The old model of relating is not working anymore—have you noticed? Yes, the divorce rates are high, but the more important issue is the level of dissatisfaction and lack of fulfillment in our relationships with significant others. Much of our dissatisfaction arises from limiting beliefs about our relationships and ourselves. Many of us are operating, consciously or unconsciously, from an outdated model that has many distorted premises at its core. We must discard this old way of being and embrace the emerging paradigm if we want our relationships to thrive in the way they were intended.
You can, and are meant to have, an extraordinary relationship. This may be hard to believe, particularly if you are experiencing difficulty in your relationship right now. But the truth is that we should not settle for anything less. Why should we spend another day of unhappiness in our relationship? Isn’t our wellbeing too important and our life too short for that? Now, before you run off and try to find another partner, let me be clear that I’m speaking about your current relationship. Yes, it is possible to eventually decide that your current partner may not be a good match for what you desire in a relationship, but no matter how problematic your relationship seems right now, it can improve with your conscious effort.
The great news is that you have the power to change your current situation. Let me repeat, YOU have the power to change your situation. This is especially true if both you and your partner are making the effort to improve it. However, even if your partner does nothing, your relationship experience can improve. This is because we as individuals are much more empowered than we commonly believe.
The new frontier for love is The Enlightened Relationship. With it, we will understand that relationships with significant others serve as a wonderful opportunity for us to awaken and discover ourselves as well as our inherent divine love. We will know that we are much more than a physical body and that we have divine reSources within us. We will understand that we are all connected by an unseen energy and that we are more powerful than we have been taught. We will inspire the best in each other as partners. The ideas presented in the Enlightened Relationship are nothing new; they have existed for ages. But the majority of our world has yet to fully apply and live these principles in our relationships. A paradigm shift is no easy undertaking because our assumptions and beliefs are rooted so deeply, but the joy and love we have the potential to experience will make this journey so worthwhile. Trust me!
