"Nothing ever goes away until it teaches us what we need to know".
"Cherishing, pleasure and joy are what make a relationship worth fighting for these days. The sense of being cherished and of being able to cherish - this is the very core of positive intimacy. It's what gives us strength to withstand troubled times; it's what gives us the motivation to stretch and grow." Terry Real-"New Rules of Marriage"
Praise and blame, gain and loss, pleasure and sorrow come and go like the wind. To be happy, rest like a great tree in the midst of them all. From Buddha's Little Instruction Book
"I would say that Tapas Acupuncture Technique reunites a person with parts of himself or herself that have been locked away or frozen in time. There are many ways to describe the results of TAT. Integration, harmony, peace, unity, connectedness, relatedness, oneness and wholeness are a few of the terms people have used to express how they feel after doing TAT." Tapas Fleming-creator or TAT
cannot sustain the intimacy you enjoyed in the early stage of your relationship
unless you are willing to cherish each other in some of the ways that you did
at that time.You will not feel like
lovers unless you are willing to behave like lovers."
Author: Terrance Real - New Rules of Marriage
do you batten down the hatches,
fortify the armory,
build ten times higher the siege wall around your tender hope exposed
do you vitrify
...or do you leave all the windows shattered,
allowing the breath of the world
to sweep through your
do you go to sleep at night
prepared for nightmares
but leaving all the doors unlocked
that no one can steal from you
what you give away willingly
do you weep to know such safety?
