Relationships can be tough, particularly of the human kind.
Here’s a simple Truth:
Love flows and opens. Fear struggles and contracts.
If I’m feeling open, then I’m acting from Love. If I’m feeling contracted, then from Fear.
If my life flows, then I’m on course. If it’s a struggle, then I’m not.
According to Vedanta (according to Deepak Chopra), there are two symptoms of enlightenment: A lack of worry, and an increase in synchronicity.
The open, flowing nature of unconditional Love explains the lack of worry.
Since my main squeeze is TaoGodHer (and She always acts from Love), this makes my life incredibly easy and stress-free. When in doubt, all I have to do is a quick gut-check (Am I feeling open or am I feeling contracted?) and I get instant feedback.
Contrast this stress-free relationship with the chaotic (sometimes breezy, sometimes tumultuous) energy of most human relationships.
For the Mystic in a human relationship, not only do they have to gut-check their own motivations (open or contracted), but they have to guess at their partner’s motivations too: Is their partner acting from Love? or from Fear?
Lucky for you, here’s another simple Truth:
STRESS in any relationship (human or otherwise) means someone is acting from Fear.
