Dear Human:

A reply to Courtney A. Walsh..see below..            (Thanks, CP..!!)

Another perspective..  :)

Dear Human:
You've got it all wrong.
Unconditional love is recognized not mastered.
It is what you are not where you came from or return.
Love is not personal but impersonal.
Love is eternal. Recognize this first
then notice the colorations.
Messy love.
Sweaty love. 
Whole love.
Infused with divinity
Stumbling within grace
Messing up as beauty.
You are already infinite YOU.
Colored as
gorgeous and flawed and fabulous.
Forgetting then remembering.
Unconditional love is the story which is not a story.
No adjectives needed.
Or modifiers.
Or the condition of perfection.
Show up as your real identity.
and you will do your best.
Stay present and feel fully.
Shine and fly and laugh and cry and hurt
and heal with your new recognition.
Recognize this and you will be YOU.
It's all there is.
and Plenty...

Dear Human:
You've got it all wrong.
You didn't come here to master unconditional love. 
This is where you came from and where you'll return.
You came here to learn personal love.
Universal love.
Messy love.
Sweaty Love.
Crazy love.
Broken love.
Whole love.
Infused with divinity.
Lived through the grace of stumbling.
Demonstrated through the beauty of... messing up.
You didn't come here to be perfect, you already are.
You came here to be gorgeously human. Flawed and fabulous.
And rising again into remembering.
But unconditional love? Stop telling that story.
Love in truth doesn't need any adjectives.
It doesn't require modifiers.
It doesn't require the condition of perfection.
It only asks you to show up.
And do your best.
That you stay present and feel fully.
That you shine and fly and laugh and cry and hurt and heal 
and fall and get back up and play and work and live and die as YOU.
Its enough.
It's Plenty
