Have you ever wondered why our relationships require so much work? There's a very simple reason, but it's so easy to miss. What's more, this same unenlightened condition causes much of today's soaring divorce rates, corrupt politics, crime, and even the outbreak of war. In fact, you'd be hard-pressed to find a dark condition in this world that isn't connected to this one unseen problem: The world has handed us unnatural ideas about the nature and purpose of our relationships. That's the problem. The world would have us believe the surface aspects of a relationship are its true value: companionship, conversation, intellectual stimulation, sex, and shared interests. But nothing could be further from the truth. And it's this simple misunderstanding that keeps us from learning the great lesson that love is trying to teach us: The simple act of loving is life's greatest reward. We've all felt the amazing sense of contentment during those moments in our lives filled with true love. But, all too often, we've also watched our relationships become boring, difficult, and distant. Relationships are not supposed to be boring, difficult, or distant. We are meant to have a continual relationship with a love that never leaves our side. Love is not supposed to be a roller-coaster ride, up one minute and down the next. But to reap the wondrous rewards that love has to offer, a change needs to take place in us - one that begins with a new understanding of the way love works. Instead of trying to change the people we relate to, we need to change the way we relate to them. You'll find this extraordinary new understanding in Secrets of Happier, Higher Human Relationships. If you listen to it with an open heart, your relationships will never again be the same.
