Are You An Eternal Romantic? Discover The Law Of Attraction For Relationships And Love

It was the great thinker Ralph Waldo Emerson who proclaimed the words, ‘love and you shall be loved’. When it comes to the Law of Attraction and love, this is one of the key philosophies at the heart of our teachings.

As most of us are already aware, love is one of humanity’s biggest preoccupations. The very driving force behind our existence and the power source of all manifestation, our love for things is behind every dream, every ambition and every action we ever choose to make. We should find love to be present in many aspects of our lives, regardless of whether we choose to acknowledge it or not, and it is because of this that love should never be underestimated in its importance to our overall happiness and well being. All joy stems from some form of love – so without it, where would we be?

It doesn’t matter if you are looking to find your life’s one great love, maintain the love within a current relationship or simply enjoy feeling loved within a network of loving family and friends – it is not uncommon for many people to become bogged down with negative feelings surrounding the subject of love (or lack of love) in their lives. Unfortunately, it is these fears and preoccupations with ‘doomed’ love that are held onto by so many which prevents them from forming the kind of loving relationships that they so desperately long for.

10 Ways to Have Peaceful, Loving Relationships

Though Valentine’s Day is coming up next month, this is not a post about romance. It’s about any relationship—with your brother, your mother, your coworker, or your friend.

And I admit I am not an expert.

I’ve made a million and one mistakes in relationships. I’ve expected too much. Or not asked for what I needed in fear of rocking the boat. I’ve been competitive. I’ve been suspicious. I’ve been dependent. I’d like to think what redeems me from all these mistakes is that I’ve also been honest.

Life Patterns of Strong Families

In studies conducted in the United States and around the world several characteristics of strong families were found. These qualities are:

Commitment. Members of strong families are devoted to the well-being and happiness of the other members. They value family unity. Commitment serves as a firm foundation for strong family relationships. This means that:

  • the family comes first.
  • work responsibilities come second.
  • each family member is precious.
  • bad times do not destroy relationships.
  • there is sexual faithfulness to the marriage partner.
  • forgiveness is readily available.
  • priorities must be established.
  • some sacrifices must be made.
  • some common goals must be shared.
  • traditions are established and cherished.
  • love is conditional.

True Romance

The reason true romance is nearly dead in this generation is that people have forgotten the difference between love and romance. Individuals begin with concepts born out of sappy movies and penny-novelettes, confuse one with the other, and claim sorrow when they are hurt by their own unachievable expectations. The truth, which few poets, actors, and authors bother to tell us is that romance is individualistic and not idealistic.

People love to be on a mission with romance, and it is often their last hope. Most thinkers insist that this incessant search for a partner is deep-seated in the insecurity and fear of loneliness, whereas others argue that insecurity is what constant longing leads too. The answer probably lies in the fact that these two aspects of human life are mutually inseparable, and, at times, one can be both the cause and the effect. In the face of all this, people are forced to question where does true romance lie, and in what capacity are they to seek it. This is an enigma that has haunted humanity ever since the idea of romance was conceived and people began to approach love as a science, leaving out instincts and relying up on reasoning.

The only way to approach to romance is to realize that answers cannot and should not be sought outside the self. The answers are present inside each individual. The interpretation of love and romance should only be derived from personal insight, as every other mode of answering is false and deceptive.

Love, Sex, Lust – Which Is It?

This article is not intended to offend any personal belief. It is only to ask questions and get your mind in gear, especially if you are “in love” and cannot think of anything else very clearly. We are speaking of “in love” rather than loving someone. We all know the difference relative to the heights of emotion. Let us take one of those love at first sight situations. Is it love at first sight or lust at first site? Can you love an evil person because they look good? Well if you only saw them across a room and did not know them, it would be hard to argue it is anything but lust at first site. Oh but you are not that way. You would not lust, it isn’t proper. Well it certainly is not proper to love a good looking evil person from across the room, so you just lusted!

When you shout “I love you” at the height of having sex, do you? People have been known to scream, the wrong name during climax and be thoroughly embarrassed. That emotion was lust was it not? Or did you shout who you truly love, or did you shout the name of one with whom you usually share sex? Or perhaps a high school love.

Why does deep abiding love wear off? Why is it our grandparents generation have fewer divorces? Did they love deeper or have less sex before marriage and learned real love before they learned sex? Hmmmmm.
