Asian Date — Love Knows no Boundaries

So, ego not only fears that loving will result in hurt, it also fears that if we love too deeply, too happily, we will abandon the ego-concept (of separation and self-protection) altogether. Ego fears its undoing in love.

But then so are commitment, surrender, and trust. Even pleasure threatens ego, particularly great pleasure. A lot of love is too much for ego. Too much to give. Too much to take. If ever love raises its beautiful head too high, ego gets uncomfortable, and reacts in ugly ways, because it knows that if love rules in our hearts and minds, egoism is out.

True love is like a great fire that arises in our hearts. If it is allowed to burn high enough, it will melt down the walls, the separation, the distance. It will bring about a fusion of souls, and give us an awareness and experience of our unity, our togetherness, our connectedness.

10 Tips for Setting Boundaries with Difficult People

It is okay by the True Self that love takes us over. It is okay by the True Self that we move into our real Nature: togetherness, unity, passion, desire, at-one-ness. We are of that Nature. And the True Self knows that Nature will not hurt us, because it us. We are bigger than the walls of the body container, by far. This is why we can say, "Friends, whatever blends, the chord is you"—and it.

What Do All Healthy Marriages Have In Common – Boundaries

Damn, Doc, I wish you would have written this a couple months ago, because I would have ended my last relationship a lot sooner. Here was the deal: I was dating a girl for about a year and I thought things were only going to escalate into marriage. Hell, I was in LOVE with her, I would do anything for her. But, I also didn't realize that she was overstepping my boundaries because she NEEDED me to text or call her every single day to let her know that I was thinking about her. We NEEDED to go out every single day, since we couldn't spend time in her place or mine because her mother disapproved of the fact that I was not Jewish. So I NEEDED to pay for every single date while I barely had any money from my temp job that I have while I wrap up school. I NEEDED to comfort her every single time her and her mother would have an argument, which was about every other day. Also, I NEEDED to take her on vacation so we can have alone time. I didn't realize it at that time, but she was genuinely pressuring me into getting cruise tickets. Originally she wanted a whole week, but I talked her down to a weekend because of school and work (a victory in my eyes, even though I still had to pay $525).

Setting and Enforcing Healthy Boundaries - Terri Cole

By the 1890s America was caught in the throes of a spiritual crisis affecting Christendom worldwide. Modern scientific discoveries had so undermined a literal interpretation of sacred scripture, that for many educated and thoughtful people, it was no longer certain that God was in his heaven and that all was right with the world. These rapid changes and transformations in almost every aspect of traditional faith, had such irreversible corrosive effects on religious orthodoxy, that they were dubbed, "acids of modernity." They ate away at received convictions, and ushered in an unprecedented erosion of belief. People like my grandparents, brought up with rock-solid belief in the infallible word of God, found their faith shaken to its very foundations. It was as if overnight they suddenly awoke to a new world governed not by theological authority but by scientists. New disclosures from the respected disciplines of geology, biology, and astronomy challenged and shattered Biblical accounts of the origins of the natural world and our place and purpose in it. Sigmund Freud captured the spirit of the age well when he said “the self-love of mankind has been three times wounded by science.” The Copernican Revolution, continued by Galileo, took our little planet out of the center position in the universe. The Earth, held to be the physical and metaphysical center of the Universe, was reduced to a tiny speck revolving around a sun. Then Darwin all but eliminated the divide between animal and man, and with it the "special creation" status enjoyed by humans. Darwin, moreover, diminished God. The impersonal forces of natural selection kept things going; no divine power was necessary. Nor, from what any competent scientist could demonstrate with any factual certainty, was any Divinity even evident—either at the elusive "creation," or in the empirical present. Karl Marx people portrayed people as economic animals grouped into competing classes driven by material self-interest. Finally, Freud himself characterized religious faith as an evasion of truth, a comforting illusion sustained by impulses and desires beyond the reach of the rational intellect. Nietzsche's famous declaration that “God is Dead” may have seemed extreme, but few would have denied that God was ailing. And certainly the childhood version of a personal, all-powerful God that created the world and ruled over it with justice and omniscience was for many a comforting vision lost forever.
