As we journey inward, we may be urged to examine the true nature of our relationships. Seldom do they resemble the photos on greeting cards depicting lovers passionately entwined before a glorious sunset. In real life, our relationships are full of ups and downs, periods of challenge balanced with periods of great joy. If anything, these periods are our greatest teachers.
Our personal journey to awakened living is validated not by being alone, but in relationship with others. Learning how to love, teaches us how to live.
Gentle and timely reminders for the spiritual journey, because sometimes we forget or need a kind nudge back to Center.
