Unconditional Love, Unconditional Friendship

“The greatest gift that you can give to others is the gift of unconditional love and acceptance.”
~ Brian Tracy

“Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.” ~ Dalai Lama

How wonderful it is to be loved — and to love — with an open heart for all that we are. When I feel accepted, and accept myself and others, there is a lightheartedness that fills me with ease, and my burdens blow gently away.

For more inspiration read these excellent posts: at Tiny Buddha on Love and Compassion, and at Always Well Within on Loving Kindness.

Spread a little kindness and lighten-up someone’s life, and your own… let others know you love them just the way they are.

    It’s impossible not to agree with those comments isn’t it? But I am struggling today to accept someone who isn’t showing me acceptance. When someone is being completely judgmental and critical of the choices I make and of my values, it’s really difficult to treat them with acceptance and kindness. I’m afraid I haven’t really managed to, if I’m honest :(

    Perhaps I need a more neutral response when people aren’t kind to me …. “I’m sorry you feel that way!” might cut it in a few situations I can think of. Any other thoughts?

    • I understand completely. In reality it’s hard to be kind in response when faced with negativity. There is a great little book called “The Four Agreements”, by Don Miguel Ruiz, and one of the agreements is “Don’t take anything personally”. This book is small and a quick read. Check it out… I think you’ll like it. :~)

        That sounds great – I’ll look for that!
        It is really hard to response kindly as you say. I responded badly to someone yesterday. I had PMT – that’s my excuse! But I really wish I could deal better with situations where someone is really out of order. I don’t want to be used like a doormat but I do want to be kind when I say no and draw the line.

  2. One of my favorite quotes is by Goethe – be kind for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

    Your post really inspired me, it came at a time that I started to doubt unconditional love’s existence. I’ve had some family problems, but my friends stepped up and showed me that I have a bigger support net than I thought. I’ll be using your design to thank them.
    So thank you!

  4. Sue,
    I’ve been with my son-in-laws and I’m getting a lot of practice loving them just the way they are! They have always been my biggest teachers. Hope all is well with you!

    Hi Sue … I like your ideas and the encouragement you give to others to live as their true and beautiful selves! I would like to pass on to you the “Kreative Blogger” award … as it was passed on to me. Apparently “the rules” are that we share 10 things about ourselves and nominate 6 other bloggers whose posts we enjoy … YOU are one of mine. Wishing you continued success and much Joy in life … Susanne … http://www.motivationfromtheheart.com
