What do we mean when we say reach your shared reality?

In the world of relationships, it’s easy for us to think “I’m right, and you’re wrong” or “I can’t figure out why you did that.”  or even “How in the world could people possibly do this or that to me?” 

We’ve all been there.

In every situation there are two perspectives: the other person’s reality and our own reality. Yet somewhere in between lies what we call…

Shared Reality…. a place where both sides can truly meet each other.


The key to reaching this shared reality isn’t about clinging to your own convictions and making the other person’s actions wrong. 


Instead, you can try this powerful practice of “assuming the best.”

When you “assume the best,” you recognize that everyone’s doing their best based on what information that they know and have that you may not.


This practice can bridge the gap between misunderstandings and build bridges of empathy in your interactions and connections.

So, the next time you want more love and understanding in your relationships, try practicing the principle of “Assuming The Best”. It’s a small thing that can make a big difference, helping you connect better and really get where each other is coming from.

And if you want to nurture and enhance your relationships and commit to understanding others as you reach your shared reality, join us for the next Wisdom Jam for couples. 

Save your spot for our upcoming gathering hosted by the Eden World Wisdom Council and embrace the principle of “Assume The Best” in your relationship.

Relationship sits at the center point of all human creation. How we are in relationship determines how we are as a society. When relationships thrive, humanity prospers. Eden offers a container, a sanctuary, a home to practice being in sacred union with ourselves, our beloved and each other. By taking complete responsibility for ourselves and living in our full sovereign expression, we bring total presence to our Beloved and our community of greater Eden Beloveds, creating the sacred space to share our deepest needs, fears, and desires. By having the courage to communicate until we discover the larger truth seeking to emerge, we experience the healing and freedom that leads to radical fulfillment. 

Eden is a safe container that supports each of us to meet every part of ourselves with compassion and understanding – especially the places that have been hidden or rejected. This vow of love creates the conditions for us to continuously evolve in an ever-widening circle of beauty and abundance… until the whole world is held in our hearts.
