Relationship

 

What you meet in another being is the projection of your own evolution.

Ram Dass

You and I will be together till the universe dissolves.

Rumi

Important encounters are planned by the souls long before the bodies see each other.

Paulo Coelho

If we want to support each other’s inner lives, we must remember a simple truth: the human soul does not want to be fixed, it wants simply to be seen and heard. If we want to see and hear a person’s soul, there is another truth we must remember: the soul is like a wild animal – tough, resilient, and yet shy. When we go crashing through the woods shouting for it to come out so we can help it, the soul will stay in hiding. But if we are willing to sit quietly and wait for a while, the soul may show itself.

Parker J Palmer, from The Courage to Teach

Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.

Rumi

My Most Important Relationship Is With My Source… There is no relationship of greater importance to achieve than the relationship between you, in your physical body, right here and now, and the Soul/Source/God from which you have come. If you tend to that relationship, first and foremost, you will then, and only then, have the stable footing to proceed into other relationships. Your relationship with your own body; your relationship with money; your relationship with your parents, children, grandchildren, the people you work with, your government, your world… will all fall swiftly and easily into alignment once you tend to this fundamental, primary relationship first.

Abraham-Hicks, from the book The Vortex, Where the Law of Attraction Assembles All Cooperative Relationships

You can have a relationship with anything or anyone. It’s All God.

Annie Zalezsak (April 2, 2012)

For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It never was between you and them anyway.

Mother Teresa

The key is to keep company only with people who uplift you, whose presence calls forth your best.

Epictetus

We are one, after all, you and I, together we suffer, together exist, and forever will recreate each other.

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

For a community to be whole and healthy, it must be based on people’s love and concern for each other.

Millard Fuller

All the advice you ever gave your partner is for you to hear.

Byron Katie

If you judge people, you have no time to love them.

Mother Teresa

Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean.

Ryunosuke Satoro

Compassion automatically invites you to relate with people because you no longer regard people as a drain on your energy.

Chogyam Trungpa

My Most Important Relationship Is With My Source… There is no relationship of greater importance to achieve than the relationship between you, in your physical body, right here and now, and the Soul/Source/God from which you have come. If you tend to that relationship, first and foremost, you will then, and only then, have the stable footing to proceed into other relationships. Your relationship with your own body; your relationship with money; your relationship with your parents, children, grandchildren, the people you work with, your government, your world… will all fall swiftly and easily into alignment once you tend to this fundamental, primary relationship first.

Abraham-Hicks

Maybe the point is to give yourself the affection and attention you crave. Being alone doesn’t equal being lonely. I would venture to guess that you can feel as lonely in a relationship as you can when you're not in one. You may be satisfied or tricked by the illusion of someone being there (and therefore thinking that must mean you’re not lonely). We feel lonely when we feel disconnected within ourselves. You can make yourself feel connected to the world, nature, anything, anyone, and end loneliness. Being alone is one thing, and you may not have control over that. But being lonely, you can shift that. We are all connected. If you choose to emotionally isolate yourself, well, then you can expect to be lonely.

Annie Zalezsak, 21 May 2009

Sometimes relationships get ripe, and if you don’t pluck them off the tree, they will rot and shrivel.

Annie Zalezsak, 9 June 2009

Projection: I can’t admit how I feel so I will imagine that you feel it.

Deepak Chopra (about Deepak Chopra)

It’s ever so much more satisfying to get into a blissful place and attract a blissful person and live blissfully hereafter than to be in a negative place and attract a negative partner and then try to get happy from that negative place.

Abraham-Hicks, from the workshop in Los Angeles, CA on Sunday, February 2, 1997

The whole idea of compassion is based on a keen awareness of the interdependence of all these living beings, which are all part of one another, and all involved in one another.

Thomas Merton

The people with whom you work reflect your own attitude. If you are suspicious, unfriendly and condescending, you will find these unlovely traits echoed all about you. But if you are on your best behavior, you will bring out the best in the persons with whom you are going to spend most of your waking hours.

