How nice it would be if one could just pick up a bottle like this at the store, as easily as picking up a bottle of cough syrup. I wonder...if one really could get this in a bottle at the store, how much would it cost? Would fewer people be walking around in pain and loneliness if something like this were made so easily available?
In real life, when I have really received unconditional love, it has been free. It hasn't come from all people I have encountered, but the people it has come from, have been enough.
Do I give unconditional love myself? Sometimes.
Do I want unconditional love? Yes.
I don't know why I don't always give that which I want for myself. Sometimes I do, but often, I don't. My mode of operation is to avoid and lay low from people out of fear of getting hurt or taken advantage of. Sometimes I am so tired I can't give a single thing, not even the smallest thing, to anyone.
I have a small but intimate group of friends. I also have many, many people in recovery who feel like family to me, even if they are not in the close circle of people I can always turn to in times of need.
I also have the unconditional love of the universe. And when I can, I love the universe back.
I wish I had more time to take to think of a loving way to wrap this up today. As it is, I am getting a quick post in from my desk at work.
There is a brand of cosmetics by the name of Philosophy. That line of cosmetics has some kind of skin serum or moisturizing cream called "Hope in a Jar." I believe that this line of makeup and skin care products, is quite pricey as are so many other cosmetics brands.
I would rather think of the love that is available, given when it can be...for free.
