“When you look into your mother’s eyes. you know that is the purest love you can find on this earth.” -Mitch Albom, For One More Day
Today I came across a post that said,”If you could get rid of one thing in the world what would it be?”. There were answers like hate, greed, corruption, etc.. I sat and did some thinking about this and I came to the conclusion that it was the wrong question. The appropriate question would be, “What would you do to change the world?”. I would teach the world to love unconditionally. Why you say? If we were able to love unconditionally there would be no hate, corruption, greed etc.. Those things could not survive in a world that truly loved unconditionally. If a person’s heart was that full of love hate couldn’t survive.
Unconditional love in its simplest form means appreciating someone else for who they truly are. It means loving them when they are unlovable, and in spite of their imperfections and mistakes. At a deeper level, it means never, ever questioning whether you’ll feel any other way toward a person. You’ll never judge them and you will accept them for who they are. It means loving someone regardless of their race, religion, nationality and their handicaps.
“To love everyone unconditionally does not mean to give everyone your unconditional time. Sometimes, to love completely, we must never see someone again. This too is love. This is giving someone the freedom to exist and be happy, even if it must be without you.” – Veronika Tugaleva
I am a firm believer to take someone’s life, one’s heart must be full of hate. A lot of times it is blamed on child abuse during one’s childhood. That abuse fueled hate and filled that person’s heart to the point they had no regard for another person’s life and they were willing to take that person’s life without hesitation. If that individual would have been loved like a child should be, in all probability they would have never taken another person’s life.
If unconditional love ruled the world there wouldn’t be people living on the streets, crime wouldn’t exist, there wouldn’t be any corruption in our police departments or government. Unconditional love would trump the cause of all these negative things. Our children would know what respect is. It would end hunger. Wars would be non-existent.
I am a realist however and know this Utopia, so to speak, is more my imagination than a reality. A great idea and pleasant thought. Wouldn’t it be great to wake up some morning to a world like this though?
“We are the world, we are the children. We are the ones who make a brighter day so lets start giving. There’s a choice we’re making, we’re saving our own lives, its true we’ll make a better day just you and me.” – We Are The World USA For Africa
I thank you for taking the time to read my blog. I guess it would fit into a fantasy category. In my heart I think it is a beautiful thought. Be kind to one another, share the love and don’t squat with your spurs on.
