We are taught in school about sex and precautions, but what of the person we are interacting with? What about the relationship with that person? If you knew what was REALLY going on in relationships, so you could change your perspective and save a whole lot of heartache and pain, wouldn’t that just be great or perhaps a relief or totally amazing?
What the honeymoon stage is really all about…..
To love, is human nature and yet love seems to cause so much pain. What a paradox! It’s what we seek and are programmed to do and yet with all the songs and movies since time began, depicting the perfect ending full of “happily ever after”, in truth, it’s never that simple.
When we fall in love, the feelings generated are among the strongest we will ever experience. Love is the greatest elixir of life, without question. You have probably said more than once “I feel like I have known this person all my life.” But why?
Relationships are cyclical, just as day turns to night. They transition from romantic love, fondly known as the honeymoon period, through to the power struggle, which are essentially the bad patches or not so good times and then with awareness and understanding and the right communication, into deeper intimate communion and true love.
Sadly many of us end relationships when the bad patches arrive, believing that our once so perfect partner, is now not meant for us at all. Many couples sadly cannot see their way beyond relationship conflicts, which often leads to divorce and painful endings.
- But what if these relationship conflicts were essential for your growth and healing ?
- What if this person who appears to have grown horns over night, is in fact your perfect match ?
- What if you just needed to become aware of exactly what is going on in you and in your partner ?
Our romantic relationship is absolutely our truest mirror, but our struggles are ultimately with ourselves and NOT our partner. It’s called the Law of Attraction. We attract to us exactly what we need to help us grow. Successful love and marriage relationships function on fully conscious behaviour, based on complete truth, authenticity of the self and a desire to give love unconditionally. If humanity were filled with such an attitude, there would be no pain and suffering on this treasured Earth of ours.
“Become loving. When you are in the embrace, become the embrace. Become the kiss. Forget yourself so totally that you can say, “I am no more. Only love exists.” Then the heart is not beating, but love is beating. Then the blood is not circulating, but love is circulating. Then eyes are not seeing, love is seeing. Then hands are not moving to touch, love is moving to touch. Become love and enter everlasting life. Love suddenly changes your dimension. You are thrown out of time and you are facing eternity. Love can become a deep meditation, the deepest possible. Lovers have known sometimes what saints have not known.”
