A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on relationships, self, love, beauty, essense, and being

When you look upon another human being and feel great love toward them, or when you contemplate beauty in nature and something within you responds deeply to it, close your eyes for a moment and feel the essence of that love or that beauty within you, inseparable from who you are, your true nature. The outer form is a temporary reflection of what you are within, in your essence. That is why love and beauty can never leave you, although all outer forms will.

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on stillness, relationships, meditation, being, words, and thoughts

Most human interactions are confined to the exchange of words — the realm of thought. It is essential to bring some stillness, particularly into your close relationships.

No relationship can thrive without the sense of spaciousness that comes with stillness. Meditate or spend silent time in nature together. When going for a walk or sitting in the car or at home, become comfortable with being in stillness together. Stillness cannot and need not be created. Just be receptive to the stillness that is already there, but is usually obscured by mental noise.

If spacious stillness is missing, the relationship will be dominated by the mind and can easily be taken over by problems and conflict. If stillness is there, it can contain anything.

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on ego, identification, possessions, work, social status, recognition, knowledge, education, appearance, ability, relationships, history, beliefs, and you

The most common ego identifications have to do with possessions, the work you do, social status and recognition, knowledge and education, physical appearance, special abilities, relationships, personal and family history, belief systems, and often political, nationalistic, racial, religious, and other collective identifications. None of these is you.

A Quote by Margaret Wheatley on change, networks, emergence, critical mass, connections, kindred spirits, and relationships

Despite current ads and slogans, the world doesn't change one person at a time. It changes when networks of relationships form among people who share a common cause and vision of what's possible. This is good news for those of us intent on creating a positive future. Rather than worry about critical mass, our work is to foster critical connections. We don't need to convince large numbers of people to change; instead, we need to connect with kindred spirits. Through these relationships, we will develop the new knowledge, practices, courage and commitment that lead to broad-based change.

A Quote by Sam Keen on love, healing, world, passion, fidelity, and relationships

The lover heals the world not by a vague and abstract love for everybody and everything, but by becoming passionate and vowing fidelity to concrete relationships, persons, institutions, and places.

A Quote by Warren on power, wisdom, love, danger, and relationships

 

Power is the ability to act. Wisdom comes from knowing what action to take.  Love in the hands of one, who has neither or one and not the other, is dangerous.

A Quote by Warren on love, sex, couple, marriage, and relationships

 

You do not find love; you decide to love.  Love does not happen to you; it happens in you. The risk of love is declaring that you have decided to love.  Your heart is open and you are exposed, hoping only for mercy from your beloved.

A Quote by Warren on emotion, love sex, man woman, relationships, couples life, living, and desire

 

There are three kinds of love: instinctual, emotional and conscious love.  There is no challenge in the mastery of the first two they precede from human biology and frailty.
