What is it about relationships that brings anguish?
The soul, cognizant of its totality, recognizes all as equal; divine creations empowered by Love. The ego, having incomplete understanding, needs to feel ‘special’. The soul prods the ego into a relationship, using the power of physical attraction. The ego is lured, as spirit recognizes predefined soul contract.
Relationships serve as vital mirrors, reflecting our inner beauty as the strengths we admire in the other. They also reveal our flaws through the blemishes we dislike in the other. Each relationship is a bond with one’s self, and the perfect relationship is one that provides the opportunities to recognize ourselves, completely. The Law of Attraction teaches that ‘like attracts like’; we cannot be the opposite of our partners. This likeness forges a connection between the souls, while the persona differences encourage spiritual growth.
