Let Intention Replace Memory

Over the past several months we have been looking here at the Holy Experience and yourself. This week we continue to look at the Holy Experience and your significant other.

The most powerful thing we can do when we form a romantic relationship with a significant other is to see them as ourselves. "And the two shall become one." This is the essence of the Holy Experience.

The Holy Experience as it relates to your significant other is the forgetting of the Single Self through the enfolding of that Other into the Self as a part of the Self, as one with the Self, and identical to the Self. It is when there is no place where the Self ends and the Other begins. When there is absolutely no experience of separation, real or imagined.

In day-to-day relationship with your significant other, when something--anything--happens, you give that happening meaning. Just as you give everything in your life meaning. What meaning you give the events in your relationship depends on whether you are coming from your Past or your Present.

As I have made clear now several times, most people come from their Past. In fact, most people find it impossible not to. They make their decisions about what is going on in this moment in their relationship based on their prior thought.

Masters, on the other hand, make their decisions based on their future intention. Memory or intention. That is the choice. Always. When you come from your memory, you create one kind of experience of relationship with your significant other. When you come from your intention, you create another kind of experience altogether.

This coming from intention rather than from memory is the adult magic that can make all your relationship dreams come true. It is the shift from reaction to creation that makes all relationships feel brand new.

Just as you can recreate your self anew in every golden moment of now in the next grandest version of the greatest vision ever you held about Who You Are, so, too, can you recreate your relationship anew.

And if the person with whom you are in relationship truly is your significant other, this is what you will want to do in every golden moment of now. As it relates to your most intimate friend, this is the Holy Experience.

Next week we will look at The Holy Experience as it relates to "family." Be with us then!

Hugs and love,
