When You’re… REALLY… Stuck in Relationships

Last week started off upbeat and busy and full of the kinds of plans that keep me motivated.  Sandwiched in between work was a side trip to look for a sofa.  I stopped by my friend’s office to take her with me. When I was inside, we heard a loud pop from the parking lot.  She and I and her assistant raced to the window to see that the scary noise was MY car…exploding in a cloud of steam or smoke or both … with gunk running out the bottom of it.  Great.

According to my garage, ordinarily it would only take a day…or two…to fix it.  But because of one thing … and another … each day passed with me thinking it would be my last one as car-less.  And so…the whole week dragged on.

Some things I just don’t do well without, like…food, shelter, and wheels.  I grew up on ranch where I started driving a pickup when I was 13.  It wasn’t a privilege as much as it was a part of being able to function and survive.

I guess I could have rented a car last week, but the garage kept promising my car would be ready any minute …and so I waited.  By the end of the week, I had the sour disposition, the headache, and the hopeless-helpless attitude to go with it.  I was just gorgeous.

Okay.  I finally realized it … I guess I needed this.  When people write and tell me how stuck they are in their dating, or their relationship, or even their job, my reaction is—DO something.  But now I’m reminded … we can’t always make it happen as fast as we’d like to.

I was thinking that this year, I needed to get a new horse.  Now I’m starting to change my mind.  I need a new car.  Sometimes, maybe it’s actually better to put the cart before the horse.

Do You Feel Invisible?

In the article, “Invisible,” in the July/August 2020 issue of the Atlantic Magazine, one of the leaders in today’s science of concealment talked about a project he’s been working on for two years. Guy Cramer, owner of HyperStealth Biotechnology Corporation, has found a method that uses refraction to disappear objects.  He calls it quantum stealth.  It works by bending light around an object.  So far, he says, they’ve been able to make an object the size of an orange completely disappear.
 
I’m not a scientist, so I don’t completely understand these things…but I do have a fertile imagination.  This article made me pause… gave me some different lines of thought… and set me into another zone of quiet.  I began to think about some things, like, before I see an object disappear, or before I even disappear myself with a Harry Potter-like invisibility cloak…I need more in-depth concentration on listening to others; perhaps a shift in perception in what I’m hearing; and probably to take time for a deeper appreciation for what I’m giving my attention to.
 
Because one of the worst feelings in the world is to be treated like you are invisible.  To not be seen; to not be recognized in some way; or simply to be tolerated… is an injury to the heart.  It’s important that when you’re talking with someone…and especially when you’re socializing and dating…to give that person your full attention.  Ask questions, listen, and ask more questions.  When you can do this…no one will ever want you to disappear.

Telepathy in Relationships

One hundred years ago, 18% of households in the U.S. had at least one full-time servant or domestic help.  In Dr. Michio Kaku’s book, “The Physics of the Future”, he foresees that 100 years from now, when you wake up in the morning, your life will have a different kind of help.  You will wrap some wires around your head and then telepathically tell the robotic cook in your kitchen to make your breakfast.  Your car will drive itself out of your garage from the message you send telepathically…transporting you to work by floating silently on a cushion of magnetism, allowing you to love the cruising.
 
Would you like to create your future world now?  You can certainly do it in your relationships.  Telepathically send out messages of appreciation to those close to you—and watch how they respond to you at the end of the day.
 
Dr. Henry Grayson talks about this phenomenon in his book, “Mindful Loving.”  Telegraphing loving thoughts to others will send a flood of love your way.  Try it.
