A couple of months ago I had to wait about an hour for an appointment so I thought I'd make the most of the time by channelling some soul-ful thoughts and ideas about enlightened relationships. I just found these notes again, and wanted to share them with you...
Being in a committed relationship is a way of finding relief from the pain of separation we feel from being separated from our Source.
Here in this illusion of separation, amongst all this forgetfulness, we see another person as the ticket back to our 'Garden of Eden', as a way to get back home again to a feeling of complete-ness.
What if we could feel our absolute completeness now, without needing another to spark that feeling within us. What if our marriage was with our Source, the source of all love, so we didn't feel needy about getting that love from someone else.
What if our ultimate relationship was with Source, and all other relationships beautifully complemented that, but were not essential to our feeling as though we have a secure link to love.
What if we felt secure in love first, and then found a partner to share that love with. And when that relationship changed, we were still secure in our feeling of love from within, from Source.
What if we graciously accepted love into our lives from our Source and then found that that love was mirrored in the physical world by physical expressions of love from others, and we could abundantly thrive in that, without fear of it leaving - knowing there is a limitless flow of love.
What if we all knew how sacred, how loved, how honoured we all are in the eyes of Source. What if we could see others like this and allow them the freedom to live their truest expression of themselves, even if that expression was not our preference. We felt secure enough in our own Source of Love that we didn't need them to change.
What if two human beings, both totally connected to their own Source of Love, could come together in ecstatic union and create something even more magical and meaningful than they could ever have done apart.
Are you in an enlightened relationship? What do you have to share about the subject? Leave me a comment...
