We’ve talked about this subject many times before, but it keeps coming up in my conversations with folks. The other day a friend referred to his wife as his “better half.” It’s been a long time since I’ve heard that expression, and I do not like it any better now than I did long ago.

Are we really incomplete, only half a person, without another, especially a romantic partner? I know many folks, including me, who’ve lived happily alone for years. None of these people are antisocial, but they are comfortable being by themselves.

Here are some of Spirit’s thoughts:

You are all magnificent creators — gods and goddesses in human bodies. Every thought you think, every act you do, every move you make contributes to the growth and well-being of your fellow humans, your planet, the universe, all that is. But you often forget this, you forget who you really are.

You are always connected to your God self, your spirit. Your spirit — or higher self, if you prefer — is available to you in every single moment of your life on this planet. Your spirit never leaves you. You are never alone.

Today many relationships, and probably most romantic relationships, start from a place of need. A place of feeling you, by yourself, are not enough.

But you are enough, all by yourself. You are complete, all by yourself. If you’re looking for another to complete you, the relationship is doomed from the beginning.

You, as a single human being, aligned with your spirit, are complete just as you are. Wholeness is who you are.


Do you need another person, a lover, spouse, or anyone else, before you feel your life is complete?
