Spiritual Partnerships




My desire is to have a spiritual partnership, not only with myself, but with my spouse and our children.  To me, a spiritual partnership is thriving when we are present, awake, and alive with our loved ones.  Here is how I am practicing this by:
1.  putting electronics away when loved ones are with me
2.  pausing before I speak
3.  listening - feet planted, eyes on them without contemplating a self-righteous reply
4.  seeing their souls more than their personalities
5.  looking for what is right, not wrong
6.  enjoying simple pleasures with them - time in nature, playing with our dogs, eating clean food, praying
7.  daily silence so I can remember the above