Beatrice Vincent

Let your love propel your beloveds into the world – and into the full experience of who they are. In this you will have truly loved.

from Conversations With God, Book 1, by Neale Donald Walsch

Love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking outward together in the same direction.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Love is but the discovery of ourselves in others, and the delight in the recognition.

Alexander Smith

We love purely when we release other people to be who they are.

from A Return to Love by Marianne Williamson

And I, who looked only for God, found thee.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning

You don't have to earn or deserve love. You are love. Loving is never about how others treat you. It is always about how you are treating yourself.

from Fearless Loving: 8 Simple Truths That Will Change the Way You Date, Mate and Relate by Rhonda Britten (about Rhonda Britten)

But the love of the soul is love supreme. It is love in our spiritual essence and of our eternal belonging. In this deep love we ascend above our emotions – how we feel, what’s troubling us – and into the realm of mystical, non-material essence, the realm of the ecstatic.

For in our souls, we are all warp and weft of the one great seamless cloth, woven together of all that we have been, all that we shall be – our victories and majesties and sorrows, our tragedies and grand heroic moments. In the soul’s love we sense far within us, as if written in faint, faded ink on the ancient notebooks of our genes, that we have all been all things - both male and female, parent and child, abuser and abused, villager and king. To behold one another through this great encompassing love, love indivisible, love uncompromising, brilliant, radiant and immense, is to behold the whole of human history, the face of God, in a single human being’s eyes.

from Heart & Soul, by Daphne Rose Kingma

The best thing parents can do for their children is to love each other.

Unknown

You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.

Buddha

Make a personal decision to be in love with the most beautiful, exciting, worthy person ever – you.

Then and only then will the world love you.

The Daily Guru

Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you will help them become what they are capable of becoming.

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

It is not our purpose to become each other; it is to recognize each other, to learn to see the other and honor him for what he is.

Hermann Hesse

Love one another but make not a bond of love, let there be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone.

Kahlil Gibran

The people with whom you work reflect your own attitude. If you are suspicious, unfriendly and condescending, you will find these unlovely traits echoed all about you. But if you are on your best behavior, you will bring out the best in the persons with whom you are going to spend  most of your waking hours.

Beatrice Vincent

In a world where the computer replaces human encounter and psychology replaces religion, it is no wonder that there is an obsession with relationship. Unfortunately, however, ‘relationship’ has become an empty centre around which our lonely hunger forages for warmth and belonging. Much of the public language of intimacy is hollow and its incessant repetition only betrays the complete absence of intimacy. Real intimacy is a sacred experience. It never exposes its secret trust and belonging to the voyeuristic eye of a neon culture. Real intimacy is of the soul, and the soul is reserved.

from Anam Cara, Spiritual Wisdom from the Celtic World (p39), by John O’Donohue

What we know about individuals, no matter how rich the details, will never give us the ability to predict how they will behave as a system. Once individuals link together they become something different ... Relationships change us, reveal us, evoke more from us. Only when we join with others do our gifts become visible, even to ourselves.

Margaret Wheatley and Myron Kellner-Rogers

Let the world unfold without always attempting to figure it all out. Let relationships just be, since everything is going to stretch out in Divine order. Don’t try so hard to make something work – simply allow. Don’t always toil at trying to understand your mate, your children, your parents, your boss, or anyone else because the Tao is working at all times.

Wayne Dyer (about Wayne Dyer)

Are we not formed, as notes of music are,
For one another, though dissimilar?

Percy Bysshe Shelley

Only through our connectedness to others can we really know and enhance the self. And only through working on the self can we begin to enhance our connectedness to others.

Harriet Goldhor Lerner

All relationships in our lives are a reflection of the most important relationship which is the one we have with ourselves. We can only know ourselves through relationships.

Daphne Whitehouse
