relationships

A Quote by Swami Rudrananda on swami rudrananda, relationships, energy, ego, emotion, being, psychology, and neurosis

"Don't look for perfection in me. I want to acknowledge my own imperfection, I want to understand that that is part of the endlessness of my growth.  It’s absolutely useless at this stage in your life, with all of the shit piled up in your closet, to walk around and try to kid yourself about your perfection. Out of the raw material you break down you grow and absorb the energy.  You work yourself from inside out, tearing out, destroying, and finding a sense of nothingness.  That nothingness allows God to come in.  But this somethingness— ego and prejudices and limitations— is your raw material.  If you process and refine it all, you can open consciously.  Otherwise, you will never come to anything that represents yourself...The only thing that can create a oneness inside you is the ability to see more of yourself as you work everyday to open deeper and say, fine,  ‘I’m short tempered,’ or ‘Fine, I’m aggressive,’ or, ‘Fine, I love to make money,’ or, ‘I have no feeling for anybody else.’ Once you recognize you’re all of these things, you’ll finally be able to take a breath and allow these things to open."

A Quote by George Orwell on george orwell, relationships, emotion, ego, psychology, life, death, and humanity

The essence of being human is that one does not seek perfection, and that one is prepared in the end, to be defeated, and broken up by life, which is the inevitable price of fastening one’s love upon other human individuals.

George Orwell (1903 - 1950)

A Quote by Abraham-Hicks on vibration, connection, relationships, and control

You don't have to worry about what their vibration is if your vibration is one of connection. Because if your vibration is one of connection -- you're going to dominate the vibration. This is the way you learn your relationships. The thing that most people do not understand, is that you get to control the way you feel, because you get to choose the thoughts you think. Most people think that they only have the option of responding to the circumstances that surround them. And that's what makes them attempt the impossible, which is to control the circumstances around them, which only feeds their feeling of frustration and vulnerability, because it doesn't take very much life experience to discover you can't control all of those circumstances. But you can control your vibration. And when you control your vibration, you've controlled everything that has anything to do with you.

A Quote by Anaïs Nin on relationships, intimacy, understanding, and love

The value of the personal relationship to all things is that it creates intimacy... and intimacy creates understanding... and understanding creates love.

A Quote by Anna Garlin Spencer on friendship, man, woman, comradeship, love, and relationships

The friendship between a man and a woman which does not lead to marriage or desire for marriage may be a life long experience of the greatest value to themselves and to all their circle of acquaintance and of activity; but for this type of friendship both a rare man and a rare woman are needed. Perhaps it should be added that either the man or the woman thus deeply bound in lifelong friendship who seeks marriage must find a still rarer man or woman to wed, to make such a three cornered comradeship a permanent success.

A Quote by Steve Pavlina on relationships and business

Understand that relationships are more important than contracts.  Business deals are relationships between people.  The signed piece of paper is important, but it’s merely the result of the relationship, not the cause.  If the relationship crumbles, the contract won’t save you, although it could be very lucrative for your lawyer.

A Quote by Barbara Sher on self-esteem, relationships, self worth, and confidence

"Human beings are not comparable. You can't compare us any more than you can compare roses and oranges, or mountains and the sea. You might prefer living by the sea to living in the mountains. You certainly like some people better than you like others. Preferences are perfectly valid…they're just your style asserting itself again. But you'd feel pretty silly saying 'The sea is better than the mountains.' It's every bit as silly to go around saying 'I'm better than Mary, but Joe is better than me.'"

A Quote by Steve Pavlina on steve pavlina, soulful relationships, relationships, oneness, and connectedness

Everyone you meet in your life - even total strangers - is already intimately connected to you.  The idea that we are all separate and distinct beings is nothing but an illusion.  We are all parts of a larger whole, like individual cells in a body.
