Over the last few weeks we have talked about the mind, the frequency and going beyond the small I, to really connect with ourselves on a level which gives us the bigger picture of life. Let’s apply this to our relationships.
We all are lonely and also have a longing. A longing to form loving, intimate relationships with passionate, deep, connections, at every level in our life. To understand this we need to examine, where does this longing or need come from? What is the reality or the Maya of these feelings?
The impulse to form relationships comes from our soul or spirit. The spirit is longing to know itself. We are not just longing for a relationship with someone else. We know, we can be in a crowded room full of people but still feel alone. We are longing for a deep connection with ourselves, our soul. The soul is considered a thing, with a weight just less than 1 once. It is the barometer in us that gives us our purpose in life and makes us feel in harmony with existence. This is why when you practice Kundalini Yoga and meditation you start to get this cosy and fulfilling feeling. You do not even realise what it is, but you feel it. Just this feeling of deep connection with your heart beat, body and breath makes you feel really good.
The feelings you get when you connect to another person is similar, you are also trying to connect with that person’s soul. That is why when you have a deep, fulfilling relationship, a merger with another person, you feel so good because once again it is allowing you to experience the infinite in them. It is when you go back to being your personality and they become their personality that there are conflicts again. If you can see yourself and them as soul, you can move beyond your need to fight and be right.
This week sit with yourself and start to develop a real and beautiful relationship with yourself, not because of the things you have or the personality you are, just because you can feel your breath moving in and out of your nostrils, your heart beat, the feeling of air touching your skin, etc. Then connect to this subtle life force energy in nature, your partner, friends, family and colleagues. See through their personalities, outside projections to the heart and soul which resides inside you and them.
