Beautiful thoughts:The challenge of relationships
"It doesn't much signify whom one marries, for one is sure to find out the next morning that it was someone else."
Despite our passion for romantic love, relationships are not the easiest way to find love and peace. They are, however, one of the most effective for finding our blocks.
Relationships naturally bring out into full view our desires, attachments and unconscious programs – our likes, dislikes, belief systems, judgments, compulsions, conformities, etc. Relationships challenge us because they take us deep into thoughts, feelings and experiences we have suppressed for a lifetime. That’s why they provide the very best arena for personal growth! Human relationships are the perfect tool for sanding away our rough edges and getting at the core of divinity within us.We don’t change overnight. Personal growth requires persistence.
