The Love Foundation is a global nonprofit organization with the mission of inspiring people to love unconditionally. Our vision is to assist people by building a practical foundation and understanding of unconditional love within individuals and society as a whole.
Our intention is to explore a variety of creative activities and presentations that enhance unity and self-conscious expression while promoting love and respect to all aspects of life.
Provide main web site sharing principles of unconditional love, along with other educational materials and resources helping people understand love and its application (e.g. developing written material, audio, video, and other media with the focus on celebrating life through love); Create and host a variety of programs that inspire and engage people to interact and share love locally (e.g. Global Love Day, cultural and creative activities, and using social sites to encourage interaction and sharing from diverse cultures); Present public service announcements promoting unconditional love, tolerance, unity, etc. (e.g. group collaborations, billboard campaign expressing loving thoughts, and blog messages); Present seminars, workshops, meditations and presentations to groups sharing practical ideas and concepts (e.g. speaking at schools and universities about self esteem).
Explore and conduct research regarding the the history, impact and scientific benefit of unconditional love (e.g. study for biophysical responses to love); Support new inventions and projects that benefit humanity and the earth (e.g. projects for alternative energy sources); Develop a database and library of information and reference materials available to all (e.g. acquire and catalog books, digital material, and other media on love).
Develop community programs that foster peace, love, and self awareness as expressions and that encourage positive action (e.g. earth day events); Initiate children’s programs that enhance self esteem and confidence (e.g. develop workshop program for day care centers or youth clubs); Work with groups and individuals that promote human development and personal and planetary growth (e.g. love-based charities).
Our programs further the awareness and application of unconditional love through education, research, and charity.
We Celebrate our Humanity
As we continue to connect with people and organizations around the world, we are amazed at how much is being done in efforts to positively assist humanity. There are so many wonderful people and associations that are actively working on behalf of a community, nation and even in global proportions.
As we often remind ourselves, what is presented by mainstream information sources is often a narrow and negative perspective of what is happening upon this planet right now. To the contrary, we see and know that good and right is occurring everywhere. Look for love and you will see it all around you.
This simple reminder changes the very nature of our experience. We are what we place our attention upon. When we allow love to be our focus of life, we expand this in our everyday activities. It is as simple as changing each perspective and allowing the negative and limiting views to be released and replaced by a higher, more loving understanding.
We appreciate and are grateful for the courage each of you express. In a world that has historically revered the negative and fear-based aspects, it takes strength to be and share love. It is time for love to become our common vision.
Please join us. Be a part of this global day by choosing love, compassion, peace, and unity. Share this information with your friends, relatives and coworkers. Love locally and spread it globally.
Defining Unconditional Love
Back in the early 1990’s, TLF Founder, Harold W. Becker, developed a rather unique, and perhaps unconventional, contemporary definition for unconditional love and shared it in his first book, Internal Power – Seven Doorways to Self Discovery. Ever seeking a practical and universal definition, he chose to understand and evolve each of the two words “unconditional” and “love” to their core essence of meaning. Then combining them into one idea he realized a useful insight for applying this profound perspective found in this unique combination of two words. Harold’s definition simply stated – “unconditional love is an unlimited way of being“.
This definition doesn’t necessarily speak to the typical expected response or popular collective understanding of most cultures. Instead it reveals something more important – the individual potential that resides within each of us every moment. It merely asks that we approach each moment with clarity and right perspective and recognize the vast unlimited possibilities to choose a new way of thinking and feeling.
Such a sense of profound love comes when we first forgive and accept ourselves for all our limiting beliefs, mistakes, judgments and misunderstandings and apply the “unconditional” to us personally. We recognize our self worth, value our talents, and allow ourselves to be who we are rather than what we think others wish us to be. In turn, we naturally understand those around us and extend our helping hand without condition, judgment or expectation. We see ourselves in the reflection of another and know that everyone deserves to love and be loved without condition.
By embracing the present moment with openness we realize and know we have the solutions and answers already within us. We begin building a reality that is based on love, wisdom and power in perfect balance. For each step we take personally, we impact the world with this amazing energy of love.
Unconditional love turns hope into knowing in a collective reality that is often seen as hopeless or seemingly impossible to overcome. When you know something is possible you empower this to manifest with your very being. So know from now on that you are loved and loving and see how the world responds to your light and knowing. Watch how your peace and strength is sought out by others and how the limitless love you have to share is the love you receive in return.
