Many of us seek unconditional love from those in our most inner circles. We expect those we love to love us back. Even more so, we expect those who say they love us to show us they love us. Few of us love without expecting anything in return, and that is the ultimate love.
Here are a few key gems that if practiced, will help you to begin to experience and implement the immense power of Unconditional Love.
Be What You Seek
This right here, rings true for a lot of situations in life. A lot of times, we get so caught up in ourselves that we forget about the needs of those whom we love. We become so wrapped up in Me, that we forget to see those around else. Often times, when we are lacking love around us, and I mean sincere love, it is because we fail to give it. When we fail to give compassion towards others, we tend to get compassion less from those around us. So learn to Become What It Is You Want To Find In Others and I Promise, You Will Begin To See The Same Results In Others.
Practice Self Love
For some of us, Self Love doesn’t come easy. Practicing Self Love skills can really help you begin to strengthen your love of self. The reason Self Love is so important when loving others is because it goes back to Being What You Seek. How can you expect anyone to love you if you do not love yourself first and foremost? You have to love you at all costs, even if nobody else does. This is indeed, a hard thing to do for most. Its easy to say we love ourselves, but actually implementing the love of self is an entire different story.
Remember, nobody is perfect! We all make mistakes. Every single one of use whether we choose to admit it or not. Sit back and really think about all the mistakes or poor choices you made while striving to find your place in this world. Use your story to teach others who may not have had the same fortune as you. This will help to develop a level of compassion for others within you.
If you have ever been on play ground, you will see that children, all around, practice the Art of Giving Selflessly without hesitation. A child only knows that it wants to play and what better way to play than with friends? Children will give away practically anything if you allow it and the last thing they are thinking about as young children is what they can get back in return. Giving selflessly, in the end, does benefit you, but it also eliminates any opportunities for false hope and expectations from the person you gave to, thus displaying giving in its most integral form.
Oooh, this is a difficult one for me. Its a funny thing because when it comes to my daughter, I’m super patient, but there are so many other situations where exercising patience is just a bit more difficult for me. However with exercising compassion and selfless giving, your patience will begin to grow. Some people require just a bit more patient than others in order for them to grow.
