SMALL Larry James Pic A Personal Message from Larry James:

Honor and obey!

How can such a radical idea work in marriage? For some, maybe. For most, rarely ever.

It is not just the feminists that have driven the phrase, "honor and obey," from marriage vows.

Respect for marriage seems to be going out the window and down the tubes.

Most of us would agree that a major ingredient in marriage is love.

The essence food to the growth of love is respect. Love can only grow where there is mutual respect.

Respect breeds admiration that produces kindness, understanding and love while it nurtures forgiveness.

Disrespect breeds contempt, anger and hate while it smothers forgiveness and understanding.

Honor and R-E-S-P-E-C-T your partner for much better results!

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  For Singles Only - The relationship of your heart's desire will manifest itself when you, in earnest, consistently do everything you can to make it happen. Doing what you can to make it happen means taking care of yourself. It means being okay with being alone; loving your own company. When you reach this level of awareness, your true love will sneak up on you. Be careful not to make the mistake of looking for a relationship. That only keeps it away.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  Affirmation - I am learning to be conscious when I am with my love partner. Many times in the past, I only appeared to be listening. Now I listen. I am conscious of, pay attention to and really listen, with genuine interest, to my lover; my best friend. This new attitude of attention and understanding gives our relationship substance. It gives it depth. It becomes charged with right intention.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  Often we are not present in our relationship. We are either looking into the past with regret or into the future with concern. This is it! To experience the reality of the present we must learn to live in the present; to be present to the experience of right now. The possibilities of the present are only available to those who are willing to live and love in the present. We cannot change the past and a concern for the future allows us to be absent from the present. Both options keep us stuck! Live and love every moment of right now!

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  In a sense, a great love relationship lives on the tip of your tongue. Things go well because you both say so. . . and because of what each of you do. The thoughts you have about yourself, your love partner and your love relationship often end up in the words you speak in your relationship. Words can never be recalled. Once out there. . . they do their intended work; interpreted however they may be by your love partner.

The words you speak determine what shows up in your relationship. Relationships cannot be truly great and utterly incredible unless you make internal changes in the way you think and take caution of the words you speak.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  Imagine a relationship that is unimaginable; one that is so incredible that it ignites infinite possibilities. To do so is to reinvent your relationship moment by moment. The more you mentally experience the excitement of the adventure of being related, the more you will relate in committed ways that enrich and empower each other. The power of a committed relationship transforms it from one of mediocrity and complacency to one that can translate your individual intentions into the reality of a unique and truly awesome experience together.

From the book, "LoveNotes for Lovers: Words That Make Music for Two Hearts Dancing!" by Larry James

Larry gets LoveNotes. . . "Eaks!! While I was afraid to pick up the phone to call you, I knew I needed to. I read in one of your articles that 'you need to take the first step while you are still afraid.' I am so glad I did." - Sally B.

The Love You Deserve The Love You Deserve: 10 Keys to Perfect Love - Scott Peck - With over 50% of all marriages still ending in divorce and so many people struggling with their intimate relationships, something is obviously missing. Scott Peck fills in the gaps. The 10 keys in The Love You Deserve are an intimate, open window into understanding and experiencing the love that each of us - including you - so richly deserves.

Larry's Review: If you are not experiencing the love you deserve, you should read this book and DO the 10 Keys with your partner. This one belongs in your relationship library.

Sample: Stop Attracting the Life You Don't Want! - The real reason people remain captives of unwanted circumstances in their lives is because they've yet to realize this great spiritual secret: Resistance is negative attraction. In other words: the longer we dwell on what we don't want in life, the larger grows that dark dwelling place in which we find ourselves living.

Relationship Humor

•    •    •

The other day, my wife and I got into some petty argument. (I say it was petty. She would say it was Armageddon). As is our nature, neither of us would admit the possibility that we might be in error.

To her credit, she finally said, "Look, I'll tell you what. I'll admit I'm wrong if you admit I was right."

"Fine," I said.

She took a deep breath, looked me in the eye and said, "I'm wrong."

I grinned and replied, "You're right."
