I was watching Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday today, I had last Sunday’s on the DVR. Her guest was Dr. Wayne Dyer, whom I LOVE tremendously! I would be willing to go on record that Wayne Dyer has been most instrumental in the transformation that has occurred in my life over the last 5 years! WOW……5 years? I had not realized so much time had passed. Anyway, so yes, Wayne Dyer was the guest!
He was talking about his newest book, Wishes Fulfilled, yes I have it and am reading it. As I was watching Wayne and Oprah talking the stuff of spirituality he started speaking of Divine Love. It got me to remembering when I spoke to a friend and really not just one friend but multiple friends/people over the years about “unconditional love”; for me the true desire in my journey has been to find unconditional love. As such I have had many opportunities to speak to people about their views on unconditional love.
It may come as no surprise that most people, like 99.9% of the people I spoke to thought it was an unattainable emotion, something you only see in a fairytale. I may have thought that at one time, I don’t know, but what I do know is that I do not believe that now, I do believe in unconditional love and have many examples of it.
Beginning and ending with the most obvious:a mothers love. How can anyone say it does not exist when there is Mothers Love to look to for proof? A mother can and will love her child through it all! ** I do realize there are some people who CHOOSE to not have that type of love for their children…..I am not referring to those people in this post. And I know that people will say that a parents love is conditional, but think about it……..we may have conditions, but most mothers continue to love regardless of whether the child meets the expectations or not. And a child’s love for the parent is the same……
OK, so yes, I believe in and seek Unconditional love! I feel a very deep spiritual connection to God when I seek out unconditional love! Anytime I start a conversation about it or listen to someone else talk about it, or I read about it…whatever, I always get a deeper spiritual feeling.
So this is where I was in my life at the moment that I heard Wayne Dyer talking about Divine Love and it was like a light bulb went off! That is why I always feel a deeper connection…it is not simply unconditional love that I seek it is Divine Love!
So what is the difference really?
For me…here is the difference:
Unconditional love is something that we try to have for others on a case by case, or relationship by relationship basis. It is beautiful when we can achieve it! But most people do not aspire to live their entire life walking around with Unconditional Love!
Divine Love is something we aspire to have for ALL mankind and ALL Gods creation at ALL times. 24/7. It is Divine love….love like God has……Divine!
For me it is that simple….is it that way for others? I really do not know. I’m pretty sure I will find out! 🙂
