You Can Live There
“Most of the time, we fall in love but can’t remain there. The world calls the state we were in delusion or infatuation. But we were not deluded. We were not infatuated. We merely lacked, or someone else lacked, the emotional skills to hold on to the magic when morning came.
Later we would tell ourselves that that moment of magic had not been real, but that analysis is just a collective lie. We invented the lie as a way to face the disappointment of having been to the moon on a starlit night, and then fallen back down to what can seem like such a barren earth.
Forget your old ideas. Forget the lies they told you. Forget them all, and you will begin to remember. There is a realm of romantic enchantment that makes the world we are currently living in seem not so very important, and not even so very real.
That realm is entered two by two. It is not just an emotional vacation spot, but in fact our newest spiritual frontier. In fact, it is where we are supposed to live. And in that place, we do not just live. In that place, we live forever.”
– Marianne Williamson, Enchanted Love
You *can* stay there, but it takes focus and prioritizing your relationship; believing that both your emotional and sexual connection is vital and worth putting the time and energy into. Like a plant that needs water and sunlight, our relationship needs constant attention and nurturing. So make the time.
