How many times do we use this term…. Our mind has so many ideas and interpretations of what is unconditional love and what it is not. And that is where it already starts… unconditional love is unconditional. Without conditions.
There are no categories of what is unconditional love and what is not. Unconditional love encompasses everything and everyone. Without any conditions. It is not: You did this FOR me, now I love you MORE. Or: You did this TO me, now I love you LESS. Those are conditions of our conditioned mind, thinking it knows love. Unconditional love can be beautiful, amazing, incredibly uplifting, and it can be very painful, messy, it can bring you to your knees, sobbing, screaming, hurting. We are all connected consciously or unconsciously in the field of unconditional love. We all serve each other in this grand game, we all walk each other home.
That does not always look like a perfect honeymoon trip. As much as our ego would love this to be a permanent romantic and harmonic journey, filled with love and light and joy and happiness, a perfect Hollywood love story, unconditional love does not follow the conditions/expectations we put onto it. Unconditional love gives us what we need most for our own liberation, and that is most of the time not what we (our ego) wants or what we believe to be perfect. Unconditional love wants to free you from all restraints and limitations, take you beyond anything you ever thought was possible. It offers you in many ways to see yourself, to see your own power, and to embrace and love and appreciate yourself and all of your creations, every single bit of your experience. It invites you to go deeper, to look within and meet yourself at the purest, most honest level. Stripping away everything where you are blocking yourself from unconditional love.
” It invites you to go deeper, to look within and meet yourself at the purest, most honest level. Stripping away everything where you are blocking yourself from unconditional love.“
The ego idea of love is fear (if this – then that), it wants to keep you safe within all the limitations it believes in. We can be cheerleaders for each other and we can be the mirror of our deepest fear and pain for each other. Acts out of uncondtional love serve our own liberation, our own deconstruction of the prison our linear mind has created that we have believed in for so long. Unconditional love more often than not is tough love, most hurtful and seemingly cruel acts that create huge cognitive dissonance, as our belief system and our story is challenged and triggered. They offer the gift of transformation. Do we lean into it, do we feel what we did not want to feel, do we look at what we did not want to see, do we open our heart and unconditionally accept our experience, or do we shut down, do we judge, blame and shame people and situations instead. Do we act out of love towards ourself or out of ego love (fear) to protect ourselves and our loved ones from pain. It takes a lot of observation, inspection, guts and awareness to see through the illusion of darkness and light, of victim and perpetrator, of good and bad, of right and wrong.
“Unconditional love is beyond all the stories that we keep telling ourselves to justify our experience.”
Unconditional love is beyond all the stories that we keep telling ourselves to justify our experience. Beyond cause and effect. Beyond conditions (expectations, attachments, judgments, opinion, beliefs….) It just is. To access it, and to truly live unconditionally in joy and harmony – all of our conditions show up for transformation. It hurts, it involves lots of anger, tears, frustration and grief. Our owned, unprojected, raw and real emotions are the cleansing tool to transcend everything and collapse everything into one. Our courage to share and express our vulnerability in purity and radical honesty is the key to our prison door and out of our fear loops.
We break the pattern by not reacting according to the learned fear protocol. With each transformed pattern, we feel lighter, after each dark night, we shine even brighter. It is a deep inner process, the outer reality follows our inner state of being. Unconditional love transcends everything, by embracing what is, with a deep inner knowing it always has been and always is all our own creation. So we can be the free, sovereign, empowered being and collective of such beings that we are meant to be.
