Thoughts to Contemplate by Dr. Luann Robinson Hull

Our Ticket to Happiness, Here, Now


No one else has the capacity to give us what we want. And when we finally hit the tipping point that helps us to make that connection, the quintessential theme of our life will become a burning desire to pursue our unlimited potential through the expression of our emerging gifts and talents. This quest is the fuel that drives us toward the state of enduring happiness. It is the “vitality” and “life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action,” unique only to you, that Martha Graham so eloquently captures in her beautiful poem printed at the end of chapter 1 [in my book “Happily Ever After Right Now“]: “the queer, divine, blessed unrest that keeps us marching and more alive than the others (DeMille, 1997).” By accepting the invitation to be “more alive,” we are exposing ourselves to cosmic possibilities. And, everything that will assist us as we “keep the channel open” will show up.

We now (and always) have the opportunity to expand from the primal messages and primitive archetypes that have kept us constricted, closed down, and mired in our individual and combined relationship struggle. Whether seen through the lens of couples, families, friends, communities, or nations, we have all been challenged under the current relationship paradigm, which has its foundation in our primordial instincts based on need, want, fear, force, control, and survival.

In recognizing the driving force behind our fears, we can move to take the necessary measures for change. “Brother Brute” and “Sister Babe” (the names we use for the two extremes from which we have acted out in the past) are old news. Once we become aware of the patterns that they established, we can more carefully begin to notice when we are operating on our conditioned imprints and then move beyond our crude, ancient beginning, creating the possibility for “morphically resonating” into a new way of being.

Each of us have the capacity to tip into this new way of being. You and I are included in this scenario. Let’s do it together.

  1. It’s funny you phrase it as such “current relationship paradigm” – – you are SO right… and I stated this on another blog that was about why people “cheat” and they made the assumption that cheating was “not being monogamous”… which it *can* be, but I was making the point that we must get OUT of our own narrow thoughts as to what a relationship is suppose to look like… cheating is simply conniving and betrayal or dishonesty in action… but regardless… I truly believe we find happiness when we can rise above the current paradigm and define it for our own selves… our own hearts.

  2. Yes… an awakening to that age old epiphany…”heyyyyy… there’s another way of thinking out there?” lol Great post!

  3. Helpful information. Lucky me I discovered your website by chance, and I’m stunned why this coincidence didn’t came about earlier!
    I bookmarked it.
