"Navigating Satisfaction and Dissatisfaction in Relationships: A Focus on Emotional Growth"
Esther Hicks discusses their satisfaction with their relationship but is troubled by the lack of intimacy. They question whether it’s right to consider ending the relationship for the one missing aspect.
They are advised to find satisfaction even in the absence of this missing piece. This is explained as being similar to finding happiness when other aspects of life may not be in place. The notion is to find contentment in what’s already present, which would open the way for more fulfillment to flow in.
The speaker is encouraged to reflect on the relationship’s positive aspects when they are apart, rather than focusing on the lack of intimacy. They should emphasize the other satisfying facets of their life to attract this missing piece. It’s advised not to let the absence dominate their thoughts, as it prevents them from welcoming the desired outcome.
If the speaker remains focused on the one missing element, they risk diminishing the satisfaction derived from the other aspects of their life. Instead, they should concentrate on the things that are going well to improve the overall situation.
To achieve this, they need to look beyond their current conditions and allow their inner being to lead them to what they desire. Taking action out of a lack or need may yield the opposite of the desired outcome. Instead, the speaker is urged to remain in a receptive mode, which would let ideas occur to them.
The central theme of the discussion is finding satisfaction without the manifestation of the desired outcome. The speaker is urged to focus on what they have rather than what’s missing. Their attention to their current reality, which may be lacking, is a barrier to achieving their desires. If they find satisfaction in understanding the laws of the universe and focus on the feeling of satisfaction, they can achieve anything.
The dialogue ends with a reminder not to focus on negative emotions as it’s equivalent to willingly enduring pain, which is counterproductive to their goals. The speaker is reassured that what they desire is in the process of manifesting, and it’s up to them to determine how long it takes based on their ability to find satisfaction in their current state.
