Andy's Guide to Relationships - A Different Point of View... Guide 5
Ah yes, the honeymoon phase. All is good with the world. The clouds in the sky take the form of cupid and the smallest little thing reminds you of your special one. It’s as if we have got a filter on, transforming the world into one big fuzzy, velvet, heart shaped cushion!
It’s at this time that the mind is particularly susceptible to projecting into the future, imagining engagements, weddings and even procreating with the special one. When we are with them, nothing else seems to matter. There is an intimacy in these precious moments together and yet at the same time there is a sense of perhaps being lost in it, swept away by all the excitement and anticipation. There’s no question that this phase should be embraced, enjoyed and encouraged, but it’s important to have a sense of perspective and to recognise when our thoughts have become obsessive or our emotions too dependent on another individual. This is the importance of training the mind.
