When the Buddhist monk told me I was wrong, I was so surprised!
I hurt badly. My three year old relationship had hit the rocks. Over with a very big ‘O.’ And there was nothing I could do.
My ex-partner put it simply and succinctly. ‘I’ve lost enthusiasm for you.’
Trouble was I hadn’t lost enthusiasm for him.
So it was hard to acknowledge it was over and I missed him like stink.
I knew a Buddhist monk at the time. He was a Yorkshire man who smoked like a chimney and swore like a trooper but a Buddhist monk nevertheless!
Speaking with him, I remember saying, ‘The deep level of pain I’m feeling must surely indicate how much I love him.’
He said, ‘Bullshit!’
It’s a word I use myself. A great word to paradoxically ‘cut through the crap’ especially illusions and delusions!
I took a sharp intake of breath, wounded he’d treated my devotion so slightly.
‘The mistake you’ve made,’ he continued, ‘is believing love only comes in the shape of one person when, in effect, it’s all around you.’
When I considered what he said, I realised it was true.
The kind word spoken at a bus stop, strangers helping if you stumble, asking after a sick relative’s wellbeing at the baker’s and a million other moments during the day when love is manifested.
The events you witness AND the events you don’t.
However, it was to be years before I discovered the love on the inside too…
One day, working with my organic process to grow personally and spiritually, I stumbled on my Wild Soul.
The rest, as they say, is history!
Your Wild Soul carries your original design, the blueprint of who you were meant to be. It’s also your gorgeous fail proof inner guidance system. And…
Much much more!
It’s the spark of the divine within you.
If, like me, you believe in a loving and abundant universe, so is that spark within. Always, always that source of love and abundance is available to you.
Just focus inside!
There are no words to describe how wonderful it is to close your eyes, take a few deep breaths and then feel deep loving energy embrace you and surround you no matter what.
Love and Warm Wild Wishes…
PS You can learn how to feel love on the inside too. Connect with your Wild Soul, your loving spark of the divine, on 30th November. Click the link for full details…
