The fears that we hold are images formed by the delusioned mind. The sorrows that we experience are like gateways to our soul’s calling. Sorrow is a sign which says that something isnt right. Its not a reaction to life’s happenings. Its a lesson for life’s happenings.
Dependency is not the same as love. Dependency is a manifestation of fear which in turn is a sign of forgetting who we truly are. The remembrance of this truth shifts the idea from needing someone in my life to being in oneness with all. This does not imply that we dont need relations and bonds. This tells us that we are always loved no matter what. Relationships make us aware of the love within us and only those bonds which support this truth are meant to be.
Fear and dependency often masquerade as love and friendship. Returning to the truth liberates us from all these false perceptions.
Being in wrong relationships is a sign of being disconnected from our truth. We settle for less not because we cant have more but because of our own choices. Our connection to universe includes making a choice or choosing a partner or friend who matches our feeling of connection to the universe. Just like to put an equals sign, we need a constant. In the equations of life this equals sign is our connection to the universe.
Relationship strength is directly proportional to our awareness of the love within us.
Relationship strength = Connection to the universe × awareness of the love within us
Even in situations when we are not fully aware of the flowing energy of love within us, we can choose the right partners if we are strongly in connection with the universe.
In the chapters to come, we shall together learn how to develop and strengthen this connection.
