We fell in love on the cliffs of Negril!
Kurt and I fell in love in Jamaica...meditating. I truly believe that if we didn't have meditation as the bedrock of our relationship, we both would've been swept away by having a good time, until we weren't and just would have moved on. Sound familiar? But we were lucky enough to incorporate meditation into the early stage our relationship and that has given us staying power.
It's now our passion to share how meditation can make relationships strong and go the distance with lots of sparkle and joy. The good news is that it can be brought into our lives at anytime. Even if you have been happily with your partner for a while I still recommend you experience the depths of this ancient practice.
I think it’s a mistake to confuse enjoying the same forms of entertainment as being well suited to your partner. When Kurt and I met we were both obsessed with indie latin cinema, now while that’s a great shared interest, the output of these films dropped off for a few years, if our love had been dependent on their continued production I might have found myself back in the dating world. Does this make sense? If we base our happiness on our any aspect on the external world we are bound to experience the pain of loss or separation from this object of happiness at some point. This is the way of the world.
On the other hand if we are meditators we are constantly connecting to source and tuning into an inner joy that does not diminish with ephemeral reality. When we meditate we remove the blocks and obstacles to our own experience of the happiness and love that is the natural state of our hearts. Like any skill or habit, the more we do it, the stronger the impression in our lives. We become emotionally robust which I think is one of the hallmarks of a good partner, a good lover. Don’t you?
If you incorporate meditation into your relationship I’d love to hear your story. Leave a comment below or reach out on social media.
