I love you SO much, but …
Ever have someone look at you and say, “I love you.” Or, “I love you so much, and I always will.”
I do believe that chances are pretty good most people have had that experience at least once. Some a few times, even.
It’s nice, isn’t it? Makes you feel all warm and gooey inside.
But, and here come that that pesky old but! But should be removed from the vocabulary, it’s like a fly that keeps landing on your dinner plate.
But, what that other person is really saying, 99.9% of the time, and you, my dear reader, may be a smidge tainted with this blame-brush also, is, “I will love you for as long as it suits my view of what love is, and the repays I expect in return keep coming.”
True love, or unconditional love if you will, doesn’t ask, or look, for anything in return. Indeed it is incapable of bartering, demanding or haggling. It does however, by default, receive, in the very instant it gives, the most glorious gift and priceless benefaction anyone can ever receive; the gift of more love.
Those that cannot give unconditionally, on the other hand, are turned back into the cold, to forage and scavenge amongst the meager ego offerings.
Loving truly is sharing unconditionally.
Loving conditionally is embracing greed, it is hoarding favours and emotions which are to be traded at a later date. Loving conditionally is adding layers to the Holy Onion, the Self.
Indeed loving conditionally is a form of self-revulsion; it says clearly, when understood, I am incapable of accepting love for myself and will not allow you to have it either. We can only offer that which we posses. Love gives love, hate gives hate. It is a very simple concept.
Here is how powerful giving love is. The more you love the more the Creator gives you. Now there’s as powerful a statement as you are ever likely to hear.
The Creator, or God if that’s your bag and preference, offers of itself directly, every time you give love to another.
There are only two ways to live life, as things stand. Love or self-revulsion.
The person who lives in self-revulsion is greedy, anxious, often violent, deeply unhappy, aggressive and egotistical.
The person who lives in love is caring, sharing and light hearted.
Whatever you give and do to people, you are giving and doing to yourself.
There is no greater feeling in existence than giving love. Giving is a pleasure, giving is a joy, giving is freedom. Giving is being at one with the One.
Is there heaven on Earth?
When you are giving love, unconditionally, you are experiencing heaven.
