Thoughts to ponder (about relationships) excerpt from the book “Steps toward inner peace”


“Steps toward inner peace”

You do
not posses any other human being,
no matter how
closely related that other may be. No husband owns
his wife; no wife owns her husband; no parents own
their children. When we think we possess people
there’s a tendency to run
their lives for them, and out
of this develops an extremely inharmonious
situation. Only when we
realize that we do not
possess them, that they must
live in accordance with
their own inner motivation, do we stop trying to run
their lives for them, and then
we discover that we are
able to live in harmony with them.
by Peace Pilgrim
“Anything that
you strive to hold captive will hold you captive, and if
you desire freedom you
 must give freedom”.
