"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

Moving From Judgement to Love

If you aspire to become a concert pianist, it stands to reason that you will practice the piano on a daily basis. You know that if you don't, you have little hope of reaching your goal. If you want to play with the greats at Wimbledon, it also stands to reason that you will practice playing tennis on a daily basis. Again, you know that if you don't, you have little hope of reaching your goal. And of course, if you were raised in China, and want to become proficient in English, you know that you have little hope of reaching your goal if you don't do something within the general parameters of working on learning that language on a daily basis.

But what about all those of us who yearn to live more attuned to our sacred self: our soul? Or perhaps those of us who simply want to be better human beings? Kinder, more compassionate, more loving? This is not a topic I haven't already blogged about, but there is - I believe - always something else to be said about it, that just might help one or the other (including myself) to move a little further down that road to spiritual improvement and growth.

Try this: when you enter into a space with another (whether it's your partner, your child, your parent, your sibling, your friend or neighbor, a colleague, a boss, a subordinate, or the news vendor or shoe-shine person on the street), ask yourself how can I serve? Asking that question will allow you to very rapidly notice the thoughts in you that may be judgemental, critical, or somehow negative with regards to that person. And noticing this, will very rapidly bring you back to your question in a new way: how can I serve if I am being judgemental or critical?

This post is not about not upholding healthy boundaries, nor is it about not loving your self, or loving others before you love yourself. But it is very much about recognizing that without the intention to have a daily practice of aware loving-ness, kindness, and compassion, in all situations - and then to follow through on that intention - none of us has true hope for reaching that goal of living more attuned to our sacred self, of being better human beings, and of moving a little further down the road to spiritual improvement.
