Healthy Spiritual Relationships: Partners in Pain, Buddha’s Mind and Christ’s Bleeding Heart

This post discusses what healthy spiritual relationships look like. We all have people we talk to when we are in pain, but beware of partners in pain. This is a dynamic where commiseration turns into amplifying the pain and suffering and keeping it alive rather than healing it. Healing occurs when one of the two people is established in their own peace, happiness, and healing. Only when we are established in our own peace are we able to offer healing instead of amplifying suffering.

A healthy spiritual relationship requires us to walk the path of the clear detached Buddha’s mind while maintaining Christ’s bleeding heart. We must never lose sight of the reality of suffering and empathize with those who suffer, while maintaining the greater perspective that suffering is the instrument of our healing and evolution. Suffering is to be empathized with and learned from, but not wallowed in.
