We began discussing life in general and noted that there are so many people who live in fear. I am one of them, I admit. I have lived in situations that were not the best simply because i seemed powerless to change. The situation was not “bad enough” to allow me to let go. That is what it amounts to. Our society establishes rules on relationships. Whether it is familial by birth or by marriage. When we do not fit into these rules judgements are made about our behavior. If you look at mankind as simply a species, we are not monogamous. Some animals are, but humans are not. We can encounter a variety of encounters with others. There is not a lifetime mating ritual and behavior for humans. While we are not a monogamous species, we are socially expected to be that way. It goes against our very nature.
My friend, who is an intuitive healing practitioner and uses energy to help her in her practice, and I were discussing those very aspects of human interaction as she was viewing my aura, my energy, and my aspects for the future as it related to my creative work environment. She then saw energy that we had only discussed. She saw the scope of emotions attached to the friendship and we began a deeper discussion.
I work from a spiritual aspect that urges people to change their viewpoint about events and situations in their life so they can become their “best self.” It was with this in mind that we began the discussion of my life and the place that some of my friends had in it. She saw energy that was very deep in scope and very loving. The problem was that this deep relationship defied being defined. It was real but it was on one of those “lines we don’t cross.” If people were allowed to go into and out of defined relationships at will, they could establish different relationships with different purposes. We would have friendships, close friendships, love affairs, marriages, and other indefinable relationship that might prove to be very unique.
Many marriages, for example, work and work quite well but the passion is gone. How wonderful it would be if we could find and enjoy the passion with others yet still keep the relationship that was a partnership to raise children intact. That does not happen as our society is configured. It is an “either/or” situation. It could be win / win for all parties involved if society were more understanding of the nature of humans.
It all boils down to being true to yourself. Any relationship, no matter how wonderfully it began, can become a neutral zone where partners benignly exist and remain to raise the children. This is sad when this happens because both parties have lost, not only passion, but the ability to pass that onto their child. A passion for life only exists when we remain true to ourselves. In 2018, make it a point to remain true to yourself and embrace passion as one of the most important aspects of life. It matters little to have a long life if it is spent existing rather than living in a way to gain the most out of that life you have been given.
