This morning, I posted a question on Facebook: do you believe in Unconditional Love?
Here are my initial thoughts on the topic:
We are staying at a friend’s home for one month with no strings attached. This, to me, is an example of Unconditional Love. He wants no money or work in return. In his eyes and his behavior, I see an inspiration for me that fills me with hope. It’s something I long to model more and more in the time I have left on this earth.
There is no transaction here, no quid pro quo. If my friend gains some self-love from this act (very cool), that’s outside of our relationship.
Yesterday, two friends opened their home to us, took us on a tour and we hardly know them. Again, no transaction. Just love.
As I move through some difficult changes, many people on FB have been showing me what Unconditional Love looks like, too. And now that I think of it, so many friends helped me to make my CD or buy us a meal or provided us with some service or thing with no strings attached.
Perhaps we need to learn how to see it and receive it in order to give it.
As my friend, Keith T., said, “It’s what the world needs now. Seriously.”
