    Non-attachment in love

    "Non-attachment does not mean apathy or inaction in a relationship; contrarily it means that the relationship is not a contingency on your happiness or life-path productivity."
    'Mindful' is not unattached, and certainly not unconditional. Unconditional love requires no mindfulness. It just is.
    Certainly it is not something to look toward to try to remove the aspects of a relationship that you may perceive to negatively impinge on you personally ("contingency on your happiness or life-path productivity."). By definition, that is selfishness.
    Thinking in such a way will provide a constant block since you are only thinking of you. See the point?

    "This means that the present moment is much more precious.  The by-product of this realization is a deeper appreciation for all that your love does to care for you.  It makes the mundane aspects of the relationship all the more meaningful by enlivening your awareness of right now.  You actually love more because you understand the shortness of life"
    Aren't you in a relationship with all, simultaneously already?
    The 'mundane' has no place here, nor does appreciation, how precious, or meaningfull things are. It is your whole being, and you do not 'realize' it. All such terms are pointless.

    No. You cannot love 'more' since unconditional means the same for all, and love in a relationship has no correlation with true unconditional love, and the two cannot be compared.

    "If you wish to know where you stand in the waters of mindful love, a good litmus test is within the areas of your person growth."
    The article is in confusion. Mindful vs unconditional (with a liberal sprinkling of self).
