As an avid observer , I look on as people fall in and out of “love”. Racing hearts soon turn to raging hearts and migraines. Like a game of “hop-scotch”, people jump in and out of “situationships”. The days of getting to know someone has said farewell and departed. Once their social media is stalked , an opinion of the victim is formed and they are treated as they are perceived.
I crossed the busy bus route and proceeded to my client’s house. She is a woman who has lived a full life, so I did a house call. On my way, a demi-god with white hair greeted me. He walked with a cane and I lowered my speed. He asked me “What is the greatest love of all”? I pretended to think for 5 seconds and responded ,”Love of self, is the greatest love.” He looked at me and laughed. He said, no , try again. He answered his own question, he said “Love of God is the greatest love”. I knew that I was right, because I am a goddess.
I asked him to explain. He said he loved God because he trusted God. He said trust is everything. He confessed that he had no doubt that God would take care of him and provide all his needs. I felt the same way about myself.
He said that he has been married for 30 years and it is blissful. He said he and his wife have complete trust. They both value each other and their contribution to the relationship.He was confident that nobody could compare to him and replace him. He said he trusts his wife, just like he trusts God.
He lamented that young couples did not trust each other, he attributed this to the high divorce rate. He said both men and women were insecure and did not value themselves or each other. He told me if his wife walked out the street and saw him chatting with me , she would smile and greet me, with no ill feeling. He turned the corner and went home and I proceeded north to meet my client. I thought about his kind words and he is absolutely right.
Is trust more important than love?
