Loving without concern if love is returned. No agenda or judgment. Loving someone purely for exactly who they are, with no conditions attached. Loving completely and consistently. Discernment may be present, but judgment is absent. Forgiveness of self and others and releasing all guilt as a prerequisite for unconditional love. Understanding that human suffering causes people to hurt others. Non-attachment to insult and injury, and compassion for the suffering of others. No bartering, controls or possessiveness. Love is the basis for what we all crave. The one who is loving is the blessed one, as they are feeling the love; they have the open heart. Loving with no inner criticisms or judgment. Removing old pain from the heart to open it to loving. Hurtful people are too full of pain to feel unconditional love. A loving heart is like a magnet. Love begets love.
