It is difficult to put into words what I experience when I am with both of you. What I feel in your presence is a kind of regenerative, healing love. The love that you both share radiates out in to the world and brings warmth and healing to those around you as well. Truth, the real kind, always shines through in the end, and I can feel when I am with you the Truth of your love for each other, and the way it stands in the world.
I’ve known Dave Gold for ten years, we are spiritual brothers so to speak. We started meeting more frequently after Dave met Juli, and I’ve witnessed their love deepen in ways once unimaginable. I sense a taste of the future in their relationship and that many of us will find relationships like theirs. May it be so!
Being a friend of Dave’s for over 12 years, I can say that there once was a time when he was a man who seemed bewildered by love. The backwoods zen and self-denial enlightenment teachings he had adopted in previous years made love something obscure and unattainable, perhaps even undesirable and a useless distraction. Dave was still a loving man; he just didn’t seem to grock the depth and power of truly unconditional love…the type of love that moves this universe and allows for unspeakable miracles. Something incredible happened a few years ago…Dave met Juli. Their relationship developed in the folds of mystery and wonder. The man who was my friend, the logical lawyer and self-denying seeker with no use for something as trivial as love, changed deeply…he KNEW Love, and became David, the Beloved.
I have witnessed David and Juli face turmoil, trials, and tribulations in life, family, finances…the realms we all struggle in, and they have triumphed beautifully! The triumph is not in the outcome of individual situations; it is in and through their love, and their commitment to Love. Together, they have discovered the truth of Love Unimaginable; Love that is absolute, complete, unwavering, and untouchable.. This is the Love that is always and ever present, immediately available and accessible to all who are willing to surrender to Love Unimaginable!
I have watched Dave and Juli, two very wonderful beings, work for years to grow in love and wisdom. They have utilized every tool they could find, and every challenge and opportunity that life brought them, to nourish the deep love and connection they now share. And like my own great teachers, they chose to learn and grow from everything that came their way.
