Love and Relationships Quotes

If you are going to fall in love, try to make your relationship one that generates great spiritual creativity, one that is mutually enriching.

Even married people were once strangers. Therefore, without patience and the effort to understand one another, things are likely not to go well. We need patience in order to become happy.

There are many who dream about experiencing happiness without the patience. But that is a dream. And a dream is just that--a dream, a fairy tale. It is to wish for a childish, easy life. This illusion breaks up many marriages. The pursuit of such happiness can only make one miserable.

It is important to make the effort to calmly construct something together. From there, real love develops. Real marriage is when you have been married for twenty-five years and feel an even deeper love than you did when you first met. Love deepens. Love that does not is merely on the level of simple likes and dislikes.

True love should be transformative, a process that amplifies our capacity to cherish not just one person but all people. It can make us stronger, lift us higher and deepen us as individuals. Only to the extent that one polishes oneself now can one hope to develop wonderful bonds of the heart in the future.

Ideal love is fostered only between two sincere, mature and independent people. It is the inner struggle to polish these attributes that is the key. ... Real love is not two people clinging to each other; it can only be fostered between two strong people secure in their individuality.

To overcome the sorrow that accompanies any type of separation, such as death or divorce. The vital thing is to continue advancing. Do not look back. Just forge on. There are many reasons why people bid farewell to one another. People have their own thoughts and situations. The deep scars within your heart may not heal quickly. Yet brace yourself so you can look forward. You should strive to move on, cutting through the clouds in your heart. As long as you advance, new hope will be born. The sun will rise. Only when you continue to advance can you encounter an even better, more wonderful you.

We can lose ourselves in romantic attachment, but the truth is, the euphoria is unlikely to last for long. Indeed, the likelihood of undergoing suffering and sadness only grows over time. As long as we remain unable to redress our own weaknesses, we will be miserable no matter where or to whom we may take flight. We can never become truly happy unless we ourselves undergo a personal transformation.

Daily life can seem all too drab and unexciting. Living itself can sometimes seem a strain, and few of us realistically expect what joy we feel to last forever. But when we fall in love, life seems filled with drama and excitement. We feel like the leading character in a novel. But, if you get lost in love just because you are bored, and consequently veer from the path you should be following, then love is nothing more than escapism. What you are doing is retreating into a dream world, believing that what is only an illusion is actually real.

If you are neglecting things you should be doing, forgetting your purpose in life because of the relationship you're in, then you're on the wrong path. A healthy relationship is one in which two people encourage each other to reach their respective goals while sharing each other's hopes and dreams. A relationship should be a source of inspiration, invigoration and hope.

Hey It's all about love this month....

Mastery Of Love

After reading "the 4 Agreements" by Don Miguel Ruiz I bought his book called "the Mastery of Love". Here are some quotes from this book.
"We are masters because we have the power to create and to rule our own lives"
"You are the way you are because that is what you believe about yourself"
"The real us is pure love; we are Life"
"What we call education is nothing but domestication of the human being"
"Humans pretend to be something very important, but at the same time we believe we are nothing"
"We learn to be right and to make everyone else wrong. The need to be "right" is the result of trying to protects the image we want to project to the outside. We have to impose our way of thinking, not just onto other humans, but even upon ourselves."
"Life brings you exactly what you need"
"Happiness never comes from outside of us"
"Your whole life is nothing but a dream. You live in a fantasy where everything you know about yourself is only true for you. Your truth is not the truth for anyone else."
"Love has no resistance. whatever we do is because we want to do it"
"Selfishness comes from poverty in the heart, from the belief that love is not abundant"
"Your reactions are the key to having a wonderful life"
"You are responsible for the consequences of whatever you do, think, say, and feel."
"Life doesn't need to be justified or judged"
"Life is not the body; it is not the mind; it is not the soul. It is a force"
"You are what you believe you are"
"Forgiveness is an act of self-love"
"You cannot be happy if you don't love yourself"
"You are alive because of the power of God, which is the power of Life"
"Whatever we believe rules our existence, rules our life"
