Drawing the Line on Unconditional Love
In my lifetime, I have never witnessed enduring unconditional love from another human being. I do not believe it is physically possible. I think that once we have reached that position of being able to give it, we have passed over to join with the one that is unconditional love. I believe that this state is only experienced spiritually.
It is our inborn desire to move to a place of unconditional love and that is what we strive to do, once we reach a measure of enlightenment that facilitates this kind of growth. As human beings, we attach conditions to our love (emotion). I will love you as long as you fit into a set of parameters that I can accept, and live with. Once you have crossed over the line, I can no longer love you. For humans, this is a matter of ownership. Love is not abstract, but something that is real and physical. It is a feeling that we own and can access.
Universal love (Gods love) is abstract and impartial. It is not felt, but acknowledged. The creator acknowledges the love of humanity, by granting unconditional love (freedom) to him.
Humanity is free to screw up his whole life, come back in another lifetime and screw it up again and again until he no longer wishes to experience screwing it up and wants to move on. Can there be a greater example of unconditional love? Re-incarnation is the ultimate expression of unconditional love and helps us with the screwing up process. Every lifetime is a screw-up until we get it perfect, then it is a perfect screw-up.
There is no reason, save the one you give to your life for being perfect. You are just trying to get there. You do not have to be there. You can take as long as you want to reach that plateau.
This may seem strange coming from a spiritualist, but I believe it is my way of demonstrating unconditional love. We all take our lives away too seriously. We need to chill out. There isn’t any advantage to being able to stand back from our lives as the silent observer and judge ourselves without condemnation about who, what and where we are. All of us are perfect the way we are. Each of us is in the exact place of time and space that is appropriate for us. We do not need anyone’s permission to be so. Because we are creating the circumstances and events of our lives, we can do as we please. Any punishment or retribution that we experience will come from others in our lives that we have drawn into it, and it will, because we have chosen to bring them into our lives.
The more aware we are of this fact, the more freedom we will have to experience it. Any other thoughts we may have about the process will determine how successful we are at it.
Once again, the greatest love of all is freedom to live our lives as we CHOOSE with the guaranty that we can do it over and over again until we know longer choose to.
"Facts and figures never stand a chance in collision with human nature and man's instinct to see things in his own best light." (Tate Montague)
Man does not have the ability to grant unconditional love to another, because in fact he cannot give it away, until he grants it to himself first.
