Happy almost Valentine's Day. Today's sunspiration is obviously inspired by love. An interesting newsletter came into my inbox with an article titled, 'Is it Love or Fantasy?" This article stirred my brain with thoughts regarding love, fantasy and reality.
Both men and women live in a fantasy. We are indoctrinated by Hollywood and both genders have overlays, which lives in a place of fantasy unable to see reality or people for who they are. I believe fairy tale romances exist if two people in love work at it. And that fairy tale occurs when looking deep into the soul of your partner.
The article states, "If you find beauty and light there instead of darkness, and have an appreciation for what you have found, then the chances that you have found real love are enormously improved. If you are in love with the inner beauty you have found in the other person, and they are in love with the inner beauty they have found in you, the likelihood is that it is real love and not fantasy. If this is a shared beauty, this is the basis for a lasting love—a love that will last beyond physical life and through all eternity."
I've lost love in my life, and I hope to inspire everyone to cherish the love they have in their life. "The light within me recognizes and acknowledges the light within you." I hope you can see the light with the love in your life. Enjoy it. Cherish it. And if it's real, never take it for granted.
