Express love in every interaction
– Being kind and warm to the people
you meet daily builds positive energy, allowing
you to realize your capacity for love. Rather
than save your love for that one “special”
person, treat the world as your lover and
you will never be lonely.
There’s no such thing as
a failed relationship –
When a relationship ends, learn from the
experiences and take the lessons onto
the next. Realize how you grew and what
you gained from that relationship and
you will be able to look at the next with
a greater awareness, both of yourself
and your significant other.
There’s no such thing as casual sex
– Make a distinction between simple
lust and a genuine physical attraction as
an expression of love that can build into
something. With sex we reach the highest
level of our desire to touch and be touched,
and once we’ve done so, it’s
impossible to keep it casual.
Be open to possibility-
Be open to every person you meet and give
them a chance. Waiting for your “dream”
date or a “perfect” person will
leave you lonely and unable to see the diamond
in the rough right in front of you.
Leave your expectations behind–
Going into a date with expectations or an
agenda leaves you unable to enjoy the moment.
Drop any stories you might have. Let the
date unfold and take pleasure in it for
what it is, rather than what you want it
Anger & Jealousy- When they
arise observe them but don’t let these
emotions take hold. They are natural, so
be sure to forgive them in yourself and
others. Don’t obsess on the negative.
Be truly generous – If a
person gives in order to get something in
return, no matter how much they give, they
are not being generous. The actions are
transactional, have expectations and agendas.
Give love and gifts without reminding your
partner that you are giving them.
Explore your attraction to others
– But try to get below the
surface of the attraction. You may find
it isn’t about sex at all but a longing
to fill a need of another kind like friendship
Love means radical acceptance –
If you try to change someone who is not
ready, you are not being loving. And if
you don’t let someone change who wants
to, you are not being loving. Acceptance
of your lover is love, pure and simple.
is the first step towards accepting. Acceptance
of yourself as well as others is the only
way to act with compassion, which is the
highest form of love.
