Love without Conditions, by Paul Ferrini

FaceBook  On Sep 27, 2011 Navin sata wrote:

            Love Unconditionally: Love eliminates ALL differences

"Pure love is willingness to give without thought of receiving anything back in return"

- From the book, The Peace Pilligram"

We are raised in a world by conditional love of me,mine; my wife, my husband, my children, my house, my job, my car, my city, my country, my religious beliefs, my political views, my opinions, etc...There is NO end to all this division.  This way of thinking, if you will.  I believe that this is the root cause of all of our attachments to the material world.  It's bondage and so many don't even realize it, blinded by the lustful and "good" things that money can buy us.  There is nothing wrong in loving our family, friends, or our country.  One MUST keep an open mind and expand family circle to one big universal family.  A spiritual person transforms all this allowing him to learn the truth of unconditional love.  The results will be freedom from worries and  freedom from bondage of the material world.  That, in itself is priceless.           

1. There is no path greater than unconditional love! 

2. There is no law higher than love 

3. And there is no goal beyond love

4. God and unconditional love are identical -Mehar baba  .
