A Top Cause of Relationship


Pain & Breakups! ORIGIN COLUMNIST | Mastin Kipp


The Love of The Uni-verse never changes; other people


change all the time. When we keep our eyes on The Uni-verse and surrender to Its will for us, we take everyone else off the hook for our happiness.


We no longer seek to take Love from them, but to show up from a place of overflow and give Love to them.


The key word here is “reciprocal.” Interdependence can be thought of as a relationship where each party gives and receives from his or her own internal overflow. Which is TOTALLY different than “codependence” which can be thought of as being “addicted to someone.”

Another way to look at it, spiritually, is this: A codependent person makes someone else his or her Higher Power. An interdependent person knows that The Uni-verse is their Higher Power and keeps their focus on that, while choosing to be in a relationship with someone else who is also looking to The Uni-verse to fulfill them.


When I first got into a relationship with my girlfriend, the first thing I said was, “We have to keep our eyes on The Uni-verse to fulfill us. You and I, we are imperfect


definition of Interdependence is “a reciprocal relation between interdependent entities.”


and flawed human beings who are going to mess up. We can’t look to each other to fulfill us; I want to be in a relationship where we keep our eyes on The Uni-verse, which allows us to love ourselves and each other as imperfect beings.”


You see, when we make someone else our Higher Power, we are REALLY setting ourselves up for pain. This is a top cause of pain in relationships and breakups. We are looking to someone else for something they can never give us, which is perfect and unwavering Love. There is only one place unwavering Love comes from and that is The Uni-verse.


The Love of The Uni-verse never changes; other people change all the time. When we keep our eyes on The Uni-verse and surrender to Its will for us, we take everyone else off the hook for our happiness. We no longer seek to take Love from them, but to show up from a place of overflow and give Love to them. This kind of relationship creates two really great givers and FORgivers. This is the cornerstone of having an awesome and long-term relationship.
