The Four Noble Truths of Relationship

Relationships are uncomfortable — feelings of fear, or being hurt, misunderstood, disappointed, stressed, rejected or ignored arise over and over. This is life in relationship — even happy relationships. Impermanence leads to terror and bliss, highs and lows, love and hate - the roller-coaster experience of relationship. If you're looking to live your relationship on the "happy-only" end of the continuum, please disregard this notice. If you want to experience aliveness, authenticity, chaos, depth, sadness and meaning in your relationship, the Four Nobel Truths can help you understand what you long for and fear the most — love.

Understanding and Working with "Internal Knots" 

Buddhist psychology refers to internal formations, fetters or "knots" as the experience we have when, for example, our partner says something unkind to us and we then become reactive, confused or irritated. Our lack of understanding is the basis of every "knot" we experience. Often in our relationships we become uncomfortable with the fear, anger, and resentment or regrets these "knots" cause. Rather than face our emotional reactivity head-on, we resort to defense mechanisms in order to bury these emotions. Recognizing the knot in the moment provides us with an opportunity for deeper exploration and clarity — the path to inner peace, calm, harmony and balance within our self and between our self and our partner.

Why Accommodating to Your Partner May Be Unhealthy

Many folks believe a heathy, loving relationship requires us to sacrifice some of our requirements, wants or needs "for the good of the order." However, can sacrifice sometimes undermine our relationship? Some recent research shows that accommodating our partner can, in fact, sometimes lead to resentment, regret and depression. How so?

Suggested offering: $15 per person. Everyone is welcome to attend and Gratitude Offerings are acceptable if you are unable to pay the suggested offering.

Even as a mother protects with her life her child, her only child,

So with a boundless heart should one cherish all living beings;

Radiating kindness over the entire world

Spreading upwards to the skies, & downwards to the depths; Outwards & unbounded

How could anyone ever tell you you were anything less than beautiful.  

How could anyone ever tell you you were less than whole.  

How could anyone fail to notice that your loving is a miracle

and how deeply you're connected to my soul. (lyrics by Libby Rodrich)




















Nancy's Notes......

The holidays are approaching, and it's one more season for remembering my ancestors. I've opened my grandmother's cedar chest and all the photos and articles about relatives I didn't even know are on the floor. Coincidentally, I've been listening to Buddha At the Gaspump's interviews with tribal members of African and Native American decent. Their belief is that their ancestors in the unseen realms are working with them to help evolve the conciousness of their unique lineage until it has been transformed into alignment with the Divine plan. I'm noticing this as I continue to live in connection with my extended family.

I have a cousin who lives in the prison of her own house. She can hardly get out of her recliner and suffers from deep depression and many other physical ailments. I've invited her to come live with me, but she refuses. She also refuses to go into any of the care facilities. She is addicted to her suffering, and almost everyone has given up on her. Some try to comfort me by saying, "She'll work it out," or "She's got to learn the hard way." But I just can't seem to swallow that approach. Why? Because I wake up every morning and during my meditation she always pops into my consciousness. The "Supreme Informer" reminds me that "Whatever you have done to the least of these, my brethren, you have done unto me." As I look at the pictures of my grandmother, aunts, uncles, and especially my cousin's mother; I can't ignore her. I ask God and my ancestors to give me wisdom. What can I do to help relieve her suffering?

As I was talking with my cousin a while back, I finally realized that she just wants someone to understand just how difficult life is for her; and also, just how well she navigates her confinement. I've pondered all of this and came to the conclusion that she is right. I don't know of anyone else who could live in such disarray, darkness, pain, and suffering and not lose hope. And so, I asked her to tell me about her challenges and victories. She has found a way to make it to her kitchen by using her cane to lift her out of her recliner and into a big rolling desk chair. She then uses her feet and cane to inch her way to the potty and kitchen. She is really animated when she talks about how she is able to reach far away objects. She still wants to be independent and live her life alone in the only home she has made for herself in this world.

All of this to say, the one thing that she keeps reiterating is that she would be happy if she could only have a puppy to keep her company. Her energy raises an octave as she talks about how much she loves dogs. And so, I've been checking out all the computer sites that make it easy to see what dogs need a home. And yesterday I got the "go ahead" message. A teacup chiweenie brother and sister were looking for a home. They are 10 weeks old, and absolutely adorable! That's it! I've got to get them for her so that she can take her mind off her own problems and take care of and delight in them.

I drove all the way to McDonough yesterday and picked them up. When I put them in my cousins supple lap; a brilliant, bright light turned on throughout her whole body, and those little pups were in heaven hiding under the blanket she had draped over her and them. They will see her as the most loving care-giver they could possibly have. The disarray, smells, and confinement won't bother them. They have a universe to explore in what was once a prison..... 

It's been a long time since I've felt such joy in my heart. My cousin has taken off her graveclothes and ashes and is alive again. She has two little friends to share her huge, loving heart with; and her ancestors, God, and I will support all three of them as they navigate their little world together.

Love, Nancy
