Lack of Depth.


When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.


Deepak- I am currently dating someone whom I have been with for about 5 months now. We were friends for about a year before we finally started dating. She has an amazingly pure, if very plain and simple, heart. But because of that lack of depth, I’ve felt very spiritually disconnected from her and I feel the need to end the relationship. This past summer, her father died, leaving her, her mother and 15 year old sister. (We are 20 and juniors in college). It was obviously a difficult time for her, but she admits that my deeper thinking and contemplation of spiritual matters helped her navigate through that time and is still helping her do so. I feel guilty now and also selfish for wanting to leave her, even though there is technically nothing tangibly wrong about our relationship (especially from her perspective.) How should I handle this situation?


Consider that while you offer your girlfriend a kind of spiritual or intellectual depth, she might be offering you a kind of emotional depth based on the simplicity and purity of her heart.  There is a profound wisdom that kind of emotional honesty. That reciprocity of mutual support for each other may be what brought you two together in the first place. If there is a real connection between you two, don’t discard the relationship without thinking about what a valuable gift she might be giving you just through her being who she is.
