I wonder why that is
Hmm, seems a rather emotional reaction, no ? Are you 'irritated' because I ignored your post and its high valued opinions ? Is this your personal application of 'unconditional love' ?
Have you noticed maybe that I did not answer your post directly, but a comment made by RachMiel on your post ?
hmmm....wonder where that came from?....remember....what you point out in another is merely what you think yourself. Aka....Byron Katie which you like to quote a lot.
The fact that you would even imply that makes me think, that when you fear, you like to deflect questions back to the other poster as a defense mechanism. Of course, I can't know this for sure, but from reading your posts, it sure seems that way as you do this very often instead of answering the question at hand.
I've absolutely gotten frustrated with your posts in the past, and admitted as such to you at the time, but this time, my response was 100 percent completely observatory. Now, however, after reading this very latest post of yours right here, you've most certainly got a more emotional reaction of me. Then again, it seems your own response was filled with emotion as well. Isn't that beautiful how we both can see this?
It was so blatant how you chose to ignore the main focus of the post (regardless of whether it was my post or someone else's) to focus on one word 'love' instead of what that love was pointing to as almost a mechanism to deflect unconditional love.
So, let's get back to the question I asked initially. Why do you fear the term 'love' Phil? What is it that love points to that scares you? I'd love to know and I ask those only from my own place of love. You can choose not to answer of course.
Actually, let me change that....what is about what 'unconditional love' actually points to, whether it was what I wrote in my post previously, or what you believe that unconditional love actually is, that scares you about it? Forget the terminology here and let's just talk about unconditional love itself. This is not a personal debate. This never was. Only in your mind, seemingly out of fear, have you turned it into one. Let's stick to the subject at hand.
