We begin our turn toward Source when we finally are ready to give up the endlessly futile project of trying to get one person to conform to our expectations of what an ideal mate should be. At this point it can be useful to invoke the ‘First Noble Truth’ of the Buddha. He said, 25 centuries ago, that the nature of life is suffering. In specific, that all conditional experiences do not lead to satisfaction, wisdom, or completion. Translated into relationship, this means that all standard person-to-person relating fails to lead to completion or satisfaction. We must add something to the mix. That something is Source-Work, or Conscious Relating.
