How to Change Your Life with Unconditional Love (1 of 2 )

How to Manifest your Destiny by Wayne Dyer (Chap 6)

Connecting to the Divine Source with Unconditional Love

There is no greater power in heaven or on earth than pure,

unconditional love.  This is the heart of the sixth principle of


The nature of the God force, that unseen intelligence in all things,

which causes the material world and is the center of both the

spiritual and physical plane, is best described as pure,

unconditional love.  It is the glue that holds all things material in

place and keeps them from collapsing into uncountable particles.

This God force is the oversoul to which we are always connected

because we are localized extensions of that force.

You may feel infinitely worthy of attracting to yourself material and

spiritual prosperity, but if you are not living the way of

unconditional love you are interfering with your ability to manifest

in your life.  In order to be divinely aligned with this universal

infinite energy, you must become unconditional love.

Though it seems easy and even appropriate to announce, "I practice

unconditional love," it is far from a reality for most of us on this

physical plane.  Unconditional love has eluded most of us, largely

because we tend to identify it as affection or sentiment.

The energy of love dissolves limitations

When I speak of love emanating from your soul and from the divine

consciousness of God, I speak of something that the lower self or the

ego cannot grasp.  I am not speaking about "feeling good" toward

others, romantic love, showering everyone with affection or

"touchy-feely" behavior.  This unconditional love that I write of

here is an experience of the harmony of life.  It is simply too deep

and too profound for our ordinary selves to activate.

This energy of unconditional love is the power behind creation.  It

guides all of our natural laws.  This love can be imagined as a

vibration that carries thought forms from one's mind into material

expression.  In its highest nature, love is the force that we

recognize as the will of God.  It is the alchemy that we embrace to

make sense of how things are materialized from the world of spirit.

These are strong words, which are essential for you to know if you

are to make the transition from one who takes what life presents to

one who becomes a co-creator with the universal energy of

unconditional love.

I suggest you embark on an experiment in which you practice only

unconditional love for several days, perhaps even a week.  Make this

a private activity, but vow to yourself that you will only allow

unconditional loving thoughts to emanate from your consciousness.

Make an intense proclamation to live unconditional love for a

designated period of time.

 During this time refuse to have judgmental or critical thoughts.  In

your quiet time think only peace and love.  In all of your

relationships think and act in only loving ways.  Extend loving

thoughts and energy wherever and whenever you encounter anyone or

anything.  Become unconditional love for this period of time.

This practice of becoming unconditional love is a prerequisite to the

manifesting process.  By pouring love into your immediate environment

and practicing gentleness in all of your thoughts, words and actions,

your immediate circle of friends will begin responding in a whole new

way.  Furthermore, this act becomes expansive very quickly and you

can radiate this love to your community and to people you read about

in newspapers, including those who are labeled terrorists, murderers,

scam artists and the like.

You emphasize the "un" in unconditional love.  You become detached

and loving toward all.  You are not loving the hostile act, but you

are loving the spirit that is blocked in those who are harmful and

unloving.  When you can live this way and reject all thoughts and

actions that are not of an unconditionally loving nature, you will

experience the essence of your spirit and know how to overcome

limitations in your life.

This is a task that your conditioning will not easily encourage.  But

for a few days you can persevere just so you know what the divine

universal spirit is like.  It judges no one and no thing, it does not

moralize, it does not show favoritism, it merely exists as

unconditional love, radiating harmony and allowing everything and

everyone to unfold.  Each day millions of flowers open then close

without any force, only with the all-flowing unconditional love that

is the heart of universal, infinite and eternal energy.  With this

exercise you are cultivating that aspect of yourself.

As you practice being unconditional love, contemplate and meditate on

the sacred unconditional love that is the heart of yourself also.

Imagine an atom of unconditional love that is at the very center of

your existence.  Feel this presence in your heart and feel it opening

and radiating outward.  Soon this impersonal feeling that is not

dependent on anyone or anything, or any belief system, will radiate

to a feeling of being connected to the infinite energy of

unconditional love that is God.

With this transformation you are on the path of manifestation.  You

will connect by ridding yourself of all judgment, anger, moralizing,

preaching, hate, rancor and all of the other various tools of the ego.

What can you expect as you practice a few days of being total,

unconditional love?  If all of your meditations are devoted to love,

and if you pour love into every single situation and every single

person you meet, and beyond that to everyone on the planet and to the

infinity of the universe, you will feel yourself becoming a different

person.  You will sleep more soundly.  You will feel at peace

virtually all of the time.  Your relationships will be more deeply

spiritual.  Most significantly, you will begin recognizing the

"coincidences" of your life with greater regularity.  Your thought

forms of unconditional love will begin to produce what you desire

without your even being aware of how it is happening.  Your dreams

will be more intense, and the vision of your purpose will become


I am suggesting that you can love more, and unconditionally, without

expecting anything in return; as a result, the limitations that you

experience will disappear.  Try it before you reject it.  There is an

oft-quoted piece from the New Testament that seems appropriate to

insert here.  For me, it is one of the most profound passages ever

written.  It is reproduced here from Corinthians 13, on "Love".

And now I will show you the most excellent way.

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I

am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.  If I have the gift

of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I

have faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.

If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the

flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient, love is kind.  It does not envy, it does not boast,

it is not proud.  It is not rude, it is not self seeking, it is not

easily angered, it keeps no record of wrong.  Love does not delight

in evil bt rejoices with the truth.  It always protests, always

trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails.  But where there are prophecies they will cease,

where there are tongues they will be stilled, where there is

knowledge, it will pass away.  For we know in part and we prophesy in

part.  But when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears.  When I

was a child, I talked like a child.  I thought like a child.  I

reasoned like a child.  When I became a man, I put childish ways

behind me.  Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror, then we

shall see face to face.  Now I know in part, then I shall know fully,

even as I am fully known.

