After we first bought collectively, one of many issues that we needed to sort out proper from the beginning was the query of OUR age distinction.
Susie is 16 years older than me, and this query got here up about what it was gonna be like once we bought older.
What’s it gonna be like when she’s 80 and I’m 64 or she’s 90 and I’m 74?
What a ridiculous factor to consider.
That is ridiculous as a result of what I noticed is that in that second after I first had that fearful story about our age distinction and what it meant, I used to be solely 35 years outdated on the time and to this point out into the long run that I had misplaced the fantastic thing about the current second.
What I’ve seen about love by taking a look at a easy factor like our age distinction is that it forces us–and it forces me–to essentially keep current on this second.
Not subsequent week.
Not subsequent yr or 20 years from now.
However proper now on this current second.
This brings up questions like… What’s on provide on this current second? Can I open my coronary heart to her? Can she open her coronary heart to me?
One of many issues that I’ve seen each in myself and within the folks I’ve labored with prior to now is how usually we get to this point out into the long run that our ideas and fears take over and run the present referred to as our life.
Once I discovered…
That this second is all we ever have…
All the things modified.
This was when the fears in regards to the future dissipated and so they light away, and have been not a difficulty.
What I got here to see was…
The fears maintain themselves once you drop all of your tales in regards to the future and also you deal with this second–and bringing like to that second.
That’s what I needed to do with Susie within the early days of our relationship.
By simply specializing in THIS second and exhibiting up as love, the remaining has unfolded in stunning methods I couldn’t have predicted for 26 years now.
As a result of this second is all we ever have and since I’ve discovered the significance of THIS second and the way it really creates an incredible love that may final.
Susie and I are going to be speaking about extra issues like this that open up extra potentialities for love in our model new program that begins on November eighth referred to as “a Million Prospects for Love.”
