Relationships – The energies and directions for now are continuing to evolve around yesterday’s reflection on self-esteem with regard to relationships…read on…
Someone asked Eckhart Tolle: Is it not true that you need to have a good relationship with yourself and love yourself before you can have a fulfilling relationship with another person?
His response was: If you cannot be at ease with yourself when you are alone, you will seek a relationship to cover up your unease. You can be sure that the unease will then reappear in some other form within the relationship and you will probably hold your partner responsible for it.
All you really need to do is accept this moment fully. You are then at ease in the here and now and at ease with yourself.
But do you need to have a relationship with yourself at all? Why can’t you just be yourself? When you have a relationship with yourself, you have split yourself into two: “I” and “myself,” subject and object. The mind-created duality is the root cause of all unnecessary complexity, of all problems and conflict in your life. In the state of enlightenment, you are yourself – “you” and “yourself” merge into one. You do not judge yourself, you do not feel sorry for yourself, you are not proud of yourself, you do not love yourself, you do not hate yourself and so on. The split caused by self-reflective consciousness is healed. The curse removed. There is no “self” that you need to protect, defend or feed anymore. When you are enlightened, there is one relationship that you no longer have: the relationship with yourself. Once you have given that up, all your other relationships will be love relationships.
Let your mantra for be: I accept this moment fully, I AM at ease in the here and now with whatever is and I process this information...And So It Is!!!
