at EVERY stage of the relationship

Most of us yearn to 'belong', so we often seek companionship in order simply to feel connected. But, in truth, we are *already* connected in this web of life, so just why is it that we so often seem to need another being to complete us?

And, once we do find someone possibly to share our lives with, we tend to hurt one another simply by living out our respective life truths. Ideally, we should come to see our partner as a complement --- someone who brings out the very best qualities in ourselves, and someone for whom we can return the favor. Potential ignites potential.

True Spiritual love requires openness and trust at every stage. This level of openness will allow each partner the freedom required to develop independently, so that ultimately, together, two beings become a single whole.

I have learned that self-reliance is only an achievement if it allows you the time and space to give and experience more. Otherwise, it is an empty destination...

Also, dependence in a relationship can be quite an achievement if there is total equanimity, where an equal exchange of the Spirit is shared. Otherwise, it becomes debilitating and weakening...
