We all want to be happy, I guess, and happiness often arrives when we meet that special person. That’s when clichés and snatches from romantic songs suddenly sound less corny. How wonderful, colourful , beautiful  the world is!   We feel lighter, freer, everything is possible. That’s been my experience, at least, and I am pretty sure I am not alone.

That’s why re-entry into a much more prosaic psychic atmosphere, as the disappointments and disagreements arrive, is so devastating. It’s true - familiarity does sometimes lead to contempt. Sadly, it can turn the beauty of an intensely felt love into a mess. Even when the greatest wish of both partners is to preserve their love they wake up and find it has disappeared.

I recently read a passage from my spiritual guide, Omraam Michael Aivanhov, which has something  thought- provoking to say on this theme.  He proposes a radical method to preserve the happiness and inspiration we experience through being in love.  It probably isn’t for everyone but what do you think?

“Sometimes you meet a being to whom you feel immediately attracted. This person is like a vase filled with a precious essence that plunges you into a state of wonder; they inspire you, broaden your horizons and reveal the beauty of heaven and earth to you. Thank the Lord for having met this person, and if you want your joy to last for a long time, try to keep some distance. Why? Because the space between two people, which may appear empty, is actually filled with subtle essences which are the best conductors of psychic energy; it is this space that makes exchanges of harmony and light possible.
As long as there is a certain distance between you and the person you love, you can exchange energy, thanks to which you energize each other. Each time you meet, you will leave each other fulfilled, pervaded by an extraordinary happiness because keeping this distance creates the best conditions for communication between you. If you really take this advice and try to apply it, your life will never be short of happy encounters. And because you will know how to appreciate them, you will truly know what love is.”

​And another thought-

“A look, a moment of silence, a smile through which the soul expresses itself, is more precious than any physical form of expression or gift.”
