According to A Course in Miracles, Love is the CONTENT of all relationships. The form may change, but the content does not.
Love isn't about romance . . . or sex . . . or possession. LOVE is about wanting for others what you want for yourself . . . PEACE.
I not-so-jokingly say that getting divorced was the best thing Renfrew and I did for our relationship. It is true. While we 'loved' each other, the form and function of marriage had stopped working for us. I had turned into a nagging shrew and he had closed himself off into a passive aggressive non-participant. At some point in the process of divorce, I stopped wanting to control the outcome and sincerely prayed for both of us to be HEALED of our pain. It worked (at least it did as far as I am concerned). I began to look at Renfrew with softer eyes and saw the pain we were causing each other. I finally let go . . . .
It is trusting that a step taken with LOVE will get you where you need to be, even though that may not be where you think you want to be.
