Does unconditional love really exist...? Yes it does, but not for everybody. Are you willing to die for someone? That would be the ultimate answer.
now, that's just nuts

Yes, there are some parents who have that kind of love for their offspring...
Don't get me wrong its a beautiful thing when parents love their children that much.
But unless they love themselves and everyone else that way too its conditional love. The condition is that of being their children.
Unconditional love and forgiveness do exist but as an altered state of consciousness. The knowledge of how it feels to experience unconditional love is state-specific knowledge.

I spent two weeks with a woman from Canada, in Canada, 26 years ago, and never spoke to her again except for an unreturned message on social media(I finally found her online 3 months ago!) I would quit my job right now, get my visa, crawl on my hands and knees through broken glass, just to hold her in my arms (clothes on even!) and tell her face to face just one more time how precious she still is to me.
Or maybe it's "unconditional guilt" on my part. Not sure.
if everything loved you unconditionally and you did not know this, then you will have lost unconditional love.
Unconditional love is something you can lose. You can not win it back. You can hope.
How can you loose something that is unconditional?
There are no conditions attached to it, so how could it be lost?
Are talking about the unconditional love in a relationship with another? if so, then even on the termination of that relationship then the unconditional love would still exist.
New International Version
If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn't do it, it is sin for them.
New Living Translation
Remember, it is sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it.
English Standard Version
So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.
New American Standard Bible
Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, to him it is sin.
King James Bible
Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

Life is unconditional love because life allows everything and everyone to be exactly as they are without any judgments. Humans may judge each other, even animals made get angry or happy depending on circumstances, but life just allows all things to be as they are. Not only allows it, but embraces it, since all of us is a part of it (life).
