A Quote by Foundation for Inner Peace on the special love relationship

No special relationship is experienced in the present. Shades of the past envelop it, and make it what it is. It has no meaning in the present, and if it means nothing now, it cannot have any real meaning at all.

A Quote by Foundation for Inner Peace on the special love relationship

Yet without your alliance in your own destruction, the ego could not hold you to the past. In the special relationship you are allowing your destruction to be. That this is insane is obvious. But what is less obvious is that the present is useless to you while you pursue the ego's goal as its ally.

A Quote by Foundation for Inner Peace on the special love relationship

The only value the body has is to enable you to bring your brothers to the bridge with you, and to be released together there.

A Quote by Foundation for Inner Peace on the special love relationship

In the transition there is a period of confusion, in which a sense of actual disorientation may occur. But fear it not, for it means only that you have been willing to let go your hold on the distorted frame of reference that seemed to hold your world together. This frame of reference is built around the special relationship. Without this illusion there could be no meaning you would still seek here.

A Quote by Foundation for Inner Peace on the special love relationship

The conviction of littleness lies in every special relationship, for only the deprived could value specialness.

A Quote by Foundation for Inner Peace on the special love relationship

If you perceived the special relationship as a triumph over God, would you want it?

A Quote by Foundation for Inner Peace on the special love relationship

God must die so you can live. And it is this theme that is acted out in the special relationship. Through the death of your self you think you can attack another self, and snatch it from the other to replace the self that you despise. And you despise it because you do not think it offers the specialness that you demand. And hating it you have made it little and unworthy, because you are afraid of it.

A Quote by Foundation for Inner Peace on the special love relationship

An altar is erected in between two separate people, on which each seeks to kill his self, and on his body raise another self to take its power from his death. Over and over and over this ritual is enacted. And it is never completed, nor ever will be completed. The ritual of completion cannot complete, for life arises not from death, nor Heaven from hell.

A Quote by Foundation for Inner Peace on the special love relationship

The special relationship must be recognized for what it is; a senseless ritual in which strength is extracted from the death of God, and invested in His killer as the sign that form has triumphed over content, and love has lost its meaning.

A Quote by Foundation for Inner Peace on the special love relationship

See in the special relationship nothing more than a meaningless attempt to raise other gods before Him, and by worshipping them to obscure their tiny-ness and His greatness. In the name of your completion you do not want this. For every idol that you raise to place before Him stands before you, in place of what you are.
