November 17, 2020--Relationship as a Spiritual Path
One of the paradoxes of relationship
is that we give our power away to others
in order to learn to honor ourselves more completely.
We become co-dependent with others
in order to learn how to have better boundaries.
We blame others so that we can learn
to be gentle with ourselves
and forgive our own mistakes.
It is all a set-up.
We look for love and happiness through others
to learn that we can find love and happiness
only in our own hearts and minds.
Being in a relationship helps us learn to stand alone.
The “We” is an incubator for the “I,” or True Self.
When the True Self is actualized by both people,
the spiritual purpose of the partnership is fulfilled.
