Just Answer the Phone




Your Vision is Blurred

Sometimes in our hast to find love we fail to realize what the real thing is. It’s like when my wife makes her special chocolate chip cookies. They always taste the same way and the word incredible amply describes how they make you feel when you eat them. Finding the love of your life is as easy as eating my wife’s chocolate chip cookies. Of course I don’t have to make them, my job is only to eat and enjoy. I think maybe that’s the way to find love, don’t make it just find it and enjoy it with every fiber of your being.

Never Felt the Real Thing

I truly believe that most people don’t know what true love is and because of that we make decisions predicated on what we think it is and that proves to be fatal most of the time. Love is not all those things we think it is. How someone looks is probably the number one reason people think there in love. Sex and money are the second reasons people believe they have found their dream person. These three imaginary reasons for believing love has found us, prove that most people don’t have a clue what real love is all about.

Felt Right

Last night for the first time I asked my wife why she said yes to me when I asked her to marry me? She said it just seemed right and everything felt good to her. That is of course exactly how I feel about her.

Is Your Phone Off

It’s amazing how much time we spend trying to please someone who we qualify as a possible life partner for us. We seem to think that we can make over ourselves and that will help us look attractive to someone else. So we spend all this time, effort and money to lure love to us. It’s like trying to catch a fish with a with a whole box of lures. Its not a lure that makes love come to you, loves comes because love is calling and all you have to do, is answer the phone.

Let Your Feelings Make the Decision

So the journey goes on and people want love but spend all their time thinking that they know what it is, rather then just letting love happen. Of course to make this kind of thinking work one must ignore there basic instinct to select what we like and play the field till the right person shows up. Yes that is hard because we always think we know what were doing. History and the facts prove this kind of thing totally void of any good rational.

Close Your Eyes & Pick

I think the reason we select people via our eyes is because seeing something is are normal way of selecting something we like. It’s like buying a car we see, like and then buy. But then the seeing value fades away and the joy we feel leaves us like a thief in the night.

Make the Last Choice Your First Choice

Also love doesn’t get a fair shake when sides are selected. I remember when I was a young boy and a bunch of us decided to play football for example. Two people would designate themselves quarterbacks and then each would select a person and that would go back and forth till everyone was selected for a team. I was almost always chosen almost in the last few selected. Using this kind of selecting love would probably be chosen last and that’s why so many people find themselves with the wrong person. Love doesn’t get a fair chance because it doesn’t appeal to our visual needs and because of that it doesn’t appeal to us. Love only requires a test of our feelings and that makes it more important then all other considerations. But alas its not given an adequate interview, which if given would show it to be the best choice amount all choices. All to often love is found only when all other choices are exhausted and then and only then do we see love for what it really is, the person most likely to be chosen last. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
