How do you maintain good relationships at work that are mutually beneficial? How can one foster family relationships that are rewarding and true? And what is the secret behind maintaining true intimacy with that special someone that you love?
A relationship, almost by definition, is a state of being connected. This connectedness with the world and the people in your life is at the core of the human experience. In fact, Swami Sukhabodhananda maintains that the very quality of one’s life is the quality of the relationships in it. Therefore, how do we nurture and foster this connectedness in order that we may lead a rewarding, fulfilling life?
We connect with people by communicating. We express ourselves, who we are, what we think and how we feel through our communication. But it is not enough that in order to connect, we merely communicate; what is even more important is how we do so. Effective communication is key to nurturing good relationships. Ineffective communication, on the other hand, can lead to misunderstandings and conflict.
Managing relationships, whether personally or professionally, requires a certain amount of trust and understanding. It requires a grounding of mutual respect, so that both people involved feel rewarded through the exchange. Good relationships at home bring a sense of harmony and joy in life. Maintaining good relationships at work often results in greater job satsifaction, better performance and even advancements in career.

‘Come, discover a spectrum of relationships…beyond the unknown and the known.’
