the l word.

well, we come to the letter l.

it stands for a lot of words, but only one is important.

without this word, all of the others are meaningless.

the word is love.

but there is more.

the only type of love that makes everything else work is the unconditional love for the self.

this is no simple thing.

this is the thing of wars and of murder and of death.

because people get it wrong.

they think that love comes from someone else.

and so they start to look.

this girl, that girl, this boy, that boy...........

and then these people leave.

and they do, don`t they?

and what happens?

then you don`t feel so good anymore.

but they must come back.

so you do everything you can to get them to come back.

and you feel better.............

but you know, in the back of your mind, that they could do it again unless you work very hard to work on the "relationship".

and that doesn`t sound like love anymore does it?

that sounds like a game of "you`d better do this or that or i`ll leave again".

love yourself unconditionally and you will accept whatever another person does because it will be ok whatever they do.

find someone else who feels this way and enjoy being with them.

keep looking until you find them, if that`s what you want. if you feel the need to be close to someone.......and we do.

it feels good.

Everything, and I mean everything, has conditions.

i didn`t mean that you had to stick around to put up with what the other person does..........unless you enjoyed it.

and i don`t think everything does have conditions bill. the sun comes up every morning whether i (choose your favorite supplication.....) or not.

i choose not to bind others out of obligation and conversely don`t appreciate others doing the same to me.

for instance, you can post any comment you like here and i`ll choose to comment however i like in return.

i expect the same curteousy in the coffee shop or on the soccer field, though there are those who try thier shit, but i`m consistant.

our conditioning to conscience makes us believe that everything has conditions, but that`s just legal bullshit.

read the history of the magna carta and freemen.

i stand by my initial statement about unconditional love for the self.

the hardest thing some people can do is stay out of other people`s business. they actually believe they have a right to interfere.
