Have you ever wondered why dogs are able to love unconditionally? Why it comes so natural to them? How they are able to quickly put the past behind and live in the present?
They understand their purpose is to love you. They are singularly focused on that. Period. Bad things can happen, but they just keep on loving. Nothing else matters. Their souls are genuinely good.
With the exception of a minority of human souls, I believe people are generally good. A good person who does a bad thing is still a good person. Only the thing they did is bad. And they deserve to be forgiven, whether they ask for it or not.
Without over analyzing this statement, do you agree?
If “no”, then you can’t possibly understand what unconditional love is.
If “yes”, then you have the foundation to feel unconditional love.
Unconditional love flows from your heart. And it’s not necessarily something that the other person feels, however that can happen. Also, don’t think of it as something for their benefit, although it can be.
Unconditional love is for you. It frees you from your own prisons. It releases you to discover your purpose. Being unable to forgive, holding on to the hurt, the resentment, the need to get even, only hurts you, nobody else. It holds you back.
And that’s a real shame. A real waste of love.
You need to understand that you were designed out of love. You were created to love and be loved. You were purposefully sent with a stamp of love on the envelope.
The hurts you’ve experienced, the hangups you have, the bad habits you’ve developed … all bad things … are meant to keep you from realizing your purpose. There are forces working against you, and they can only succeed if you let them.
Don’t let them.
Rather than be bitter when something bad happens to you, or be depressed when you do something bad, forgive the offense and yourself. Learn from it. Commit to not repeat it. Move on with determination to find and achieve your purpose.
Don’t let it derail you.
You need a clear mind for that. It’s what enables you to keep things in perspective and clearly see the road ahead. It’s also what enables unconditional love in your heart.
And when a clear mind and loving heart are in harmony, you have peace, passion and purpose. That’s the mind-heart equilibrium. No matter what happens to you, you’re in control of your response, doing the right thing.
Forgiving. Learning. Loving. Moving on because you know where you’re going and you’re determined to get there. You can be slowed down, but you can’t be stopped.
I genuinely care about you and am grateful you’re reading this. My wish for you is that you will reflect on your ability to unconditionally love yourself and others. If you want help, I can help. I know how hard it is. I’ve been there.
Do it for your benefit, nobody else’s. But do so realizing your selfish motivation to love yourself will indirectly benefit others.
Try it. It’s liberating.
You’ll love it. Unconditionally.
