For the ego, misery is a far better choice than the Mystery, especially when it comes to relationships. Centering our entire being in the heart of our experience as a Witnessing awareness helps change this orientation and has the potential to end the cycle of our suffering.
How’s it done? The minute our lives are no longer bound by grasping, we can consciously and spontaneously become radiant expressions of the Infinite. In our bodies this feels like peace and ease. Integrating this peace into this moment in time helps us rewrite the stories of our past and also sets us up for glorious future opportunities. Seeing through the distortions that come from our clinging to our past take us from blame into forgiveness. Seeing through the distortions that come from our clinging to future goals takes us from closure into openness. Merging both forgiveness and openness allows for us to live in awakened ways, thus supporting a conscious and continuous apprehension of the very mystery we’ve always avoided.
Bringing this kind of presence into our love lives shows us how to be in relationship without grasping which invariably yields an awakening to a deeper kind of love.
