Agape or Uncondtional Love

He shines on the sun.
Lets the rain to fall on all.
Good or bad. Do we?


Unconditional love or agape is difficult to have especially towards persons that have committed hideous deeds. This kind of love does not suggest condoning the act.  It is best elaborated in this wonderful link from Sacred Space. The metaphor used in this haiku is a paraphrased form of a sentence that is found in this beautifully well written essay.  I hope you will find time to read it to ponder on what is written or just revel on the beauty of the prose.

But how does one have this type of love? I posted a reflection on forgiveness in this blog when I was challenged to have this type of love during an incident that happened to me.
