In A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose, Eckhart Tolle talks about a world where a critical mass of the population has an elevated conscious. My book, New Earth Relationships, A Guide for Couples in the 21st Century, describes a process for you and your partner to support each other in elevating your respective consciousness.
Beyond having our basic survival needs met (shelter, food, clothes, health), what does make us happy? Here’s a short list.
- Feeling loved.
- Feeling lovable, worthy and capable of having someone love us.
- Feeling balanced and internally peaceful.
- Feeling at one with the universe.
- Being of service – having an experience that we make a difference.
If we want to feel contented and fulfilled, that’s where we need to put our energies. If we want to get there, we need to learn how to be present and grateful. If you can get there without doing any more work on yourself, you have my congratulations. For the majority of us, perhaps the purpose of having a relationship is to support our intent to work on ourselves.
A new earth relationship gives us someone to push our buttons, so we’ll have to do that work. A new earth relationship allows us to get the positive and negative feedback we need in order to true ourselves to a higher purpose. And a new earth relationship gives us a real partner to support us during the good and bad times.
Sometimes the thing we want so much is right in front of us, if we’re willing to let ourselves see it.
