“For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.” ~Judy Garlandz
Finding True Love: The Makings of Healthy Relationships
Healthy relationships start with not just finding someone, but finding “the one.” Anyone can kiss your lips or whisper sweet nothings in your ear; but this is not the foundation of true love.
True love begins where lust, attachment and infatuation end—where fulfillment of the body is integrated with fulfillment of the ever-present non-physical part of who you are.
True love begins where trust replaces fear, humility replaces pride, acceptance replaces judgment, mutual respect outlines choices and love-making is no longer a sport.
Healthy relationships manifest, not from flying sparks and fluttering hearts, but from the solace found in the quiet embrace of two souls destined to journey in union.
True love is the glue that seals your bond to “the one.” The one whose voice speaks, not just to your ears, but to your heart; the one that connects not just with your body, but with your Soul. Is such a love not worth waiting for? The choice is yours. But why fall in love when you can walk in love? Why settle with someone, when you can bond with “the one?”
If it is the fulfillment of true love that you seek, await the experience of a connection far greater, yet simpler, than the excitement of infatuation. Await true love. Await a Soul connection, which is more enduring than rapture, less anxious than attachment, far deeper than lust. Await the one with whom you can bear your Soul, allowing the connection of true love that stems from beyond this world.
True love can be defined as a manifestation of love in action. Love that is unshakable, enduring, meaningful, sincere. You can have that love. Just remember, healthy relationships are not perfect relationships; they are balanced relationships. Balanced by good times and bad, forgiveness and mistakes, ecstasy and tranquility.
