  1. I believe every relationship in it’s own way has the ability to free your mine, if you are able to apply it….

  2. Trust in your partner is a beautiful thing. 😉

    great words, Kozo and you speak on common sense lost over time. true relationships can only be built on trusting friendships, consistent awareness of one another and big time sacrifices. it seems easier to throw a relationship into the trash – you bring much needed light. that is, work hard to keep it together.
    also, i think it is common to take for granted our hometown or even our current place of residence. thanks for reminding us to stop and see the beauty. ☼sunHUGS!

      So much beauty to be seen, Sunshine. We just have to free our mind. I agree that it is common sense that has been lost over time. {{{Hugs]}} Kozo

        you would think with all our modern innovations, something like common sense would be, uh…so common! guess that would be too simple. 🙂 happy Tuesday!!

  4. Hi Kozo! That view was GORGEOUS! 🙂 And yes, don’t our loved ones help us expand our awareness if we are willing to follow their lead now and then? I too have been fortunate to have a loving and quality relationship for over 36 years now and what continues to make our relationship grow and thrive is that we are willing to learn and expand through each other. In fact I have a post that some of your readers might find helpful if you don’t mind.. Thanks again for the reminder–I think I’ll go give my husband a big hug just for being in my life!~Kathy

      I’m a firm believer in {{{Hugs}}}, Kathy. Thanks for the link. I will check it out now. Kozo

      • Hi Kozo…thanks for dropping my site and saying hi…and now that you’ve been there…can you tell me how I can add your “Bloggers for Peace” badge on my site….do you have the “language” I can add so that I can put it on my right hand column in as a text widget??? So much of what I write about is related to peace so it really needs to be on my page…. Thanks oooooo (these are my hugs back!) ~Kathy

        Here are the instructions to put he badge on your sidebar. Sorry, they are a bit complicated.
        First, right click on the badge on my site and “save image as…” on your computer.
        Next, you need to upload it as an image in your media file as if you were going to put it in a post. I see that you have images on your site, so it is the same process. Go to Dashboard>Media>add new. Upload image from your computer to wordpress–it is probably in your downloads folder.
        Then add the “image” widget to your sidebar–dashboard>appearance>widgets>drag image widget to sidebar.
        Then you go back to the media and click on edit next to the badge. You will get a “file URL” on the right.
        Copy and paste that in your image widget where it says “image URL.”

        If you have any questions feel free to ask on this comments board.
        Thanks again for joining the team.

    I wasn’t that into reading until I met a guy whose apartment was chock-full of books. (Turned out I hadn’t been introduced yet to the things that interested me to read.) And we had really interesting philosophical conversations, too. And he wanted to change the world. That relationship showed me the potential that relationships could have for both personal and social transformation.

    And I also had another boyfriend whose mind rewired after a relationship with me. He’d thought that sex and relationship were the same thing. I ended up having an effect on him similar to the one I just described above.

    • Kozo Hattori says:

      Sounds like a good guy, Georgia–tons of books, philosophical, and personal and social transformer.
      Like I said in a previous comment, you have rewired a lot of people’s view on sexuality. {{{Hugs}}} Kozo

    Relationships are about reciprocity (the same as nature) or about filling gaps. Where one is weaker, the other is stronger, and vice versa, etc.; this is how relationships grow, evolve and change together. This is how it is possible to prevent a relationship from becoming stagnant or stale overtime as each gets to know the other. YES! Absolutely, relationships can free the mind, in this way, one hopes to never get to completely know one’s significant other, as not only do we grow as individuals we grow together. To me, that is what the epitome of “union” or “coupling”.

  7. Kozo, I love your posts!!!! For me–my new healthy relationships (romantic and non romantic) have helped me re-wire my brain “thought patterns”. I do know there is still a lot “off” on the way I personally interpret things inside a relationship but, there is a positive re-wiring process happening within me that I can feel and see (and so can others) and the biggest improvement…they are healthy ones!! and my mind breathes….”ahhhhhhhhh thank you” with a happy dose of relaxation and relief!

    • Kozo Hattori says:

      Yay, 1G4AW, I believe that our spiritual path has to do with re-wiring towards the Light of Compassion. Some people call that re-wiring rebirth or awakening. Either way, sounds like you are skipping down the path. {{{Hugs}}} Kozo

    Very nice post. Any relationship can rewire your mind if you don’t expect to much, are not dependent on others for your peace of mind and happiness. In other words you don’t give remote control of your happiness to others. Relationship flourishes if love compassion, compatibility and understanding is there.

    • Kozo Hattori says:

      I completely agree, Indira. I would say that half the programming we are now running in our minds comes from letting others remote control us into belief patterns that are not healthy. Thanks for your insightful comment. {{{Hugs}}} Kozo

    My mind stubbornly resists rewiring when it comes to camping. I’ve done it because W loves it so much, but if he weren’t around I would never think to do it on my own. I guess I’ve done a lot of things simply for the company even when I personally think it’s stupid. Your family will have a lot of happy memories from this trip. That’s what matters. ♥

    • Kozo Hattori says:

      It might not rewire in terms of camping per se, Grandmalin. It might be more subtle like having dirt in your toes without worrying about it.
      Yes, happy memories are what really matters. {{{Hugs}}} kozo

    Awesome vid Kozo, I love the way you break down the various aspects of our conditioned mind and learn how to really embrace new experiences for a deeper fuller life. Thanks for sharing this, you make a great relationship counselor. Blessing to you and family! {{{hugs}}}
