The Crazy Story of How I Developed Universal Love For All Of Humanity.
(and how you can do the same)

Before I share my thoughts on this topic I would like to give you a little bit of background that you probably don’t know.  I had an experience around in December of 2012 that changed the person that I was at the time, and drastically shifted my beliefs around what is possible in the area of love, truth, and really reality as a whole.  It allowed me to achieve what I know so many are quick to claim is impossible…  an unconditional love toward all of humanity.

What happened?

I didn’t share this because I didn’t really believe people would believe me at the time.  I was an athiest science oriented individual, who regarded scientific theory with the adoration that a Christian has for Christ.  The day after the event, I had to re-evaluate my entire belief system to that point.

I was engulfed in a white light during meditation one day after learning a new physics concept.  The basic idea was energy and matter being interchangable.  What we refer to as material matter exists, in theory, due to a duality of forces.  It had been that duality that I was meditating on.

Keeping in mind when that thoughts are things, and their ability to influence the physical world around us at least at a quantum level, I visualized my shoulder that was injured with these twin forces vibrating through it.  I went into probably my deepest meditation until that point, and began to hear a high pitched tone inside my head.  The next thing you know, my entire body was being engulfed by a pulsating white light.

The feeling was like that of being swept down a raging river.  Helpless, I just had to go with the experience.  Each pulse was like getting swept off of my feet again, and my counsciousness diving deeper into the depths of my being.  All fear, pain, belief, memory, and time seemed to drift away at this place of infinite good.

Then just like that it was over, and I felt exhausted.  I kind of shook my head in a “What was that?” sort of fashion.  I was ready to go to bed, but when I laid down the exact opposite happened to me.  

I had laid down on my left side, when suddenly I was engulfed in a blackness that I am unable to describe with words.  I was paralyzed with fear, and something (seemingly) physical was driving its claws into my right ribcage, like it was pulling its-self up so it could bark its intangible language in my right ear.  It sounded like its voice was manufactured through a voicebox made of grinding metal.  It is impossible to describe the sound with a fine degree of accuracy, but the best I can do is to say it sounded gallactic.  It is a sound that couldn’t be made by any animal on earth, but it was unmistakenly a voice and a language.

It felt as if this voice was uploading some sort of knowledge into my mind.  What it was, I had no idea.  The fear I felt was to the degree that I wished for death though…  Then just like that, it was over.

I shot up in my bed and looked over where the demon monster (or whatever) had been and there was nothing.  I was in my room alone.  I was afraid I was losing my mind.

Sounds Fantastical Right?

I know you may be questioning whether what I experienced as a temporary bought of insanity…  That was my first thought as well.  You have to remember, that I didn’t believe that anything of a spiritual nature existed…  So losing my mind was the only explaination that I could possibly come up with based on my belief system at the time.

The next morning though, I was forced to review that position.  I said forced, because of two different factors:

1.  I was changed.  I don’t know how to explain it, and it shouldn’t have even been possible the amount of change that came into my character overnight.  Neuroplasticity and habits should have made this impossible, but I was suddenly free from all my negativity, dishonesty, and fear…  I not only had un unwavering peace about me, but I absolutely loved each and every person that I came into contact with.  I was suddenly able to speak powerful principles about life that I had never learned, and usually aren’t taught outside of spiriual texts.  I know that this point is very subjective, and doesn’t proove anything to anyone other than myself though so let me mention the second factor.

2.  My mind changing could be the result of some sort of mental condition, but the way other people around me began to respond was what really convinced me that I hadn’t lost it…  No, the truth was I think I had finally found it.  Like a new kid with a toy, the ability to meditate and manipulate my reality was all I wanted to do.  When I would meditate, people would see and hear me in the next room, or outside.  After one of my meditation, I could feel the power still radiating off of me when a girl bowed down in front of me placing her forehead at my feet.  

I would have large groups of people surround me and ask to hear me speak of the truth around my neighborhood.  I remember there was a mentally handicapped man I had known for months.  He who wasn’t able to complete sentances without studdering in anxiety.  I spoke to him about this sense of infinite love toward all life, and turning our backs on darkness when he suddenly started speaking in complete sentences, with no sign of mental retardation for the next day.

I could tell 100 small stories of similar occurances…  I would know things before they happened, hear people’s thoughts, and know if someone were lieing or being honest.  It seemed like I could hear the truth…  While at the same time being blind to almost everything else.  Everyone and everything looked beautiful and perfect, and I saw the good in everything I wittnessed.  This was true in people, events, and places.  It all was falling into a divine order, that for some reason I seemed to be privvy to.

Do You Believe Me?

When people tell me I should broadcast this story, I have always felt as if I would some day.  I wrote a short essay about it called, “Walking In Truth” back in 2015-2016 but never widely publicised it because I know how unbelievable it may sound to some of you.

But the rest of this article will come from the premise that you DO believe that something of a spiritual nature occured to me back in December of 2012.  If you are skepticle, keep reading anyway… Perhaps I can change your mind.

In case you are wondering how long this condition of what I term Christ consciousness lasted, the answer is a couple of weeks for the spiritual stuff, like the knowing people’s thoughts, and seeing things before they happened…  The fundamental truths I was able to mine out of what I can only refer to as universal intelligence still are with me today.

