"Life cannot subsist in society but by reciprocal concessions"

Samuel Johnson

In fostering a life where love is expressed freely and regularly, it becomes obvious quickly that certain skills become important. Skills such as the ability to forgive and to concede allow us to navigate through the complex world of relationship and the diverse feelings, beliefs and projections that surround and inhabit us. The act of yielding to another’s choice or desire can be a powerful gift of love if it is exercised without resentment or bitterness. An old adage asks “would you rather be happy or right?” A more powerful approach is to concede that different opinions exists among people and that both may be right without negating each other. Maturity in an individual allows them to accept that paradox without having to insist that their way be heard or agreed with.

I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well!
