Relationships do not cause pain and unhappiness. They bring out the pain and unhappiness that is already in you. Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now
This chapter illustrates letting go of victimhood and recovery from codependency. As codependents, we give away our power and the truth of who we truly are.
Codependency creates much suffering in relationships. I believe from teaching about codependency to groups for a number of years that over 90 % of American families have some degree of codependency, from mild to severe. Are you or have you been codependent? Can you recognize the behaviors of codependency?
This chapter also mentions briefly how the Dark Night of the Soul presents an opportunity for us to connect to a greater truth of our souls and the Divine. To go through this most intense suffering of separation requires courage to take a leap into the unknown and our willingness to sacrifice our stance of victimhood.
Lastly, the chapter talks about the still small voice of intuition, which all of us can develop to receive greater clarity of truth.
