1 to the 10th power

The Power of Thought.
Love begins with our thoughts. We become what we think about.Loving thoughts create loving experiences and loving relationships.Affirmations can change our beliefs and thoughts about ourselves andothers. If we want to love someone, we need to consider their needsand desires. Thinking about your ideal partner will help you recognizehim or her when you meet him or her.
The Power of Respect.
You cannot love anyone or anything unless you first respect them.The first person you need to respect is yourself. To begin to gainself-respect ask yourself: "What do I respect about myself?" To gainrespect for others, even those you may dislike, ask yourself:"What do I respect about them?"
The Power of Giving.
If you want to receive love, all you have to do is give it! Themore love you give, the more you will receive. To love is to give ofyourself, freely and unconditionally. Practice random acts ofkindness. Before committing to a relationship ask not what the otherperson will be able to give to you, but rather what will you be able to give them.The secret formula of a happy, lifelong, loving relationship is toalways focus on what you can give instead of what you can take.
The Power of Friendship.
To find a true love, you must first find a true friend. Love doesnot consist of gazing into each other's eyes, but rather lookingoutward together in the same direction. To love someone completely youmust love them for who they are, not what they look like. Friendshipis the soil through which love's seeds grow. If you want to bring loveinto a relationship, you must first bring friendship.
The Power of Touch.
Touch is one of the most powerful expressions of love, breakingdown barriers and bonding relationships. Touch changes our physicaland emotional states and makes us more receptive to love.
The Power of Letting Go.
"If you love something, set it free. If it comes back to you it'syours, if it doesn't it never was." Even in a loving relationship,people need their own space. If we want to learn to love, we mustfirst learn to forgive and let go of past hurts, and grievances. Lovemeans letting go of our fears, prejudices, egos and conditions. "Today I let go ofall my fears, the past has no power over me- today is the beginning ofa new life."
The Power of Communication.
When we learn to communicate openly and honestly, life changes.To love someone is to communicate with them. Let the people you loveknow that you love them and appreciate them. Never be afraid to saythose three magic words: "I Love You." Never let an opportunity passto praise someone. Always leave someone you love with a loving.
The Power of Commitment.
If you want to have love in abundance, you must be committed toit, and that commitment will be reflected in your thoughts andactions. Commitment is the true test of love. If you want to haveloving relationships, you must be committed to loving relationships.When you are committed to someone or something, quitting is never anoption. Commitment distinguishes a fragile relationship from a strongone.
The Power of Passion.
Passion ignites love and keeps it alive. Lasting passion does notcome through physical attraction alone, it comes from deep commitment,enthusiasm, interest and excitement. Passion can be recreated byrecreating past experiences when you felt passionate. Spontaneity andsurprises produce passion. The essence of love and happiness are thesame; all we need to do is to live each day with passion.
The Power of Trust.
Trust is essential in all loving relationships. Without it oneperson becomes suspicious, anxious and fearful and the other personfeels trapped and emotionally suffocated. You cannot love someonecompletely unless you trust them completely. Act as if yourrelationship with the person you love will never end. One of the waysyou can tell whether a person is right for you is to ask yourself: "Do I trust themcompletely and unreservedly?" If the answer is "no", then you mustthink very carefully before you make any type of a commitment.
