Power Quotes From The Show


"I'm in the 'moment' when I'm unconditionally present. By that, I have a string of several moments put together in which I feel unconditional acceptance and love. That could be acceptance of someone else, of a situation, or of myself. However, if I'm not experiencing unconditional acceptance and love of myself, then I cannot give it to others." - Adam Markel

"We're not taught how to love ourselves and there's no manual to follow to understand what unconditional self-love looks like. So, we become programmed to see ourselves as either incomplete or unworthy based on how we're judged or observing different examples." - Adam Markel

"Intimacy isn't really about the sensual part of the relationship. It's actually about you being vulnerable and feeling comfortable with your true, authentic self. Too many people believe that a relationship will fix them and make them feel whole. We cannot put that burden on someone else; it's our own responsibility to make ourselves feel complete." - Adam Markel

"We express gratitude as a part of our family rituals, to each other, and as much as possible every day. As far as I know, it's the highest form of spiritual practice and it's a blessing to experience that in my relationship with my wife." - Adam Markel

"The things that you try to hide are the thorns in the relationship. When you try to control or sedate them, you begin walking on eggshells to try to avoid the pain. However, pain is a part of life; it's just another thing in the universe. If the pain controls you, then how can you be present when you're trying to avoid it?" - Adam Markel
