Unconditional Love

is known as affection without any limitations, or love without conditions. This term is sometimes associated with other terms such as true altruism or complete love.

But how many of us love this way? Without conditions?

For most, loving your children is without conditions. I know personally, if I had to throw myself in front of a semi to protect one of my boys, I would do it in a second. They also know to throw me in front of one or the M72 when I get too old to look after myself.

Love without conditions. Can you imagine it? I can! I love myself without conditions. I’m quirky, have my faults, am certainly not perfect and yet I have learned to love every little thing about myself.

I had no choice. This is what this journey is about. And I know if you have found my blog, then you are on this journey, too.

I do not share my blog with anyone. I don’t post it on Facebook or tell friends I have one. Okay, maybe one friend knows, but I have known her since high school and she digs all this Universal stuff as much as I do. But aside from her and a few others, there are very few people I let into my inner circle.

And while I have learned to love myself unconditionally, I love others without conditions as well. No matter what they say, what they do or how they may have perceived that they have wronged me on some level or I at one time felt that way about them,  I love them.

This Journey is all about getting to a place of complete surrender. Once you reach this point, loving others without conditions and accepting them for who they are is all you will ever know, be, or show them.

Love without expectations. Love without words. Love of another that transcends all rhyme or reason.

Love for those you once found intolerable because you have reached a state of complete clarity and you finally realize that not loving others is not fully loving and accepting a part of yourself they are merely mirroring back to you begging to be healed.

This is unconditional love.

Is it so hard to love this way? It must be, because so many of us struggle with it. We demand from people, we try and control them, we are co-dependent, we have limitations, expectations and everything in-between, all under the guise of love. This is not love, it’s what we have been conditioned to believe it is.

Real love is the one that makes your heart skip a beat, puts a smile on your face for no apparent reason and gifts you with an inner knowing that no matter what you do, it’s not going anywhere.

Real love is all that matters. And if real love is all that matters, then loving without conditions should be all that matters too.
