Jesus Through John May 24 2013
The reality of the oneness of humanity, your interdependence on each other, and of course on the planet that so lovingly supports you is breaking into the awareness of even those most resistant to such a concept. This awareness is an essential part of your ongoing awakening process, and even those most impervious so far to the idea are realizing that their children and grandchildren need an environment in which peace and harmony prevail, which is why they too are choosing to become aware and to become the change that human survival on Earth demands.
Those in “failed” relationships, although consumed with bitterness for each other, do love their progeny and want the best for them. Their concept of what is best for them may be faulty, but the intent is loving. And truly there are no “failed” relationships because every relationship is a mutually chosen series of lessons which all those involved chose to undertake – lessons largely in the futility of resentment and blame. When a choice is made by either partner to see anger, bitterness, and attack as a call for love, the relationship changes – maybe improving, or maybe showing one of the partners that it is time to move on peaceably and calmly, thus freeing both.
Co-dependency is far, far different from interdependency. It occurs when one or both in a relationship use their partnership – adult-adult, parent-child, boss-subordinate, corporation-employee, government-people – as a means to maintain a sense of power over, or a sense of helplessness under, the other. It is unloving and damaging, as you are all well aware, but it does present those engaged in them with enormously powerful lessons that if properly learnt and understood lead to freedom.
