Unconditional Love

Sometimes we forget that the people whom we love the most are only human beings like ourselves, so conflict will inevitably be an occasional part of even our closest interpersonal relationships. Though we may not always appreciate the choices family and friends make, or the path they choose to take in life, we can nonetheless remind them that we will always love them by lending them our sincerest support. Our opinions concerning our loved ones will change from day to day, yet the love we feel for them will remain constant. This love allows us to stay committed to our relationships even during those times when our ideas and those of the people we care for are vastly different. Unconditional love which most agree is the only true love, does indeed conquers all. Your thoughts please.

True love is one of covenant & our actions are to follow to back up that unconditional love. Hey, all of us are human & we all live in a fallen world so conflicts are not uncommon but we can either go with "love covers a multitude of sin" or make a mountain out of a mole hill

The love of a mother or father for a child is a good example of what unconditional love means.

I love each person in my life. Differently mind you because I don't care what folks say... each person is different and so is your love for and about them. I take them as they are. If what choices they are making is a danger to me or my family I may not be around them but it doesn't change my love for them or my desire to see them on get through it. I will be there when they are ready. Humanity is bound to mess up but that's ok... I can deal with that. I wish more people accepted their friends and family felt that way.

Yes I agree that unconditional love conquers all. This kind of love is what I think all couples need to have a long and lasting relationship. This kind of love may make a couple stronger and have better love foundation. This kind of love will make less couples love their partners and resist temptations brought by others. It is that love that will make them strong and hold on to their love. I know that there is one kind of unconditional love and that is a mother's love to her kid. It is very hard to find that kind of love especially when there are child abuses or child killings. But then when a mother loves it is unconditional. It does not happen to all and that is the sad reality. It only happens to few. Unconditional love to your partner is also not present to other couples or lovers. Respect should follow love because it is also needed. Love will make us feel better and it will give us inspiration. Quarrels are part of life and we should handle them with balance between mind and heart. We should always think many times before we decide to end the love we ones started so that we won't regret the decisions we make. Regret is always at the end so always remember that we should be very careful with our decisions about love.

Often the ones we love the most are the ones we are emotionally involved with, which means the ones we react most strongly to. This should not change our love for them but it can change our day to day response to them. We are human also.

Hi savypat, Thank you for responding and what you say is very true. We all wonder sometimes why it is that we hurt the most, those we love the most. It is those that we are closest to that must realize just how human we all are. Blessings.

unconditional love, is when you inlove to someone you can give everything just to make his/her happy even without any complains, returns. all of us feel it when we have a chances to prove that this is the love, the real love we longing for.

It's one reason why we still understand a friend even sometimes she had done us wrong. Others may don't understand that we are weighing the situation to what extent we could be patient when it comes to loved ones and friends. Unconditional love can't just be disregarded when it comes to people who'd been close to our hearts. Its just like saying the unconditional love of the Lord almighty to us his children, that we are always forgiven as long as we remorse or ask forgiveness.

Hi Pose, I couldn't agree more. The very first dicussion i started here in mylot is "Trust don't need any condition". I think the principle are the same. If you really trust someone, you just trust them, but you can not request them trust you back. If you are expecting them to give you something, then you are exchange your trust. The same to love, if you really love someone, no matter what they did, you will love them as always. One of my teachers once talked to me, love only give you the rights to show your care your love towards someone, love does not give you the rights to use love to control that one, to ask that one to love you back just because you love them. I think he is absolutely right.

Hi vivianchen, Thank you for your thoughts and I would agree that the principle is similar to the discussion you started. Unconditional love does not demand anything in return, it cannot, and therefore is the only true and perfect love. Blessings.

Love with condition is not real love. but only a few person can have this title "really lover" I think. how can our humanbeings do like that ,only pay out but never get back any ?

Hi Pose~ It is not always easy to be loved unconditionally. As you said, with human relationships it is difficult. With humans there is love, but sometimes that comes judgments. Even though there is love it is not always easy to remain unconditional when human emotions come into the equation. When emotions are involved and different personalites and other things it is not always easy to keep love unconditional even when it is family or others that are close to us. And sometimes things fall apart and it is hard to put things back together again. When you find unconditional love, you must hold on to it because it truly is a treasure to contain~

Hi Opal, Thank you for commending and what you say is true, unconditional loves does not come easy, and often there is inner conflict. True love however, can have no conditions. Blessings.

Pose- I will say that "Love is the Law, Love under Will" is statement that sums this up very nicely. I think it's why I've been drawn towards Thelema as of late. We must all live Agape love, the love the Christ truly taught and showed others. This is what true love is. It also means that we must ourselves be with True Will. When we are, we can do no wrong.

I totally agree with you that real love never fails. We have to be willing to look past ones faults and see that they are only humans searching just like we are, just as you said.

Pose123,I can only agree with what you have written. Indeed it is hard to understand what love is all about. Love is a wonderful feeling, it is the radiance of your life. Yet it can be so harmful for others who uses love as a weapon to hurt someone they love. Love is a commitment and yet unconditional. If starts a score board who does more or pays more then the radiance disappears!Love one another as I have loved you. John 13:34-35 This sounds simple but complex and complicated.

Hi foisgras, Thank you for commenting. Love is the answer, perfect love casts out fear and also fulfills the law. Someday we will understand it's true meaning much better than we do now. Blessings.
