Until you imagine something, it remains an impossibility.
Once imagined, it becomes your experience.
Who smile in each other’s company.
They say a strong and sensual YES to each other.
Their YESes meet and fill their experience.
Who tell the truth about what works and what doesn’t.
They co-create solutions for their shared challenges.
No truth is too hard for them to speak or hear.
Who spend purposeful time together.
They cultivate life-affirming friends and experiences.
They share the everyday details of life with ease and grace.
Who guard each other’s solitude.
They cultivate spaces in their togetherness.
They delight in each other’s individuality.
Who turn toward each other with heart-full attention.
Their sexual and orgasmic impulses are moistened by their
emotional connection and flow naturally in each other’s presence.
Who support each other’s creative impulses and expression.
They welcome and encourage shared creative adventures.
They aren’t afraid to color outside the lines.
Who share a spiritual practice of silence and reflection
to stay in alignment with the essence of their love.
Gratitude for ALL THAT IS fills their relationship.
And so it is!
