is the place where unconditional love is impossible.
Self-love is a convergent power that absorbs the individual and not vice versa. When the Human Species actualizes the cumulative capacity for self-love, the force called “Humanity” will awaken.”
