10 Secerts of Love

* The first secret – the power of thought.
Love begins with our thoughts. We become what we think about.Loving
thoughts create loving experiences and loving relationships.
Affirmations can change our beliefs and thoughts about ourselves and
others. If we want to love someone, we need to consider their needs and
desires. Thinking about your ideal partner
will help you recognize her when you meet her.

* The second secret – the power of respect.
You cannot love anyone or anything unless you first respect them. The
first person you need to respect is yourself. To begin to gain
self-respect ask yourself, “What do I respect about myself?” To gain
respect for others, even those you may dislike, ask yourself
“What do I respect about them?”

* The third secret – the power of giving.
If you want to receive love, all you have to do is give it! The more love
you give, the more you will receive. To love is to give of yourself,
freely and unconditionally. Practice random acts of
kindness. Before committing to a relationship ask not what the other
person will be able to give to you, but rather what will you be able to
give them. The secret formula of a happy, lifelong, loving relationship is
to always focus on what you can give instead of what you can take.

* The fourth secret – the power of friendship.
To find a true love, you must first find a true friend. Love does not
consist of gazing into each other’s eyes, but rather looking outward
together in the same direction. To love someone completelely you must love
them for who they are, not what they look like.
Friendship is the soil through which love’s seeds grow. If you want to
bring love into a relationship, you must first bring friendship.

* The fifth secret – the power of touch.
Touch is one of the most powerful expressions of love, breaking down
barriers and bonding relationships. Touch changes our physical and
emotional states and makes us more receptive
to love.

* The sixth secret – the power of letting go.
If you love something, let it free. If it comes back to you it’s yours, if
it doesn’t it never was. Even in a loving relationship, people need their
own space. If we want to learn to love, we must first learn to forgive and
let go of past hurts and grievances. Love means letting go of our fears,
prejudices, egos and conditions.” Today I let go of all my fears, the past
has no power over me – today is the beginning of a new life.”

* The seventh secret – the power of communication.
When we learn to communicate openly and honestly, life changes. To love
someone is to communicate with them. Let the people you love know that you
love them and appreciate them. Never be afraid to say those three magic
words: “I Love You.” Never let an opportunity pass to praise someone.
Always leave someone you love with a loving word – it could be the last
time you see them. If you were about to die but could make telephone calls
to the people you loved, who would you call, what would you say
and……… ……. …why are you waiting?

* The eighth secret – the power of commitment.
If you want to have love in abundance, you must be committed to it, and
that commmitment will be reflected in your thoughts and actions.
Commitment is the true test of love. If you want to have loving
relationships, you must be committed to loving relationships. When you are
committed to someone or something, quitting is never an option. Commitment
distinguishes a fragile relationship from a strong one.

* The ninth secret – the power of passion.
Passion ignites love and keeps it alive. Lasting passion does not come
through physical attraction alone, it comes from deep commitment,
enthusiasm, interest and excitement. Passion can be recreated by
recreating past experiences when you felt passionate. Spontaneity and
surprises produce passion. The essence of love and happiness are the same;
all we need to do is to live each day with passion.

* The tenth secret – the power of trust.
Trust is essential in all loving relationships. Without it one person
becomes suspicious, anxious and fearful and the other person feels trapped
and emotionally suffocated.
You cannot love someone completely unless you trust them completely. Act
as if your relationship with the person you love will never end.
One of the way in which always you can tell whether a person is right for
you is to ask yourself, “Do I trust them completely and unreservedly? ” If
the answer is “no”, think carefully before making a commitment.

Love is Never Silent

Love is Never Silent

A loving heart, a gentle smile
a warm and tender touch
We give so many things in life
but nothing means as much.

A little inspiration
when one loses hope,
A kind word of encouragement
when they no longer seem to cope.

A simple phrase, “I love you”
when no one else is there
Taking hold onto a hand
in a little heartfelt prayer.

Love is never silent
It has so much to say,
And it is our greatest blessing
when we give it all away.
