The true spiritual nature of human beings and our connection to our Creator is almost universally based on the elements of Love… the core of all positive religions.
This new science introduces us to all the elements of Love that are crucial to our own spirit, our spirituality with others and our spirituality with God. Love is perfectly symmetrical, and because symmetry is what science is about, this new science lays the first formal foundation for the true integration of science and religion.
“The Technology of Love” brings the highest spirituality down to earth where it can now become, “a refinement of everyday thinking,” from which our everyday living experience can’t be detached.
Quotes from (TOL) “The Technology of Love” Volume 1, (c) 2004 Charles E. Hansen; used with permission.
“Whether of Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism, Christianity or Islam, there is a tenuous commonality of love as the dominant religious application to real living. With Christianity, for example (although historians, archaeologists and other scholars may dispute the exact details), there is little question that the teachings of Jesus constitute an instruction to “Love one another” in daily practice. Indeed love is clearly the most vital religious factor referred to by Jesus in the records available. (TOL, pg. 6)
“The initial element of Respect is Awareness… including mutual awareness [which] may extend well into the simpler life forms such as plants, and quite possibly into the inorganic realm. And Jesus appears to have suggested such a mutual awareness to be present even in the rocks that lined his path on his final journey into Jerusalem.” (TOL, pg. 33)
“A close study of Jesus’ technique in “caring” for people reveals that, with one or two exceptions (of record), he listened first to the person’s expression of need. “What do you seek?” “What would you that I should do unto you?” were apparently his standard approaches.” (TOL, pg. 49)
“Encouraging can take many forms…is frequently verbalized and is actually deeply entrenched among humans… Jesus’ [words] “be of good cheer” is an example. (TOL, pg 50)
“Jesus used the following statement to describe the maximum Care: “No greater love has a man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.” (TOL, pg. 61)
…Jesus suggests that individuals should “Become passers-by,” (Gospel of Thomas) dealing with Care and Love with whomever and whatever is directly encountered and with an intensity appropriate to the situation. Confucius suggests a “sense of proportion” even in Courtesy, the least intense form of Care.” (TOL pg. 63)
“In fact, how one would Care for one’s self is the standard by which others would be Cared for in the “technology of Love.” This, Jesus clearly suggests: “All things whatsoever that you would have others do unto you, do even so unto them,” and, “love your neighbor as yourself.” (TOL, pg 67)
“Thus as Jesus presented the father of the prodigal son explaining to the elder son who has apparent just reason not to forgive and accept his wayward brother back with open arms, “It is fit” to celebrate the offender’s return (celebration is generally a mix of Praising, Encouraging, and Comforting); that is, it is appropriate for the way of Love to not only forgive, but to Love greatly if possible.” (TOL, pg. 101)
“Jesus’ definition of “being perfect” takes Love as far as possible over the lines of our tolerances, dislikes, biases, prejudices and even natural – even reasonable – irritations, annoyances and resentments knowing full well that about ninety-five percent of these natural human determinations are bogus; that is, Love can virtually eliminate or change the condition for the better – sometimes tremendously so. “Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you…” – all this before he gets to those who don’t repay their loans from us, take us to court (and win), and steal our stuff. Clearly irritating to about 100 percent of humanity. In every case, to the extent possible, Jesus advises the same: “resist not evil” but…we should take the vectors of evil, error, and ignorance directed against us and turn them into vectors of Love emanating from us whenever the situation allows.” (TOL pg. 113)
