When we think of the word “relationship” most of think about being in relationship wtih people, whether it be family, friends, loved ones, intimates, etc. And what I am becoming keenly aware of as I get older, is my relationship to the non-people stuff in my life. For example… money, love, the world around me, etc. What is my relationship to all of these things is a fascinating place to look.
We think they are all just topics that we are trying to manage and change. And yet, if we think about them in terms of a being in a “relationship” with them, it changes the game completely. If I do not realize I can have a consciously created relationship to money, then I am just victimized by how much I have at any given moment. If I do not realize that my relationship to love is completely creating my experience with love in my life, then I am in complete denial. So, take a look around at your circumstance and ask yourself, “What is my relationship with X, Y or Z?” This level of awareness can change everything. Really, go create a new relationship with these things in your life and see how they change – just like you can go change your relationship with any person and it opens up new vistas of possibility. The same principles apply! Have at it!
