When we are in a relationship we HOLD that love, don’t ever want to lose it. But that is not unconditional love, it is conditional, it is bound by our needs, those fears of not being loved, hence the love we always WANT, those expectations where we ask the other to not do this or that because it is painful, our fears demanding a love, not giving a love.
Anything created on conditions cannot ‘be’ where unconditional is. And in fact it is the opposite to what we think. Anything we have ever striven for…we build. But unconditional is in fact when we ‘let go’…of everything. When understanding something, we release it, no longer having to think it over and over. Understand our fears (or anything else for that matter), and we will let it go. It loses the conditions we had placed on ourselves in holding it, becoming that unconditional love we ever search for.
Just for this Christmas, for a few days…let it all go…the pain, the tears, even the thinking…and just GIVE a hug, even the gift of some time to those around you. If it tugs at any anger or fears…deny them for a while. You deserve that, everybody does. Forget the world, it isn’t going anywhere…but you will go somewhere. Somewhere peaceful, somewhere calm even among the joyful screaming of those children (and some adults 😀), opening gifts. Look at those children’s eyes, copy that sparkle that you can see…it is there in us too, we just cover it over. Breathe…and uncover them for a while…give that gift to you, you deserve them too ❤️
Merry Christmas everyone, may its peace, love and joy visit you all ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋 🎅🏽 🕊 🎄 🎁 ⛄️
