Relationship Exercise Challenges

Looking down from Artist's Point, Mount Baker WA

This is another “Simple Truths” video, about improving relationships.

I can’t imbed “Simple Truths” videos, because they want folks to visit their site.  So here is the URL.

Many of the principles are totally effective, but it requires the ability to love, unconditionally.  Many of us need supernatural intervention to reach that sweet spot, where it is possible to love others unconditionally.  Always. There are factors beyond following the video premises that include our own level of serenity (can we stop our negative response to another and challenge ourselves to follow the premises?), or whether or not the person we are dealing with has too many problems in life to be penetrated with the unconditional love.  But I enjoy positive suggestions, and invite you to watch it.

How many of these principles can we try this week?

    The 100/0 principle sounds pretty much like the definition of Agape love — a totally selfless love where you approach a relationship with the welfare of the other person as your main priority. The world would be a wonderful place if we all could function that way, wouldn’t it?

    I like that 100/0 principle, Marion. It’s hard to do on a full time basis, but good for my sould when I can maintain it. Thanks for reminding me.

      I suspect a caution is needed, if folks are learning to be gently assertive. (who me?) if offered in love … asking for something, or informing someone about things that bother, can still be 100-0. But the ball bounces back and requires us to notice our expectations, and no matter what, challenge the negative thoughts and keep reaching for the positive ones.
