  • 1. Unconditional Love A Story To Ponder On
  • 2. There was a soldier who was finally coming home after having fought in the Vietnam War. He called his parents from San Francisco.
  • 3. Mom and Dad, I'm coming home, but I've a favor to ask. I have a friend I'd like to bring home with me.
  • 4. "Sure," they replied, "we'd love to meet him."
  • 5. "There's something you should know,” the son continued, "he was hurt pretty badly in the fighting.”
  • 6. “ He stepped on a land mine and lost an arm and a leg. He has nowhere else to go, and I want him to come live with us."
  • 7. “ We are sorry to hear that, son. Maybe we can help him find somewhere to live,” both the parents said.
  • 8. "No, Mom and Dad, I want him to live with us." "Son, you don't know what you're asking.”
  • 9. “ Someone with such a handicap would be a terrible burden on us. We have our own lives to live, and we can't let something like this interfere with our lives,” the father continued.
  • 10. “ I think you should just come home and forget about this guy. He'll find a way to live on his own,“ the mother said.
  • 11. At that point, the son hung up the phone. The parents heard nothing more from him.
  • 12. A few days later, however, the parents received a call from the San Francisco police.
  • 13. The police told the parents that their son had died after falling from a high rise building. The police believed it was suicide.
  • 14. The grief-stricken parents flew to San Francisco and were taken to the city morgue to identify the body of their son.
  • 15. They recognized him, but to their horror they also discovered something they didn't know - their son had only one arm and one leg.
  • 16. How much of our love is conditional? We find it easy to love those who are good-looking or fun to have around, but we don't like people who inconvenience us or who do not do what we want.
  • 17. Unconditional Love is pure love with no strings attached …it is patient, kind and always positive.
  • 18. METTA is the true and pure unconditional love. METTA = Loving-Kindness + Goodwill + Friendliness + Love + Benevolence
  • 19. Meditation On Loving-Kindness To develop Unconditional Love, practise Metta Bhavana Click Meditation on Loving-Kindness
  • 20. The End May our Hearts be filled with boundless Loving-Kindness With Metta, Bro. Oh Teik Bin
