“Remember that you cannot control what happens to you. But you can control who you are in the face of what happens to you.”
I don’t how long we’ve been together — 17 years? 16? — but I do know that Julie and I just celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary. It’s been a wild, and at times astonishing ride.
So suffice it to say, the subject of relationships is on my mind.
So how does one attract, cultivate, nurture and sustain a relationship that isn’t just healthy and intimate but is in fact extraordinary?
This week’s installment of Ask Me Anything is devoted to just this issue.
This conversation explores:
- the transformational aspects of relationships
- destiny & fate in selecting a mate
- human love versus divine love
- prioritizing self-development
- the primacy of commitment
- the significance of complementary core values
- the power of neutral compassion & observance
- the practice of taking contrary action
Special thanks to Jeremy Bell for this week’s questions and Jason for his fan letter.
The show concludes with I’m Here Now, written and performed by Julie (aka SriMati), accompanied by our sons Tyler & Trapper Piatt.
I sincerely hope you enjoy the conversation.
How do you define an extraordinary relationship? Let me know in the comment section below.
