"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

Shaking the Wrinkles Out of Your Soul

Compare how you feel when you are enthusiastic to when you are not. The differences make themselves felt not only in your emotions, but also in the vibrational or energetic frequency of your body. Enthusiasm makes you come alive in so many senses of the word, and the lack of it, or the loss of it, causes you to wither. Samuel Ullman wrote: years wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.

This is similar to eating healthy food or taking vitamins and exercising, all of which - on a physiological level - may contribute to your well-being. Enthusiasm does the same.

Remember how you felt as a child, perhaps on a Saturday morning, when you knew you had the entire day at your disposal to run, play, build sand castles, read books under a tree, draw, or build an airplane with your Lego blocks. That enthusiasm - that joy - had in it not only the innocence of youth, but also the passion of something you loved. Enthusiasm at any time of life is similar to that. In fact, enthusiasm and joy are very inter-related because one may often be the cause of the other.

Enthusiasm can be sought in your passion for something you love doing, but it can also be sought in your simple interest in something you want to know more about. However you find your enthusiasm, it does require some proactive behavior on your part - in general, it won't just stroll up to you and introduce itself. But the interesting part of the proactive element is that it tends to occur more and more the greater your love for yourself has grown. I'm not talking about being a dilettante and floating - like a butterfly - from flower to flower, because one never satisfies you enough, and then believing that such enthusiasm is real, as opposed to existing simply because something is new, but about digging deep into that well of enthusiasm and growing it, expanding it, living it. One of my all-time favorite quotes comes from Rumi and I have posted and written about it often: when you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.
