Relationships as learning experiences

Spirit tells me that every relationship is a learning experience

In which each participant is both teaching and learning from

The relationship itself and from every participant, inclding

Oneself.

 

Deep or shallow? How far do we dare to go? To see deeply

Is to go deeply into the possible motives and intentions of

The other, or others, and to consider whether they are

Different from or similar to our own.

 

How far will each relationship take us if we allow, or invite it?

How will we change and how will the other, or others change?

And is it worth the effort, or risk?

 

All relationships either stimulate or drain our energy,

As well as affecting other resources, precious or otherwise.

 

Teacher, has our relationship been a learning experience for you?

 

Yes, it has taught me patience.

 

 

 

We are what we seem to be

Spirit tells me that we each seem to need to be, or

To pretend to be, what we need to be.

 

And, we each seem to need to become something other than

What we are, now, or something that we do not yet believe

We are, but desire to become.

 

If we would allow ourselves to relax and let go of our tight hold on

Needing to be what we are not, and allow ourselves to become

What it is we believe we are destined to become, then we might

Discover; then we would discover that we are now what we seem

To be and that it feels comfortable just being what we are, if

We like what we seem to be.

 

It sounds confusing to me.
