The kind of love that has no price-tag on it. Very appropriate reminder for me in the first paragraph in the twelve and twelve, twelfth step. Without conditions, that is love. Without regard to personal gain. People are often overwhelmed by generosity, and those who give without conditions are often overwhelmed when it happens to them.
A simple hello, a handshake, taking account of another person's presence, and being present in the moment will make all the difference. Sometimes we can get bogged down and worry about what is the right thing to do. And in those agonising moments of trying to work out what is right, that moment has passed completely. Kindness and a loving outlook comes with time and confidence. There will be many a cold shoulder in life, worry not, we are not everybody's cup of tea.
When we are uncertain how to help another human being, we really don't need to work it out, why not ask them what we can do and then see if we can or not in the moment of now. And very often, the simple answer is that we are not the right person in that moment, somebody else is the right person and if they are about, why not ask them to help instead?
