Right Relationship I’ve heard my magic teacher and a few others use this phrase a lot lately and I’m falling more and more in love with it. Right Relationship. I feel it folding itself into my being.
What does it mean to be in right relationship? Right relationship with my body. Right relationship with my money? Right Relationship with my business? With my practice? With my spouse? With myself?
Suddenly I want all my life to be modelled by this phrase, to be navigated by this simple yet rich term. Instead of wealth or health, I want to talk about right relationship with money and body. Not because right relationship is any less subjective than all the other words and phrases that we use. Because it isn’t. If anything it is more subjective.
But right relationship is purely my own. It’s mine to define. It doesn’t come with any of the baggage, weight, or pre-conceived judgements that all the other words we tend to use carry.
How does the idea of meeting your life with the question “What does it mean to be in right relationship with this right now,” feel to you?
