"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

Life With Doubt

Perhaps you thought that as soon as you took the path you believed you had to be on, the path that would take you to your destiny, the path that is your path, that you would no longer have any doubts.

The Buddha said: There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks up pleasant relations. It is a thorn that irritates and hurts; it is a sword that kills.

So welcome to the real world. Goethe stated: We know accurately only when we know little, with knowledge, doubt increases. Doubts may assail you at every step of the way. Just because you believe in your path, does not mean doubts will not come knocking at your door. They may even be rather less polite and attempt to tear your door down. Thunderbolts and lightning may be thrown at your door and the rattling and thumping may lead you into fear. However, precisely because these doubts come knocking in an attempt to to throw you off your path, you have the opportunity to renew your vows, so to speak, to re-evaluate and convince yourself anew in the realization that this - whatever it is that you are doing and striving for - is indeed your path, and that no doubts will throw you off.

In this sense, doubts can be your friends. Gibran wrote: Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that fiath is his twin brother. As they arise, examine them dispassionately. Compare them with your dreams and goals. Evaluate and perhaps you may need to alter your bearings slightly. Even a jet on automatic pilot will make adjustments, depending on the wind and storms outside, but it will, weather notwithstanding, reach its final destination. As you can. Use your doubts wisely and you will find that they make you stronger and lead you more firmly towards your goal.

Doubt is the father of invention. Ambrose Bierce
