RELATIONSHIPS

INTIMACY

FAMILY

LIFE

According to the physicist Henry Stapp, elementary particles are “in essence, a set of relationships that reach outward to other things”, and as such, RELATIONSHIP is the organizing principle of the universe. We are in constant communion and in relationship with everything and everyone around us.

Thus the center of everything lies in relationship, and the beginning of any relationship starts with our relationship to our self. Then, as ripples extending outwards, we connect to partners, children, friends, networks and our communities.

As though each is going to contain THAT answer which is somehow going to provide this immediate cataclysmic shift into my perfect life. Of course, each of these activities have great value, and as a coach and facilitator myself, I am certainly not saying these things do not support each of us in this journey of life, and are instrumental in the changes that we seek…. However we are often conveniently forgetting that missing piece which is: only we are responsible for any change, and all work comes from ourselves…. One step at a time. Continue Reading
