I have experienced in myself and from others both kinds of love: conditional love and unconditional love-love with expectations in return and with no expectations in return, with attachment and without attachment. The first kind of love arises in and from the "lower heart" and the second type of love arises from the "higher heart". There are also times when I have experienced both in varying degrees. I am a human being. The human part is associated with my lower heart and the being part is associated with my higher heart. When I accept the hurt and disappointment with grace as a way of growing and maturing, I move into the pure and unconditional love. I feel I am maturing and getting a little wiser from my experiences. To me experiencing love and growing from love is a life long encouraging process.
