"All humans seek the illusive touch of another's Soul, which opens us to the sense of belonging to something bigger than the self. Dr. Kortsch has given us the true "tao" of relationship in this brilliant exploration of emotional tapestry. We will be grateful for this illumination of spiritual partnership for generations to come." Chris Griscom, Spiritual Leader, Author

"Eloquent and comprehensive, showing how your primary love relationship may be a sacred vessel that transports you and your partner to a place of mutual healing and expansion." Robert Schwartz, Author: Your Soul's Gift: The Healing Power of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born

"The Tao of Spiritual Partnership is a unique blend of wit and wisdom; Dr. Kortsch encourages us to take responsibility for our relationships, while recognizing and seizing the opportunities for our own personal spiritual growth." William Buhlman, Author of Adventures Beyond the Body

Walking A Bit Further Every Day


The photo really says it all: we will only move forward in our lives if we walk a bit further every day - if we move beyond the place we were at the day before. But how is that done? Don't most of us basically stay in the same situation we found ourselves in unless life forces us forward by throwing stones, boulders or mountains in our path? Does that mean that we only move forward if we run into challenges and problems?

I believe that as long as we are not truly aware of ourselves and our lives, truly conscious of what we do day in and day out, the main method of moving forward (once we're done with classical socialization processes such as growing up and academic preparation), is via the above-mentioned challenges and problems.

If, however, conscious awareness becomes part of our daily lives, we are much more able to choose to move in that forward direction of our own volition, and may then, on occasion, perhaps even avoid some of the stones, boulders and mountains - or find that they are much easier to traverse than they might have been.

Consider this:
  • by proactively changing your eating habits, adding daily exercise to your régime, and deliberately taking some time each day to de-stress and relax, you may prevent a life-threatening illness further down the road such as cancer, which, once you received the diagnosis, would then in all likelihood, cause you to make some of the above changes. However, if you don't make those changes until you are forced to, it may be too late, or you may not get nearly the leverage out of them that you would have, had you implemented them earlier on, before they became a necessity.
  • by proactively learning how to use software related to your profession, even though you are currently not expected to use it in your particular job, you may prevent being down-sized further down the road, which, once that particular problem occurred, would then in all likelihood, cause you to make some of the above changes. However, if you don't make those changes until you are forced to, it may be too late, or you may not get nearly the leverage out of them that you would have, had you implemented them earlier on, before they became a necessity.
  • by proactively pursuing an interest throughout your life (or more than one), while you are an active parent, while you are working, and going through the early and middle years of your life, so that, when your children leave the nest, and when you eventually retire, you will have a richness in your life that will serve you well. Such richness will prevent boredom, depression and pain, among many other possible scenarios that would then in all likelihood, force you into considering the possibility of making some of the above changes. However, if you don't make those changes until you are forced to, it may be too late, or you may not get nearly the leverage out of them that you would have, had you implemented them earlier on, before they became a necessity.
So isn't it clearly much better to walk a bit further every day under your own steam, as opposed to waiting for the stone, boulder or mountain to appear in your path that would then potentially force you to move forward in some fashion? What are you doing today to walk a bit further in your life?
