A few days ago I came back from errands and met Gay in the kitchen. When we hugged and kissed hello I noticed a wave of bliss/streaming/expansion rush up the front of my body and take me into light swooning. After 32 years of being together, I felt delighted that swooning still occurs regularly and reliably. I wanted to immediately clone the precursors to share with others. How can you ignite, maintain and/or reawaken a higher swoon quotient in your partnerships?
- Commit to expanding your ability to give and receive (especially receive) more love and positive attention every day. We consider this the one problem in relationship and life that makes everything else worthwhile.
If you have developed unique ways of delighting in your partnering, please share your strategies. As the philosopher Tasso said, "Any time not spent on love is wasted." Swoon!
Swoon quotient: the felt experience of gratitude, intimacy, appreciation and sexual feelings all swirling together, or, the tendency to almost fall over in bliss being around your mate.
