Creative awareness

Creative awareness lets you see the problems in your relationships more clearly. We often relate to people only on certain conditions; we ask them to fulfill our needs or to be exacatly as we want them to be. But the beauty of a relationship is that it enables you to open to another person, and that person to you. With creative awareness, you become more aware and appreciative of other people. You see them as they are, not as you want them to be. You recognize their good qualities but you also see their foibles and have space for those, too. Acceptance is the ground for love.

All very well and right, but how many people do you know who have such awareness?

Without meaning to pry, I wonder if you yearn for something you’ve never experienced?

I am guessing that you mean that you, yourself have felt such. Has anyone else ever extended such to you?