What Were My Key Lessons From The Experience?

This isn’t something that can happen to you and you shrug it off and are the same person afterwards.  I have never been anywhere near the person I was before that spiritual experience.  These are the 5 beliefs that I aquired that allowed me to even to this day, love all people.

1.  There is a God, a source, a universal mind.  It spoke through me and healed people, and still gives me the power to help and influence people to be better human beings.

2.  I believe in keeping the relationsip with God 1-on-1.  Instead of worrying about all of the complexities of being a good Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Jew, etc. Focus more of your energy on being more Christ-like, Muhammad-like, or Buddah-like.  

I take the position that our spiritual strengths are awakened most fully when we have in essense created our own religion.  What I mean by that is through discovering our own way of connecting with God based on what feels right to us.  While I think that religion can be a powerful tool in people’s lives, I don’t see it as neccessary for connecting to God.  After all, I connected to God more powerfully than most, and I had been an athiest until that point.  

3.  The power of faith is real.  Before I had attributed this phenomenon to quantum forces, and perhaps faith and quantum forces are two words for the same thing.  I have realized this to be especially true when I began to desire more success in my life.  Every single thing that I have ever achieved has originated as a thought in my mind, and brought to reality by my faith that it was possible, and action based on that belief.

4.  Every living thing is in its essense, good.  I realized that there are no “bad” in the world.  There are just people believing things, and taking actions based upon their beliefs.  Even the most heinous of individuals in history absolutely believed in what the attrocities that they were committing, and thought they were a good thing.  That is why I no longer believe in bad or evil people… I know believe that people like that are merely confused.  They have at some point lost their way, and fell into a severe state of delusion, or confusion.

So how is that different from these individuals being evil?  I don’t think they are evil because they believe the actions they are taking are good in some way or another, otherwise they wouldn’t take the actions.  Hitler believed he was God’s work afterall bringing Germany to what he believed was it’s rightful supremacy throughout Europe.  Had Hitler studied different material, or grown up in a different situation, perhaps he would have seen that all human beings, regardless of race are valuable and equal.  How much would have changed had he not been confused on that point?

There is a principle in physics that we use in our air conditioning technology.  The truth is that there is no such thing as cold air…  There is only the degree to which something is heated.  Heat is the only thing that really exists…  When we percieve cold, it isn’t cold we are feeling, it is a lack of heat.  Air conditioners work by extracting heat out of the air, and blowing the heatless (cold) air back in the room.  

I believe that goodness is a smiliar force in the way that it works in the spiritual world as heat works in the physical world.  I’m not convinced that there is true evil, just a lack of good.

5.  Everyone is waiting to love and connect with you.  They are just waiting for you to come and love and become friends with them.  I teach this principle to people who want to expand their ability to connect with others.  This is probably one of the more practical lessons I learned through it all.  My ability to interact, and build strong connections with people over the course of a conversation is now one of my greatest strengths that I posess.  The way that I typically phrase it though is,  

“everyone is already my friend, they are just waiting for me to say hello.”  

I come into every conversation with the attitude that this person is already a dear and close friend to me.  Try this one out for yourself…  You will be amazed.

So how do I obtain infinite love for all of humanity?

Honestly, I take it beyond humanity.  I love all of life, from te grass that grows on the ground, to the trees, to the elephants, the birds, the bees, and yes…  Humanity.  

I see a world of balance, and equitable relationships formed out of a natural orbit around love in most of the natural world.  Even the lion eating the wildabeast.  Even the businessman who sets out an advertising scheme to beat his competition.  It is love for me to surround myself with the people who will help me to achieve my greatest value.  There is a perfection in all of it when your mind is properly tuned to identify it.

The act of loving all of humanity is something that you experience.  It is a path that you walk on, not a destination.  It is achieved by having certain general beliefs about people and events.  The 5 beliefs that I mentioned before are really the answer.  When you implement those beliefs, and begin to live your life in that fashion…  You will notice your feelings and emotions toward everything shift.  Your demeanor will shift, even your intelligence will sharpen.  It is probably the most profound experience anyone can go through in life because of the lasting and lifechanging nature of it.

Closing Thoughts…

Remember that the greatest acievements in life are never on top of any mountain… They are the climb up the mountain.  Find perfection in the moment that you are living right now.  Find something to be grateful for, and you will be astounded at the way the universe begins to deliver more things for you to be grateful about.

That is one of the strengths that I will give religion credit for.  Structured gratitude, and controlling focus towards positive outcomes for humanity.  If religion helps you, then good.  I follow lots of them.  I just never let any of them bundle me inside what I call the “Guilt trap”.  If you are familiar with religion, you will know what I am talking about.

For example, if I were to call myself a Christian, and then have a conversation with a person who identifies as a Muslim…  How connected at a heart to heart level do you think that I will have with that person?

That is why I now just follow what you could call the religion of Truth.

It allows me to respect all opinions and beliefs of others, and adopt what works from everywhere.  I don’t have any prejudices.  I truely believe that goodness can be found anywhere when you remember that everyone is simply acting in a way that they believe will create the most good.
