What do you think creates intimacy?
There are a number of ways to answer this question, one such response can be – strong bonds, which are made possible through shared values.
When two people can deeply agree on how to prioritize time, where to channel their attention, and what to spend their energy on, it’s likely they will have more common ground on which to build and grow together.
Often times though, in the hopes of being liked and accepted, we agree to things that don’t actually spark our hearts. We engage in this behavior to please others.
Unfortunately, this approach depletes our energy, leaves us hollow and makes us sad.
Therefore, even if we do manage to keep a relationship going in the short-term, it won’t’ be sustainable, and seem like endless work, that doesn’t necessarily fill us with joy in the long-term.
Step 3 of the process
Ask yourself: What can help you?
Creating something meaningful.
The word ‘values’ is very popular.
Everyone talks about it, but what does it actually mean?
Our values are the seeds of our happiness. Each individual carries a different expression of this seed. Thus, the germination and growing process of each seed is different. Without optimum environments, with the right soil of understanding, and the water of love, the caring for such a sprout can interrupt its growth and evolution.
Human beings are constantly looking for ways to grow happiness through their relationships, careers and personal hobbies.
Sometimes the mind likes to guide the way with what seems most ‘logical’, which is code for familiar. Yet what is known won’t make for enriching ground, because if it was, your garden would already be in bloom.
How we embody and express our values, determines whether someone, something or someplace is in alignment with our true nature, and can help us thrive through the incubation process.
When we agree to go along with the needs and wishes of another, forgoing our own, we destroy the fragile and subtle balance of energy required for growth.
Through sharing our needs with clarity, confidence and care, we can continue to strengthen the bonds that serve us, while pruning interactions that drain us.
Determine what inspires you and motivates you to dream.
Questions to reflect on:
– What topics bring you inspiration?
– What would a different future look like?
– If you could create something, what would you make?
Some fruits are so potent and rich that they become too heavy for the fragile vines that made them. Such crops require more stable support, that allows them to grow without falling.
For humans, rather than waiting for such aid from the outside, its more effective and efficient to create it from the inside. This is done with the help of boundaries.
What patterns do you see when you look at your:
