We have written many times about the extraordinary peaceful and passionate nature of our relationship, and in fact our primary goal in all our writings, books and blogs is to spread peace one relationship at a time.

In these very disturbing times, it seems a good moment to focus on this central part of our message. We have a direct experience of peace together that neither of us has known about previously, except as an image or goal. When we speak of this we are not referring simply to the absence of conflict.

For us, peace is not a void described by the absence of conflict, anger or war. Peace is an actual experience. It is filled with calm, assurance of goodness, acute awareness of presence, acceptance of what is, joy and overflowing love.

The Secret to Peaceful Relationships "There was a time when it was very easy for me to be disappointed by other people. I can’t tell you how many times I would feel angry or let down when someone failed to do what I wanted them to do or what they agreed they would do. I would sometimes be filled with strong, uncomfortable feelings in these situations."

10 Ways to Have Peaceful, Loving Relationships "If you’ve ever gotten in a fight only to find yourself wondering what you were really upset about, this post may help you. If you’ve ever been disappointed because someone didn’t meet your expectations, this post may help you, too. Feel walked on and unheard? You guessed it—there’s likely something in here that will help you change that."

5 Rules for Relationship Peace "the tension that actually led to the fight itself almost always related to the deeper issues of whether the partners felt understood or valued.... So it is the nature and degree of interaction between the partners that determines how they get along.  Too little interaction, or too imposing interaction, and things heat up. Both of these relationship mistakes have one thing in common. They lack mindfulness and presence."
