relationship

A Quote by Steve Pavlina on business, friendship, relationship, and wall

Treat your business relationships like friendships (or potential friendships).  Formality puts up walls, and walls don’t foster good business relationships.  No one is loyal to a wall… except the one in China.

A Quote by Bill O'Hanlon on change, relationship, and love

It has become fashionable in therapy circles to hold two beliefs: (a) You can't change another person, only yourself; and (b) you shouldn't change yourself for a relationship or for another person... [But] we change each other all the time.  People change for those they love quite often... The relationships that call forth positive change are those that provide a ground of accepting the person... Relationships can illuminate flaws in one's approach to life by exposing one to other ways of thinking and doing things... [Through relationships] we can learn to recognize and change deeply unconscious patterns.

A Quote by Alan Watts on connection, connecting, relationship, relationships, and soul

 As the ocean "waves," the universe "peoples." Every individual is an expression of the whole realm of nature, a unique action of the total universe. This fact is rarely, if ever, experienced by most individuals. Even those who know it to be true in theory do not sense or feel it, but continue to be aware of themselves as isolated "egos" inside bags of skin.

Alan Watts (1915 - 1973)

A Quote by Daphne Rose Kingma on love, future, power, essence, loving, relationship, daphne, rose kingma, presence, joy, and inspiration

The truth is that we have all come from love, but our relationships have often been a detour from love… Love is the river, each human being a droplet of water, and together, in spite of our fears and resistance, we are returning to love, melting and flowing toward home. We’re all looking for more love. It’s that simple. In the end, nothing else really matters to us. In the beginning and in the middle, we’re connected with the forms of our relationships, what they look like, what our parents think of them, how they stack up in the eyes of the world, and whether we’re getting our share of the goodies: sexually, emotionally, and financially.

But in the end, we won’t care about the forms. The forms will be as multitudinous as the stars and all that will matter is the love that was in them. No one can escape the divine upheaval of love. I haven’t; you won’t; our neighbors and strangers and family won’t either. Love is coming to find us. All of us. Because love is our essence. Love is who we are.

A Quote by Daphne Rose Kingma on love, future, power, essence, loving, relationship, daphne, rose kingma, presence, joy, and inspiration

The future of love is true love, a great, sweet love that isn’t pain but joy, not small, but vast, not personal but spiritual. This is where we are going; this is our true destination. Our relationships are creating themselves in wild, new, beautiful, and terribly upsetting forms. They are creating demanding experiences that are necessary for us to expand as human beings and as spirits. All our relationships are in the process of melting, if not from without – as the form of marriage itself is dissolving – then from within, where we ourselves are melting down.

The soul is shifting our relationship focus from form to content, from rigidity to flexibility, from containment to expensiveness, from our emotional needs to love.

A Quote by Daphne Rose Kingma on love, future, power, essence, loving, relationship, daphne rose kingma, presence, joy, and inspiration

Love is mysterious and beautiful. It makes us happy, gives us hope, allows us to believe that the impossible can happen. And yet, it's inexplicable. It can't be defined or analyzed, catalogued or priced. Its premier property is that when it exists, it can never be mistaken for anything else, and nothing else, no matter how worthwhile or supposedly grand, can ever be passed off as love.

A Quote by Daphne Rose Kingma on love, future, power, essence, loving, relationship, daphne, rose kingma, presence, joy, and inspiration

Relationships are the endless interplay of this vast energy of love and all that occurs in our daily human lives. Our desire to feel this love forever, to be in love always, to repeat and endlessly recapture this ecstatic luminous feeling day by day, year after year, with the person who first inspired it in us is not only why we ‘fall in love’ but also why we choose “to have relationships.” It is also why, when our relationships go sour or grow threadbare, we reminisce about the way they once were. We want to reconnect with love. Our greatest desire is to have our relationships return us again and again to the transforming and beautiful experience of the love that first inspired them and brought them into being. We live to love.
