“Each relationship has at its heart, a holy purpose.”
- Doreen Virtue
The relationship with your husband or wife, significant other, mother or father, between children, siblings or other family members is for a holy purpose. Relationships that you form with friends, people you work or socialize with, gather for meditation or spiritual gatherings, yoga, gym or outdoor/sporting events are in your life for a reason.
Some people come and go; some may be around for a lifetime. Some relationships are deeper than others.
Some people bring us true joy, love and companionship and helps us to strengthen our sense of who we are. Others may provoke extreme pain and suffering and contribute to a feeling of a weaker self. They tend to shatter the self-image making us doubt our ability to make healthy decisions and come to good judgement.
Yet all relationships ultimately serve to discover our soul’s purpose.
Upon realization that we are all connected, we begin to appreciate more deeply the blessings of the people that grace our lives. Nothing is by chance and everything happens for a reason.
Growing and healing from our relationships offer the chance to connect with our higher power, trust our inner intuitive self, heal the past, forgive any old hurts and move us to manifestation and growth. The most difficult interactions have the most valuable lessons to teach. Everything, every experience we go through has a lesson and a higher purpose.
It will likely be difficult to decipher why you are going through the pain and hurt at the time you are entrenched, yet finding something to thank the Universe for while you are in the midst will help you transition much more with ease. (A friend or a coach can really be a good ally for this process; someone to talk to that will listen without judgement.) Working through the pain truly is not easy, yet is critical. And even the slightest gratitude in the midst of difficult relationships will allow you to heal faster and find your way back to love. Remember, the most trying relationships are our greatest teachers.
Patience is critical. You will eventually see the forest through the trees and the sun will shine brightly again. You will then realize that it is time to release and let go of those old baggage relationships that have served their purpose and you no longer need. The result? Beautiful, confident self-love, inner peace, positive self-assurance, and serenity.
The bottom line, you cannot find love or happiness through another. We can share true love between us, but we must never rely on anything outside our being to control our power to love. As explained by Buddha, love isn’t defined by human feelings. Love just is.
Love is within us and we cannot attain it from another person. In order to find love, we simply look within. Self-love must first exist within as the ability to share unconditional compassion care and love to all mankind, not just our family and loved ones. Until we are filled with a divine consciousness, our own created self must continually search to find the highest form of love that we know.
