Relationships are old paradigm
Discussions of relationships are invariably old paradigm. They never go beyond the ego level. Ships have to be full of air in order to float, and you have to blow up the individual egos in order to make a vessel that will float in these rough seas. Thus relationships, carrying their ego-freight, seem to sustain their floatability by bolstering the individuals' sense of separateness. New paradigm relationships need a new name and an awareness that they are not posited on ego dynamics. One thing I know: a hit of pure existence love experienced in the eyes of another person will blow any concept of relationship out of the water. Taste reality, dissolve duality.
