… to relationship.
We are conditioned to think that “relationship” means, above all, romance.
the One Soul mate life partner happier ever after thing
the love/marriage relationship on a pedestal above all else
We are conditioned to believe that Relationships can be sinked
can be compartmentalized into convenient boxes:
partner, kids, family, friends, acquaintances, pets, strangers
My relationship with myself
When the reality is
we are nature and nature is us
we are the universe and the universe is us
Everything is relationship.
Nothing is not relationship.
Relationship is our problem, and without understanding relationship, merely to be active is to produce further confusion, further misery. Action is relationship: to be is to be related. Do what you will withdraw -to the mountains, sit in a forest – you cannot live in isolation. You can live only in relationship, and as long as relationship is not understood, there can be no right action. Right action comes in understanding relationship, which reveals the process of oneself. Self-knowledge is the beginning of wisdom; it is a field of affection, warmth, and love, therefore a field rich with flowers.~J. Krishnamurti
