Consider this: Imagine that you’re single and you’d REALLY like to be in a committed intimate partnership with someone you adore and that you feel you’d be SO grateful to spend the rest of your life with. Let’s say that’s the deep desire of your heart.
You yearn for that clear connection with a soulmate.
And so, to get to that, you decide you’re going to read relationship books until you get there.
And you’re going to listen to relationship CD’s.
And you’ll watch videos on youtube.
But you’re not going to do anything towards actually meeting a potential mate, you’re just going to study up on it.
That seems pretty crazy, doesn’t it?
Yet, that’s precisely what many people have told me that they’ve done for most of their lives. They are learning about Spirit, but they don’t actually feel like they have an intimate relationship.
One of the most common things I hear from people in class with me is they are so grateful they stopped just studying spiritual books and started actually having an active practice and relationship with Spirit.
When you have a relationship with someone, a deep intimate relationship, you recognize their voice in a crowd. You know their vibration and you can feel them coming. That’s how it is with Spirit when we’re in a committed relationship.
Sometimes people are afraid that if they were in a committed relationship with Spirit, the demands would be too much. I used to feel that way, but consider what Jesus said according to the Gospel of Matthew:
Come unto me,
all ye that labour and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you,
and learn of me;
for I am meek and lowly in heart:
and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
For my yoke is easy,
and my burden is light. Matthew 11:28-30
My yoke is easy – the commitment is easy.
My burden is Light – as in the Light that lighteth up every man, woman and child in this world.
That sounds pretty darn good to me!
And, I must share that I have found this to be the truth of it.
The deeper I go, the greater the commitment, the lighter I feel, the easier it is.
A relationship is a relationship.
Whether it’s with Spirit or your family.
Sometimes it feels like a roller coaster ride.
Whether you’re screaming or laughing depends on your perspective.
Connecting from the heart.
Sharing time together.
That’s what strengthens a relationship.
Honesty. Transparency. Compassion.
Every day offers an opportunity.
