I believe in love. That’s why I wrote the book Sacred Love. . .
I believe in the power of love and the importance of being in a loving relationship throughout our lives. I believe in the longevity of love and the importance of separating our ego from our love. I believe that relationships underpin most of our life’s journey. I believe that a loving relationship with a person who has an open heart, is a truly spiritual thing. More important than meditation in a cave or bending over until our back is tied in knots. I believe in love and the importance of it to humanity, community and family. I believe that love is sacred.
I believe that all people want to be loved, want to be in love and want to give love. But few know how. I believe that few people can separate their expectations, religion and beliefs (ego) from their love. I believe that most relationships suffer because of this. So many people tell me that the honeymoon cannot last forever, and I totally disagree.
We have sent people to the moon, but we know so little about the most important things on earth. Like love. We mistake possessing people with loving them. We think being with someone while we are busy doing something else, like talking on the mobile, is romantic. We think occasional efforts and apologies are going to make up for clumsiness and ignorance, but we are wrong.
Love is cumulative. It’s what you do moment by moment, day by day, week by week that matters. Here are ten do’s and ten don’ts that we can absorb into our daily routine of love. Follow these rules and your honeymood will last forever.
Sacred Love - The ten daily do’s and don’ts of perfect love.
Do remember to show appreciation for the small things Don’t be afraid of challenge. It’s just your ego having a bad hair day.
Do treat everyday as a valentines day. Love is a lifestyle. Don’t let work, worry and stress cross the line. Learn to draw the line.
Do support your partners dreams Don’t focus on the negatives.
Do compliment your lover. People become as you treat them. Don’t take love for granted. Turn off the phone, light a candle, buy a gift.
Do build a sacred space for love Don’t try to change your partner.
Do learn to stop. Don’t treat your partner like a possession.
Do have a purpose greater than you Don’t react – they are the mirror of what you don’t like about yourself.
Do take responsibility. Nobody can do to you more than you do to yourself. Don’t get jealous. Of course others will see the beauty in those you love.
Do be humble. Listening and being 50% wrong is natures aphrodisiac. Don’t let fear motivate you. What you fear comes near.
Do give more than you expect to get. The art of love is in giving it. Don’t let friends, relatives or children dictate the terms of your relationship.
Do remember, that everything you think, do and say public and private, affects your relationship. Don’t try to be one person at work and one person at home. It’s unsustainable.
Go down this list, I assure you that you will find the reasons that your relationships have either succeeded or failed. Remember, love means contentment, and contentment means not wanting to change anything, just appreciating what is, as it is.
