LOVE means just that, loving unconditionally. It means that I have no
other thought in my mind and heart than to see all in my world through
the eyes of perfection and purity--seeing all in the reality I am.
During the 89th International New Thought
Alliance Congress in Washington DC in July I arrived with the topic
assigned to me of The Power of One and the title I gave it:
Unconditional Love Heals! Naturally with such a topic I had to walk
the talk. It was fun and easy.
Since I had no other thought in my mind and heart
than to see everyone at the congress whole and perfect, I went around
hugging and loving everyone, men, women and children--of all ages and all
descriptions. Some were not receptive to being hugged by a bearded man
and some were even upset by such an uncalled for gesture. However, I was
Thinking about this you might think I was not
undaunted but foolish to love and care about people who were seemingly
uninterested in being "LOVED" by such an apparently aged old man.
Quickly word went around that "Here comes the Love Bug."
Little by little word went around that everyone
whom he hugged felt much better and even some were "healed" of problems
that they were experiencing as they came to the congress. It became so
apparent that some even sought out this happy fellow who was such a
"good" hugger and who massaged your back in such a salubrious manner
that all feelings of hurt or misalignment faded from existence. He
seemed to shine forth the healing techniques of the ages including Ayurvedic teaching methods.
Whispers went throughout the congress that this
very happy person was doing something unusual. People came back to him
again and again to be hugged and touched with a very special caring such
as his friend Rev Samuel Sasu taught in his workshop class.
There were some who did not want to be hugged and
informed the Love Bug to "get off my back"--which he instantly did.
However, they missed the healing touch that could have been theirs at
that moment. Many of those came back later subtly seeking the hug they
refused before and naturally the Love Bug gave them the bug hug of
Living in a consciousness of unconditional love
is quite demanding. As I practice unconditional love I have no
opportunity to feel that anyone is "undeserving" of the hug and
attention just because they said they did not want it or they refused
the hug. To love unconditionally means that I love because that is MY
nature and not because there is a need for loving. I love because I am a
caring lover of all in my world wherever I may be.
As I give seminars around the world I run into
people who feel their philosophy of life is the only way to think about
life. They feel anyone else in the world either thinks their way or that
one is an infidel, inferior to the human race, not only the divine
However, such thoughts as these are never in the
thinking of one who loves unconditionally. For to love conditionally is
not loving unconditionally, naturally!
The teachings of the Tao, Koran, Confucius,
Jesus, Bible or any other teaching of any peoples on Earth teach first
and foremost, love the divine being uppermost and love its creation as
oneself. This is quite an expectation. It means we can have no feelings
of superiority either in our religious or philosophical life. It means
we respect all the world, all creation, equally. With such an awareness
peace reigns supreme. With such an awareness the divine nature in man as
man is revealed in every thought, action and word. What a glorious
As we teach ourselves to live unconditional love
we see the entire world good and very good, as it is originally created.
As we live unconditional love we just naturally hug everyone, everything
and all that is--we are so empowered in love that that is all that
During the congress many people came to me to ask
my opinion of speakers and conditions of the organization. They said if
anyone were to give them an "honest" answer it is the man who lives
unconditional love every moment of his life.
I talked with each one but the answer I gave to
them probably surprised them since I did not give them an answer based
on a judgment but rather an observation of an unconditionally loving
being. I said, yes the individual was looking for approval and love from
the group; however, that one is looking outwardly for the magnificence
he is within. That person is a superior leader, a divine manifestation
of purity and goodness and the moment he recognizes it in himself he
will not seek it outwardly revealing it from within.
Questions were asked about the organization to
which I replied that the technique of the organization and its purpose
is to serve the greater good--and it is doing just that at the level of
those who are organizing it. As we desire to see its ultimate purpose
expressed we simply say: All is in divine order now. We get our bloated
nothingness out of the way of the divine circuits. As we do this the
primary supreme ultimate purpose of the group shines forth as a diamond
released of the dust on its surface so its inner fire may brilliantly
illumine it and its world.
Being a love bug demands selfconfidence,
selfdiscipline, selfawareness and selfdetermination to at all times to
stand up for principle. It cannot be an excuse for being uninhibited but
rather a calling for being unconditionally loving.
I teach the thousands of children and adults I
greet in Africa, Europe and the world to love themselves—more to LIKE
THEMSELVES. For we all love ourselves universally, but to be able to
like ourselves and live with who and what we are--is indeed another
thing. By my demonstration of unconditional love to each of these
thousands of youngsters, their teachers, their elders and their world, I
show them "how" it can be done and how easy it is.
I teach them songs that touch their inner nature
I am god, god I am . . .
I like me, I like me, I like
me . . . to any familiar tune.
I bless Nigeria, (for every
country we visit) land that I love, I stand beside her and guide her
through the night with the light from within; from the mountains, to the
deserts, to the ocean filled with foam, I bless Nigeria my home sweet
home, I bless Nigeria, my home sweet home.
These songs teach children and adults alike that
with unconditional love all dreams are possible. All dreams already
exist and wait our call to reveal them.
As I was privileged to give my presentation to
the congress I shared with them three illustrations and sang to them
these songs which I share throughout the world.
I began my sharing by saying the New Thought
Movement began as the first inhabitants of planet Earth moved from being
individuals to being a family. Primitive man changed from thinking of
himself as the only creation in existence to coming up with a new
thought that HE had created OTHERS. The others he created wanted to live
as he lived and wanted to be independent in their thinking and
expectations of life--but it did not work out that way for to live in a
community his creation had to flow harmoniously with the creator. He had
to think new thoughts. He had to think of his creation AND himself!
The first new thought thinkers were the shaman
who listened within to their divine selves and revealed to the community
their wisdom from within. Their universal nature made people fearful of
their abilities, even as they are today of the wizards and wise ones of
culture. Now aeons later the sage--shaman, wizard and wise one--present to
us the allness and we think it is mind-blowing.
The Shaman--new thought thinkers--drew a circle of
love and within it included all philosophies, religions and thinkers of
From that humble beginning new thought was born
and out of it came a bonding of these creative new thinkers that called
them the International New Thought Alliance. Some-thing that is truly
bigger than the sum of all of its parts. I am privileged to share with
this group my unconditional love, my love bug nature, my allness.
I am unconditional love and I share that
love with all of my creation, all my world, all my universe, all the
isness that IS!
