It is a given truth that there are people out there in the world, married and single, who are afraid of allowing any emotional attachment or involvement in a relationship. This is a destructive element inanyone's life.
Some have been burned, badly burned in a relationship. Some are afraid of being burned.
Finding and being with that special person, that "bosom friend", as Anne Shirley of "Anne of Green Gables", mentions, is not easy to do. And not automatically maintained, when found. But to exclude oneself from the chance, is to never have the chance. To exclude oneself from LOVE, one never truly knows LOVE.
Depth of passion comes with a price: depth of feeling. You cannot care for others until you care about others.
It is an awesome experience to have someone massage and caress your own flesh. But it is an even more awesome and fulfilling experience when someone holds and caresses your own longing heart.
One cannot experience the depth of joy of turly knowing someone, truly investing hope in their kindred spirit, without an equal risk of disappointment and pain.

8 Keys to Lasting Love
My granddaughter, Merritt Miles, was the inspiration for this CD, 8 Keys to Lasting Love. When Merritt was five years old I read a fairy tale to her and was very disturbed by the ending, "And they lived happily ever after." As she could not read yet, I took the liberty of changing the ending to "They began the work of creating a very good marriage." I didn't want Merritt to think that marriage was so simple or that it just happened that you lived happily every after, as so many of my clients believed. As a marriage and family therapist for thirty years, I have seen the pain people experience on their honeymoon when they wake up and realize they have married a mere mortal.

Is Your Soulmate an Idiot?
Lately, I think people are investing too much energy in the idea that they "must find their soulmate." Where do we get this idea that we are somehow not complete unless we are connected to another person? What are you? An electrical outlet waiting for a plug, so you can finally light up the world? Frankly, when I hear the word "soulmate" I tend to give a little shudder, especially when I think about some of the people in my past that I have considered to be my soulmates. Quite frankly, most of my soulmates were idiots! The Buddha would say that they were also my teachers -- people I have known in a previous life time who have come back in this lifetime to teach me a lesson. Boy did they, but unfortunately, it sometimes takes several soul mates to teach us just one lesson. (Hint, hint -- I think the lesson is supposed to be about "letting go" and stop trying to control, or own people -- a common problem in this society.)
What Is Love And The Love Equation
What is Love? This question has bothered me for a long time. After listening to many perspectives and examining Love from several angles, the thought came to my mind that we have over-complicated Love and need easier to understand models. I decided to put forward two equations, one defining the relationship between Love and Fear and the other about Love itself. The first equation is:
