The Love we experience with another, is a reflection of the Love we are. Also, the conflict we project onto relationships, is a reflection of the conflict we have toward our self.
This is the path of relationships, to show us what exists within.
Confusion about relationships, has often been a quest to acquire a someone so the self can feel secure. This leads towards possessiveness and the fear of loss, rather than an opportunity to play in the Love you already are.
There isn’t a right or wrong way in relationships, however there is a way that leads toward suffering, and a way that leads toward joy.
Both are great teachers.
