In Spiritual Partnership “we come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.” Sam Keen

Love really is everything it’s cracked up to be. You just have to remember it’s not always spiritual peaks: sometimes it means having to clean up the messes. Growing together, developing a more passionate bond of friendship, and continuously falling in love again and again with the same person—this is what defines the truth of love. It’s important for us to connect and talk with our loved ones, letting them know you hear them, see them, and appreciate them in the midst of your daily routines.

When you two have a tussle, attempt to remember that what is coming up for you is something that has been denied within yourself. In Spiritual Partnerships we look within, not without, for the change of heart. If you are unable to find resolve within, it’s futile to pursue the change somewhere else. Mother Teresa said, “If you judge people, you have no time to love them.” Stop pouting, forgive your loved one and yourself, and get on with loving. Get back to supporting each other’s dreams and bring the spice back into your life.

Spiritual Contemplation: Where have your concepts of love gotten in your way of experiencing love? How can looking within yourself lead you to be a greater lover of life?

Affirmation: I love to love with my partner!
