How do you maintain a relationship when the sizzle dies? Deepak explores how love goes beyond “sizzle,” and explores the definition of love and relationships. Love is joy, happiness, sexuality, creative expression, joy, and inspired motivation for everything. Is it possible we are mistaking “sizzle” for the accouterments of love (instead of the real thing)?

    Dr. Chopra. Thank you. I am feeling in crisis due to circumstance. This was entirely relevant.

    You are a gift Dr. Chopra. This provided a synchronicitically for me. I needed someone to explain a concept I thought was simple to my former fiancee. Perhaps it ended up causing more confusion due to having the man I love say adamantly that he was only infatuated. So I try to explain certain things because although this is his first long term relationship I have been here before. Wisdom may be to meditate more and try to talk openly, honestly and more lightly for now.

    He has good memories with me, although some he has forgotten. Due to trauma in both of our lives I feel as though our relationship started as a synchronicity that healed not just me in ways but he and his family. His anger management is better and I have been there for his dad and little brother and them for me.

    My understanding is that love is always a choice just as kindness is. Over time managing my own emotions I have learned this through mindfulness and meditation.

    I think he may not understand himself. He works too much at a job he claims he loves but he doesn’t light up in the manner he had before when working an apprenticeship. Maybe he is afraid. I need to quit telling him that because it isn’t good for ego. Clearly I am a strong willed woman Deepak. I also love deeply and his family ie like my own and the first home I have had in a long time.

    All I can do is express my hurt (since I need to live with his family and he. Due to injury I have been unable to return to finish my Bachelor’s in science and go on to my master’s – Chem, BioChem or perhaps neuroscience). But not just that, to be open and honest and to be love and show it with forgiveness.

    From Dr. Wayne Dyer I learned to say this and it has taken time: “I am sending you love and light regardless of how you feel about me. I forgive you for unkindness because I can. I chose to love you.” It stopped him from spitting ugly vitrole at me. It changed perspective. After that he took me on the best date (though there haven’t been many) he has in about 6 months.

    I let go of attachments to a certain outcome. But I live one day at a time in my present paradigm.

    Namaste 🕉
