The True Meaning of Unconditional Love

Do You Hate to Love Valentine's Day?

Do You Practice Unconditional Love?

As we grow in age and experience, we begin to realize that love is not conditional. Yet, we search for unconditional love, and place conditions on that search! With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I want you to think about love and gift-giving. Will you judge your partner by the gift they give you? Will you be jealous if someone you know gets something “better”? If you will, you need to learn about unconditional love!

Admit to Being Conditional

Oso shared the following about love: “How can love impose ideals on anyone? Love simply accepts you as you are; there is no need to be somebody else. I call a place a holy one where love is unconditional, shared without asking anything in return—not even in a subtle way.” If we not only read this quote but also reflect on it, we can perhaps find the ways in which we have or currently imposed ideals on our lover, our family members, or our friends. This takes some effort! For who among us wants to admit they don’t practice unconditional love?

Societal conditioning, mass media and projected ideals have been cast upon us all at some point in our lives. Commercials tell us that the larger the price tag, the larger the love. They send us messages, both directly and subliminally, that the number of gifts given is akin to the amount of love one feels for the other.

Something Outside of Us

When we buy into this idea (pun intended!) we give over our power and even our minds to some idea outside of us. In doing so we miss out on so many wonderful moments of unconditional love. So many opportunities to “be” love. In the Christian bible (1 Corinthians 13:4 – 5) is the following passage, “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.”

Be Love 

I believe that the writer is inferring that when you are “being love” you see no wrong. Unconditional love never fails. How can it? It is true love! We humans can use the word love to hold onto something or someone—sometimes even well past the time when it is appropriate to move on to our next learning adventure, but that’s not true, unconditional love. Therefore I postulate that unconditional love, is not a feeling. Instead, it is an action and a state of being. Will you join me in testing this hypothesis?

What Would Unconditional Love Do?

Here is how to begin. Whenever you feel offended or afraid, ask yourself this question: What would unconditional LOVE do? I believe (and have seen proof in my own life) that you will find yourself making different decisions, having different reactions and taking different action. In doing so, you will find more unconditional love not outside of you, but emanating from you. With that comes a greater sense of peace, tolerance and an ability to overcome any obstacles or obstructions in your life.

Choose Unconditional LOVE.

    Sue, having suffered a great loss in my life recently in an tragic manner, I reflect on the song by Garth Brooks, “The Dance.” “I could have missed the pain, but I’d have had to miss the dance.” Yes, when you love, it hurts sometimes, even in the best of situations. But Christian love is different than “unconditional love.” Your anger at God, Christians and Christianity is evident, and you are entitled, I’m not preaching. But, unconditional love is what YOU feel, not what someone else feels for YOU. Christian love is simply being the best you can be and helping, and loving, those around you. I offer prayers for you and hope that you again find the unconditional love you desire. Personally, I had it, and it remains with me, despite the immense void in my life.

    Hi Sue
    I understand your sentiments. I don’t believe that this is an attitude that is merely “Christian”.
    It is not unconditional love that hurts us
    If we love from being in the place of love itself, as a state of being, not as an emotion that is then attached to an expectation or is moved or changed by our fear. This is not a call to be a doormat nor to withhold love – it is in fact merely a challenge to look at how our own fears, expectations, and projections can bring on stories that we tell ourselves that may not even be based in fact, instead merely creations of our own mind, and our old tapes .
    For love, in is essence is not about keeping someone – it is not about guarantees – it is only about Love.
    Love as an action, a decision, a way of moving through the world
    not as something to possess or to possessed
    Our hurt does come from our attachment to a specific idea or ideal or desired outcome.
    Love brings us our greatest challenges to become more alive and even more complete within ourselves. As Kahlil Gibran once wrote:
    “Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.
    Love possesses not nor would it be possessed;
    For love is sufficient unto love.”
    I wish you peace and many blessings

    Been there, done that. However, unconditional love can often leave you hurting terribly. Sure, you can cut that person off (which is very difficult and painful), and move on. Or, you can simply forgive and stay. But it is alsways the one who loves also the one who is hurt and devastated. This “Christian” attitude sometimes makes me sick.
