The other day I received this letter:
“I’ve been on a Real Love journey now for about two years, and here is what I’ve observed:
I have lost all attachment to 'stuff' and I'm not afraid of losing anything I own.
Nothing else I 'do', 'have' or 'see' gives me a better feeling than the one I have every day. (Imitation love is meaningless when you have Real Love.)
I no longer get bored.
I am not afraid of dying anymore.
I am living in the present—most of the time—where I always lived in fear of the future before.
I am becoming more and more personally responsible and this is removing the fear of being alone if anything should happen to my husband (this one used to terrify me).
The relationship I have with my husband now, is the one I always dreamed of and so much more (and we almost gave up and ended it a couple of years ago).
I never think about the past with ANY pain at all. In fact, it's almost as if I can barely remember anything pre-Real Love, like it was all meaningless.
I am able to feel loving compassion towards people more and more and now have a very sweet relationship with my parents, even though they are still pretty empty.
I don’t feel guilty about the mistakes I made with my children, even though occasionally I’m reminded of them when I see their behaviors.
I am seeing the folly of trying to get people to understand anything, unless they are asking.
I am seeing that by offering people consistent unconditional love, eventually they seem to feel it and begin to blossom, without necessarily even realizing it themselves.
So, I have come such a long way, but I realize that this is a life-long journey. More and more fears/behaviors will emerge, but I am so happy with where I am.”
What one person can do, other people can do. There was a time when this woman was so stuck in being right that she couldn’t see straight, but she had the faith and courage to press on, and now her whole life is different. Miracle. She’s quite an example for the rest of us.
Replace your fear and confusion with peace and happiness.
