Relationships as spiritual practice

Each person with whom life requires us to interact represents a particular set of qualities that we need to shed or acquire in order to become the best version of our possible self.

Our encounters with others are not just about the pleasure or pain we receive from our interactions with them, but about the moral character and spiritual consciousness we develop as a result.

When we embrace our relationships as a form of Sadhana, the irritating people in our lives will still be there, but their ultimate effect on us will always be positive–not positive in the sense that it consistently feels good to be around them, but in the sense that it inevitably moves us forward along our evolutionary path.

At least that’s the way I see it (sometimes).

Cheers,

T.K. Coleman
