Successful Relationships Reading Corner

This week, we wrote about how to create relationships where peace reigns, and the parallels between personal and world peace. Here are some articles on peace, plus the poem that inspired the blog.

What If We Ended War? “If you could push a button and end war on planet Earth, would you do it? How would a global farewell to arms change the planet, and how would we handle the realized dream of world peace?”

Is It a Problem That My Relationship Has No Problems? “Dear Therapist, My girlfriend and I have been dating for about ten months, and everything is going great. We are madly in love with each other, we cannot seem to find enough time to spend together, and we constantly shower each other with affection. By way of brief background, we are in our upper-30s and have each been in other long-term relationships that all involved some level of strife and all ended short of marriage. In contrast to our previous relationships, the two of us have not fought about anything and have had no significant disagreements. So how do we know whether we are going to be able to overcome the inevitable hardships of sharing a life together without having worked through smaller arguments as a dating couple?”

V’ahavta — this is the poem that so impressed Phil.
