We can build a relationship…

We can build relationships in order to feel our way home. Build a relationship with our inner voice, our inner knowing, with our trust. Build a relationship with our bodies, with our minds, with our Hearts… Cultivating relationship takes time, it needs space to breathe, it asks for you to show up, to be present and to be willing to meet what is here right now… They need trust, honesty and vulnerability. 

We can build a relationship with our uncomfortable feelings, with our insecurities, our self-judgements, with our doubts, our fears…
We can build relationships with our human family, with the lands where we live, with the plants, the trees, the birds, the insects, the animals. We can build a relationship with the sky above us, with the wind and the rain. We can build a relationship with the Earth below and feel her Heart pulsating through the soles of our feet. 

When we build relationship, when there is a kind of relating, a willingness to get to know the other – what seems as ‘other’ to us, transforms from being an object, into a living, breathing being. A human being, a plant being, a rock being, a tree being, a mountain being, a river being. When we recognise the living being that is in the ‘other’, we are less likely to judge, to oppress or to exclude and more likely to access compassion, understanding and a sense of connection…
I believe that the human heart is like that: compassionate and kind in its nature, longing to connect, open to meet the other and to recognise something unnamable in the other. 

So when we are willing to meet those unwanted, rejected, suppressed parts within ourselves, are willing to get to know our bodies and everything that is alive within our bodies – we are less likely to turn away from our self-suppression and more likely to find peace within ourselves…
