Let’s face it, relationships are challenging.
But they don’t have to be a struggle. When done right, they’re one of the greatest sources of satisfaction and fulfillment in our lives. I know for me, when my union is thriving, I am thriving. I feel more confident as a man and more capable of stepping out and serving my mission in the world. I’m more effective, more impactful, and more intentional with my words & actions.
Look at it this way....
Chances are, you’ve never had two adults role model to you what a successful romantic relationship looks like. You either got the Disney version of romance, the “happily ever after” after said protagonist rescues the damsel in distress, or you were in some way traumatized by the relationships you witnessed between your mother and your father. Either way, your context for relationship got a little fucked up, with all due respect. This means, from where you are now, you don’t actually know what a successful romantic relationship looks and feels like. This might sound like a bad thing, but it actually puts you in a prime position to intentionally create the experience you desire, rather measure your relationship against some outdated social construct.
Add into the mix:
Kids, a mortgage, a full-time job, dysfunctional family members, environmental stressors, and an ever evolving global landscape, and viola, here you are. Not to mention all the tricky disempowering conditioning, behavioral patterns, and ways of being that you unconsciously inherited along the way. Most of us, by the time we reach adulthood, have a whole lifetime of “baggage” that we’re dragging around, whether we’re aware of it or not. Without a doubt this baggage enters with us into union, limiting our receptivity to love, intimacy, kindness, generosity, and shared partnership.
How to deconstruct these disempowering patterns while still being a high-performer in life?
That’s where I come in. In fact, if we do this right, your “performance” in life will only improve. This means, not only will you reap the benefit of generating all new levels of satisfaction and fulfillment in your relationship, but you’ll also expand your personal impact in the world. You’ll expand your capacity for service, and the best kind of service, the kind that comes from the heart. Believe it or not, the real reason men and women come together in union is not to punish each other with their baggage. We come together to eliminate the baggage once and for all, making sure not to pass it on to the next generation. We come together because our ability to serve the collective is greater together than it is apart.
Service is the centerpiece of union.
Our love is here to change the world. Truly. No bullshit. Divine union is the forefront of human evolution. If two people cannot establish trust, peace, and unconditional love between one another, how could we ever expect to see that in our world? If two people cannot generate genuine satisfaction, fulfillment, and joy together, how can we expect to receive those things from life? What we heal and transform within our union, we heal and transform within our world. Plain and simple. I suppose that creates a whole new context for romantic union, wouldn’t you say?
