Workers on a field in Vietnam
“We´re all just walking each other home.” Ram Dass
I love this quote because it is a good reminder. It is easy to feel disconnected from someone I perceive to be different from me or someone who does something to irritate me. However, these are the people with so much to offer me. If I can see their behaviour from a different vantage point and see that they too are fighting a hard battle, then I can see that we are alike, and not different.
I see many marriages that are struggling in this place. They feel as though they have lost connection and are going separate directions. Once each person begins to really start to look at themselves and to ask themselves what they want from this marriage, inevitably they both want the same thing. They both want to feel loved, supported and free to be who they really are.
This is very possible. The key is to realize how alike we are to one another rather than being right about the idea that we are so different.
We are all just walking each other home.....beautiful.
