A Personal Message from Larry James:

Doubt is the stepchild of fear! SMALL Larry James Pic

Fear is the direct opposite of Love and it will keep you from experiencing Love to the fullest.

It is rare that all of our initial choices about the direction to take in our relationships work out perfectly. However, being concerned about whether your relationship is working or will last is an energy drain and stands in the way of doing whatever is necessary to contribute to its success.

The fear that accompanies doubt radically dims our view and hampers our ability to see the many other available choices that can lead us back to Love and out of our dilemma.

Suspend your doubts and disbelief and use your imagination. It will open your eyes. Imagination opens the door to a host of new possibilities and choices to consider. Love will keep the door open.

Sweep doubt away by rediscovering, receiving and giving Love to yourself and everyone around you.

We hope you enjoy our eZINE. Remember to pass it along to your friends! By the way, we would love to hear from you about specific relationship issues you would like to have addressed.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  The psychological importance of working through painful resentments must not be underestimated. When old patterns are broken, a whole new world of possibility is born. Not to release and rise above suppressed feelings of hurt and anger is to remain imprisoned by them.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  For Men Only - When your lover is hurting and tells you so, this is not a request for "Mr. Fix-it." First, she is not broken. Second, always remember, someone who is hurting only needs your love, support and understanding. A warm and tender hug might help. Whisper that you understand and in your best way, let her know she is loved.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  Love is something you do. Love is as love does. Never be content with only telling your love partner you love them; promise to show it in expressions of affection. Plan to be spontaneously affectionate.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  Maturity is the ability to harness your abilities and your energies and to do more than is expected in your relationships. The mature person refuses to settle for mediocrity. They would rather aim high and miss the mark than aim low and hit it.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  Pain is a given. Suffering is optional. Those things that hurt, instruct. Love becomes a deeper experience of unity amid diversity. A commitment to work together rather than run from the problem requires a willingness to risk being hurt and rejected, and yes, at times, even feeling un-loved.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  Growing older together is but another stage of growing up together. Assisting one another in this process allows for a growing together that can only be experienced by a mutually specific intention. Helping one another is at the heart of a lasting friendship. It is the kind of loving guidance that will sustain you in any situation. Looking back you will be able to serenely celebrate the love and support that brought you to the present and know the best is yet to be!

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

Featured Relationship "Books-of-the-Month"
Forgiveness: The Greatest Healer of All Forgiveness: The Greatest Healer of All - Gerald G. Jampolsky, MD and Neale Donald Walsch - This is a small book with a big message; if people are to heal themselves and learn to live with each other in love and harmony, forgiveness must become as important and regular as breathing. The first chapter offers powerful stories chosen to open the reader's heart to the idea of forgiveness. Subsequent chapters explain why so many individuals find it so difficult to forgive, and why holding onto grievances is really a decision to suffer.

Larry's Review: All I can say is: If you feel the need to forgive or feel you need forgiveness, you must read this book. Also read: Forgiveness: What's it For?.

Relationship Humor

During the wedding rehearsal, the groom approached the pastor with an unusual offer:

"Look, I'll give you $100 if you'll change the wedding vows. When you get to the part where I'm to promise to 'love, honor and obey' and 'forsaking all others, be faithful to her forever,' I'd appreciate it if you'd just leave that part out." He passed the minister a $100 bill and walked away satisfied.

It is now the day of the wedding, and the bride and groom have moved to that part of the ceremony where the vows are exchanged. When it comes time for the groom's vows, the pastor looks the young man in the eye and says:

"Will you promise to prostrate yourself before her, obey her every command and wish, serve her breakfast in bed every morning of your life and swear eternally before God and your lovely wife that you will not ever even look at another woman, as long as you both shall live?"

The groom gulped and looked around, and said in a tiny voice, "Yes," then leaned toward the pastor and hissed: "I thought we had a deal."

The pastor put a $100 bill into the groom's hand and whispered: "She made me a better offer." Banner
