We don’t have a future together. We only have right here, right now.

To the ego, that’s incredibly depressing. But to recognise the utter preciousness of this moment liberates me from the need to possess or control you. In this timelessness, we truly meet. 

Love is the disappearance of time, the disappearance of the story of 'relationship'; it is the open field in which true relationship becomes possible.

I still find it difficult to make this switch from the 'old' way of thinking. What still makes it hard for me is that even when you're in a long term relationship and you realize there's only precious now - you can still get very depressed because of the immense suffering your dying loved one has to go through.

Out beyond ideas of
Wrongdoing and right doing,
There is a field.
I will meet you there.
-- Rumi

The illusion that love is summed up in one particular person and the subsequent need to possess in order not to 'lose' love. 
Guilty of falling into that trap from time to time, and grateful for the pain of inauthenticity that inevitably comes with it. 
It's like the pain is pushing to truly relate, each and every moment; again and again and again...

The true partnership and connection with our soul, is to be achieved through our ego. The ego is the counterweight of our soul to bring about the understanding of our spirit.
