I'm sorry, but true love is not "unconditional" as you state. This is a cop out of an answer to the question of love.
Love is conditional, and it should be. We do not love evil or those who willfully perpetrate evil against their fellow man. Make no mistake, there are people who willfully perpetrate evil against others.
If your six-year-old was willfully sexually abused by an unrepentatnt pedophile, would you really love that person?
all of life is made from light-all light waves have two sides equally complimentary balanced instantaneously. thus, to "perceive" being hurt, is to only look at something two-sided as one-sided. it is both positive/negative balanced instantly. another view big picture-go to scripture that suggests God is love, God is light. everything is light. our whole universe is made of "frozen light" at the level of quantum physics. you in essence are light perceiving light.
Because love is (just) a feeling. Not being cynical but I've come to realise that it just is. It is ALL about how that person makes you FEEL. Whether that person makes you feel high or low, they make you 'feel' sumthin'... And it is this feeling that you are in love with. Not the person.
I don't know.. I love someone who doesn't love me anymore, and I cannot help but loving him still - and secretly hoping that one day he will find the spark back. It feels like love, maybe it isn't, who knows... What does help me: I realised that wallowing in self-pity and whining and complaining and being a victim didn't do anything to bring him back - so the only thing I can do is be happy and my own radiant self, like the me he fell in love with 4 years ago. And then just hope that he'll notice and realise what he has thrown away. Hope this helps.
I am not sure this is love. I think that love is foremost an act of love towards ourselves. So a love that makes us suffer is not love. It is not true love. Maybe we need to suffer? And if so, why? Maybe we want a revenge? And if so, why? In our hearts we all have questions and we have all the answers
Two things:1. It's considered bad form on here to post a thread solely for the purpose of publicising your hubs (unless you want them to be given a thorough critique, in which case post a link to them in the...
Or have most people gone back to the feudalistic medieval mindset: that marriage is purely for the procurement and protection of property? I have seen so many people hide from their emotions because they are afraid of...
