The Torture of Your Reactions


There aren't too many people alive who are not familiar with the torture of jealousy, anger, doubt, and pain in their relationships. All of these (and others we could name) are feelings that affect us negatively. But they're also reactions we have when specific events occur, that according to our belief determine those reactions.

If my partner does such-and-such, I become jealous / angry / suspicious / sad. True - but only up to a point. You see, another's behavior only determines your reaction if you are not conscious and aware of yourself.

That last sentence, as short and unassuming as it is, lies at the bottom of much of the world's pain. As long as you are not conscious and aware, you are not in a position to be able to choose your reactions. Choosing your reactions gives you freedom. It's as simple as that.


Getting there is a question of practice, intention, and attention. If you are not used to being conscious 24/7 (or however many hours you are awake every day), it is something that can only begin by using a muscle you have heretofore never used. That muscle needs daily exercise. I encourage you to consider moving in that direction. It will be the most freedom-enhancing thing you can do for your life and once you have begun the process, your momentum will move you forward almost of its own volition. Do this for yourself.

I've written a great deal about this subject both on this blog and my other one, as well as on my website where you will find well over one hundred articles from my monthly newsletter (subscribe here) to help you understand this better. And of course both of my books deal with the subject extensively. I wrote: What others do to us is only important from the point of view of how WE react.

For much more about choosing your reactions in your relationships, and how awareness about this can help you find love, and 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 now 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. 


Praise for The Tao of Spiritual Partnership

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 others days. 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.
