1.Marriage: Marriage is not a promise to be together throughout all eternity for no one can promise that. It is a promise to be present “now.” It is a vow that must be renewed in each moment if it is to have meaning. ~  Paul Ferrini 

 

2. Fear of Intimacy: People who are afraid of love are ambivalent about giving and receiving. When you are aloof, they feel safe and desire your presence. But when you come close, they get scared and ask you to back off or go away. This emotionally teasing behavior enables them to be in relationship while avoiding intimacy and commitment. If you are drawn into such a relationship, you must face the fact that you too may be afraid to receive love. Why else would you choose a partner who cannot give it?  ~ Paul Ferrini 

 

3. You played the part that I assigned to you to help me to look at feelings of being unfairly treated. Yes, it does look like I was unfairly treated. But I used you, and it was actually orchestrated by me. Can I see that it was a replay of previous events? Can I let it go and choose peace and love? Good! Now what else can we do for each other? It is about no longer identifying with anything that can suffer.

 

4. “If you are trusting in your own strength, you have every reason to be apprehensive, anxious and fearful.” ~ ACIM Lesson 47

1. “This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.”  Dalai Lama

2. It’s our own thoughts that hold the key to miraculous transformation. ~ Marianne Williamson

3. If we would apply this simple principle to our marriage/partnerships/relationships, our relationship would instantly improve!…”Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of our mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up.”

4. One favorite tool for pushing through fears and other negative emotions is the positive affirmation. When we find ourselves confronted with fearful or upsetting situations in life, we simply begin repeating an appropriate affirmation. With constant repetition of this uplifting and soothing statement, the voice of doom and gloom that roams through our mind is replaced with thoughts of peace, power and love. One of the reasons that affirmations are so powerful is that, by replacing negative thoughts with positive thoughts, we are actually moving ourselves from the weakest part of who we are to the strongest and most loving part of who we are. While an affirmation is only one sentence in length, it has a very deep meaning. An affirmation is an encapsulation of a whole wealth of life-affirming thoughts that remind us that we are inherently powerful and loving and there is nothing to fear. Repeating the soothing words over and over again, peace envelopes us like a warm blanket. We are safe. . .all is well. ~ Connie Queen (I choose PEACE)
