Wishes are real. They just generally never happen the way you expect them and that’s usually your fault.
For the longest time I got tired of a relationship I was in. The conflict on a verbal level kept inching up higher and higher. After hearing Eckhart Tolle’s comments on relationships and the troubles/conflicts they experience, I found an eerie similarity in my own. The longer this went on, the more my thoughts turned to what kind of a person I would like to spend my time with.
At some point a strong enough image was built and my ‘wish’ was granted. The answer lay 6000 miles away. There are a lot of hurdles to overcome to make something like that work. I always told people that long-distance relationships never work but it seems that I need to qualify that statement. “Long distance relationship only work if they are based on a True thought/desire.” Otherwise it’s just emotions tied up with misplaced mental images.
How else can you possibly explain such things? When you feel a connection that is not just ‘oh my god, he/she’s hot and sexy’. I’ve grown past that stage in my life where it is the driving factor of my partner-making decision. Sure, it helps that he/she is for you but the younger you are, the more likely you chose with your emotions rather than your soul.
