Our connections with those close to us provide such fertile ground for growth, for it is in relationships that many of us finally come to know ourselves.
The process of relating intimately asks us to define who we are, be who we are, and then to use the unfolding joys and challenges as gifts offering us even greater self-knowledge, clarity, wholeness and spiritual growth. The building of a loving relationship or the understanding and healing of an abusive one is one of the most powerful spiritual teachings available on the planet today.
