Life's Biggest Lessons
"The biggest lesson, in a sense I got,
is the power of unconditional love.
I think there is no power on earth,
like unconditional love."

What does unconditional love mean? It means simply this: To love. Regardless. Absolutely. To fully accept.
Can we worry about someone and love them? Those two things vibrate at such different frequencies that it is like trying to get the music on 101.9 FM by tuning to 740 AM. Not even close.
Can we be disappointed in them and love them? Be angry at them and love them? Feel jealousy about them and love them? Feel grief and love them? Feel discouragement and love them? Be frustrated with them and love them? Have impatience or irritation and love them?
In really loving them, this emotion is at the top of the scale, and fear, grief, and despair are at the complete opposite end of that scale. They are completely and totally incompatible.
If we truly love someone, it would be without any condition and without any negative emotion. We just love them. We want the best for them. We want them to love others the way we love them. We cannot be loving and feeling negative emotions at the same time. It cannot be. The frequencies don't match.
Can we allow those we love to make mistakes? Especially those situations that we know to be mistaken? Yes. Imagine your own life without so-called mistakes. We learn by thinking and doing. Besides, in unconditional love, it isn't really a mistake, it is purely a result.
Another word for unconditional love is freedom. By loving you are giving freedom. You know what freedom really feels like. You want that for others too.
Another word for unconditional love is empowerment. By loving you are empowering others. You know how being empowered feels. You want that for others too.
Another word for unconditional love is joy. You know what joy feels like. You want that for others too.
Another word for unconditional love is appreciation. You know what it feels like to appreciate. You want that for others too.
There Is Nothing So Empowering, Uplifting, Freeing, Joyful, And Appreciative As Unconditional Love.
Spread Some Joy Today--Hmm. . . that would be done mainly by loving without condition. . .
