Discover how your greatest creative power is also your greatest spiritual power. "All of us possess some electrical and magnetic forces within, and, just like a magnet, we exert a force of attraction and repulsion... Between lovers that magnetic force is particularly powerful and its action has a far-reaching effect.a - Samael Aun Weor In the heart of every religion there are teachings about intimate human relationships, a sacred knowledge about the transformative power of sex, which states that true spiritual mastery is a result of conquering base desires and transforming them into conscious virtues. Harnessing and transforming the most powerful forces within places us on a revolutionary path to spiritual awakening. Every birth is a magical act, performed through sex. Spiritual birth is no exception, and is accomplished through a divine form of sexuality. "The physical union of a man and a woman, in essence, is a supernatural act, a reminiscence of paradise, the most beautiful of all the hymns of praise dedicated to the Creator by the creature; it is the alpha and the omega of all creation.a - Samael Aun Weor * Enter into the sacred mysteries hidden in all major religions * Learn to practice the ancient science that inspired Tantra, Alchemy, Taoism, and other traditions * Filled with lively, entertaining stories, and practical exercises and guidance for personal development

Psychologists and best-selling authors John and Linda Friel have written an enormously readable and infinitely practical book that delves into what makes a relationship enduringly successful. Wherever readers are in their own relationships, this book can improve those relationships dramatically, bringing them immediate and lasting benefits. In the tradition of their bestseller, The 7 Worst Things (Good) Parents Do, the authors examine the behaviors that happy, effective couples display continually. After careful investigation, the Friels synthesized years of clinical work into a manageable list of the most significant patterns of behavior couples must address and embrace if they want to become truly great couples. Recognizing that other patterns and behaviors certainly do exist, when patients come the Friels for help, the core issues illustrated in this book are discussed as the couples move boldly toward improving their relationships—with consistently outstanding results. The authors found that they had not seven, but eight, key items to identify. Here are a few: Be Sexual Be Willing To Divorce Manage Your Fear, Hurt, Shame, And Loneliness Own Your Part (be responsible for creating a great relationship)
