In the third and final post on Marianne Williamson’s spiritual teaching of relationships, we explore what it means to be in a Level 3 relationship.
“The third level of teaching is a relationship which, once formed, lasts all our lives. At this level, each person is given a chosen learning partner who presents him with unlimited opportunities for learning. Someone with whom we have a lifetime’s worth of lessons to learn is someone whose presence in our lives forces us to grow. Sometimes it represents someone with whom we participate lovingly all our lives, and sometimes it represents someone who we experience as a thorn in our side for years.” – Marianne Williamson, Return to Love
Being able to see the spiritual connection to relationships allows us to move away from the idea that “love will fix us,” but rather that we can contribute to its existence in our lives. That we can be active in its process, from the person we pass by on the street, to those we say goodbye to, and to those we keep close by forever.
