Unconditional love is a power so universally recognized that we all aspire to its realization whether we are conscious of it or not. We yearn for it, pray for it and, at times, even fight for it. Throughout time great master teachers have come forth to remind us of it. On a deep inner level, we seem to know and understand that unconditional love does exist and we eventually - or hopefully - will touch its vibration once again.

There is no person, place or thing outside of us that will bring us the experience of unconditional love, and yet it is everywhere. How can this be? Because love already exists within our consciousness, it is a part of each of us. Deep within our true nature lies our divinity and in that divine essence is where we find and express love. Regardless of any name or label we may try to impose upon this divine nature, it is the experience of love that matters. Love is. How can such a power be all pervading and at the same time so elusive?

Maybe we are the ones keeping it out of our lives. Could it be that simple? Are we personally capable of loving unconditionally? Are we actually afraid of embracing and experiencing love of an unconditional nature? Could such a love be recalled, cultivated and brought back into daily use? Absolutely!

You are divine. I am divine. All are divine. As spiritual beings having a human experience, we are all connected in the web of life. Your ability to create reality is the same as mine. The same spark of life that animates life in you is also the one that brings life to me. That spark is love. It is consciousness itself. It is found within the heart center of our being and transcends our ego and intellectual definition.

Ultimately, there is nothing to seek or become, rather a truth to unfold. Through this conscious recognition of the love we have within, we can realize dreams of a brighter world filled with what our heart craves. Love is who we really are. It is what each of us secretly searches for in the deepest reaches of our psyche. Love is the power source of our very being and brings reason to an otherwise chaotic creation born as the result of the separation from love.

Simple idea, yet who of us remembers this in our daily routine? When the challenges and problems seem insurmountable and obstacles appear at every turn, how easy is it to think of the bigger picture of love? When fear and doubt has us in its grip, how do we recall that it is just an illusion and that only love is real? This is the duality we create every day through our thoughts and feelings. We allow our mind to focus on the outer appearance rather than the inner love and guidance that already exists. Yet, there it is, waiting to be recognized and released. It is time to bring this love to the surface of our own awareness and realize its potential to transform our lives.

Love is experienced when it is shared with others unconditionally. We know love when we give love, not the other way around. Approaching life in this fashion places us back on the right side of life. Rather than expecting something to come to us, we recognize our divine right to express the love we are. This is the way we come to know and experience unconditional love.
