Create What You Want
Being single or in committed coupledom, is a popular topic in terms of the changing state of people's marital status over the last 25 years in particular. How beliefs in a society come to a rock hard belief "this is the way it is" is an interesting investigation. Who decided what, say, marriage looks like? More and more people are co-creating marriages as "spiritual partnerships" where one another's inner growth is important and supported too. Unless we ask WHY about the many things handed down as "this is right and best for all" like marriage, then we are not thinking nor deciding for ourselves. And sometimes asking a WHY question is important. Maybe there is an action or assumption or practice our community or family supports, yet for us it feels weird or uncomfortable. Questioning and being open to listen is a valuable life tool for examining and considering different points of view. We can be open to the possibility there is another possibility. Always.
