Unconditional Love is Always and Never Personal

Spirit tells me that unconditional love
is always and never personal.

Does that mean that to love anyone
unconditionally …

Yes. You must, at the same time,
be required to love everyone
and everything in the same, or
rather, to that same degree.

Wouldn’t it all become blah?

Blah?

Yes, as in nothing special.

Unconditional love is a very special
quality of love.

Would you want me to relate to you
in such a way?

Not at this time.

Why wouldn’t unconditional Love
be appropriate at all times?

It would not be either possible
or appropriate.

Please explain.

What? Unconditional love?

No. I think I understand what
that means.

What is your understanding of
the meaning of unconditional love?

Unconditional love is to love
without conditions required
to receive my love.

Required by whom or what?

How can it go beyond people?

How can that be a condition?

Then our environment is
and must be included in
my unconditional love?

Yes.

Then, the fallen petals or leaves
must be as loved as when
they were …

No. Unconditional loves does not
have a past or future.

It is always in the present?

Yes, an inclusive present.

How can the present include
past and future?

There are no boundaries of time
and place for unconditional love.

Then, unconditional love is always
or never?

Yes.

But, what if I have developed, and
even now am developing, a deeper
sense of the meaning of
unconditional love?

That is as it should be.

But, I didn’t always understand …

Unconditional love does not depend
upon your understanding.

It just is?

Yes.

Note: Dear Readers, This discussion with Spirit
only seems to skim the surface of the topic
of unconditional love, and yet I could feel
myself stepping into intellectual and emotional
waters over my head, for now. If any of you
have thoughts or questions I could present to Spirit
on the subject, then please help me.

Past and Future Merge in the Present

Spirit tells me that the past and future story of our lives

Merge in the present reality of now. What was is no more.

What will be is not yet.

 

Memories are stories that we tell ourselves, and some others,

In order to explain and, or make sense of the life we have lived.

But, we cannot seem to understand that the life we will yet live

Will be the future of the life that we have already lived. It will

Not be disconnected in any real way from the life we now live.

 

How differently can we expect to live from those elderly people

We now see around us? How differently can our children

Expect to live from the way we live, now, when they are as

We now are? Or, do we believe that we will be in ten years’

Time, as we now are?

 

All the way through life we have had to develop

The ability to adapt to changing circumstances, and to

A changing identity. We were an infant once, and

Then a child. After that we developed, one step at a

Time into the persona we now are. How could we

Expect that change would not continue to alter

The persona we now are into the one we have

Not yet become?

 

So it is, Spirit tells me, with intellectual and emotional

Development, and so it is with spiritual awareness.

We were designed, He tells me, to blend together

Spiritually, as we diversified, one step at a time.
