"Begin to see yourself
as a soul with a body
rather than a body with a soul."
-- Wayne Dyer
One of the best ways to think of unconditional love is that everyone is loved the same.
I was thinking today about how we revere certain people and how we despise others. That brought me to this thought development:
No man or woman is greater than any other.
At the same time, no man or woman is less than any other.
Although, every man and woman is different than all others.
So consider all those revered in history or current affairs, such as, world leaders, inventors, movie stars, rock 'n roll idols, financial tycoons, and so much more. Consider that though they are important and valued, they are no better than you or me or the bum on the street, or the poorest of the poor in some country. It's hard to consider because we are so used to judgment. We were taught it at an early age and have used it constantly throughout our lives.
Wayne Dyer says it nicely when he said, "When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself."
Now consider all those who are reviled in history, along with current affairs, such as despots, terrorists, dictators, murderers, traitors, and so much more. Consider that though they are not important and not valued, they are truly no less than you or me, or the best of the best receiving the highest awards. It's so hard to seriously consider this because of how we have come to make judgments that define how we see people.
However, if we can suspend judgment just for a little while, we might be able to find a way to accept both opposites by using an alternative method. That method is seeing that they are different than us, and then accepting them by using our magic wand called unconditional love.
We cannot help being different. We would not be individuals if we were not different from one another, so accepting this fact is not too hard. Suspending judgment is. Yet until we can suspend judgment of those being better than or less than us, we are not making use of unconditional love.
What if we are all here on a journey we chose before we came here? What if our Source, or God really does love each of us and all things unconditionally? I believe that this is true and from that place of unconditional love, there are not good and bad, better or worse, there only is, and all are loved the same. I also believe that love, and especially unconditional love is the single most powerful force in the entire Universe.
We All Have The Same Potential To Love Unconditionally. Because We Are Different, Some Choose Yes, And Some Choose No. I Celebrate The Differential Act Of Choice.
