“Spiritual teacher David Deida counsels, “Practicing love often means… surrendering all hold on the familiar act you call ‘me.’” By choosing to turn everyday conflict into compassion, we cultivate a more loving relationship through humor, listening, intimacy and generosity, even when someone is acting out, refusing to listen or shutting down.” – excerpt from Wabi Sabi Love: Embracing Imperfections in Relationships  by Arielle Ford

“I used to buy into the whole concept of The One. You know…The One…your loverly soulmate. All perfectly cut to fit your mold. In sync with your values, kisses like a lover should kiss, finishes your sentences, can read your mind with such accuracy that they know exactly what to say, what to get you for your birthday, when to tip toe or sweep you off your feet. Lifetimes together. Riding the same brainwaves. Wants what you want. Harmonious hot perfection. DESTINY. The ONLY one for you. Just…one.

That’s what the 80″s in the New Age got ya: predeterministic thinking that is dangerously narrow — doesn’t leave much room for mystery (maybe The One isn’t who you thought they’d be), and limits your options (what if there’s more than just one?)

As a woman, you can use your masculine discrimination to decide which direction to move in, but when you are polarized into your feminine energy–by a man of great masculine presence, for instance–then you may lose access to your masculine directionality. In moments like these, you may find yourself unable to say no.”  David Deida

As the drama of your relationship (or your career) unfolds through time, remember that this practice of love is always available–and expressive of your deepest truth–right now.”  – David Deida

Under no circumstances can the food be omitted.”- Miss Manners’ Guide to Excruciatingly Correct Behaviour
