How should I handle this?
Help me, please……
Our dearest is displaying a part of her character once again. It has to do with perfectionism; yes it has. We shall explain:
Our dearest loves to dance; this is a known condition, Dear Ones. Our dearest enjoys movement of any fashion, though, particularly in dance.
We are currently inspiring our dearest to learn the Latin movements. This requires practice; yes it does, Dear Ones.
However, in order to facilitate the enjoyment of dance our dearest requires a willing partner. We have not, as yet, inspired our Dear Heart, Keith, with the same amount of inspiration; leaving a void of inspiration between the two. How is this to be handled; our dearest has asked.
Our response, Dear Ones: There will always be a differential of inspiration, Dear Hearts. Some will be given inspiration in great quantity; whilst others will receive only degrees of the same inspiration. This causes a quandary between the two, Dear Ones, as you can well imagine.
The solution lies in honouring both. For instance, in regard to our dearest’s quandary:
Our dearest will need to practice to the extent that she is inspired, and leave her Dear Heart Keith to join in when he feels inspired.
This is already having a profound effect upon our dearest’s thinking. She now appreciates that she can practice, in her Dear Heart’s presence.
If, we say, if he is inspired to follow suit, so shall it be……
Immediately upon receiving this written advice I turned on the Rumba music and began to practice. Within seconds Keith joined me.
What a wonderful lesson The C.C. had given me! Had Keith not joined me I would have continued practicing on my own (honouring myself), and would have honoured him by not pressuring him to dance.
Some hours later: We, Keith and I, have not long returned home from our Sunday Dance Social. We had, as usual, a wonderful time. Toward the end of the evening, on the dance programme, was a second Rumba. You guessed it! Keith wanted to stay long enough to enjoy yet another Rumba.
