Being in Love
[For young adults]
The possessive clinging of two people to each other is a very different thing from the spontaneity and freedom of a relationship based on wisdom and spiritual love.
Possessive love, which is only a counterfeit of a truly Christlike relationship, tends to create anxiety or uneasiness without bringing fulfillment. Yet God, divine Love, gives all His children the wisdom to move freely and happily together in relationships that bring joy and progress to each one. This can be proved in our experience.
During a year as an exchange teacher in a northern European country, I met a wonderful girl, and we fell deeply in love. Being with her brought lyrical beauty and joy into my life. But underneath I felt restless and indecisive about this relationship, and so did she. At the end of my stay it seemed clear that we were not yet ready to spend our lives together. So, with a feeling of anguish and deep regret, we separated.
