The TRUE power that ALL relationships wield, is their ability to TARGET and CHALLENGE our most TREASURED beliefs. How else would we EVOLVE?


Relationships are PERSONAL GROWTH incubators. They are meant to CHALLENGE us, NOT CODDLE us into accepting COMFORTABLE, SUBMISSIVE, UNCREATIVE, and STAGNANT waters where NOTHING moves! Yin and Yang are necessary for CREATION to occur.
.
It is ONLY when a CONTRASTING belief hits us, that we are forced to re-evaluate our own PLACE of being. Is the BELIEF that I am HOLDING TIGHTLY onto based in fear and discomfort? Is there another PERSPECTIVE I can’t see? Have I GENERALIZED, or JUMPED to a conclusion PERHAPS based on an UNCONSCIOUS bias?
.
When one of our OWN beliefs has been HIT by a CONTRASTING one is when we have the GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY to STOP, and REFLECT upon it honestly. It is in that MOMENT that we hold the almighty QUESTION that has the power to GROW something new. Is my belief something that I’ve now outgrown and needs to be tossed, or does it need to be looked at from another angle, or actually STRENGTHENED and perhaps advanced to the NEXT stage of its development?
.
EXPECT your relationships to CHALLENGE you,…and then give THANKS when they do. Our EVOLUTION actually depends upon QUESTIONING and RE-EVALUATING our thought constantly.
.
Be like a SURFER, riding that LEADING EDGE of thought that curls and crashes into new waves that NEVER EVER stop forming. BE that CREATOR that your soul YEARNS you to become each and every perfect moment you are ALIVE and QUESTIONING life.

    And sometimes relationships that chafe or bind are there to remind us to “let go” of toxic people who no longer serve a purpose as we continue along the path.

    Absolutely! Chafing and Binding, are not necessary for personal growth. Let it go. <3

    But I also agree with your words here.

    On the Spiritual Path, people who annoy us are our “teachers.” In time, people who can upset us become harder and harder to find.
