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.

A cosmic reporter assigned to Earth

Spirit, at times, seems to pretend to be an alien reporter, who is

Curious to learn more about the strange ways we humans

Relate to each other.

 

We are, He tells me, or seem to be, otherwise intelligent beings,

So, why, He asks, are we, or some of us, so interested in

Establishing new schools of thought?

 

What seems to be needed, considering such widespread

Environmental destruction, is a new way of being, a new way

Of living with each other, in a more mutually supportive

Manner, and in harmony with nature.

 

To exploit natural resources is to abuse your future, our future,,

And the future of tomorrow’s people.

 

I want very much to defend myself and everyone else, but

I don’t know how.

 

There is no defence. He reads my thoughts. But, we will

Learn from experience, the cost of our neglect.
