unconditional love

The way she slept in his bed made his heart warm with strange feelings. Her body coiled up like a small nocturnal animal, hands folded neatly on her waist. As he crept closer to gaze at her, she stirred, ever so slightly. Open out her hands, eyes still closed, she said in a dreamy voice:
‘Come, warmth.’
That was the moment he knew this girl was his home.

Maybe there’s a part in everyone of us that craves affection. We’re all animals anyway - we instinctively look for warmth and protection. Even if we don’t admit it, or shy away from it, that part still exists within us. Are we weak then, because we long for affection or are we strong because we know we cannot survive without one another?
After several mornings of relapse over conditional love, something changed today. It was the way I saw myself. It’s when you become aware that you are made from love. I realized you don’t honor me in the way that someone with true love in their heart would. Love feels warm and in all of the forms it comes in, you don’t reflect any of them. You don’t mirror my soul and I have to know and love what I am looking into.
i guarantee you that one day you’re going to need me. you’re going to need me to comfort you like i did, to care for you like i did, to give you unconditional love like i did… but you took advantage of it back then. so when that day comes, just know that i won’t let you use me again

Making a difference in the world does not have to involve something overwhelming massive. You don’t need to find the cure for cancer or completely put an end to world hunger. Making a difference in the world comes from many small acts of kindness, each and every day. It comes from shedding light onto the lives of others’. YOU can make a difference. You can.

I just want one person to fight for me. To make me feel like I’m worth never letting go. I need someone to fight for me so selflessly and passionately; so much so, I can feel it through the universe. I want someone to hold on tight to me, because they know I’m worth it, the way I know I’m worth it.

Everyone in your life is loving you right now, to the best of their ability.
Their hearts are as closed or as open as they can possibly be right now.

Everyone is dealing with sorrows, fears and joys you may never know. Seeking love in their own way.

When you’re trying to get love from others, it really matters how open or closed their hearts are today.
You go to war with them, trying to crack them open.

When you’re not seeking love, but instead knowing love as your own true nature, feeling the source of love in your own brilliant heart, you are free, and the battle for love ends.

You can now let others love you in their own unique way. However ‘limited’ that may seem to the mind.

Because through the eyes of abundance, even limited love is a blessing. An open heart is a miracle, yes, but a closed heart is also to be honoured.

So you can let others love you as much as they do.

You are no longer a beggar for love.
For you know the true source of love:
YOU.
