= Intriguing Ideas & Unique Perspective
Reviewer: The Rebecca Review.com
“If flirting were a car, the
man has his hands on the steering wheel. The woman has her feet
on the accelerator and brake pedals. He decides where they are
going. She decides how fast." ~Thomas David Kehoe
Dating is a journey into the unknown. Not only do you have to
access your personal beliefs, you also have to equip yourself
with dating knowledge.
Men now expect a woman to call them part of the time, while
some women are sometimes still waiting at home for men to call
them. This can promote frustration as men and women struggle to
fit into the new modern dating pattern.
Men and women are traditionally hardwired for fixed masculine
and feminine roles. In “Hearts and Minds,” Thomas David
Kehoe shows how men and women are capable of using both
masculine and feminine energy to improve their relationships.
The authors has includes some intriguing facts and
The Ancient Greeks had six words for love – we need or
give various types of love in different stages of our lives.
Is he/she just your friend or are you really dating? How
can you tell?
How do you play the dating game?
How do you make the object of your desire want you?
Does speed dating work?
When should you call her?
The first section of the book is essential in order to
understand the terms used later and casually throughout. The
writing builds upon itself in such a way that I was amazed at
the organization and fluid association of thoughts.
The book is divided into four main sections:
The Evolution of the Human Brain
How Women Select Men
How Men Select Women
How Our Ancestors Lived
Monogamy and Polygamy
Childhood – Seeking Unconditional Love
Adolescence-Seeking Romantic Love
Adulthood-Families and Forgiveness
Where Couples Met
How to Write a Personal Ad
Becoming a Couple
Conflict in Relationships
Emotional Control Systems
The Archetypes section is fascinating. You will be able to
analyze your own relationships. There are 7 couples to analyze.
These personality types have become recognizable through history
and here these archetypes appear in the ancient world as gods.
They are amazingly true!
I also enjoyed the humor in this book. There was one point
when I was laughing so hard I could hardly see the page. Thomas
David Kehoe displays great creativity and has a wicked streak of
wit. The scientific explanations made complete sense. You will
find wonderful quotes, entire passages and bold headings that
organize the thoughts beautifully.
Once I started reading, I could not put this book down. I
became intellectually intrigued and learned interesting facts
not found in other relationships books. This is a truly unique
look at how men and women interact and how you can find a
relationship of the soul.
Your Power to Create
What You Want vs. Who You Are, February 27, 2007
Caroline Myss takes the idea of manifestation to task as she
plays the role of cosmic historian, drawing on the past in order
to predict the future. She explores the idea of "creating
our own reality" and uncovers the origin of this empowering
With precision, she sweeps aside the accoutrements of new age
manifestation practices that focus more on what you want and how
to get it now. Caroline Myss has the wisdom to see that who you
are and what you are here to accomplish is more important than
temporary satisfaction through material possessions. She truly
gets to the heart of the matter and addresses life purpose from
a new and exciting angle.
I really enjoyed her discussion of ego narcissism, the
entitlement spiritual culture, wealth, human spiritual
evolution, quantum physics, revolution and involution, divine
guidance, health and unlocking creative power.
If you are interested in learning about a more authentic view of
manifestation, this presents a wise, thoughtful approach that
clears the way for you to live the life you have always imagined
with incredible spiritual rewards. Money won't bring true
happiness, but living your purpose will bring you true peace.
The more I listen to the teachings of Caroline Myss, the more I
understand my own life. Not only does this CD set address the
issues of creating your reality, it also presents a global view
of our current spiritual reality within the concept of spiritual
