Black bees on the clover-heads drowsily clinging,
Where tall, feathered grasses and buttercups sway,
And all through the fields a white sprinkle of daisies,
Open-eyed at the setting of day.
-Abba Gould Woolson (1838-1921)

THE CHALLENGE OF RELATIONSHIPS
“It doesn’t much signify whom one marries, for one is sure to find out the next morning that it was someone else.”
— Samuel Rogers
Despite our passion for romantic love, relationships are not the easiest way to find love and peace. They are, however, one of the most effective for finding our blocks.
Relationships naturally bring out into full view our desires, attachments and unconscious programs – our likes, dislikes, belief systems, judgments, compulsions, conformities, etc. Relationships challenge us because they take us deep into thoughts, feelings and experiences we have suppressed for a lifetime. That’s why they provide the very best arena for personal growth!
“Human relationships are the perfect tool for sanding away our rough edges and getting at the core of divinity within us.”
— Eknath Easwaran

“What on earth did I ever do to deserve so much?”
And we’re usually, like, “Dude, you visualized.”

“Nothing is so contagious as enthusiasm; it moves stones, it charms brutes. Enthusiasm is the genius of sincerity, and truth accomplishes no victories without it.”
Enthusiasm is really spirit bubbling through us, that’s why it’s so contagious! It is attractive, magnetic even – people around can’t help but get a lift from all that positive energy emanating forth. Enthusiasm feels good. It is real, and natural, and life affirming.
