Part one from the three part series Conscious Relationship – Tools for Growing Together and Separately.

Being Okay with Being Alone in Your Relationship

We are born alone and we will die alone. This feeling of loneliness drives us to relationships. There is no avoiding ‘aloneness’. The key is making the transition from being okay alone and being okay with other and not feeling lonely when the ‘other’ person is or is not present.

To come to terms with relationships in our lives we need to come to terms with aloneness. Awakening is fundamentally coming to terms with the aloneness of the ego in the world. Can we be content in our aloneness, and then be alone, together and enjoy each other?

We are talking about being really comfortable, centered and at peace with being in your own skin.
