The choice between conditional and unconditional love.

You project onto the ego the decision to separate, and this conflicts with the love you feel for the ego because you made it. No love in this world is without this ambivalence, and since no ego has experienced love without ambivalence the concept is beyond its understanding. Love will enter immediately into any mind that truly wants it, but it must want it truly. This means that it wants it without ambivalence, and this kind of wanting is wholly without the ego’s “drive to get.” T-4.III.4:5 - 8

Most people are afraid of love because the ego loves conditionally which is born out of the desire to get. The desire to get is based on the belief in scarcity. In the world of unconditional love there is no scarcity and therefore no desifre to get anything. The witness, observing this dynamic, has a choice to make: to love conditionally or unconditionally? Unconditional love is our natural inheritance and the only thing that is real. It is this recognition, acknowledgement, and choice for unconditional love which brings peace and joy.

Today, reflect on the choice between conditional love and unconditional love and make a decision about how to proceed with life.
