One factor I’ve realized about love by being with Susie is…
This second is all we’ve ever received.
We’re by no means promised one other second.
After we first received 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 received 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second once I first had that fearful story about our age distinction and what it meant, I used to be solely 35 years outdated on the time and to this point out into the long run that I had misplaced the great thing about the current second.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 12 months or 20 years from now.
However proper now on this current second.
This brings up questions like…
What’s on supply 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 up to now is how typically we get to this point out into the long run that our ideas and fears take over and run the present known as our life.
After I realized…
That this second is all we ever have…
All the things modified.
This was when the fears concerning the future dissipated they usually pale away, and had been not a problem.
What I got here to see was…
The fears handle themselves if you drop all of your tales concerning the future and also you give attention to 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 displaying up as love, the remainder 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 realized the significance of THIS second and the way it really creates a tremendous love that may final.
Susie and I are going to be speaking about extra issues like this that open up extra prospects for love in our model new program that begins on November eighth known as “a Million Prospects for Love.”
