The World's Biggest Love Problem

Our main problem with love is this: Lack of consciousness. Pure and simple.

Although we know in our heart of hearts exactly what (and where) love really is, with our minds we have forgotten it.

As young children we used to know the bliss and ease of the unconditional love that exists inside of us, but the stress and pain of growing up in an unconscious world has made us wary, defensive and fixated in ways that are damaging to ourselves and others.

Sorry, but Your Mind Has Been Infected ...

If your mind were a computer, I would submit to you that is has been infected by a virus which distorts your way of thinking, believing, deciding and looking at yourself and the world.

If you are like most people you are fixated on your needs and the external world (particularly other people), and you have powerful defensive mechanisms.

While there is absolutely nothing WRONG with this, this is a page with important love tips, and I have to tell you that it DOES have some very undesirable consequences in most areas of your life. Including your love life.

Your Love Life Suffers

In short, the above mentioned things make something that is really the most simple and natural thing in the world - love - seem complicated and difficult. Those things cause feelings of insecurity, inadequacy, jealousy, loneliness, sorrow and countless other kinds of suffering to arise.

Love is also just about the most desirable and wonderful thing in the world, and to have it linked to that kind of hardship and pain seems almost perverse. Nevertheless this is the reality for most people ... including you, most likely, or you wouldn't be reading these love tips.

Break the Vicious Circle

How to Move On

By becoming more conscious of the (absolute) truth about love, you do your bit in helping all the children that you come into contact with stay open and loving. You also help everyone else around you - and yourself. Step by step you can fix your love problems and achieve your goal of experiencing love.

Love tips:
No matter what your love problem or love goal is, it will help you to have these primary aims:

- to make yourself more conscious; to remember the real connections, the main truths about love

- to de-program yourself and remove the virus; to de-learn any and all misunderstandings about love

- to acquire some concrete, useful tips and tools, that you can use in your everyday life

Love Tips about Your Love Goals and Love Problems

Love is not difficult, it is simple and easy. It is our most fundamental nature. We do however, find love extremely difficult. In fact it is one of the things we find most difficult. But do not despair. There is hope! Some other powerful love tips concern goals and challenges. Below, you will find some of the most basic and common goals, problems and challenges most of us have in relation to love.

The primary goal is easy: To experience love; the more, the better!

As far as the problems are concerned, every single one of them is based on a very typical and very common misunderstanding.

Each goal, problem or misunderstanding will be commented briefly upon on this page, and then you can read more by clicking on the associated link (which will take you to a new page, once the links are up and running).

What is Love? - A Definition of Love

Here you can read how the dictionary defines love - and how I define it. My definition of love is more comprehensive than the dictionary's.

I Need Your Love: Yes, It Feels That Way, But Is It True - and Does It Work?

Here's the situation: You love someone (who loves you back - or doesn't, it doesn't really matter). Because you love, or because you are loved, you feel or think that the one(s) you love (and the one(s) who love you) must give you something. That 'something' could be anything, really: love, friendship, loyalty, help, attention, sex ... anything.

Well, sorry to bust your bubble, but that won't work. Not for you, and not for your loved one(s).

This is what you have forgotten (love tips): To distinguish between love and needs; two things that are completely unrelated.

In the western world this is one of the most important and most fundamental misunderstandings of love.

Couple Love: The Mature Love Relationship

A page like this one would not be complete without a short exposition of the nature of the mature love relationship - no it's not about the participants' age, it's about couple love based on unconditional love.

Your love has become 'everyday love' and in your relationship you have problems with practical doings (living together, cleaning, bringing up children, etc.) ... so whether you're actually married or not, you need some love tips and some marriage problem advice.

Love Pain - Love Hurts!

You're with a partner but you experience discomfort (unfulfilled needs, pain, sorrow, etc.) in relation to love. Perhaps your partner isn't giving you enough of something ... attention, help, sex or something else ... to satisfy you. In any case love hurts. You feel 'love pain'.

Here's what you've forgotten (love tips): The more unconditional your love is, the better it feels. Your discomfort stems not from love itself, but from your being closed off to love! Read more love tips abut this on the page Love Hurts.

Losing Love: More Love Pain

You've lost somebody you loved (or who loved you) and it is unbearable. Perhaps he or she left you, perhaps he or she even died.
So, you felt love, but now love hurts, you feel love pain. In some cases even excruciating, unbearable pain. Perhaps you say to yourself that you will never love again.

Does He really love me? A love match test.

Polyamory - Loving More Than One Person

Maybe you've heard about it ... maybe not. Maybe you think that polyamory is just a fancy name for polygamy or even for swinging. Well, it isn't.

Polyamorous relationships are deeply committed love relationships that just so happen to be between more that two partners. In polyamory ALL parties involved are FULLY informed about EVERY aspect of the polyamorous relationship. In fact chances are, that communication levels in polyamorous relationships are much higher than in other kinds of relationships - if they weren't, it just wouldn't work.

And as for polyamory's relationship to swinging - well there isn't one, either. Polyamorous relationships (sometimes called poly relationships) are not focused on sex, they are focused on love, and sex is a way to express that love ... with your partners (polyfidelity).

Does all this sound exotic? Perhaps. But more and more people are living in polyamorous relaionships. They just don't talk about it much. Read more about it in the article Polyamory.
