Love without condition
I love you as you are, as you seek to find your own special way to relate
to the world. I honour your choices to learn in the way you feel is right
I know it is important that you are the person you want to be and not
someone that I or others think you 'should' be. I realise that I cannot
know what is best for you, although perhaps sometimes I think I do. I have
not been where you have been, viewing life from the angle you have. I do
not know what you have chosen to learn, how you have chosen to learn it,
with whom or in what time period. I have not walked life looking through
your eyes, so how can I know what you need.
I allow you to be in the world without a thought or word of judgement from
me about the deeds you undertake. I see no error in the things you say and
do. In this place where I am, I see that there are many ways to perceive
and experience the different facets of our world. I allow without
reservation the choices you make in each moment. I make no judgement of
this, for if I would deny your right to your evolution, then I would deny
that right for myself and all others.
To those who would choose a way I cannot walk, whilst I may not choose to
add my power and my energy to this way, I will never deny you the gift of
love that God has bestowed within me, for all creation. As I love you, so
I shall be loved. As I sow, so shall I reap?
I allow you the universal right of free will to walk your own path,
creating steps or to sit awhile if that is what is right for you. I will
make no judgement that these steps are large or small, nor light or heavy
or that they lead up or down, for this is just my viewpoint. I may see you
do nothing and judge it to be unworthy and yet it may be that you bring
great healing as you stand blessed by the Light of God. I cannot always
see the higher picture of Divine order.
For it is the inalienable right of all life to choose their own evolution
and with great love I acknowledge your right to determine your future. In
humility I bow to the realisation that the way I see as best for me does
not have to mean it is also right for you. I know that you are led as I
am, following the inner excitement to know your own path.
I know that the many races, religions, customs, nationalities and beliefs
within our world, bring us great richness and allow us the benefit and
teachings of such diverseness. I know we each learn in our own unique way
in order to bring that love and wisdom back to the whole. I know that if
there were only one way to do something, there would need only be one
I will not only love you if you behave in a way I think you should or
believe in those things I believe in. I understand you are truly my
brother and my sister, though you may have been born in a different place
and believe in another God than I.
The love I feel is for all of God's world. I know that every living thing
is a part of God and I feel a love deep within for every person, animal,
tree and flower, every bird, insect, river and ocean and for all the
creatures in all the world.
I live my life in loving service, being the best me I can, becoming wiser
in the perfection of Divine truth, becoming happier in the joy of
