Love is the creative force in which the very nature of all things were born, therefore love simple is.
00:00:53 Charlotte: Unconditional love not unlike nature, simply is. It can't be denied or defied because it is. Unconditional love is elemental. Unconditional love is the impetus behind all of creation. Creation is the pouring forth of things. Creation is evolution, creation is open. It builds on itself, it breeds on itself. Creation is light, it's expansive, it's excitable, it's evolutionary. Creation gives birth, it's fertile. Creation, it doesn't take, creation gives. Creation doesn't destruct, it constructs. Creation is love. When you think of unconditional love, unconditional love is an energy, an essence, an elemental as I said, a transmission that does not have any restraints. Doesn't have any resistance. It doesn't have any blockages. It doesn't have any opposition, it just flows. It flows and it never puts on the brakes.
00:02:17 Charlotte: Unconditional love is a totality. It is not subject to change. It just flows out and continues to flow and continues to flow, and it builds on itself and it builds on itself and it builds on itself. And it is eternal. Now for us, as a human being with a human condition. Unconditional love is, it's difficult. It's difficult for us to truly live into the experiential relationship of unconditional love for another being because most of the time we're struggling to experience unconditional love towards ourself and as with most things in life. The irony is that, that unconditional love for ourself is already there. It already exists. It's not something that's out there that we need to learn how to do, to grasp, and grab, and bring in to ourselves, it already is.
00:03:28 Charlotte: Unconditional love is within us because it is what created us. This world, everything of nature, everything that was created organically was made by unconditional love. And so the aspiration is to not learn how, out here. It's better directed toward coming inward, coming inward and continuing as a mindful practice, as an interactive experience with healing, to peel back the layers of falsehood, to peel back the layers of self judgment, to peel back the layers of shame. All of those layers that have, by want of a better word, taken out the... I say taken out. It's almost like a shadow cast upon a light. And that unconditional love within sits at the very seat of our soul. It's at the pith of ourselves and we have the opportunity to return to that state through our relationships.
00:04:58 Charlotte: By being in relationships with others that have their human condition of which we often are critical of, we get frustrated with and judge. We have the opportunity in those relationships to look at those things that annoy us or frustrate us, those conditions per se that we have on that other person, in order for us to have our love free flow and do some deeper discovery as to, what is it about that person whom we love. And the frustration I feel about them, that is really more related to myself. What is it in me that I'm not okay with? What is it in me that by being around that person mirrors something that I need to get intimate with? That I need and want to absolve, resolve. I want to bring a healing element, compassion, patience, more kindness and tenderness too.
00:06:15 Charlotte: So that in of itself, that self reflective internal journey and application of healing, dissolves the layers over time so that we can be closer and closer to our true self whereby our unique gifts, the gifts that only we were given as a unique individual can be accessed and we can start to live more into contribution and flow. And that's why we're here. The ultimate purpose of being here, is to align ourselves with that unconditional love of self and share that with others. And that is synonymous to being in life, in relationship with the highest vibration of creativity. And unconditional love is not a fallacy or some kind of romantic nonsense that we should just forget about and give up on because it's unattainable. It's again like everything, it's a practice, it's an art and it sits and resides at the very heart of who we are. So let's return to that.
