The ephemerality of relationships

Dear Ones,

I wanted to talk about the “meaning of relationships,” yet “ephemeral” sounds more to the point of what I would like to share.

I believe the end of a year, and more specifically that of 2020—marking a break or hinge of some sort—is a good time to say “thank you” to some of the relationships that have dissolved or disappeared over the past few months and years.

Not only in 2020, I must add. Think of what happened to you in the past five years, relationship-wise.

Some of these relationships were not meant to last beyond a certain point; some others “did the work” —read, brought us a message or helped us get to where we are now—and it is time to acknowledge them one last time, be grateful for what they manifested and move on.

In my case, I can think of two women in the south of France with whom I was in close contact in 2017. And yet, as soon as we met for the purpose we had chosen long ago, it seemed the relationship was no more.

It is a strange phenomenon, isn’t it?

Yet one that allows us to enter the new with more grace and spiritual agility.

Who knows what 2021 has in store for all of us? My last thought is that the lighter we travel in this Universe, the faster and higher we might fly.

I wish you a meaningful and beautiful end of 2020, knowing there are only five short weeks left between this week’s communion, November 26, and December 31st!

About new desert

Nurturing the Gift of Seeking is about a spiritual "destination," a journey within, a new beginning, that eventually takes us where we are meant to arrive. Some call it Home, yet I am not sure what Home means, and where it is. Enjoy the journey, dear Ones! On this journey, what matters, first and foremost, is our seeking spirit. And the seed of perseverance--or faith, if you will. Happy journey, dear fellow Sisters and Brothers!
