Conditional and unconditional love
Osho. Maturity: The Responsibility of Being Oneself (Osho Insights for a New Way of Living) . St. Martin's Press.p.52
Love is not conditional. Love is unconditional. You love just because you feel like doing it.
Unconditional love comes from abundance not from scarcity. One loves unconditionally
when joy is overflowing.
The mature person is past “give to get” and “one or the other” and “me or you.” There is only “we.” The “I” is gone.
Unconditional loving comes from having one’s priorities straight. First comes God, then comes me, then comes you, and then everyone and everything else. Putting God first, the circle expands naturally as everything is part of Godliness.
Unconditional love is an awareness of nondual Oneness. It is born from cosmic consciousness. It is in cosmic consciousness that we put our faith.
