If you think about it, every relationship is a spiritual relationship. We are spiritual beings and so we create spiritual relationships.
To many people such statement would appears outrageous. There are many relationships, in our own lives and in other people’s lives, that we don’t find spiritual at all. They don’t seem to be about love or peace or wisdom or kindness or any of the other qualities that we attribute to our spirituality.
I understand the feeling. But it doesn’t change anything. The truth remains the same: By design, every relationship is a spiritual relationship.
The “spiritual challenge” if you will is exactly that: To experience emotions, actions and reactions that you judge as not spiritual at all and still hold on to the truth that at the core of it these are relationships between two spirits having a human experiences as some would describe it and therefore these are spiritual relationships.
At the end of the day, spirituality is a challenge. To awaken to the truth of who you are and the truth of who the other person is, is a challenge. To awaken to the unconditional love that is the foundation of you and the relationship is a challenge.
