love, honor, accept, respect and approve of you as you are, as you seek to find
your own special way to relate to the world, or the way you feel that is right
for you. It is important that you are the person you choose and desire to be and
not someone that I or others think you should be.
I realize that I cannot know what is best for you though perhaps sometimes I think I do. I have not been where you have been, viewing life from the angle that you have. I do not know what you have chosen to learn, who you have chosen to learn it with or in what time period. I have not walked life looking through your eyes, so how can I know what you need?
I allow you to be in the world without a thought or word of judgment from me about the deeds you undertake. I see no error in the things you say and do, in this place where I am. I see that there are many ways to perceive and experience the different facets of our world. I allow, without reservation your right to make the choices you make in each moment.
I make no judgment of this, for if I were to deny you your right to evolution then I would deny that right to myself and all others. To those who would choose a way I cannot walk, whilst I may not choose to add my power and my energy to this way, I will never deny you the gift of Unconditional Love that the Creator bestowed within me for all creation, as I love you so I shall be loved, as I sow, so shall I reap.
I honor and respect the universal right of free will - that you walk your own path, following your love, light and truth, creating steps or sitting a while if that is what is right for you. I make no judgment of these steps, whether they are large or small, nor light or heavy or that they lead up or down, for this is just my viewpoint. While I [may perceive that I] see you do nothing and judge it to be unworthy I honor and respect that it may be that you bring great healing as you stand blessed by the light of the Creator.
I accept and honor that I cannot always see the higher picture of divine order and that it is the inalienable right of all Beings to choose their own evolution and with unconditional love I acknowledge your right to determine your future. In humility, I bow to the realization that the way I see is best for me but does not have to mean that it is also right for you. I know that you are led as I am, following the inner excitement of your own path.
I know that many races, religions, customs, nationalities and beliefs within our world bring us great richness and allow us the benefit of diverse teachings. I know we each learn in our own unique way in order to bring that love and wisdom back to the whole. I know that if there were only one way to do something, there would need to be only one person. I love you unconditionally whether or not you behave in a way I think you should, or believe in those things I believe in. I understand you are truly my brothers and sisters though you may have been born in a different place and believe in another way than I.
The unconditional love I feel is for all of the Creator's worlds and universes. I know that every living Being is part of the Creator and I feel unconditional love deep within me for every person, and all trees, and flowers, every bird, river and ocean - for all the creatures throughout the world. I live my life in loving service, being the best me I can, becoming wiser in the perfection of divine truth, becoming happier in the joy of unconditional love.
I love you unconditionally with no strings attached and no expectations just as you are Now. I thank you unconditionally for Being you and the many blessings your Being brings to me and my world.
