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

Love is a mighty power. It is light. It is the energy of life. It brings us into life and sustains us while we live and breathe. Love is an energy, not a substance. It is essence, not matter. You can’t contain it; you can't put it in a box, but you can feel it, taste it, and know it. Its presence is unmistakable. It is exquisite and profound. And when you are in love, nobody, not your best friend, your parents, or even your own parents, or even your own mind can talk you out of it.

A Quote by Tracy Phaup on unique, infinity, authentic, authenticity, and relationship

You are one in infinity.  There will never ever be another you no matter how far into the future - nor how far into the past - we look, and that makes you priceless beyond measure just the way you are.   We all are - and we all forget - that's why we have each other.  It's in the very reminding that we are reminded.

A Quote by Werner Erhard on commitment, service, coach, coaching, relationship, and relationships

My notion about service is actually that kind of relationship in which you have a commitment to the other person.  Now, I don't mean to the person's body or to the person's personality, or to the person's stomach, or the person's almost anything.  What I mean in fact is that for me what service is about is being committed to the other being.  To other person spiritually.  To who the other person is.  Now the problem with that is that, to the degree that you are in fact committed to the other person, you are only as valuable as the degree to which you can deal with the other person's stuff, their evidence, their manifestation, and that's what service is about.  Service is knowing who the other person is and being able to tolerate giving space to their garbage.  What most people do is to give to people's quality and deal with their garbage.  Actually, you should do it the other way around.  Deal with who they are and give space to their garbage.  Keep interacting with them as if they are God.  And every time you get garbage from them, give space to the garbage and go back and interact with them as if they were God.

A Quote by Sogyal Rinpoche on love, attachment, happiness, and relationship

So often it is only when people suddenly feel they are losing their partner that they realize how much they love them. Then they cling on even tighter. But the more they grasp, the more the other person escapes them, and the more fragile the relationship becomes.

So often we want happiness, but the very way we pursue it is so clumsy and unskillful that it brings only more sorrow. Usually we assume we must grasp in order to have that something that will ensure our happiness. We ask ourselves: “How can we possibly enjoy anything if we cannot own it?” How often attachment is mistaken for love!

Even when the relationship is a good one, love can be spoiled by attachment with its insecurity, possessiveness, and pride; and then when love is gone, all you have left to show for it are the “souvenirs” of love, the scars of attachment.

Rare indeed, is the relationship in which the other is not cultivated for what one can get for oneself.

A Quote by Anthony De Mello on relationship, enlightenment, and awareness

To relate is to react. To react is to understand oneself. To understand oneself is to be enlightened. Relationships are schools for enlightenment.

A Quote by Martha Nibley Beck on joy, love, north star, life, purpose, relationship, journey, potential, business, happiness, realization, friends, opportunities, essence, meaning, and purpose

Connecting with the people who are meant to be part of your own North Star is much more important than any aspect of business. It's the essence of happiness, the full realization of your potential for joy.

By the end of your incredibly arduous, disappointing, stressful journey, you will be your true self, in a place where you belong, with friends who truly understand you and bring all sorts of opportunities your way.

Every aspect of your life, whether it's a task or relationship, personal or professional, will be based on love and joy. And when you get right down to it, nothing else really matters.
