Thank you for this article! I have found it very transformational. I have been fighting with the clinginess/entanglement of fantasies about unsuitable "dream lovers" and up until now my approach has been to be aware and interrupt the thoughts. Firstly this has been very difficult and it does require a lot of discipline, and secondly, I have also felt like I am missing the point/opportunity a little bit. The tantric approach resonates with me, as it feels like I am using whatever comes my way (the present) to awaken and soften and grow, it feels more positive. So again, thank you for pointing me in a different direction, I look forward to using this technique and am excited to see where it leads me.

Love everyone and expect nothing. Simple, sure and safe!!

I lived with abuse for 24 years. i left the relationship. I learnt to finally love myself and those who try to love. Each difficulty you face teaches you to trust yourself in life's struggles. I think Karma means you reap what you sew. I wish happiness to all who try to love. Thankyou for the wisdom in the journal.

I have experienced the love, with it's painful lessons that although did not last forever, taught me great lessons to see myself as the one who has the love and continues to give it in healthy ways.

Personally, though I am nearly 60 and have heard this same advice for along time, I will never accept that we meet, and love deeply, people that we cannot be with, as a means of learning a lesson. I think we only learn that life is painful and sometimes, very, very unfair.
