The purpose of mankind is to discover love. To discover a wholesome and unconditional love. Whether we choose to live a life of love or not is up to us. It isn't supposed to be easy to love selflessly, but ultimately that is how we are tested in this life.

This kind of love embodies every pre-conceived notion of what "good" means. Good meaning wholly desirable. We understand that what's wholly desirable must come at a great cost to us. To seek what is wholly good requires courage, discipline, time, resources, risk, and a great sense of vulnerability. Nobody can love wholly and unconditionally at every moment but we still idealize this as the perfect good and those who choose to live a life of love will emulate this pure love.

Everything that seems to exist arbitrarily actually doesn't. Even seemingly simple things like rocks, desert sands, clouds, and others things of nature were created as expressions of love. We can appreciate even the simplest things in life and part of this 'appreciation' is just an awareness of love that is expressed and reflected by the object.

God is this force of love. All things are interconnected with this force and exist because of this force alone. We weren't meant to know of God by any other means than by choosing a life of love. This life is meant as a test and those who choose to love will find God and be returned with the love they sought after.

I don't think this right because love is always biased and a bit insane. It's brilliant, but it's primative rather than divine in nature. You can see all kinds of animals grouping together and helping each other. That's love, and love of nature probably has to do with our instincts for gathering food and migrating.
