Unconditional love can be defined simply as love without any conditions or limitations. This type of love can come to us in many forms: through a wonderful soul-mate relationship, from our family and friends, and even from our small furry friends . . . our pets! In fact, I think the easiest way to understand unconditional love is to consider love from our pet’s perspective.
You may not know this, but The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho is one of my all-time favorite books! If you haven’t yet read this wonderful story, it’s about a young man from Spain who goes on an amazing journey seeking his Personal Legend, or his destiny. Along the way, he meets an Alchemist who teaches him the art of transformation. As you may recall, an Alchemist is a wizard who transforms base metals into gold.
