Learn to love again.
When I lost my wife many years ago, I thought I won’t be able to love again. This love thing was put on hold.
Do I need another woman to learn to love again?
Dr. Sigmund Freud, dubbed as father of psychology, once wrote,
“We ride with our ancestors on streetcars. We are carriers of all the relationships we have.”
Freud was pointing out that we tend to be psychologically shaped by past loves. The heritage of the people we got connected to.
How could I possibly move on from that place when I lost my wife?
My energies simply imploded and exploded. Things spiraled around me. Imprints did happen invisibly.
One day, I had a dream. I saw a woman setting up a new sunlit place for me. She smiled at me and waited. She saw me stranded.
Then the dream turned into reality.
Eventually I met a loving woman. From her, at first, I hid my fears and wounds. The fear of losing, failing. The fear of being rejected. The fear of the past haunting my present.
Yet she still helped me do what’s possible to open my heart again. And it did open. My fears and wounds started, little by little, to wash away.
She put in the time and care to create space for change. Another chance for love. She ushered me to a fuller world, with grace, forgiveness, and hope.
Yes, learn to love again. Live again. When you do, you’re encountering the transcendent. With or without you realizing it.
