"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

Being Kind

Such a simple thing to be kind, so why aren't we always kind? Think of the number of times you've found it necessary to impress upon someone that you are right, or that you know better (or indeed, that you are better), as opposed to being kind. Ugh. Makes you shudder with yourself, right? It certainly makes me shudder with myself.

I'd like to impress upon upon you a simple little truth: being kind is a question of practicing being kind. You didn't have to be born that way; you didn't have to have been that way when you were a kid, when you were growing up, when you were in your 20's, and not even yesterday. You just have to start practicing today ... right now ... from this point forward. For that to work, it will require a bit of intention and attention to the matter, i.e., you'll have to practice being aware of those moments when you are on the verge of not being kind, so that you can change that and - as said - practice being kind instead. It will change you in time, and being kind will start to form an integral part of the tapestry of your life; of your modus operandi.

I hold these two quotes close in order to remind myself frequently:

Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.
Dalai Lama

Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for kindness.

Let us all make a practice of always being kind. And let's start right now!
