Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.
When we think of "relationship" we may tend to think of the relationship of a couple... yet we are in relationship with everyone and everything all of the time. This week's featured articles look at our relationship with friends, aging parents, nature, our "partner" (whether married or not), and even our relationship with our past selves. The connection between all of these relationships is that all of them reflect the most important relationship of all, the one we have with ourself. The "outside" relationships mirror the one we have inside, with our "self" and with our "Self". They are all really one and the same.As within, so without.
Our authors assist you in your quest for the "perfect" relationship or experience, which of course starts within. Our additional articles also reflect on relationship since we are in relationship with everything and everyone we encounter, even if only through the written word. Scroll down below for the articles added to InnerSelf this week.
Wishing you enjoyable insightful reading, and of course a wonder-full, joy-full, and loving week.
