I had no idea what I was in for starting in and in the next five years that followed. I was spent literally and figuratively. I lost all self confidence I had, I was depressed and miserable, and I was fearful of everything including death. Then nine months ago, I replied to a post from a fellow life coach.

She was asking for volunteers to help her acquire the required coaching hours needed to complete her training. I responded with the intention to give back knowing what it was like to be a student. Thankfully the ego did not win. In my time spent with this wonderful likeminded coach, she was also a social worker; I was able to really open up leading to a tremendous breakthrough. My problem was rooted within. I was lacking self-love. This lack affected every aspect of my life. I was able to see how everything was connected to this one thing called self-love.

It was like playing a game of connect the dots of my life. My a-ha moment had occurred. My new intention was to create my self-love. Think of self-love as the center of a wheel. From that center radiates spokes connecting to the wheel.

Each spoke represent various facets in life: family, social, occupational, living environment, romantic, etc. When the center of the wheel is missing or damaged in some way the wheel is not going to work properly. If you love yourself, you love everybody else as you do yourself. As long as you love another person less than you love yourself, you will not really succeed in loving yourself, but if you love all alike, including yourself, you will love them as one person and that person is both God and man.

Thus he is a great and righteous person who, loving himself, loves all others equally. There has been an evolution of the term self-love. A re-evaluation of the term is explored by Fromm in his book. The answers to this question are the key to knowing if you are in an abundance state or lack state; whether or not you have self-love or there is an absence of self-love.

I work with thousands of people, both single and married, who are wanting to start the path, are somewhere on that path, or are stranded by the side of the road.

In helping so many ordinary, struggling people understand the different stages of the LovePath, in helping them learn the art of falling and staying in love, I have seen miracles take place. We have been able to help lovers build relationships that work and keep working.

On the part of the path that constitutes marriage, we have helped thousands upon thousands of couples reach levels of love they never expected to find.

Perhaps even more fascinating, we have a record of accomplishment of saving three out of four crisis marriages—marriages on the brink of ending when the couple attended our Marriage Helper seminar. This approach works; I have seen it. I have lived its success myself, and I have the scars to prove what happens when we stray from the path. I have been interviewed on many radio and TV programs to share the keys of a healthy, thriving, and fulfilling relationship. Now I look forward to sharing those keys with you.

To understand love, Sternberg divides it into its three basic components: intimacy, commitment, and passion. These are not the steps of the LovePath, but rather results of following the LovePath. They are what we seek in true love, and the LovePath brings them into existence for us. Sternberg and others have learned about the dimensions of the love we so want and need. Intimacy Intimacy is being transparent, building trust, and allowing another to look deep into your soul.

Intimacy is closeness, warmth, and the feeling of being bonded together. When men hear the word, they tend to think of it as something they do. Women, on the other hand, think of it as something they feel.

Intimacy is truly knowing one another or, taking the very sound of the word, into-me-see.

Intimacy is being transparent, building trust, and allowing another to look deep into your soul. Intimacy means giving respect, developing deep friendship, and connecting on a level that words never reach. Without intimacy, true love cannot exist. Yet intimacy is one of the most difficult things to master because to achieve it, two individuals must allow their souls to go naked before each other, ensuring that their love is for the real person—not a picture the person has painted.

When one feels intimacy with another, she feels that the other is a friend in the deepest and most meaningful sense of the word. He is one who knows her as she truly is, not as she represents herself in different environments and situations.

He sees her weaknesses, flaws, or failures yet continues to believe the best about her. He understands her deepest desires, her dreams, and her fanciful wishes—even those she would be embarrassed for anyone else to know.

He knows what she is afraid of, what she will fight for, and, perhaps, die for.

Art of Loving, The

He is aware of her consistencies and her inconsistencies, but never bothers to catalog either. He cares about what she wanted to be when she grew up and understands her feelings about what she became instead. Her secrets are safe with him.

Her love. Her total being. She never thinks of the possibility of his betrayal. She knows that he loves her deeply and completely, that he will never leave her, that he would search the earth over for her if she went missing.

If she were in danger, he would protect her. It would not matter whether she was right or wrong; he would never abandon her. He would sacrifice himself for her in battle, even if the battle was one she was wrong to have started. He sees into her soul. Soul mate, you say? That phrase is too trite. A truly intimate relationship is one that exists in the deepest regions of our being, one that is essential to our innermost sense of worth and to our need for security in an insecure world.

It is not just a friendship. It reaches the depths. It is oneness. It is the purest form of love. Not only do most of us crave this kind of love and relationship, we must have it to feel complete. It is the strongest need within us after our need for physical survival—and sometimes it transcends that.

Not long before writing this, I received another letter underscoring this universal desire for intimacy. This particular letter came from a young woman who had recently ended an affair and was struggling to put her marriage back together. No matter how much they worked at it, she was not developing the same level of emotional bridging with him as she had with her former paramour. I need a man who will look inside me, know me, understand me, and love me.

But the only way my husband knows how to communicate right now is to have sex. It was about two people bonding and being totally open to each other. But that is not happening! With my husband, I have to disguise, hide, and whitewash my true feelings. How am I supposed to fall in love again with this man.

Am I wrong to want this soul-to-soul, heart-to-heart level of love? No, she is not wrong.

Her unfaithfulness did not remove her need or her right to have emotional intimacy with her husband. If he chooses to continue his marriage with her, not only will he need to find healing for his own hurt, but he also will have to help heal the hurt in her that made her vulnerable to unfaithfulness.

He must understand her deep-felt need for intimacy and open himself to achieving oneness with her. That level of intimacy goes much deeper than having sex. Passion Passion, too, is much more than sex.

It is a craving for oneness with the other. Sexual passion subsides with the length of relationship, but passion can grow throughout a lifetime. This passion keeps love not only alive but also dynamic, and is even better when older than when young. Whatever lovers feel, they do not hide. They share more than their mutual existences; they share their hearts and their minds. Lovers laugh together, sometimes loudly! Lovers feel free to whoop, holler, sing, dance, throw kisses, or just sit together on a swing in silence.

Whatever they feel, they do not hide. Think of a young man passionately in love. He gets excited at the sight of his lover, thinks about her constantly when he is away from her, and sees her as the most beautiful girl in the world. He would rather be with her than anyone else and cannot imagine anyone making him as happy.

Nothing is more important to him than his relationship with her. He adores her, cannot imagine life without her. Any thought of losing her creates immediate panic. If you have experienced passion for your beloved, you know how wonderful it is—and how we relish the sensations of such intensely romantic love. Commitment Commitment is the bedrock of love.

It is the decision to continue a relationship, to love someone, and maintain the love. It constitutes a measurement of how strongly we value our relationship. When one is committed to another, it means that we will always be there with the other person—no matter what—and for the other person. Commitment keeps lovers together when life and its circumstances try to pull them apart. It gives safety and assurance. Committed lovers know that passing emotions are not a true gauge for the demise of their relationship.

Commitment means that no matter what he feels as she walks out the door in the morning, he knows she is coming back. No pitfall, no person, no situation will be allowed to separate committed lovers.

We want the intimacy and passion that makes love magnificent, but we just as strongly want to know that our lover will be with us tomorrow—and for the thousand tomorrows after that.

We want to know that the other person is with us through thick and thin. Good times and bad. When we deserve our lover and when we do not.Notice if you are blaming. Thankfully the ego did not win.
