What if unconditional love is the greatest gift of all? Acceptance is when we love ourselves, each other and the planet with no limitations, conditions, judgement or boundaries.
Elizabeth Eiler, in her book, Swift and Brave shares, “Dogs don’t make judgments about physical appearance or abilities, and they don’t care how big your house is or what you do for a living. They care about the quality of your character and your capacity to love.”
Many of us have been conditioned to love predictability and fear the unknown. As a result, we have attached ourselves to a way of life that may be unhealthy for our very existence.
What no one truly teaches us that it’s healthy to let go of attachments to outcomes and hopes. When you get up in the morning, for example, and hope you have a “good” day, you are setting a trap for yourself. Why would you need to hope for such a day? What if instead, you simply got up excited and let your curiosity guide your day?
The deeper question is: what is driving your life and who is actually driving? What beliefs, if any, are getting in the way of what unconditional love you actually deserve?
When you are guided by a fear that your deepest hopes will be shattered or that you need to “manifest” that partner or job or outcome, you are actually giving away your power. Did you come to this planet to only hope or did you come here to be a powerful creator of a healthy life?
When you understand that hoping for something or someone is an attachment to a specific outcome, you can start becoming aware of what story you want to play out in your life. And why you feel disappointment when it doesn’t materialize.
Imagine that you start practicing unconditional love, which means you have no room for even the smallest judgment. This does not discount the role of discernment, but you can discern without judgment. That is the key to opening the pathways within you to possibilities and opportunities.
Judgments, shaming and blaming yourself and others weigh you down and keep you stuck. Letting go of judgment sets you free as conflicts and disharmony within yourself and others fall away.
Sometimes, to love completely, you must let go of people and situations that are unhealthy to your wellbeing. This, too, is love.
You no longer need to attach yourself to the echos of your past.
There is no real need for irrational fears, feelings of lack, doubts, judgement or a need to control when you master the art of letting go. You are enough.
Do you know what you are attached to and why you are attached?
You are a powerful creator and so much rests on whether you choose to live in awareness or stay stuck in someone else’s story of how your life should be. Can you let go of needing to control outcomes? Are you truly open to unconditional love?
