There is so much upheaval in relationships today. There is happiness and aliveness but also pain, drama, conflict, anxiety, depression, anger and all other negative emotions. We seem to be in a roller coaster of emotions, with the negative emotions taking control of our lives. But if we look closely, we can boil down the dysfunction to one thing: there is no space in our relationships which allows us to be who we are. We impose our concepts on each other so there is no true relationship. Our minds and hearts are close.
How can we go beyond the dysfunction and experience the joy of enlightened relationships? We start by observing and watching ourselves and our loved ones without judgment. We don’t try to change “what is” into “what it should be”. We allow each other to be who we are. We open our hearts and minds and welcome space.
We realize that as we move deeper into our relationships, the need for words go away and is replaced by silence. When we become still, we bring an end to duality (good/bad, high/low, happiness/unhappiness) and are able to connect with our loved ones on a deeper level. Out of this current of awareness comes the solution or right answer. This is when change starts to happen.
