Every human is destined to face challenges and struggles. Right from birth to his death, he battles for survival, battles to acquire, battles to keep and protect his acquisition, and at the point of death, leaves behind all, if any, that he has acquired. Even at that point, there is the fear of what lays ahead!
The book stresses that lack of love is the root of all human tragedies: personal, familial, communal, national, international and global – coming as sicknesses, epidemics, hatred, wars, natural disasters, fear of death, facing life as vanity and eternal tragedies.
The question deep in man’s heart – consciously asked or not – is that of meaning: What is the essence of his life? Is the whole essence of his living anything more than vanity?
This book is an attempt to respond to this question – that in the midst of the apparent vanity, there is hope – a hope made possible in the right understanding of the future, and the future the individual now has the option to choose: self-love. The book espouses that self-love is our inheritance from God who has created us in His own image; and that self-love, love of God and love of neighbours, all collapse into one and the same thing. Therefore, to redress the tragedies of man, get the best of the world that God has created for us and secure eternity of bliss, we need to turn to self-love as the ultimate solution.
