I did an intervention with Bob and his wife, and as a result they both became much happier and grew much closer to each other. Bob was an intensely intellectual person, and it was most fulfilling to see his soul begin to wake up as he felt my love for him.
But then they went home, and Bob’s emotional progress seemed to stall. I recommended that he attend a Real Love group that met at a place more than two hours from his home, but he said, “Oh, that’s just too far to go.”
“Depends on what your happiness is worth,” I said.
“That’s a lot to ask.”
“I’m not asking,” I said. “Your growth is slowing down, and you asked me what you could do. I’m just answering your question, not asking you to do anything.”
He went to the group and wrote me a couple of days later: “I went to the group, and I met this guy who is amazing. He understands feelings and truth telling. He has passions about nature and music. He’s special. He’s been in Real Love just for a few months—not at long as I have—but he’s really applied himself. His family has really changed. They have family meetings where they sit together and actually hug. He's open and sensitive—a true miracle. I'm gonna stay close to this guy and steal his secrets!”
We can’t do Real Love alone. We need each other. We need people to love us. We need other people with whom to practice loving. Loving is a team sport. Play the game.
Learn how to truly love others and give them what they need.
