In the springtime, with the flowers budding and the birds chirping as Mother Nature awakens from winter's sleep, the air is thick with pheromones. It's hard not to have romance on the brain. Let's talk about true romance, and some of the common misconceptions in the romance department.
True romance is when two people love each other and are compatible on a spiritual level. Whatever your spiritual beliefs are, they are the core of your belief system and the foundation from which you grow in life. Long-term partners have compatible spiritual beliefs, and therefore the potential for unlimited growth together. And if people can continue to grow together, they can stay together happily. From this core connection, passion can be sustained, and external expressions of romance can continue beyond the courting phase. From this deep level of caring, the true "fairytale romance" can exist.
Watch out for some common romantic mix-ups:
* A true relationship is not all candy and flowers. Good relationships are growth oriented, with both partners learning and growing together as they evolve in life, as individuals and as a couple. Growth does not have to be hard, but it does require commitment, attention and respect from both people.
* Romance is a two-way street. It is not just from one person to the other. With true romance, both partners care so deeply about the other that they delight each day in finding new ways to show their love. These expressions of love can be little or big; they differ from relationship to relationship.
* Don't ever settle for less than the true romance you deserve, whatever this may look like to you. If trying to connect romantically with your partner is like pulling teeth, look to the internal spiritual connection. If there is no connection here, it is time to reevaluate the relationship.
There is always a limitless abundance of potential partners to choose from. So with spring reminding us of love, feel the romance in your life!
