Love Relationships

Category:  Ask Deepak

Question:

Regarding love relationships, how do we find balance between not holding on to the one we love, setting this person free, and at the same time committing to each other and building an intimate, trusting and deep relationship?


Response:

The balance lies in finding a deeper expression of your love. Because full love forms stronger ties of trust and intimacy, while still giving the partner freedom to be who they are without control or possessiveness.

Love,
Deepak

  • Hey Deepak, this is Tony Savickas, I couldn`t agree more with your view on love and relationships! Please take a few minutes to check out my blog at http://www.tonysavickas.com/blog/

  • I think when things don't work out, either you or the other wasn't ready or cannot compute the aforementioned truth and highest standard…and this too is not a bad thing. When you also choose unwisely there is a reason, and that lies within you, so it is not about the other and something they did. Maybe you ultimately helped that person see something different. Maybe you didn't want to be tied down and chose a relationship where you would have to walk away. Other people don't hurt you. You hurt you, and that is the deepest betrayal we feel, when we can't trust our own judgement. Be true to yourself and understand why you did what you did. There was a reason and it's usually not the backward-stepping one we often think.

  • Need to be faraway too close

  • I`ve just started meditating and wondering is it worth it to meditate even while your in bad health? E.g heavy breathing, body aches and pains. Or is it best to wait until ones health has improved. Common sense tells me that meditation will improve my health in time however I just want to make sure. Also is posture majorly important? As I`m just practicing a simple breath meditation that I have learned from Deepak and haven`t had any formal lessons in meditation. Thank you very much to whoever responds.

  • That is understandable! Thank you! It is not really love when someone is controlling.

  • Finding a deeper expression of your love. This means being able to clarify with each other what manner of deeper expression would both want and how. This requires communication. If you leave the other guessing what you really want and not knowing exactly what you're thinking, you're not making the balance possible.

  • love is when you stop seeking the best in each other. Love is not defined by any norm. Love is not proper or correct. Love is an ocean that goes to a depth that only the two of you feel. And it doesn't end.

  • Ok here it goes.....it's a beautiful story with d message ..there was a queen deeply in love wid the most beautiful bird and one day her love for the bird overpowered her senses due to which she put the bird in the cage just so that the bird doesn't go anywhere else. What do u think happened? .....It died and the queen lost its love.......relationships n love are all about feeling the emotions not manipulating them....with acceptance of this truth comes true realisation of what love is.......:)

  • En cuanto a las relaciones de amor, ¿cómo encontrar el equilibrio entre no aferrarse a la persona que amamos, el establecimiento de esta persona libre, y al mismo tiempo comprometerse el uno al otro y la construcción de una relación íntima, de confianza y profundo? Respuesta: ... El equilibrio está en encontrar una expresión más profunda de su amor. Porque el amor al formulario completo de los lazos más fuertes de la confianza y la intimidad, sin dejar de dar la libertad socio para ser quienes son sin control o posesión.

  • If the person is in your dreams, they are meant to be in your life. If you do not dream about them, they are just a guide to a bigger picture of what God has planned for you, a right relationship with someone else.

  • Actually we must need to have sound understanding and knowing each other with deepest level before we decide to get married. As most relationships ends with breakup or hurts as they haven't understanding each other physically, emotionally and spiritually perfectly. Around 40% people are living with divorce, separated or breakup tag just due to lack of understanding each other well before they get married. There will be perfect balance and strong bond of ties between 2 soul if they have chosen their soul mate with sound understanding emotionally and spiritually. Life partner relationships is heavenly scripted truly strong bond of relationships between heavenly made soul mates so construct solid bridge of love relationship in the presence of true love, well understanding, trust, respect, attitude of gratitude, sense of responsibility and loyality cz such element gives never ending life of solid bridge of love till you live on this planet. Live the life you deserve fullest as being purposed by almighty god.
