I appreciate the gentle wisdom of this article. I believe that we do wake up, become more conscious, through relationship, which results in happiness from within. We are related, and in relationship we have the ongoing opportunity to transform. I used to be more angry, negative, defensive, critical than I am now, and my being in relationship with my wife who is positive, accepting, patient, encouraging has very much helped me become more aware of how I was and become more soft, less angry, more positive, and more kind. I was held in loving embrace, and my becoming more conscious and growing occurred and is occurring over many years -- I'm a slow learner. Knowing what happens for me, remembering that I can learn and change, helps me to grow in awareness and helps me to be more compassionate toward myself, and knowing that others are (like) me I am also more compassionate with others.

I hear you! Relationships are designed to heighten awareness! Alone, we can easily "loose our edge"! We gotta keep going! (My Grandma Tillie would say quite often in her latter years!)
