Being in Love

Being in Love

Preface

Many years ago, my Teacher realized that in school and college we are of course taught many things, but that many fundamentals of life are not taught at all. He recognized that one of the greatest causes of suffering is simply ignorance of what it means to be “in love” with someone, and noted the total lack of training offered to people on this subject. He said that life skills like what it means to be in love should be taught throughout one’s education. In response to this oversight in our education in life (about being in love), he wrote the following guidelines, in the hope of saving people the suffering that comes from ignorance in this subject.  What follows this paragraph was written by my Teacher, then organized, and formatted for you to read here.  These are ideas intended to be meditated on. Please print and pass it to anyone you care about.

I’m pleased to post it. I had intended to post this here two years ago, but every time I tried to post it, I couldn’t find my copy! Found it the other night.

Nice! I might add: it’s OK if there are some things you don’ particularly like about your love interest, provided there are more that you do like AND you can accept those things. Most importantly, is you both share the similar moral beliefs, in other words, what is important in life to each is congruent with what’s important with the other. As well, it should be possible for you both to have a real meeting of minds about what’s important.
