“Unconditional Love – You’ve Got it All Wrong”

 

“So, I love you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you.”   (Paulo Coelho)

“When we love, we always strive to become better than we are.  When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.”   (Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist)

“We’re all a little weird.  And life is a little weird.  And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness — and call it love — true love.”   (Robert Fulghum, True Love)

“Dear Human:

You’ve got it all wrong.

You didn’t come here to master unconditional love. This is where you came from and where you’ll return.

You came here to learn personal love.

Universal love.

Messy love.

Sweaty Love.

Crazy love.

Broken love.

Whole love.

Infused with divinity.

Lived through the grace of stumbling.

Demonstrated through the beauty of… messing up.

Often.

You didn’t come here to be perfect, you already are.

You came here to be gorgeously human.

Flawed and fabulous.

And rising again into remembering.

But unconditional love?  Stop telling that story.

Love in truth doesn’t need any adjectives.

It doesn’t require modifiers.

It doesn’t require the condition of perfection.

It only asks you to show up.

And do your best.

That you stay present and feel fully.

That you shine and fly and laugh and cry and hurt and heal and fall and get back up and play and work and live and die as you.

It’s enough.

It’s plenty.”   (Courtney A. Walsh)
