The purpose of a relationship is not to make you happy. It’s to make you conscious. To wake you up more and more fully to the essence of who you truly are and to express it in this world.
There are ecstatically joyful moments in relationships. There are painful moments as well.
Can we commit to take everything together as an opportunity to learn and grow, evolve in our consciousness, and deepen in wisdom together?
Eckhart Tolle wrote in The Power of Now: “As you may have noticed, relationships are not here to make you happy or fulfilled. If you continue to pursue the goal of salvation through a relationship, you will be disillusioned again and again. But if you accept that the relationship is here to make you conscious instead of happy, then the relationship will offer you salvation, and you will be aligning yourself with the higher consciousness that wants to be born into this world.”
With deep presence and awareness
This most subtle moment
And every challenge
Is an opportunity to awaken in consciousness
And deepen into a profound love that transcends form .. and includes it.
