"Learn to love yourself in the soul way, by perceiving in meditation the hidden joy of your own being. Then, with a love decreasingly selfish, reach out to touch your spouse, your children. Refine your love so that it becomes ever more pure, containing less and less of the consciousness of “I and mine.” Love your family as you ought to love yourself - for their souls, not only for their bodies and personalities. Then expand that love outward to include your neighbors, your countrymen, all mankind, and all sentient beings—everywhere. In this way your love will expand to become the love of God. An outward expansion of love is what Yogananda called the social way of attaining cosmic consciousness. And a very important balance it is to the inner path of seeking union with God in meditation."


"A compassionate and truthful approach to marriage that allows couples—and families—to move beyond the clash of egos to expansive love and joy. We highly recommend this wonderful book."—Hugh and Gail Prather, authors of Notes to Each Other and I Will Never Leave You

"I very much appreciate Walters' vision of marriage as a means of bringing out the best in each partner. In the past, most marriages have been comfort-oriented, not expansion-oriented. Partners need to aspire in themselves, and to inspire one another, to live at their highest potential."—Susan M. Campbell, PhD, author of The Couple's Journey and Beyond the Power Struggle

"Having taught marriage courses in colleges and universities for thirty years. I regard this as the best short marriage book I know. Its soft, loving, teaching, caring tone impressed me very much. The content is excellent, the writing is excellent, all of which adds up to a successful formula for a number one book."—William E. Hartman, PhD, Director, Center for Marital and Sexual Studies, Long Beach, CA