And now these three remain; faith, hope and love.

But the greatest of these is love.

Yes, the greatest of these is love.  It will make the imperfect

disappear, and it will allow you to move into that spiritually

fulfilling world of co-creating your life based on the model of

unconditional love.

I am well aware of the improbability of living an unconditionally

loving life in all of our moments.  I imagine your ego is protesting

that this idea is absurd because yu are only human and humans have

shortcomings.  Nevertheless, I ask you to do this exercise for a few

days or a week.  You see, I know that it will become habitual when

you feel the richness of your life with this new awareness.

Unconditional love is the ultimate mystery of life.  It may appear

simple, but it is so powerful that it will shake you free of your ego

domination if you give it even a short tryout in your life.  Until we

learn to transcend the ego we continue to contribute tot he insanity

that we witness in the world.  Detaching and becoming an

unconditionally loving observer is the way to cultivate a healthy,

balanced relationship between ego and spirit.

The process of detached observation

One of the great meditation exercises that I learned many years ago

involves imagining lifting yourself out of your body and floating

into space so far that you are actually observing the entire planet.

If you do this, try to imagine what the earth is like without you on

it.  It is a very difficult task for your ego to even contemplate the

world without you in it.  Next, begin to observe the planet without

any judgment, refusing to label anything as good or bad, right or

wrong.  Simply instruct yourself to notice, allow and send

unconditional love.  You probably will find it easier to send out

unconditional love when you are not there to interfere.  That is, you

can love unconditionally when your ego is out of the way.  This is a

technique that will help you to project unconditional love.

If all you are is a being of unconditional love, you are not involved

in ego concerns.  When you operate from this perspective you are

practicing detachment in a state of gentleness, which makes you a

compassionate witness toward everyone and everything you come into

contact with.  It is magical to be able to extend this kind of

consciousness beyond your form.  This is the resolution of that great

mystery of how to connect to and know God.  That is, not to know

about God, but to know God.

The process of being a detached observer occurs in the silence of

your contemplations or meditations.  Begin by seeking out time to be

quiet and enter this inner place of love.  It is in that silence that

you will come to truly know this divine energy of unconditional love.

Most people in the western world have a great deal of difficulty with

any prolonged periods of silence.  They fill those moments with

music, conversation, radio and television and anything else they can

use to avoid the silence.  Our culture is a noisy culture.

When I attempt to meditate and just observe the silence, I deal with

vacuums, power mowers, tree trimmers, portable leaf blowers, edgers

and the many machines that move earth and sand, bulldoze, clean and

on and on.  All of these noise machines have power sources that

pollute the world with loud noise.  It takes practice to learn to

transcend this by going within and screening out the noise pollution.

The noisy world will still filter into quiet time unless you can get

far enough into nature to avoid it.

Our preoccupation with noise satisfies the ego's need to escape the

serenity and unconditional love of the divine intelligence that is

God.  But you can become a detached observer if you make the choice

to simply remove your ego from the story line and allow your higher

self to take over. Become an unconditionally loving observer rather

than an ego-involved participant.

Let go of your inclination to judge and moralize and take personally

what you notice.  Simply become the noticer.  You are then aligning

yourself with God, allowing all to bask in his loving blessing

instead of the ego frantically insisting that there is a superior

way.  Being godly means expressing the love that is within you.  It

is much more than simply being close to it.  You must be it in

oneness with the universal being of God.

What it means to be in oneness

What has come to be referred to as "the will of God" is an invention

of man to gain control over others.  If you are convinced that there

is a God's will that is separate from you, then those who claim they

know God's will can dominate and control you.  If you adopt this

belief system, then you fall into the trap of "his will versus my

will."  You want to do certain things, but the "will of God" dictates


Unconditional love and becoming a co-creator in your life is possible

when you know that God is not separate from you.  You and God are one

and the same.  In the New Testament Jesus says to the multitudes, ".

. . I have said ye are Gods," and later, "When a man believes in me,

he does not believe in me only, but in the one who sent me.  When he

looks at me he sees the one who sent me."  (John, 10:34; 12:44).

What it means to be in a state of oneness is that you know the

unconditional love that God has for all of creation is also the

unconditional love that can be you, if you make that choice.  Your

free will is your freedom to embrace any thought that you desire.

This free will is your gift from God. Use this free will in a spirit

of love that has no conditions imposed on it.

The love that God has for you is without condition.  There is no

restriction or censorship placed on this love granted to you by the

divine creator.  You have complete freedom to do as you will, for

your will and God's will are one and the same.  You have the freedom

to choose your thoughts within this grand scheme of unconditional


If it is the same as God's love for you, then you are living

unconditional oneness.  If you place restrictions on that love, or

withhold it dependent on your judgments and hatreds, then you make it

a conditional love and remove yourself from the possibility of

co-creating with God.  You are in conflict with the divine essence

that is God.  This conflicted state is nothing more than the

imposition of conditions on your ability to love.

Use this love for the purpose of co-creation.  Every moment that you

create by radiating unconditionally loving thoughts is a reflection

of the same love that was responsible for your creation.  Creating

(or manifesting) is the act of bringing unconditional love from

within your being into a  form that we call the world of the

concrete.  In this sense, then, unconditional love can be thought of

as the power to participate in the act of co-creation.

Unconditional love as power
