Does it feel like you're floating with the natural flow of the river in your love life, or does it mostly feel like a long, bumpy trip fighting your way upstream?
When we are operating from the level of our ego, we live in fear, trying to protect ourselves from change and loss. We're focused on our own needs, and we ask questions like, 'why is this happening to me?' or 'why are you doing this to me?' The ego's function is to protect us as individuals; to look at all things from the perspective of me. Our ego says, 'I'm not you. I'm different from you, and if I'm not careful you're going to hurt me.' It's no surprise then that separateness and conflict become the order of the day.
In contrast to the viewpoint of the ego, we can choose in our love relationships to operate from the level of our higher self. Our higher self says, 'I am you. And if something is not working for you, it's not working for me.'
Once we look at our partners through the eyes of Oneness, we slowly start to open up to the perfection of our union. We begin to breathe more easily, to go with the flow of things, trusting that the river will take us exactly where we need to go. By stepping outside of our personal expectations and judgments about how our partners should act differently, or what our relationship should look like, we gain access to the many possibilities that exist for us to grow as a couple.
There is a unique and beautiful design for each of our relationships hidden behind the veil of our sometimes turbulent experiences. All we have to do is surrender, trust... and flow.
Such is the Beauty of Love.
