Love without condition


I love you as you are, as you seek to find your own special way to relate to the world. I honour your choices to learn in the way you feel is right for you.

I know it is important that you are the person you want to be and not someone that I or others think you 'should' be. I realise that I cannot know what is best for you, although perhaps sometimes I think I do. I do not know what you have chosen to learn, how you have chosen to learn it, with whom or in what time period. I have not been where you have been, looking at life through your eyes, so how can I know what you need.

I allow you to be in the world without a thought or word of judgement from me about the deeds you undertake. I see no error in the things you say and do. In this place where I am, I see that there are many ways to perceive and experience the different facets of our world. I allow without reservation the choices you make in each moment. I make no judgement of this, for if I would deny your right to your evolution, then I would deny that right for myself and all others.

To those who would choose a way I cannot walk, whilst I may not choose to add my power and my energy to this way, I will never deny you the gift of love that God has bestowed within me, for all creation. As I love you, so I shall be loved. As I sow, so shall I reap.

I allow you the universal right of free will to walk your own path, creating steps or to sit awhile if that is what is right for you. I will make no judgement that these steps are large or small, nor light or heavy or that they lead up or down, for this is just my viewpoint. I may see you do nothing and judge it to be unworthy and yet it may be that you bring great healing as you stand blessed by the Light of God. I cannot always see the higher picture of Divine order. 

For it is the inalienable right of all life to choose their own evolution and with great love I acknowledge your right to determine your future. In humility I bow to the realisation that the way I see as best for me does not have to mean it is also right for you. I know that you are led as I am, following the inner excitement to know your own path.

I know that the many races, religions, customs, nationalities and beliefs within our world, bring us great richness and allow us the benefit and teachings of such diverseness. I know we each learn in our own unique way in order to bring that love and wisdom back to the whole. I know that if there were only one way to do something, there would need only be one person.

I will love even if you behave differently than I think you should or believe differently than I do. I understand you are truly my brother and my sister, though you may have been born in a different place and believe in another God than I.

The love I feel is for all of God's world. I know that every living thing is a part of God and I feel a love deep within for every person, animal, tree and flower, every bird, insect, river and ocean and for all the creatures in all the world.

I live my life in loving service, being the best me I can, becoming wiser in the perfection of Divine truth, becoming happier in the joy of

'Unconditional Love' is on many web sites. It's also in my books 'The Awakener' and 'All that is Love'. It's been printed in magazines around the world. Of all the things I've written, Unconditional Love is my favourite. In essence, I sort of feel we all wrote it.

I've never mentioned how it came to be written. I was living in the UK and visiting a friend who had several friends staying. I was talking with one of them who appeared to have a lot of difficulty loving anyone very much at all. This person's conversation was racist and judgmental and they said they were convinced large numbers of the population were not meant to be loved. As I listened I realised I personally had not heard this view expressed very often and certainly not so strongly. My own friends tend to be non racist and non judgmental. I think we get messages in life and that day it was a message for me to hear. I was being shown a view that was probably shared by others. I went home and wrote ‘Unconditional Love.’

With the Grace of God, it's now been read by thousands and from the letters and comments received, it seems it has helped. The gentleman who had unwittingly prompted the idea to write it, had unbeknownst to him (on a conscious level), ended up creating more love.

We all help each, even when it seems accidental. I'm so grateful for each moment. Really grateful. I recall many years ago I really believed I knew what gratitude was, but one day I really got it. It was a magical moment of realisation of the perfection, magnitude and beauty of the Divine Plan. That moment of understanding brought an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for everyone and everything in existence. Along with it came the realisation that all of us are helping each other.

May each perfect moment continue to bring that which helps us grow and be the best us we can.

What a perfect day.

Unconditional Love,

Sandy Stevenson
