The entire movement of the universe is motivated by growth and instructed by balance, you’re no different. The macrocosmic experience is mirrored by the microcosm in ever aspect of existence. This being the case it stands to reason that all our relationships are built on these two concepts too.
Over the last few days I’ve been investing my time in assessing the areas of my life that are out of balance, knowing full well that the point of balance is where the Grail is at its fullest and most evident in our lives… I’ve been investigating where my health is out of balance, where my finances are out of balance, where my focus and working life is out of balance and of course where my relationships are out of balance… but how do you know when your relationships are out of balance?
Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted is an interesting concept because at its most basic it means allowing everything and everyone to enter and leave your life without it diminishing your love for them, this encompasses other Principles: those of detachment and liberation, but there is another much more elusive aspect to being Open-Hearted and that is the ability to allow yourself to give and receive in equal measure.
Allowing yourself to be compensated for expenditure of energy is a vital component in maintaining personal balance and nowhere are we more drained than by unbalanced relationships. Ask yourself: Am I getting as much as I’m giving? This is by no means a mercenary attitude and requires careful consideration as you may, upon deeper inspection, find that the universe is rewarding you from another source allowing you to continue to serve. The best way to understand how balanced a relationship is, is to observe the feeling going on within your own solar plexus each time you think about the other person involved… describe this feeling to yourself and if it’s unpleasant then maybe its time to either redress the discord or to cut loose completely…
Now if the membership section of the site were up and running today, Grail Knights would be able to access a Karmic Assessment Exercise to see how balanced their relationships are…
…but as its not available yet I’ll have to leave you to your own devices… it’s coming soon.
More later… x
