When the right man walks into your life, it changes everything.
It was a random day in the middle of a random month, the 18th to be precise. To be honest, I wasn’t even that keen on being there.
They say it always happens when you’re not looking.
Even though I felt a definite spark and this feeling of coming home, it started out casual. I simply didn’t think about where it could go.
Like I said, I wasn’t looking.
And anyway, when we’d met a couple of years before, I didn’t really feel that it warranted the required investment - even though his energy was undeniable.
But, after six short weeks, something shifted: I realised the potential of what I was looking at. We really could go all the way.
And after another few weeks, I took him into my heart.
This is the story of how I found my guru.
Or my guru found me.
The word guru comes from Sanskrit. It means someone who takes you from the darkness to the light. In Japanese, sensei is the title given to someone who has taken the path before you.
But as I try and explain with definitions, what comes to mind is a quote about God: that those who know God cannot describe him; and only those who don’t, will try.
So I am not going to try.
I am just going to be grateful, and say that of all the hearts in all the towns in all the world, I’m so happy that he chose to walk into mine.
