Happiness and Relationships

I found the following bouncing around the net for something interest to post tonight, it’s a really beautiful thought on relationships written by Elizabeth Reninger for About.com

In my observation, very few and far between are those who enter relationships from a place of wisdom. We seek (or avoid) relationships because we think that being (or not-being) in such-and-such a relationship will be the source of the love, happiness, security, etc. that we most deeply desire. If the relationship is a living one (i.e. both people willing/able to grow and change, consciously) then perhaps – with a bit of luck or grace or whatever – illusions are, over time, revealed and dissolved, and truth grown into. But the psychological and cultural conditioning around this one tends to be deep, deep, deep …

Perhaps some day (as the result of a collective inner revolution?) it will become more common for us to come together in partnership simply for the sheer joy of it — to dance and play and celebrate and just enjoy being together.
