Today’s society is embedded in a constantly turning cycle of conflicts and dilemmas, which involve violence, hatred, bigotry, poverty, and environmental degradation, to mention a few. This unfortunate state of affairs can be traced back to reductionist thinking, predominantly found in neoclassical economic theory, modern scientific methods, and an excessive emphasis on rational thinking and logic.

Even though there has been extensive progress in fields of science, technology, and economy, the current governing theories and methods fail to provide the necessary precautions against the harmful ramifications. These methods, being at best incomplete or even ill-fated, necessitate the retrieval of insight from enduring wisdom, such as spiritual principles and ancient religions.

Countless wisdom traditions and religions contain spiritual principles cautioned against causing harm and violence. One such principle is “Ahimsa,” a doctrine deeply ingrained in Jain, Buddhist, Hindu, and Yogic traditions, which upholds the sanctity of all life forms and promotes the avoidance of harm.

Just imagine for a moment if such a principle were central to our governing structures, be it in nations, societies, communities, institutions, or businesses. Many prevalent problems of humanity could be organically resolved if Ahimsa were valued on a par, or even higher, than GDP, profits, power, or political and economic pursuits.

Countries would focus on settling disputes peaceably, harmful or violent products and services would be compelled to phase out, and human activities would aspire to eco-friendly undertakings. In light of the noted scientific assessment that we are in the beginning of Earth’s 6th great extinction event, with the biosphere at risk of collapsing within this century, this shouldn’t be perceived as a utopian ideal but as an existential necessity.

The prevailing theories and methods lack room for principles such as Ahimsa, since there is no perceived value within. Nevertheless, it could indeed be that spiritual principles such as these would prevent the extinction of humanity and steer towards a sustainable avenue. A timely adaptation of the wisdom from ancient traditions presents itself as a potential way out, eventually leading humanity to revere the intelligence contained in life itself.

The Love + Truth spiritual manifesto encapsulates this small yet powerful observation that we’re in a race to raise human consciousness. The application of ancient spiritual wisdom into modern world issues entails respecting the sanctity of life forms, promoting peace, and instilling principles of non-violence. By doing so, the brand believes in sustaining harmony, unity, and peaceful co-existence.

In a world where governments and enterprises perpetually chase power and profits, Love + Truth paints a picture of societies valuing Ahimsa, peace, and the welfare of all living organisms higher than any materialistic pursuits. Such a world would be steps ahead, with fewer clashes, reduced hatred, and even eased environmental distress, marking a drastic shift from the current state of affairs.

As dictated by the Love + Truth spiritual manifesto, we are indeed part of the race to elevate human consciousness. The only way forward is to sincerely introspect, learn from our rooted wisdom, and apply such principles to navigate the maze of the real world.

By doing so, we don’t just survive; we live in harmony with the environment, in peace with each other, and find joy in the prosperity of all living creatures. To ensure the continued existence of humanity, it is vital to resonate these principles within all our actions, ensuring a tangible positive change.

The book Love+Truth is available on Amazon and all major booksellers.
