Home as Unconditional Love

What is “home”?

Home is where one gives and receives unconditional love and support.

By this definition how many are “homeless” today?  Whether they have a roof over their heads or live on the street how many have such a “home”?

Unconditional love can never be asked for but it can be given.  It can never be taken but it can be received. It does not mean surrendering to those who may abuse or oppress you.  It means to ceaselessly love from a place of integrity that is in keeping with a deep respect and gratitude for nature, life and each other.

It is a mother nursing her baby, a loving couple and happy children playing.  It is warm food on the table.  It is the compassionate and courageous acts of those willing to risk their own lives to save another.  It is the endless gifts we give each other without asking for anything in return.  It is that feeling that anything is possible.  It is having infinite patience, calm and peace in the midst of confusion and uncertainty. It is being fully attentive and listening to each other without prejudice.  It is taking care of one’s own health, that we may always be there for others. It is being forever humbled and grateful to each other, to nature and to this infinite universe for the gift that is our life.

You can make your home anywhere by loving unconditionally. So let us all make this place, this Earth and this Universe our home.

    I completely agree.
    It is to give or receive freely from what we feel inside without need to pretend something in return.
    A heavenly state of the spirit so hard to practice and find today.

    no one could dispute the eloquent way you speak of unconditional love. as an addition on the subject, I would interject that only a child needs unconditional love, the kind that loves and accepts the child not for what they do, or how they act but for themselves as they are, independent of his deeds. with this love a child feels secure and then can grow up. but adults do not need unconditional love, this is a childhood need, one that can never be fulfilled later in life. when we look for it as adults we are playing with illusion and are still children emotionally. to know this is to find a truth and then we may hope for other things like respect,trust,empathy, understanding. can we really love an adult unconditionally? should we try? can we do that? for whose sake? interesting questions for mature adults.
