The Honeymoon Period of a Relationship is Not Time Limited
The honeymoon period of a relationship is not time limited. It is also not an experience of craziness. It is perhaps when you are most sane because you have the experience of dropping out of your anxious thoughts and getting present to the moment and to the feeling of your true nature. You fall into love. Not love with the other person, but the experience of love within yourself. Then at some point, you have an insecure experience again, and it looks like it is the other person’s fault. But how can it be? Your experience is not caused by things outside of you. It is created within.
When Angus got insecure he tried all kinds of strategies to tame me thinking that would help him feel better. Of course, none of them worked. Well, maybe I did express compassion for him after his boxing match with himself, but that was only a temporary fix and certainly not a sustainable way to feel better.
What is more helpful is to see that your happiness never comes from another person or circumstance. Happiness lies within. The honeymoon period of a relationship shows us what is possible and available to us. That level of joy exists within. Rewilding relationships is about seeing the love that is there and allowing it to naturally flourish. It is not about fixing or changing your partner, it is about falling into the natural state of love that is within and allowing that to be freely expressed. Let your true nature take its course!
