Unconditional Love

Unconditional Love is loving without strings.

Unconditional Love is a state of grace, of total peace and contentment. It makes you feel complete and is a suspended light feeling. When you allow yourself to feel love, you can almost feel it floating around you.

In it's truest form

Unconditional love, is love in it's truest form. Completely innocent, pure and a state of grace. It is for sure a person orientated love, but with a pure acceptance of that person as they are, with no need to hold on to them yet with a complete happiness to be with them.

You love, simply because you can. Not because you NEED to love, but because you CAN. It's a total acceptance of another person as they are. You of course, support, help and advise when possible, but you allow that person to make their own life choices, you allow that person to make up their own minds.

It has been posed that you can't be in an unconditional relationship with another person. It is possible but first, you must seek an unconditional relationship with yourself.

You place conditions on your loved ones, because they fulfil needs in you, we have expectations of them, we have standards we like them to meet, we have unwritten rules for behaviour. All of these things are 'conditions' or 'strings'.

We expect our loved ones to act in a certain way, when we should be simply loving them FOR the way that they are.

Below are two items, the first is a poem which to me embodies all aspects of love in its purest form. The second is a truly inspiring text to refocus and remind oneself what unconditional  love is all about.

"Unconditional Love"by Meilena Hauslendale

When we love someone in its truest of form,
it is a pure love, a love with no conditions.
Love out of purity can develop over time
or be instantaneous in some situations.

When we love or care for someone unconditionally
it is because we want to,
not because we feel we have to.
We don't love that person
because of what they do for us.

We don't love them
because we want something that they have.
We love them
because we have a special place
reserved in our hearts and in our spirits
specifically for them.

This love is unshaken
because it is based on truth
not on convenience.

It doesn't even matter
if our love is reciprocated by the person we care for.
It doesn't matter
if they turn their backs and walk away.
It doesn't matter
if they choose to say nothing at all,
because the love you have for them exists
regardless of the circumstance
and regardless of the condition.

It is simply based
on your strong sense of care
for this individual.

It is not based on power.
It is not based ...
It is based
on love's purest intentions.

When we love someone unconditionally,
we love them as they are,
as they were,
and as they intend to be.

We embrace their past,
their present,
and their future
as a fine intricate detail of who they are.

When they speak,
we listen to them.
When they are still,
we stand by their sides.
When they need to be left alone,
we leave them be,
but we continue to love them even when separated by distance.

Unconditional love
goes beyond just the emotions of love,
it develops in the core of our being
as it is there where we hold
those close to us so dearly.

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE - by Sandy Stevenson

Love without condition

I love you as you are, as you seek to find your own special way to relate to the world. I honour your choices to learn in the way you feel is right for you.

I know it is important that you are the person you want to be and not someone that I or others think you 'should' be. I realise that I cannot know what is best for you, although perhaps sometimes I think I do. I have not been where you have been, viewing life from the angle you have. I do not know what you have chosen to learn, how you have chosen to learn it, with whom or in what time period. I have not walked life looking through your eyes, so how can I know what you need.

I allow you to be in the world without a thought or word of judgement from me about the deeds you undertake. I see no error in the things you say and do. In this place where I am, I see that there are many ways to perceive and experience the different facets of our world. I allow without reservation the choices you make in each moment. I make no judgement of this, for if I would deny your right to your evolution, then I would deny that right for myself and all others.

To those who would choose a way I cannot walk, whilst I may not choose to add my power and my energy to this way, I will never deny you the gift of love that God has bestowed within me, for all creation. As I love you, so I shall be loved. As I sow, so shall I reap.

I allow you the universal right of free will to walk your own path, creating steps or to sit awhile if that is what is right for you. I will make no judgement that these steps are large or small, nor light or heavy or that they lead up or down, for this is just my viewpoint. I may see you do nothing and judge it to be unworthy and yet it may be that you bring great healing as you stand blessed by the Light of God. I cannot always see the higher picture of Divine order.

For it is the inalienable right of all life to choose their own evolution and with great love I acknowledge your right to determine your future. In humility I bow to the realisation that the way I see as best for me does not have to mean it is also right for you. I know that you are led as I am, following the inner excitement to know your own path.

I know that the many races, religions, customs, nationalities and beliefs within our world, bring us great richness and allow us the benefit and teachings of such diverseness. I know we each learn in our own unique way in order to bring that love and wisdom back to the whole. I know that if there were only one way to do something, there would need only be one person.

I will not only love you if you behave in a way I think you should or believe in those things I believe in. I understand you are truly my brother and my sister, though you may have been born in a different place and believe in another God than I.

The love I feel is for all of God's world. I know that every living thing is a part of God and I feel a love deep within for every person, animal, tree and flower, every bird, insect, river and ocean and for all the creatures in all the world.

I live my life in loving service, being the best me I can, becoming wiser in the perfection of Divine truth, becoming happier in the joy of

Unconditional Love
