Spirituality Information Journey In The Fields Of Forever Part 45



Gideon knew exactly what I’d like for dinner. There were curries of​ various seafood like grouper and arapaima served with roti. Side dishes of​ chutneys, samosas and island bhajees complimented the steaming rice biryani. in​ the center of​ the table, Jarvis placed a​ bowl filled with succulent guavas, mangoes, sapodillas and papaya.

“Enjoy your dinner,” said Jarvis as​ he left.

“Everything looks good,” I commented, “and the coffee smells heavenly. Thank you, Gideon, this is​ a​ surprise.”

“You and your coffee,” remarked Gideon,“it’s from the Blue Mountains of​ Jamaica. Now let’s see,” he continued as​ he bit into a​ piece of​ bread, “it wasn’t that you didn’t enjoy Kimberly’s company. You certainly did and I’m sure she enjoyed yours, also. The real problem was your fear — fear of​ what a​ relationship might do to​ you. You value your freedom to​ be yourself so highly that anything that seems to​ threaten that freedom is​ quickly avoided. This is​ how you react to​ close relationship situations. It’s neither good nor bad.”

“So that’s all there is​ to​ it? I’m just plain scared of​ getting close to​ anyone?”

“To a​ certain degree, John,” he replied, “but it’s not always quite as​ simple as​ that. You’ve told some of​ your closest associates that one of​ the great benefits of​ your work is​ that you have a​ chance to​ say ‘good-bye’ and move on. a​ part of​ you really enjoys moving on and stay- ing free as​ the wind blows. Many times you are alone; rarely are you lonely. This basically has been your choice.”

“What we’re trying to​ tell you, John,” added Marla, “is that it’s OK to​ have a​ relationship. It’s also OK not to​ have a​ relationship.Either or​ neither is​ fine. a​ relationship between two people is​ really about you and not the other person. Relationships, committed or​ non-committed, meaningful or​ meaningless, just reflect who you are. Enjoy your relationships; don’t analyze them to​ death. Even fleeting ones, such as​ with Kimberly, create excitement.”
