What is Relationship?

There is no doubting or escaping the fact that, as human beings, from the moment of birth we are in relationship with other human beings and the world around us. And from that moment, whether we seek relationship or isolation, there is no avoiding the fact of relationship itself, as even isolation is a state of relationship. So, whether we have relationships that flourish and enrich us, founded in love, joy and harmony, or languish into the likes of conflict, imposition and abuse in their many forms, is entirely up to us.

The What is Relationship articles share the personal experiences and insights into the fact of relationship and how whatever we bring to them, or not, including by way of integrity and responsibility, determines what unfolds — be that to flourish or languish. Beyond that, we also look at the grandness of everything, both within and beyond ourselves, that we are in relationship with and inseparable from as human beings.
