Seek and find the barriers within yourself..

According to the Sufi master Rumi, “Our task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” When we approach our human relationships in this way, we welcome our pain, we commit to feeling and not avoiding.

The average person uses their relationship or longs for a lover or partner to avoid feeling feelings and to fill up the holes and places of emptiness. In the old paradigm of sexual partnership, one would leave when the shadow of their partner would begin to arise, we would either escape, avoid, deny or quite simply go emotionally numb. This avoidance of feeling, has a detrimental affect and actually blocks and stagnates our life energy, dimming down our innate effervescent joy for life. In a sacred tantric relationship we welcome these emotions in ourselves and in our partner and we learn to hold the space for each other to feel and to heal the wounds of love.
