Where they are…
When we truly love
people, we must meet
them where they are,
not where we think
they should be. We
must give them what
they need, not what
we think they need
to have. We must respect
who they are, not what
we think they ought
to be. That’s love.
We may all strive for unconditional love.
We not only want to love others unconditionally, but we also want others to love us unconditionally.
That would be possible in a utopian society, but in our world, people are so self centered that they rarely do anything for others unconditionally.
Our whole existence is based on doing things for each other and being paid or repaid for what we do.
The more we do basically, the more we get.
The higher our status becomes, the more we can expect from others.
More money, more care, more of whatever becomes important to us.
But this doesn’t necessarily promote more LOVE.
In fact, it often separates people from their close friends and family members.
Always thinking we deserve more is the opposite of unconditional love.
Unconditional love is self less not – more for the self.
Loving the self is much different than feeling that we deserve more from other people.
We need to find the receiving mode from our true self, our inner being and listen to it.
From there we are able to express our own self love out to others.
That is the only way to really LOVE anyone or any thing unconditionally.
If we don’t have it, we can’t share it.
So many people try but they always fall short and end up feeling defeated in their endeavors.
Usually frustrated and reacting with anger because once again, they haven’t manipulated anyone into loving them.
But they don’t know any better.
They are just doing the best they can with what they have.
They just don’t know how to do the deep work of getting to know their own loving inner being.
So all they have to share is conditional love, judgement and manipulation.
No wonder their relationships don’t last very long.
Going from one person to the next looking for LOVE in all the wrong places.
Looking for love from someone else who doesn’t know how to love themselves either.
What a circus their life ends up being.
Blaming one person after the next. Justifying their current losses.
Always striving to find someone else who is loving and kind, when all they really need to do is find their own true love – their inner self – and the search is over.
Then we can look at others with love.
Accepting them right where they are.
Respecting them right where they are.
Allowing others to just be themselves
while we love them unconditionally
because we are being our own true loving selves.
And we are filled with our own true self love
that it will over flow to everyone around us,
meeting them where ever they are.
