Another Form of Communication

  • I am filled with awe and wonder at how “connected” people in love are!
    The number of miles apart, they matter not. The couple can and do
    “know” things they could not know. Yet, no recognized communication
    was exchanged by either party.    I swear there is another form of
    communication yet to be understood.

When two people are in love there seems to be a
form of communication that is not visible nor
verbal.   They can sense when the loved one
enters a room, even though unseen. 

I have even found the couple can sometimes
sense when their loved one is having a crisis
or is in need of support.    

This all seems impossible yet it has happened
over and over again for many years.  I would
say the individual has extra sensory perception (ESP),
but that has not yet proven to be true.  The ESP is
only exhibited with loved ones.   I have
shared this knowledge with friends and they
have on rare occasions experienced or seen
similar circumstances in other couples.  

I have sensed when my beloved wife has walked
into a room unseen.  She has sensed when
something was wrong and I needed support.
These are just two of the situations that have
occurred over and over again forcing the
acceptance of these words as fact.

I am not asking you to believe or disbelieve
my accounts nor my assertions.  This item was
written in 1998.  This is 2010 and I find these
words to be as true today as I did then.

Forgiver and Forgiven

When the emotional bank account is empty it is hard to forgive injuries.

It is at the same time very rewarding to forgiver and forgiven

To forgive and accept forgiveness.

I wrote this after  looking back at my life after a particularly difficult situation
arose at work.  I was dealing with a problem with an individual that had
gone on for years. I was at the end of my tolerance for that work associate.
His emotional bank account with me was bankrupt.  I was not alone holding
bankrupt accounts. Others working with him had the same feelings. I agonized
over the issues. I even lost sleep over confronting the individual.

When confronted, I chose to use with the specific instances causing the issues
without emotion just facts. It was a one on one meeting.  The result of the
meeting was an amicably working relationship with no further personal issues. 
We are not friends but we were able to continue working closely with each other.

In reviewing the situation from a distance the  two phrases came to me.  Now,
13 years later I testify to the validity of these words.  I am thankful for the road
taken.
