I was just reading the comments on someone's topic of "How can we be unconditional love and still practice boundaries?" To say that these two cancel each other out?
As I always do... I go inside of me first and this is what I wrote:
Unconditional love is FOR me. Not for anyone else. However, the fruit or result that comes from watering my own tree with unconditional love, offers a proverbial "green leafy canopy" of shade that anyone can come and sit under to find some rest for their soul.
My most recent post mentioning "unconditional love" inspired me to look up a Bible verse from Jeremiah 17:7-8.
Furthermore, while going out to fetch some wood for the firebox, a phrase dropped in on me referencing "the tree whose leaves are always green".
"But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in Him. He is like a tree planted by the waters that sends out its roots toward the stream. It does not fear when the heat comes, and its leaves are always green. It does not worry in a year of drought, nor does it cease to produce fruit."
Now, most people may not be experiencing this in the same way I was and am now.
The use of the word "LORD" and "Him" in those verses did not actually produce the fruit promised in that passage. I tried extending my roots "outwardly" to the LORD, but that only seemed to effect my "left brain" and water the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. I withered and had no leaves growing for all of my Christian lifetime.
However, once I exchange the word LORD for I AM and "Him" for Self, my roots tapped into my INNER waters hidden away beneath my Soul, and I allowed myself to soak up love and trust for MY Self... my Soul came alive and my tree started to blossom and turn green.
I became my own 'Source' of water and life (by identifying as Source Consciousness)... and the natural outcome of this is "It does not worry in a year of drought, nor does it cease to produce fruit"... because when you know yourself to be the Source, your supply is not controlled or affected.
This is as easy as 'imagination'... or what we call Spirit (unseen reality).
So let me try and demonstrate how this little nuance in imagination and position changes the dynamic.
If we imagine ourselves to be connected to Source via the analogy of a garden hose (the commonly accepted and practised Christian definition for 'relationship with God')... there are 50 feet of hose extending OUTWARD that are subject to having your flow stopped by circumstances. For example metaphorically, a car could park on it and stop the supply (via "loss" experienced to varying proportions).
But when you realize that at the highest dimension of consciousness (let's use the example of the Big Bang level), that you ARE the Source no matter how many pieces of exploded particles exist... the original Consciousness is intact in every piece. This consciousness is not subject to time and space (circumstances), meaning no car can park on it and dry up your supply. If you can imagine it, it becomes reality. "All things are possible to him who believes (entrust, credit) or can imagine it".
