Isn’t it interesting that only those who are truly loving because they are centered in their hearts know that the philosophy of “unconditional love”, which may seem like the “highest love” to some, is bunk. If the philosophy of “unconditional love” is a lie because it is not of the heart, where does this philosophy come from? Where is it centered? It could only be generated from a mind separated from the heart. Considering that the philosophy of “unconditional love” does not include the discernment of the heart, we can see that it is a mechanical philosophy – a concept derived from mechanical thought processes devoid of real divine love.
Divine love, which includes discernment, is a living dynamic expression of the heart, not a closed concept subject to definite parameters of behavior designed to perpetuate discordant, ungodly conditions. Where is the fiery defense of life in “unconditional love”? Where is the fierce protection of the beloved? Where is the stalwart encouragement to be more? If all are accepted and loved with their ungodly behavior intact and unchallenged, where is the nurturing of what is real? Where is the victory of overcoming?
It seems clear that in order to practice “unconditional love”, we have to shut off our heart. Therefore, “unconditional love” is actually a mental concept, a mechanical philosophy that has nothing to do with true love. It is not an honest concept; it is not truth, and therefore it is a lie.
It might help us to consider how God loves us in the midst of our ungodly conditions on earth – personal conditions as well as world conditions. Our personal ungodly conditions are all of our negative beliefs and attitudes, all that takes us away from accepting who we are in God, and all that makes us act out in ungodly ways – all that blocks us from being more. Of course God does not love our ungodly acts and behaviors, but God does love us, no matter our attitude or behavior. So God looks past the behavior and loves the child that is His own. This doesn’t mean that God ignores the behavior or that the fact that God loves us despite our behavior makes it okay to act in any way we choose without consequence.
"If ye love me, keep my commandments." (John 14:15)
Clearly one consequence of ungodly behavior is our lost connection with God, for although God never stops loving us, we cannot feel it or accept it, nor can we return that love, when we are in an ungodly state. The prize and the goal is always to accept at higher and higher levels that we are God and to express that in our world. This is more. We each have a God (“I AM”) Presence individualized for us. We can envision our I AM Presence as a blazing, golden sun shining over us, guiding us and blessing us. And we are meant to be like sunflowers, devoted to and turning our face always to the sun, receiving our nurturance from it.
Yet at some point, when we have grown spiritually, we will unite with the sun (our I AM Presence) and be one with it. So it is as if the I AM Presence gradually becomes closer and closer to us until it merges with us, by us drawing closer and closer to it and identifying more completely with it until it blazes within our own spiritual heart and God is then literally acting and speaking through us with no blockages – no blockages of doubt, of fear, of anger, or any other negative emotion, belief or attitude. We are God and we know it.
“Unconditional love” covers over the truth like a sticky, smothering blanket of sickeningly sweet syrup. The “syrup” is a lie – the lie that we can do whatever we want without consequence. The truth that is blanketed over with this “syrup” is that there are always consequences to our actions and choices. If the choice be for God-good, the consequence will be a blessing from God (more). Yet if the choice is made against God or our God identity, then the consequence is a loss of God, or a moving away - an estrangement from God (less). How could it be any different? We cannot make ungodly choices and expect to remain connected to the real God. If we are not connected to God, then we cannot feel God’s love, nor can we know who we are in God.
Just as sticky syrup made from refined processed sugar is unhealthy for our physical body, robbing us of energy and nutrients instead of giving us anything but an appearance of nurturance and causing an unhealthy imbalance in our blood sugar, the philosophy of “unconditional love” is a spiritual “refined and processed sugar” that robs us of our spiritual energy and the receiving of the nurturance of our Father Mother God. True God Love is not sticky, nor is it extremely sweet, throwing us out of balance. God Love flows in balance with God Power through God Wisdom, and the base of all of these God qualities is God Purity. Love does not stand on its own – no God quality does.
