From a story I’m writing: “Yesterday, I saw Peter standing across the room. We were in a movie theater. Seeing him from far away made me remember how much I love him. Somehow, it made him less accessible and more precious.
I was proud of him.
While we watched the movie I remembered how I used to often think about what I could do for him and how I could make him happy every day.
I decided to try to remember to do this again.”
What is it about seeing my husband in a different setting or around different people that makes me love him so much more in that moment?
I’d love to read your thoughts and comments.
Inspiration from the other side.
You’ve been on the spiritual path for a good while now. You’ve read the books. Maybe even met a guru or two. Sometimes, though, you need a different kind of inspiration. Inspiration from someone who knows how hard this inner peace stuff really is.
