Love in the
By Barbara Mark & Trudy Griswold
The angels tell us the concepts of love are about to change. Love
is the number one thing people want to ask their angels about. But
angels don’t think about love like we do.
The Angels Speak:
People try to make love “fit” love into their life--into the
categories of love that your culture has defined in the last
century. Ideals of love in the 2000s are going to be different. That
is what this new millennium is all about. That is what we angels
have come to teach you. The “new” love is going to be deeper, more
encompassing, more generous, less sexual, and more committed. You
have seen in the last 20 years that marriage rites have shifted.
People are learning to love without a binding contract and that the
contractual part of marriage is being set apart from the actual
marriage ritual itself.
Is this bad? No. It is part of the evolution of love. In the olden
days, marriage was arranged by politicians and families with no
thought or care if the man and woman loved each other. There was no
concept, as you know it today, to “love” you partner. Respect and
kindness was all a bride could expect or hope for on her wedding
day. Today everyone wants romantic love.
Romantic love is the most cursory love. It is surface only. It is
shallow and trite, compared to other deeper loves. When you see a
lover at the very first, you see shallowly. You see with your eyes,
but quickly you deepen your attention into each other’s soul. After
the original recognition and hello to hello, you begin to try to
quantify and categorize the loving feelings you are experiencing.
You soon find love cannot be categorized because the ideas of what
you think love is changes as you begin to become more intimate. And
yet, when you hear the words, I love you, you think immediately of
God gives you many kinds of love because when you have it, you are a
better and happier person. Yet it often happens that this wonderful
gift is taken apart to see how it works so then it can’t work. You
come together from the beginning with the expectation of your
relationship’s demise. When you are able to just “be” with your
love, you enjoy your time together. But as a couple, you have been
like two kids crying over a box of candy because you knew that each
piece you ate would take you closer to the time when it would be all
gone. You couldn’t enjoy a bite of it. It was too easy to be tied
into the romantic ideal of love.
Expect the concepts society has today about love to change in the
next decade. The love any two people have for each other will not be
the same. The 2000s are a time of advancement and refinement of old
beliefs. Partners have been given to each other in order to learn.
You will grow in truth and understanding. Love will become bigger
and more enjoyable. Love will be less shallow and important. It will
enhance and be more joyful. It will be more mature. You will like it
Experience, feel, and appreciate the different ways you love others
