Relationship with a Twist
This article is about relationship, but not necessarily romantic relationships and that is where twist comes in and the opportunity to open our heads and think a little differently about relationship.
The Oxford Dictionary’s definition of relationship is:
The way in which two or more people or things are connected, or the state of being connected.
Spiritually speaking, we are all one. We are never separate from our Source and Source cannot be divided, so we are all connected. Not just with people but with every living thing because Source is the Infinite LIFE of every living thing and that in and of itself gives us a different perspective on relationship.
Not only are we connected to everyone and everything but, because LIFE is constantly expanding and expressing, we are all constantly evolving and so are our relationships.
Nothing alive is static. Change is a constant. So, how do we deal with changing relationships with parents, children, friends, partners, our bodies, ourselves? Are we connected or disconnected? Are we paying attention or are we taking those relationships for granted or trying to keep them the way they have always been because maybe, in their current state, they are not what we want them to be?
What about our relationship with our creativity, talent, abilities or passions? Do we nurture them so that they can flourish or are we demanding of them, or maybe we don’t acknowledge them because we don’t want to appear self-centered or boastful? Every talent or ability we have is the expression of Source. It is very worthwhile to appreciate and nurture them. Even more so to hold sacred and nurture our connection to Source. That is the most important relationship we have, and our experience of life is a direct reflection of it.
“You cannot be separated from that which you are calling God… People hear us say, “Reach for the thought that feels the best.” And they think, “Oh no, I need to listen to what God wants.” But aren’t we talking about the same thing? Aren’t your emotions guiding you to that Connection? And doesn’t the word God just set you off on all kinds of tangents that don’t have anything to do with your relationship with that which is this Eternal Energy of Love that is your Source?” Esther Hicks/Abraham
This is a vast subject and an interesting one to ponder.
