Relationships

I am who I am and that is that,

I am who you are looking back,

You are who I am, can you imagine that?

-Guru Singh Khalsa

Do you know what makes relationships so fun? Knowing that the other person is simply a reflection of you. There is no ‘other person’. Which means, in essence, we are playing with ourselves. Ha-ha!

Relationships are mirrors, reflecting the current status of our relationship to Self.

When I am disconnected with myself, so are my connections to others.  Likewise, when I am fully in my own space, my connection to others couldn’t be better.

Everything is feedback.

What I experience through my relationships reveal if I am lying to myself or if I am living authentically; if I am giving myself away or if I value myself. This awareness is a gift, for it allows me to change something in myself when I don’t like what I see in the other person, or in my connection with the other person. It is like realizing that I am in a dream, and then finding that I can control what I do in my dream. Taking control of our dreams gets easier with practice. Same of our lives. Anyway, I am all that I have in my control, though my thoughts and actions seem to ripple out and affect change in everything else around me. More feedback! Sometimes I like what I see, and sometimes I don’t. On the other hand, to try and change another person is like trying to comb my hair through the mirror… gotta laugh at myself for trying.

Where Am I?
