Unconditional love: The Hardest Lesson!

Updated on December 26, 2015

Only babies understand unconditional love!

The universe favors those who operate in love!

Life is not what it should be!

The sun is shining, but I feel very cold.

I fell in love, but the spark is no more there.

I got my PhD, but I experienced no joy

Something important is missing!


There is invisible black baggage;

The burden is unbearable.

My closest friends asked me with concern:

“Why are you so detached; so cold?”

“I feel no love; my life is empty!” I replied.


Planet earth is beautiful; but no longer to me!

The Creator adorned it with goodies I liked;

All are meaningless; all have lost value!

I dare not ask anyone; but it hurts so badly!

I need someone wise to restore my love of life!


“The Creator is in control, He speak from His throne”.

The still voice spoke with compassion and authority!

I fell on my knees; begging for revelation.

Lord! Please help me see what you see!

I deeply wanted to feel love; it was a sincere prayer.


In dream, I saw myself walking in a dark valley.

Earnestly seeking a light; feeling danger around me.

Tripping over stones and living objects!

Suddenly, I fell in a deep hole!

“Lord!” I cried in terror and desperation!


A saw a lightening-like light in my falling state!

A light so overwhelming; it expelled darkness instantly.

My horror was blissfully terminated!

Gentle hands pulled me up and held me tightly!

Love flooded my whole being! What a joy!


I woke up in cold sweat and embarrassing scream!

Realizing with relief, that I am alive and well!

Noticing that the universe had heard my cry!

Noticing also the lightness of my body;

The baggage has been removed!


Revelation is given: Relationship with my mother!

Though she lived; I had condemned her!

She had a baby; and I did not approve.

Rudely I had displayed my displeasure.

My father had died: why a strange baby?


The burden was removed; love is abound again!

I dishonored my mother and judged her.

The Lord did not approve of my behavior.

I had closed the door and He did the same.

I lived in condemnation; I was without Him!


The Creator is Love; He is holy and fair!

Nothing pleases Him without love.

Without love you are, and have nothing.

“Love without conditions!” He said.

I withheld love and I experienced hell!


Back on my knees; I prayed!

With gratitude I shouted praises.

Oh my Lord! I was lost and You found me!

I experienced rebirth! My spirit sang.

The Lord came to restore the lost soul!


All seemed new. What a bright day!

I called my aunt; “where can I find mom?”

“Your mom is here; she had come three months ago!”

“Forgive me mom!” I begged her.

The Lord restores. He is Love!

Unconditional love demonstrates spiritual enlightenment!

    Thank you dashingscorpio! Your point on sexual incompatibility is noted. Yes, staying in loveless relationship is not ideal by any standards.

    Theresa, I believe for most people there is no such thing as unconditional love in sexual relationships.

    Each of us gets to choose our own friends, lovers, and spouse.

    The goal is to find someone who shares your same values, wants the same things for the relationship, naturally agrees on how to obtain those things, and last but not least have a mutual depth of love and desire for one another.

    We live in a time where sex and love are not automatically connected to one another. Therefore if people are sexually incompatible they are far more likely to breakup or cheat if they feel it's their better option.

    Staying in an unhappy relationship/marriage is not a virtue.

    It's a waste of time one can never get back.

    Than you dashingscorpio! I agree that you cannot give what you do not have; thus loving self first is critical because you will not allow people to treat your otherwise. I wonder though what the impact will be if you take unconditional love out of sexual relationship equation!

    Unconditional love is usually spoken in terms of God's love for mankind or a parent's love for their children.

    Generally speaking when it comes to all other relationships in our lives it is deemed as either "unhealthy" or "co-dependency"

    In order for one to love and respect {them self} they must have "boundaries" or "deal breakers" when it comes to dealing with people because if they don't they risk becoming a doormat.

    Each of us (chooses) our friends, lovers, and spouse.

    We get to (choose) who we spend our time.

    If we love ourselves we will (choose wisely).

    "Never love anyone who treats you like you're ordinary."

    - Oscar Wilde

    Lots of people stay in (toxic relationships) because they don't "love" themselves.
