This Month’s Recommended Titles on Love and Relationships

Tuesday 10th, February 2015 / 11:25

Beside its commercial tradition of exchanging gifts, the origins of Valentine’s Day date back to the Roman holiday Lupercalia and it has been celebrated in many cultures around the world since the 5th century when it started as a liturgical celebration of one or more early Christian saints named Valentinus. Some of Valentine’s Day traditional practices are lost and now became folklore. For example in Great Britain women used to pin four bay leaves to the corners of their pillow and eat eggs, with salt replacing the removed yokes. They believed they would then dream of their future husbands. Also, women used to write their lover’s names on paper and put them on clay balls which they would drop into the water, choosing their future husband in relation to the paper that came up first. {source}. We selected few books on the chemistry of love, science and the secrets of finding satisfying relationships. Here’s a quick look at each of them.

Because of the cycle of karma, soul-mate relationships are often fraught with predictable problems. But true-mate relationships engage our higher selves, inviting us to manifest and express our sacredness.

A Little Book of Love

Love is far more than merely an emotion we feel toward our partners, families, and friends; it is a way of being awake in the world, of living beyond the ego. Moh Hardin offers key insights and practices from the Buddhist tradition for awakening, deepening, and expanding love in our lives, starting with ourselves, then moving outward to our partners and children, and ultimately reaching even strangers, perceived enemies, and all living beings.
