Unconditional Love

Realize that everyone, no matter what creed, color, or situation deserves love. As humans we all want to be happy and feel loved. We should want this not only for ourselves but for others as well. 2 Think of love as an action, not a feeling. A feeling is something we get from someone, and when we stop getting it, we often change our behavior somehow. If we have to do something, or be a certain way, in order to receive love, that love is conditional. Instead, if you start thinking of love as the behavior itself, the reward becomes the feeling you get when you act a certain way, not when someone else acts a certain way. And you can continue acting this way all the time, regardless of how other people behave–it becomes an act of generosity.

I cling to them, but like everything, they fade. I have lived for these moments. They pull me back to the present, and I realize that everything is exactly the way it was meant to be.”

Attempting to get up for the first time.   “Say Whaaaat?” These are all Asian Elephants.  Asian Elephants are on the endangered species list.  Please don’t ever go to a circus that uses elephants as part of their act. Facts: Elephants can recongnize each other from the sound of their calls. Elephants engage in greeting ceremonies when a friend who has been away for some time returns to the group. A full grown elephant can weight 10,000 pounds and poop 80 pounds in a day! If a baby elephant grumbles all of the elephants will go over and touch and caress him to soothe him. Elephants are plant eaters. Elephants cry and play and mourn. Elephants need to be with their mom the first 4 years of their life.   Many babies stay with their moms until adolescence and females may stay with their mom their whole life. If a baby elephant is taken …
