To My Son

You are a very special person with many gifts that other people don't have. You're brave and strong and talented. Many weaker people are drawn to this, and you will find it hard to resist their need for help, or shelter within the circle of your light.
But be careful not to mistake wanting to help someone, for love. Feeling sympathy, or empathy for a weaker, less able person, isn't love. I don't mean that you shouldn't care for these people and help them where you can, but that is a different relationship from love.
You can't love a person you can't trust. Think about what that would be like, to live your life partnered to a person you can't trust. How would you leave them with your children? Your belongings? Think what a heavy load that would become. Think what damage that would do to your relationships with friends and family who are important to you.
For love to succeed and flourish you need to find a person who holds a balance with you. Someone who has an equal personal power and can contribute equally to your relationship. I don't mean money or belongings. I'm not talking about worldly things, but about spiritual things.
It won't be easy to find someone who equals and balances you, because you are such a strong person, with such a beaming light. But you will find that person eventually, and it will be well worth the wait. In the meantime, continue to work on yourself as you are, and grow the beautiful person you are becoming.

mmm ... no not so far. Though I may at some stage in the future.

At the moment he's very much in love with someone I think is probably not that good for him.

I don't think he'd appreciate me telling him so right at the moment.
