Martin called me and said, "My wife, Cynthia, is all gaga over this Real Love stuff, and she wants me to get involved with her. But we've already done marriage counseling, read books, done retreats. None of it made any difference. Why try again?"
I asked him what he did for a living, and when he said he was a wheat farmer, I asked, "What if I could give you a seed that would give you a 50% increase in crop yield, while requiring 50% less fertilizer and water? And the seed is less expensive. What would you say?"
"I'd try it tomorrow."
"I would think so. And that's what Real Love is. It's the seed we've all been looking for all our lives. I'm not asking you to try harder or try again. I'm suggesting that you try something vastly different. In the long term, Real Love is less work and will give you a yield that is dramatically different from anything you've ever seen. The yield, in fact, isn't just more. It's an entirely different crop, a better crop, one that keeps on giving."
People often protest that they don't want to try again, or try harder, or do something else, but Real Love is the most important ingredient for our personal happiness and for fulfillment in our relationships. Plant the seeds now, fertilize them, tend them, and watch them produce the joy you've always wanted.
Find genuine happiness now and forever.
