There is no such thing as unconditioned love. Duh! What a truism! most of you will say. Well, you should know I am not writing this down for the many, but for the few. Those few might say: How about one loving somebody without expecting anything in return! Isn’t that unconditioned love? Oh, yeah! Something like this is still possible and is such a magnificent feeling. But… sorry to disappoint you folks! It’s not at all the expression of unconditioned love.
One loves without expecting anything in return because one has reasons. The object of one’s love fulfills the condition of being beautiful, or smart, or intelligent, or intriguing, or complex, or misterious, or… anything you can think of. Some of those are the condition for one’s non-expectance in return for the feelings. There is nothing to expect, ‘cause one has already got something in return for one’s love: the beauty, or the mistery, or the complexity, or the intelligence etc.
Voices will raise: No, no, no! I’m sure he/she loves me for simply being. And he/she doesn’t expect anything in return. True. But he/she can do that because you are fulfilling the main condition of being loved: YOU EXIST!
Do you still believe in unconditioned love?
