If at any point in your life you’ve ever experienced unconditional love from anyone, you’re probably going to pull through this. Even if you have to endure some pretty brutal shit. I believe when someone loves you unconditionally they deposit within you an endless spring that continues to water you for the rest of your life even when you don’t realize it. Even if you didn’t realize you were being unconditionally loved when it happened.
I think this is the way the Hebrew prophet Isaiah felt about his deity: “For as the earth brings forth its shoots, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to spring up, so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring up before all the nations.” (Isaiah 61.11)
For all their faults, deities seem to be ace at getting people to feel unconditionally loved.
I believe that’s because unconditional love is our way of unleashing divinity on each other.
See here for more about what Isaiah and some other ancient Jews thought about what happens to people who get loved unconditionally.

So profound. I will save this to read again and again.
