We grow from the comparison to all things as individuals. This gives us the impetus to expand and grow our limited awareness moment by moment. Its good to pick and choose which philosophical, spiritual and religious codes you resonate with; they are just perspectives on reality which is always changing as we determine our experience to be.
“My Life Is about My Relationships… You will never find yourself in a point in time when the subject of relationships is not an active part of your now experience, for everything you perceive or notice or know is because of your relationship with something else. Without a comparative experience, you would be unable to perceive or focus any kind of understanding within yourself. Therefore, it is accurate to say that without relationships you could not exist at all.”
