FOREVER IS NOW. FOREVER IS LOVE.

LOVE IS NOW
“Love is Universal among sentient beings. Love is a “subjective energy” as individually unique as a Memory of Pleasures Won and Lost in The Winds of Immortality. Love can erase the state of “separation”… the apparent distance between Beings in the physical universe. Love transcends every thought, every moment, every place, regardless of time, energy or motion. Love is the Essence of Who We Really Are… Love is ALWAYS Love… Forever, in the Eternal Now.
The past is the “fingerprint” of our Eternal Selves.  We can NOT forget this…. not really.  Universes erode and decay….  Beings who create these illusions in the Eternal Now get bored with the silly games of Life, Universes and Other Stuff.  They drift away….
We are Eternal…. No beginning…. No end…..  We are “pretending not to know”….  But, the truth is that we DO know, we have ALWAYS known, and we will ALWAYS know….  It is not possible to “hide” from Our True Selves forever….  Forever is Now.”

PARTS OF A RELATIONSHIP

Recently, I’ve thought a lot about the subject of “relationships”, in an attempt to live my own life on Earth.  One of the most joyful and agonizing experiences in existence is the successful creation and maintenance of a “relationship”.   It is easy enough to withdraw from relationships and simply give up on them because they can be painful, confusing, frustrating and a lot of hard work!   In human society it is very commonly the source of turmoil, destruction and unhappiness.  If anyone has any more ideas about how to have a successful relationship, I’d like to know….

Here are a few definitions that I think are the most important parts of a “relationship”, in relative order of importance:

RELATIONSHIP
