Why is the silverware drawer where it is?

The Yoga of Relationships by Yogi Amrit Desai
Why do we need to own our own home, or have a traditional occupation? This shift is where we move from our comfort zone into our growth zone. Growth, in part, means being comfortable with change. This means first examining our feelings about the potential for change the conflict presents, then deciding what, if anything, to do about it. For example, we often stand by our life-long friendships without reconsideration. They are a given—a should. They have always been there, and will likely remain. What if, however, you experience a major life change, like a divorce or radical misfortune, and discover the person whom you thought you could undoubtedly count upon was unsupportive—or even critical—of your new circumstances?
In the moment, this might be upsetting or feel hurtful. Rather than giving up our soul to get something we want, we are sending the devil packing, reclaiming ourselves and courageously embracing the life-changing choice of a more conscious and authentic life.

The play of God and Goddess on a spiritual realm, the play of our love — here, on the physical.

This is our doorway to God, liberation, and freedom, and what continues to bestow grace upon our lives. Through this practice, we can rebuild trust, recover from hurt, and expand our capacity to love.

We are loved and supported by the interweb of conscious relationships and universe that has a plan and a purpose for us always.
