Beyond Marriage…part one

Before anything else I really want to say “Happy Birthday” to ‘a really good friend of mine’.   He is spontaneous, charismatic and a seeker of knowledge.  He has all the qualities of a true warrior; discipline, strength of mind and body, ability, courage and loyalty, to name a few.   He is limitless and forever pushing the boundaries of what life has to offer.  He is able to read people intuitively.  He is not a man who will fall prey to women who think they can get what they want with a simple batting of their eyelashes or sexual manipulation. He is far too intelligent for that.  A free spirit with wings that keep developing so he can soar above humanity and change the world by living as an example.  He has true greatness inside that he lets out in small doses for those open to it.  Scott is the most incredible man I know.  He is an evolved human being who has always been my Best Friend through pretty much everything.  Our Friendship is unbreakable!!  Happy Birthday Scott !  You’re  amazing, to say the least! xoIt's my Birthday !!

Now here is an excerpt from a novel I am working on called…

Beyond Marriage...part one  by Tracy Westerholm

The feeling of being out of control and not knowing.  The feeling you get when you first meet someone is so powerful.  When you first catch that sparkle in their eye.  They reach inside your soul and touch you with theirs.  Your entire body changes and you feel every cell come alive.  It’s as if they have complete control over you.  You get jittery and feel cold.

Sometimes we just get a glimpse into the window of their soul and walk away afraid of looking back.  Afraid of what?  You can’t deny these incredible feelings.  It’s an energy that is felt by both.  Your heart flutters, your knees go weak.  You’re nervous beyond belief.  Just being near that persons chemistry drives you to a place we all want to go.  Passionate love!  It’s meant to be out of control!  You can’t control it, that is what is so incredible about it.  Passion

To lose control and let it happen is so difficult for us.  If we did,  I think more of us would be happier, passionate souls in this very planned life we all live.  We need to break free of what is expected of us and get rid of the obligations we put on ourselves and have others put upon us.  We need to do what makes us more in tune  with our natural instincts.

We all want it more than anything else but are afraid of letting go of traditions that have been passed down from generations before us.  We are not living the life we are meant to unless we have the courage to adjust and move forward with what comes from deep inside each one of us.  We need to ask ourselves “What do I want?”  ” Am I being true to myself?”  These are questions I have had at some point in my life.  I’m sure you have too.

If we are really true to ourselves and honest about what we want and need, life would be more fulfilling  and much simpler.  We need to slow down and have eye contact with other souls who are open to that unique connection.  Our lives are so busy and full that we don’t see anymore.  We can’t connect with others if the connection has been lost in the process.  To experience this for yourself try to be open to others and really look into their eyes.  The powerful connections you will feel will bring you into the moment and make you realize there is more out there if you simply open your eyes to it.

  1. The partial article on ” Beyond Marriage ” is absolutely brilliant ! Even the guys should understand what Tracy is stating here…….If only we could connect with each other the way we were designed to……….Can’t wait for the Novel ! What a fantastic way of explaining the true ” Bare Bones ” feelings of the ultimate connection……..

  2. Really, it’s all about staying in touch and communication. Listening to one another and being heard and feeling like you still matter.
    I’m looking forward to reading the follow ups, Tracy!

  3. thank you very much for such a gift it will last me many lifetimes. i have read your article many many times now and i still get more out of it each and every time. you are a remarkable person and beautifull in so many ways . i love you and will forever.

  4. This entire piece is very moving, Tracy. I especially like the following lines:

    “You’re nervous beyond belief. Just being near that persons chemistry drives you to a place we all want to go. Passionate love! It’s meant to be out of control! You can’t control it, that is what is so incredible about it.”

    Great choice of photo as well. One of my favorite flicks along with ‘A Walk to Remember’. It doesn’t matter how many times I watch those two movies, I still get choked up.

    Life is about feeling, and when anyone or anything forces us to feel as deeply as you describe so wonderfully in this piece, you shouldn’t try to fight it.
