Intimate Relationships and Practical Spirituality

by Susan Kramer

Stan and I are currently celebrating 20 years of relationship, which has inspired me to write these reflections:


Practical spirituality is living a normal life for the highest good, and this includes relationships, in particular our intimate relationships.


If we are at first drawn together by physical attraction, we can over time, if we choose, grow to care about and want the best for each other. In this way our loving expressions take first place over lust.


Growth in the joy of spirituality comes by acting for the greater good in each situation.


We feel uplifted, elated, and full of peace when we act for what is best in personal relationships, and with all people.


Loving intimate relationships make a house a home.


The bare essentials of each come together, and we combine the best qualities to make our shared life most fulfilling, just as we make a house a home by adding our own special touches.


If we are truly seeking to consciously reunite with our Creator-Sustainer, we will do what is for the best in our relationships and all aspects of living. In this way we draw closer to experiencing the fullness of God right in the moment.


Giving our best to life

Gives us our best experience of life.
