Sunday Night Common Sense

I've reviewed a fabulous book for one of my editors called Vodou Love Magic: A Practical Guide to Love, Sex, and Relationships by Kenaz Filan, which is a book for practitioners and those interested in this belief and value system.

There were incredible quotes from this book and I'd like to share one that I think is so important for many of us.

“By forcing your partner to take responsibility, you are treating him or her like an adult. You are giving the most precious (and most frightening) gift of all—the gift of responsibility and independence, with all that comes with deserved to be loved for yourself, as yourself, and BY yourself."

p. 48-49

  1. Thanks for the kind words about *Vodou Love Magic.* Writing is a lonely business: hearing good things about one's work really helps make all the effort worthwhile. I'm glad you appreciated the message I was trying to convey. Vodou and love should both empower us rather than hold us back.
