Love Is…Listening To Your Heart!

“I think I’m in love,” said Carol. “It sounds like you’re afraid,” I said. “I can’t trust my heart,” she said. “Why not?” “My heart gets me into trouble.” “How so?” “I make bad decisions.” “Your heart would never give you bad advice,” I said. “How do you know that?” asked Carol. “I know that… Continue Reading →

All That Really Matters

I’m flying through the clouds onboard a British Airways flight BA2919 to Denver. Soon we’ll gain enough altitude and we’ll reach the clear blue skies. I’m feeling a big wave of gratitude right now. It’s a full body experience. Why am I feeling so grateful, I wonder. Maybe it’s because I just got a seat… Continue Reading →

The Heart is Not Broken

I’m onboard a British Airways flight to Toronto.  I’m on my way to the Hay House I CAN DO IT event in Toronto, where I’m giving a keynote talk on Loveability.  It’s my good fortune to have talked at two previous Toronto ICDI events. The Toronto crowd is friendly, knowledgeable and appreciative. I’m excited to… Continue Reading →

Today Belongs To Love

We are never more lost than when we are looking for love.  To look for love is to miss the whole point of what love is.  When you catch yourself looking for love, it’s essential that you stop.  Stop everything.  Stop being busy.  Stop chasing the day. Stop telling your story.  Stop, and reset yourself.  … Continue Reading →

Gift Of Self-Love

St Valentine’s Day is one of those days in the calendar that is full of mixed emotions. Some of us look forward to it; and others can’t wait for it to pass. St Valentine’s Day can be full of gifts, but sometimes you have to look past the roses, the chocolates, the advertising and all… Continue Reading →

Loveify Your Relationships

Without further ado, I hereby, forthwith, and so on, officially introduce a new word to the world.  And the word is loveify.  Please welcome to the English language – loveify.  Be sure to add it to your computer spellcheck (otherwise that wiggly red line will keep appearing).  Loveify (pronounced love-a-fahy) is now a linguistical thing, i.e….

The Last Judgment

Michelangelo’s masterpiece, The Last Judgment, which sits on the altar wall of the Sistine Chapel, caused quite a stir when unveiled. Artists in the 16th century were the authors of the day. Everyone was keen to “read” Michelangelo’s latest picture. His work was met with mixed reviews. People had a lot of judgments about The… Continue Reading →

Love 2014

New Year’s resolutions work, sometimes. They tend to work better if you set them more than once a year. They work when you stop trying to change yourself, and commit to being more who you really are. And they especially work when you tear up your long list of great expectations and good intentions, and… Continue Reading →

Scrooge: A Love Story

Last night, Hollie and I watched A Christmas Carol, the version with George C. Scott. This is one of my favorite traditions at Christmas. Every year, I read the book, watch a movie (Alastair Sim is still my favorite Scrooge), or see a theater production. One year, I took twelve friends to see Patrick Stewart’s… Continue Reading →

Gift Of Love

It’s the holiday season! Merry Christmas. Happy Hanukah. Solstice blessings. Happy Bodhi Day. “Tis the season to be jolly, to relax, and also be happy-loving-peaceful-kind-generous-thoughtful-angelic.” No pressure there, then. The holiday season can be a magical time of year, but also very challenging. No matter how much we enjoy it, most of us can sympathize… Continue Reading →

A Grateful Heart

A few weeks after my wife Hollie and I had started dating, I woke up one morning with this burning thought on my mind: How can I tell Hollie how much I love her and how much she means to me? The purpose of my life that day was to find a way to tell… Continue Reading →

How to Make Love Last

Caroline had fallen in love many times. She had recently met a new man. She felt excited, and weary. On their second date, she gave her new man an ultimatum. “If you’re serious about wanting a long-term relationship, come with me to Robert Holden’s Loveability workshop this weekend.” He agreed, much to her surprise, and… Continue Reading →
