Opinion: The Yoga of Relationship

So many of us find ourselves alone, separate, disconnected, unloved. Why are these feelings so often underneath the mask many of us wear?

Your Facebook posts might be chipper on the outside, but underneath, if you get honest, you probably struggle like most of us. You probably have a low grade hunger or longing for something deeper, for a more real, raw connection.

You might feel alone or separate because you’ve been burned in relationship. You might feel a longing because whatever you are currently doing isn’t satiating you.

I keep seeing how everything we do in life comes back to one word: relationship— relationship to self, other, and to whatever we believe in.

It’s likely that most of us have experienced the intense pleasure and heartbreaking pain of relationship.

Relationship is often the source of much our longing. We long to love and to be loved. We long to be connected, not alone, and deeply held. We long to go back to our roots, to the earth, to a simple way of life. What is your longing?

Consider the possibility that you are not alone nor are you separate, even though that might be the experience you have.

Many gatherings are going on right now around the world to address your longing. Many people are coming together to put their attention on what connects us. People are getting real about community. And, a community is only as strong as the relationships that bind it.

So, what if we make relationship a foundational practice in our lives? What if, instead of yoga or meditation, that “relationship” was our daily practice?
