Being Naked

Relationships are often misunderstood to be a simple commitment between two people; a dedication to each other with a sense of belonging to one another. Unfortunately, that kind of limited perspective breeds expectations, possessiveness and disappointment, and it reeks of ownership, greed, ignorance, and selfish desire that often leaves us alone feeling the deepest, darkest, negative emotions. I often analyze couples in their “relationship,” and what I just described is 99.99% of the relationships that I observe. I see a very sick pattern here that is counterproductive to the entire human species.

A healthy relationship is an agreement between two people to forge a partnership in support each others’ aspirations, fundamental growth, and spiritual practices. It is a vow to encourage each others’ dedication, devotion, and destiny while remaining free from attachment, or expectations, yet full of caring and compassion. A healthy relationship is also based on unconditional love, not one where your need is to possess. Although you put plenty of “heart” into it, you lose nothing by giving it away. If each person is equally dedicated to inspire, create, awaken, and enrich the lives of others, then there is no hidden agenda. It is far less important what one receives from the other as what one can give. Intimacy would suddenly surpass warmth and tenderness to also include patience, vulnerability, honesty, active listening, understanding, connection, and unwavering trust. A healthy relationship is also, a collaboration of sorts: two peaceful warriors spiritually supporting one another on their individual journeys to spread love and passion. There is a healing power inherent in this kind of union, and it is capable of profound transformation for both people. It is an incredible opportunity to actually practice what you learn; from non-violent communication to listening, resolve, appreciation, purpose, and mutuality. May we all close the gap between what we believe, and how we react to one another in the world.
