Keeping Exhilaration Alive


Are you still exhilarated when you think of your partner? If you've been together for a while, chances are the answer to that question is not a resounding yes. Exhilaration implies not only excitement, but also joy, a sense of mystery and discovery, fascination, elation, and delight. Quite a mouthful, especially if you want to apply it to a partner who no longer really evokes those feelings in you (or perhaps never did).

There are many ways to keep some of those feelings alive. Many people suggest that a couple have a weekly 'date night', or that they plan the occasional weekend away from home, especially if they have children. But I believe that there are a number of other things that are essential to keeping the exhilaration alive:
  • each partner needs to be as conscious as possible
  • being conscious implies that each partner is developing an aware relationship with him or herself. That means that there is a deep connection to the self.
  • each partner needs to recognize his/her own responsibility for his/her own inner well-being (as opposed to expecting a feeling of well-being from the partner. That can also happen, but in the first instance it needs to come from oneself).
  • with all of the above in place, the partners will be able to connect to each other in ways that would not be possible if the above were not in place
  • this kind of connection allows exhilaration between the partners to continue to flow
None of the above is difficult, but it does require attention and intention. Also some practice and discipline. But the end result and the final gift to yourself and your partnership is so monumentally wonderful, that not to do it makes no sense.



For much more about how being conscious affects your relationships, as well as about how choosing responsibility for the self enhances them, and about how all of this can help you move towards spiritual partnership and inner peace, see my new book The Tao of Spiritual Partnership which is now available in paperback format. (The Kindle version is available here)

From the Description on Amazon: More exciting than any other kind of relationship you have ever known, spiritual partnership is a path, a Tao, available to you so that you may transform your life. Spiritual partnership becomes background music to daily life allowing you to enhance the process of your growth and evolution.

This ground-breaking book addresses:

• relationship patterns that hold you back from a truly fulfilled life
• the strong connection between sexuality and spiritual partnership
• communication leading to true connection & lasting transformation of your relationship

It is precisely at the problematic crossroads so often encountered in relationships that we are offered the opportunity to create a new foundation based on mutual complementarity rather than need; a free relationship between two people who want to be together, rather than two people who need to be together. Needing another, we are told, is the measure of love, but for a fully conscious individual nothing could be further from the truth. And therein lies part of the secret and healing power of spiritual partnerships.

REWIRING THE SOUL


For more about understanding the self and inner growth, also have a look at my earlier book Rewiring the Soul: Finding the Possible Self (paperback or Kindle).

From the Description on Amazon: Ask anyone, whatever their circumstances, if their life is vibrant, fulfilling, harmonious and happy. An honest reply is likely to be 'no', because to answer a truthful 'yes' is no mean feat. Only to grow psychologically and emotionally is not enough. And only to grow spiritually is not enough either. All three dimensions need to be developed in order to realize your full potential. If you are willing to assume total responsibility for the self and to start what is an on-going journey, you will quickly begin to glimpse the first fruits of the ultimate goal: inner well-being, freedom, peace, harmony and joy. This book sets out the pathway to self-mastery and self-discovery and walking that pathway will be the most exciting adventure of your life.


Note: If you are wondering why this blog only appears on alternate days (excluding Sat/Sun), it is because I post on my other blog on the days in between. That other blog is Rewiring the Soul, so named for my earlier book. Click here to visit the blog and/or to sign up for the feed.
