So if you read my previous entry about my Twinflame then you can understand where this fits in. He is not the only one I have feel unconditional love for, but he is the one who with all my experiences with him (good, bad and indifferent) has taught me the most about loving someone unconditionally. Anyway, onto today's snippet...I started the Spread Love Campaign July 2011 to help make it a global movement to spread love with chalk because it is fun, easy and really assists with intention. However, I have since decided I want to make it more than just chalk expressions of love---(I still welcome pictures of chalk love) I want it to be a place where people can share how they are spreading love to the world and they can do it by simply posting pictures, thoughts or words on my page. So this long story is because this morning I started to write a message on my Spread Love Campaign Page, but it is something that needs to be shared. So here is the message I posted:
"The only way to truly love is
unconditionally. It is the most difficult truth to digest because we are in a
society where it has been so ingrained in conditions for love. Try today to
show someone pure, divine unconditional love and see what happens."
It is not that difficult to love someone that
is easy to love like a partner or a child, but what happens when they hurt
you? Or someone mistreats you? Is it possible to simply love a
soul? Is it possible to simply love them when they do things that you
don't like, that you disapprove of? Is it possible to love someone who has
hurt your heart?
I remember when I was younger, I was often
afraid to tell people how I felt so if I did I wouldn't talk to them again
because I was embarrassed or thought they wouldn't like me any longer.
The reality was that I barely told people what I felt because I didn't want to
It is years later and I can look back upon my
life and see how much fear I lived in when I was younger. I was afraid someone would really see me with
all the bumps and bruises of being a human upon the planet earth. The truth is
we all go through the same things we just may not appear that way outwardly
some of us are much better at hiding it.
I realize now that in relationships you don't have to worry about all
those things or for some of you who still do—you shouldn’t have to worry about
those things. In a healthy
relationship (whatever the relationship is), you can say what you feel and what
you think while being able to resume normal behavior. It shouldn’t be disruptive to the flow of the
relationship simply because someone wishes to say how they feel. It is a matter of everyone feeling free to be
I find that being able to tell people how you
feel is one step toward unconditional love.
How does that figure in, you ask? Well, if you love them
unconditionally you feel free to say what you need to say and you accept
whatever reaction/response you receive from them. If there reaction is
less than loving, then perhaps it is time to re-evaluate your relationship or
your beliefs about it. If you are not comfortable and are disappointed with
what they have to say or how they reacted that simply shows you that there is something
left for you to still work on. I admit that this is probably one of the hardest
things to handle especially when we have been so clearly entrenched in judgment
in our society; but it always helps me to remember that someone’s reaction is
based on their experiences just as my reaction is based on my experiences.
My wish for you today is that you show unconditional
love to someone today.
