Virtual Relationship Counselor
The virtual relationship counselor must have the ability to see people as they are. This means having the ability to ignore their appearance.
It must also be able to remove their personal bias.
It must be able to shed all preconceived notions and expectations, whether it is a client's or counselor's.
The counselor must be able to read between the lines and see people's true intentions.
The counselor should also be able to look at the big picture and see what is causing an issue.
The counselor should be able to see the whole picture and find answers for people.
Any relationship is virtual. What does that even mean? A marriage is a virtual thing as it doesn't exist in reality, but exists only on paper. The marriage was created by the government and the church to conform to their beliefs about how society should be structured; so there's nothing real about it at all.
A relationship between two people is likewise virtual. It exists only as a thought in their minds based on what they think of each other's personalities and how these characteristics, when combined together, create an idea of something that can be called a relationship. In reality nothing has taken place.
Everything that people do is virtual. Where they go, what they eat and drink, all of it is based on the perception of their mind about reality; so nothing anyone does in this world is real.
Relationships between people are created by their thinking about each other, so these relationships also exist only in the mind. That's why they don't last forever.
For example, parents think their children are doing well. Their kids think the same about them. These perceptions of how things seem to be in reality create a perception that they have created a relationship between themselves and their offspring.
This is why the relationship between parents and their children doesn't last forever. When the kids become adults, they think differently about who their parents are than when they were young; so what seems to be a real relationship is actually not that at all.
I have been thinking a lot about relationships lately. It seems to me that there are two ways of developing relationships with others. The first way is when one develops a relationship in order to fulfill the needs that they desire – such as companionship, sex, love, etc.
This is the method of relationships that most humans use in their daily lives. It is not necessarily a bad way to experience relationships, but it does require one to take on a certain degree of responsibility for the well-being of others.
The second way of experiencing relationships is when one develops a relationship with another not because it fulfills their needs, but rather they develop the relationship in order to improve themselves. This can be seen mainly in the context of romantic relationships.
When I say improve themselves, I do not mean that they are selfish and simply wish to gain for themselves. This is because the relationship is usually one of mutual care. Rather than taking responsibility for the well-being of others, both parties take responsibility for each other's well-being.
For example, let us say that two people are in a relationship with each other.
One of the people in the relationship (Person A) has a need for companionship and love, while the other person (Person B) has a need for knowledge.
If we accept that the human realm is, in fact, inherently fictional by design as opposed to being an actual reflection of reality, then it automatically follows that any relationship within said realm must necessarily be a fictional construct as well. If one accepts this premise as true (and I do), it means that all relationships are virtual relationships; some more real than others.
For example, a relationship with one's spouse is very real and has actual benefits in the form of shared resources. A relationship with a pet on the other hand may be considered less 'real' but still exists within an established framework that defines its boundaries.
Outside of the human realm, one cannot be said to have a relationship with anything. For example, it is commonly believed that one can 'have' a pet such as a cat or dog. This is not possible because no animal belongs to any other animal; they are all independent agents who live in their own world and make their own decisions.
The only difference between the human realm and animal world is that within the former, humans have created a fictional framework to facilitate social interactions such as marriage. Within this 'game' (for lack of a better term), two or more people agree to share resources in exchange for their company.
If we accept that this game is fictional in nature, it automatically follows that the people involved are fictional as well. This means they can be anything within the confines of their own minds; they do not have to act according to human expectations or limitations. In other words, humans can choose what type of person they want to be.
By becoming a different type of person, one can easily change the nature of their relationship with another. Therefore, it is possible to have a virtual relationship with someone who is not your spouse.
